Hammersmith flyover project will complete in 2015
The final phase of maintenance work on the Hammersmith flyover in London is scheduled to begin next month (October) with completion due in early 2015.
The maintenance project, which began in late 2011, has involved strengthening the flyover’s 16 spans, replacing the bearings carrying the structure, renewing carriageway drainage, and waterproofing and resurfacing the entire structure.
The final phase, which is expected to take 18 months, will involve night-time single lane closures between 10.30pm and 5.00am as well as some weekend closures during summer 2014.
A spokesman for Transport for London (TfL) said the night-time closures were expected to have “no impact on traffic” and stressed there would be “no restrictions on heavy goods vehicles” during the works.
The work on the flyover is part of a £200m spend by TfL on eight structures around London. Once finished, he said, “the flyover will have been completely rebuilt and will last for many, many years.”
