C9 phase 3B goes ahead despite major roadworks on the A4
LB Hounslow is still planning to go ahead with the next phase of work on C9 in Chiswick High Rd in September despite major roadworks on the A4.
Transport for London is carrying out essential maintenance on the Cromwell Rd Railway Bridge over the railway line that runs between Gunnersbury and Kew Gardens. The works starting on Friday 5 August will last until the end of the year.
Traffic is likely to be displaced from the A4 onto Chiswick High Rd at the same time as they are putting in new bus shelters and digging up side crossings in the next phase of work on C9 to make the cycleway a permanent fixture.
