Road works set to be completed by Sunday 29 October

Closures between Bollo Lane and the Essex Place roundabout near Sainsbury’s, scheduled for later this month, are expected to result in significant traffic disruption.

Hounslow Council has recently announced the implementation of a traffic order, to facilitate the installation of electricity cables for new buildings in the area.  The traffic order is set to remain in effect until the end of the year, which is standard practice for any traffic order to allow for unexpected delays.

A spokesperson for the Council has clarified that the roadworks are scheduled to take place primarily during the upcoming school half-term break, starting on Friday 20 October and concluding on Sunday 29 October.

The closure will begin with Acton Lane’s southbound lane, which will be shut down from Chiswick Park station to Essex Place over the weekend, and is expected to last until Monday, 23 October. During this phase of the works, southbound traffic will be rerouted along South Parade and Turnham Green Terrace.

Starting from Tuesday 24 October, the northbound lane will be closed from the junction with Chiswick Road to the Bollo Lane junction. The Council anticipates the works will be completed by the end of the week. During this time, northbound traffic will be redirected through Turnham Green Terrace and South Parade.

Some have called for the underpass at Fisher’s Lane to be reopened to vehicular traffic during the works, but Ealing Council made the traffic restrictions on Fisher’s Lane Permanent in 2021.
