Plans are underway to install the Chiswick Park Footbridge’s three individual spans in the next few months as it moves into Phase Three. The modern steel bridge is due to open in December this year and is on schedule so far.

Construction work began last year after an agreement was signed between Chiswick Park, Hounslow and Ealing Councils, Network Rail and Transport for London.

Since then, two connecting spans of bridge were built on-site, ready to be lifted into place over the railway in June. Later on this month, a 1,500 ton crawler crane will be delivered to allow the operation. The third bridge span will also be built on site in July and is expected to be craned into position in September using the same crawler crane.

‘This is an exciting time for Chiswick Park. The footbridge continues to meet our construction schedule targets and we are very pleased with the progress. We remain focused on the delivery, which will reduce congestion at Gunnersbury tube station and ease the daily commute of over 9,000 workers on the park as well as local residents and visitors’, said Matt Coulson, CEO Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work.

The new pedestrian bridge will reduce walking time between the Business Park and Chiswick Park Tube Station to just four minutes. It will also improve the connection to the wider transport network with the opening of the Elizabeth Line at
