Flyover Closures for 10 Weekends from 30 May 2014

Transport for London has issued the following information on closures of the Hammersmith flyover:

One-way weekend resurfacing to be carried out on Hammersmith Flyover from 30 May as final phase of maintenance works progress. The Flyover will be closed to traffic in one direction for ten weekends until mid August to allow structure to be fully waterproofed. Work will reduce the need for further maintenance in the future. The directional closures will begin at 22:30 hours on the Friday night and last until 05:00 hours at the latest on the Monday Morning. Diversion routes will be signed during the works and local access below the flyover will not be affected. Works are dependant on weather conditions so check www.tfl.gov.uk/hammersmithflover for weekly updates.

TFL say that the improvement work has been scheduled to ensure it is undertaken with the minimum disruption possible. Affected traffic to be diverted via the A40 Western Avenue. The closures will allow TfL to carry out waterproofing works which cannot be carried out while traffic is using the structure.
