“Traffic restrictions have been relaxed on certain days to make residents’ lives a bit easier.”

This story has been updated on Monday 8 August 2022.

LB Hounslow has said it will relax vehicle restrictions to Grove Park and Strand on the Green when there are multiple lane closures on the A4 during the summer and autumn roadworks.

Transport for London is carrying out essential maintenance on the Cromwell Rd Railway Bridge on Great West Road (A4) near Harvard Hill from 5 August until December. The works are expected to cause months of traffic congestion and traffic displacement onto other roads in Chiswick.

Cllr Gabriella Giles, one of the councillors for the Riverside ward, told The Chiswick Calendar:

“Effectively, when the closures to the A4 will be for 24 hrs … access to Hartington Road, Staveley Road and Strand-on-the-Green will be granted, and the measures will be lifted to allow for travel.”

Cllr Amy Croft, who also represents Riverside, told us:

“In recognition that the additional measures by TfL will have an impact on residents, the traffic restrictions have been relaxed on certain days to make residents’ lives a bit easier.”

There will be double lane closures on the A4 between 5 August -15 September and between 17 September – 12 October. From Friday 5 August until Wednesday 12 October there will be access permitted from the A316 into Staveley Rd and Hartington Rd and the south circular at Kew Bridge into Thames Rd without permits.

Access will also be relaxed on selective weekends in November and December when there are double lane closures on A4: Saturday 26 November, Saturday 3 December, Saturday 10 December and Sarurday 17 December.

LB Hounslow says: ‘The duration and nature of this measure will be reviewed on a regular basis throughout the duration of the works, and we will reinstate the restrictions earlier than planned, if possible. Any changes will be communicated at the earliest opportunity.’
