Works to refurbish and strengthen the Grade II listed Chiswick Bridge, will result in some disruption to road users with lane closures in the next few weeks.

Three will be three weekend closures of the bridge. These closures will take place from Saturday morning at 01:00 until Monday morning at 04:00 on the following dates:

  • Saturday 21 February until Monday 23 February 2015
  • Saturday 28 February until Monday 2 March 2015

TfL have been restoring the 80 year old structure for the past several months but they expect the project to be completed by the end of Spring 2015.

During February there will also be a 24-hour lane restriction in both directions to carry out verge works and provide a safe working zone on the footway. During the following times TfL will implement a single lane closure:

•05:00-10:00: two lanes northbound and one lane southbound
•10:00-16:00: one lane northbound and one lane southbound
•16:00-05:00: two lanes southbound, one lane northbound, with revisions to traffic management configuration to allow for two lanes northbound, one lane southbound, depending on traffic conditions.

Survey work carried out in autumn 2012 found that some sections of the bridge parapet and internal structure had significantly deteriorated and needed to be replaced. TfL have been working with local boroughs, English Heritage and the Port of London Authority to develop a programme of works to restore the heritage features and repair the structure of the bridge.

The bridge was opened in July 1933 and carries around 40,000 vehicles, as well as hundreds of cyclists and pedestrians each day.
