Transport for London ( TfL) has said it will carry out urgent works in the Chiswick area which may lead to closures and disruption for local residents.

The projects are at Chiswick Bridge, the flyover at Hogarth roundabout, Hammersmith flyover, and the rebuilding of Power Road bridge at Gunnersbury.

A TfL team gave a presentation to the Chiswick Area Forum meeting last week.

Advance works have already started at the Grade II listed Chiswick Bridge which led to public complaints about lack of room for pedestrians and cyclists. Cllr Peter Thompson queried whether the contractor could allow more space for the public TfL said they were using the minimum working space allowed and cyclists would be asked to dismount.

Locals in Chiswick have also complained about trees being cut down at the Hogarth roundabout and TfL has promised to replant them and to send letters of notification in advance of works. The work at Hogarth flyover, which was originally built as a temporary structure, will mean overnight closure at some point in the future.

The TfL team also said that the Power Road bridge work would be completed in sections and they would not have to close off the A406. The current structure was in urgent need of rebuilding and it would be done in sections.
