Transport for London (TfL) has announced its revised schedule for programme of lane closures on the A4.

The project to repair the Cromwell Road Rail Bridge in Chiswick had to be suspended to allow Queen Elizabeth’s funeral cortege to pass through the area without delay. This has put the project back by a week and, although the current schedule still envisages completion before Christmas, TfL now has contingency plans for further lane closures in January.

The latest schedule indicates that the worst of the congestion in the local area is likely to be seen between 23 October and 2 December when restrictions in both directions are in force.

The work on the road will resume on Sunday evening with a full westbound closure of the A4 between Chiswick Roundabout and Hogarth Roundabout starting at 10pm on 25 September and ending at 5am on Monday morning (26 September).

The following night there will be a full eastbound closure of the M4 from Junction 3 to Junction 1 (Chiswick Roundabout) which is scheduled to end at 5am on Tuesday morning (27 September).

From then until 23 October there will be one lane of traffic on the west bound carriageway and two lanes on the eastbound carriageway. Up until this point there have been no lane restrictions eastbound. The slip road to join A4 eastbound at Chiswick Roundabout will be closed and traffic heading for Hogarth Roundabout is likely to be diverted along Chiswick High Road.

At 10pm on 23 October there will be another full eastbound closure of the road from junction 3 of the M4 to Chiswick Roundabout with the road reopening at 5am on Monday morning (24 October).

From 24 October, the westbound carriageway is expected to fully reopen which should mitigate the severe traffic congestion that has been seen in Chiswick recently. Restrictions on the eastbound carriageway will remain with the road reduced to two lanes until 2 December.

Once this phase is complete two full closures of the M4 and A4 eastbound between junction 2 and Hogarth Roundabout will be required over the weekend. These will commence at 11pm on Friday and the road will reopen at 5am on Monday mornings.

At the moment these high impact closures are due to take place on Friday 2 December to Monday 5 December/Friday 9 December to Monday 12 December. However, should there be any further delays in the project it is possible that closures will continue into January 2023 although they will not take place over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

TfL says that while it promises to make every effort to finish the works on time poor weather conditions may mean it needs to reschedule at short notice.
