Chiswick High Rd closed between Chiswick Lane and Turnham Green Terrace westbound

Hounslow Council has announced that Hounslow Highway workers discovered a ‘void’ beneath Chiswick High Rd while they were carrying out planned works for cycleway 9 on Chiswick High Road at the junction with Cranbrook Road.

The void was discovered on Thursday 27 October. Workers closed the road as a priority measure to make it safe. LB Hounslow says:

‘The closure of the westbound Chiswick High Road between Chiswick Lane and Turnham Green Terrace is precautionary whilst council staff work with the utility companies and Transport for London to identify the cause and remedy.’

The eastbound route on Chiswick High Road remains open.

‘Staff are working hard to install improved diversions immediately and restore two-way traffic as soon as possible’ they say. ‘However, diversions will be in place for the time being.

‘There will be some disruption to traffic and the council apologises for the inconvenience.’

Further updates will be made available with relevant guidance on the Hounslow Highways and council websites.
