Hammersmith Bridge closure – Saturday February 11 to Monday February 20   

Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News,News

Advance warning of disruption due to planned maintenance work on Hammersmith Bridge.

The work is being carried out by Hammersmith and Fulham Council and Transport for London (TfL) and is scheduled to start on Saturday, February 11 and end on Monday February 20 (half term week)

Hammersmith Bridge is currently operating under severe weight restrictions with one bus permitted to travel in either direction at any one time. The work is essential to ensure the bridge can continue to operate effectively in the future.

The works are an interim measure to keep the bridge in use ahead of major repairs scheduled for late 2018. For more information on this project visit

We’re advised that loud equipment will not be used after 8pm and the half term week was chosen in the hopes of minimising impact.

Motorists will be diverted via Chiswick Bridge and Putney Bridge.
Pedestrians & cyclists: both footways will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists who will have to dismount to cross. Pedestrians and cyclists are being advised to take care whilst crossing the bridge as it will be busier than usual. 
Buses: the following bus services will terminate before the bridge: 33, 209, 283, 419, 485. Passengers can walk across the bridge to resume their journeys. For those less mobile the 72 bus service will be diverted via Chiswick.

Commuters can get the latest bus information from TfL at or follow @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter.
