Works ‘should’ be completed by 31 August

Update 28 August – the roadworks have been completed and the junciton is open

The Acton Lane road closure is to remain in place for the rest of the month, according to LB Hounslow.

Since Saturday 20 August, there has been no entry to Acton Lane from Chiswick High Road due to Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) installing a new connection to the side of 440 Chiswick High Road. As a result eastbound traffic cannot turn left from Chiswick High Road into Acton Lane and westbound traffic cannot turn right.

Hounslow Council says further work to provide a sewer connection to new buildings in Essex Place is set to continue until Wednesday 31 August. The Traffic Order issued by Hounslow Council allows for the closures to be extended up to six months to allow for remedial works or delays.

Cars are being diverted via Chiswick High Road, Turnham Green Terrace, South Parade and Acton Lane. The closure has added to heavy congestion on the High Road already caused by roadworks on the A4.

More bus strikes are planned over the bank holiday weekend. Traffic came to a standstill on the High Rd on Saturday (20 August), with frayed tempers leading to lots of beeing and people shouting at each other .
