|Major Road Works Signal Chaos For Kew Bridge|
Road closures due to Transco gas main repairs
Transco will begin undertaking works to repair a gas leak on the north side of Kew Bridge at the traffic signal junction of the A315 Kew Bridge Road and the A205 Kew Bridge from 10.00 a.m. on Monday 17th November.
The work was set to finish on Sunday 23rd however, a council spokesperson today, Friday 21st November, said, "The road works are nearing completion, and traffic restrictions should be lifted first thing tomorrow morning."
The location of the repairs will unfortunately necessitate closing off the right-turn from the A315 Kew Bridge Road onto the A205 southbound, and narrowing the southbound traffic approaching the bridge to one lane.
Traffic heading towards the junction from Brentford and wishing to turn right to enter Strand-on-the-Green or travel south over Kew Bridge will be diverted up to and around Chiswick Roundabout.
Advance warning will be given on variable message signs on the A4, M4 and on the A316 and the traffic signals both at the junction and at the Chiswick Roundabout will be monitored and timings adjusted to maximise traffic flows.
However major delays to traffic can be expected in this area and motorists are advised to seek alternative routes where possible.
