Our overriding focus when planning these essential works has been to keep disruption to a minimum.
We are committed to completing them as quickly and efficiently as possible and will keep the local community and road users informed of progress as we work to deliver these vital improvements.
The Hammersmith flyover will close some weekends next summer to finish off repair work. Before that, night-time lane closures will come into force next month for the final phase of maintenance work.
- In December 2011 engineers found some steel cables had deteriorated due to corrosion caused by water seeping into the structure
- That led to its initial temporary closure the same year and urgent strengthening work, allowing the flyover to fully reopen to traffic in May 2012
