Further maintenance work is requiring a series of daytime closures of Hammersmith Bridge over the February half term. Motorists will be diverted via Chiswick Bridge and Putney Bridge but during previous closures there were significant traffic delays in surrounding areas.

The work is being carried out by Hammersmith and Fulham Council and Transport for London (TfL) and bridge closures are scheduled to run as follows:

Daytime bridge closures:

Saturday 10 February, 8am to 6pm
Sunday 11 February, 8am to 6pm
Monday 12 February, 8am to 6pm

Daytime lane closures (northbound only – Richmond/Barnes towards Hammersmith):

Tuesday 13 February, 8am to 6pm
Wednesday 14 February, 8am to 6pm
Thursday 15 February, 8am to 6pm
Friday 16 February, 8am to 6pm
Full weekend bridge closure: 8am on Saturday 17 February to 6pm on Sunday 18 February

One footway will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists, who will have to dismount to cross.

The following bus services will terminate before the bridge: 33, 209, 283, 419, 485. Passengers can walk across the bridge to resume their journeys. The 72 bus service will be diverted via Chiswick.

Hammersmith Bridge is currently operating under severe weight restrictions with one bus permitted to travel in either direction at any one time. Hammersmith and Fulham Council and TfL are still finalising plans for major repairs to the bridge later in 2018. The current work is essential to ensure the bridge can continue to operate effectively and better inform the design of the final upgrade works.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council (H&F) and TfL have apologised in advance for the noise and congestion this may cause to surrounding roads.

To comment on the repair works, contact H&F Council’s transport team at bridgeproject@lbhf.gov.uk.
