Hogarth Flyover to shut for repair work for six weeks

One of Britain's most famous, and earliest, flyovers - in west London - is to close for six weeks for essential repair work.

The Hogarth Flyover, which takes traffic eastbound over the Hogarth Roundabout at Chiswick, will be shut from Saturday July 19 to Sunday August 31.

With nearby Putney Bridge being closed for refurbishment from Monday, traffic is expected to be heavy in the area.

Transport for London said: "Drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys as these works will have an impact on a wider area than the immediate vicinity of the works.

"Where possible, drivers are advised to change their routes and plan ahead to avoid the disruption, particularly during the morning and evening peak during weekdays and if travelling at the weekend."
