|Flyover Reopened At Hogarth Roundabout|
Remedial work carried out overnight by engineers
The flyover at the Hogarth Roundabout in Chiswick has reopened today (Oct 30) following remedial work overnight.
TfL had closed the flyover yesterday, declaring it structurally unsafe following an inspection after the high winds.
The flyover was declared safe to use before lunchtime today.
A planned scheme to replace the concrete, the decking and parapets will be brought forward and carried out next year, according to TfL.
Garrett Emmerson, Chief Operating Officer for Surface Transport at TfL, said: "Following Monday’s stormy weather, inspection works of the Hogarth Flyover revealed damage to one of the structural concrete slabs which forms the roadway. Engineers carried out a detailed inspection of the damage, both above and below the flyover, and remedial work was carried out overnight to allow the Hogarth Flyover to reopen early this morning. The planned scheme to replace the concrete, the decking and parapets will be brought forward and carried out next year."
Traffic had been diverted through the roundabout which had led to long queues back almost as far as Chiswick Bridge and as far as the Hammersmith flyover junction last night during busy periods. Traffic heading west along the A316 had been affected since early yesterday morning.
