Sutton Court Road is blocked by roadworks, preventing access to the junction with the A4 from the north side. Thames Water has dug up the road to investigate a mains leak in the stretch of road between Barrowgate Rd and the A4.
Southbound traffic is being diverted along Barrowgate Rd onto the A4, so if you are trying to get to Grove Park or Strand on the Green, or if you are trying to go west on the A4, the redirect takes you east along the A4 to Hogarth roundabout.
Sutton Court Rd is a major north – south route in Chiswick. The next opportunities to cross the A4 in either direction are Hogarth roundabout to the east or Chiswick roundabout to the west. The roadworks began on Wednesday 9 December. It will have a knock on effect for E3 bus journeys.
Should be cleared by Saturday 12 December
Thames Water has told The Chiswick Calendar that the leak, in a six inch diameter mains pipe, was relatively easy to fix. They got the job finished within a day and now just need to repair the road surface, which they expect to have done by Saturday 12 December.
