Hammersmith Bridge will close for 'urgent repairs' this weekend and will be partially closed until the end of February, with delays and disruption expected

Hammersmith Bridge

Hammersmith Bridge will close tomorrow (Saturday) for the first in a series of weekend road closures.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council began urgent repair work on the bridge last week and will fully close the bridge in both directions on February 8/9, 15/16 and 22/23, from 8am on Saturday to 5am on Monday.

There will no longer be a closure on February 1/2.

The bridge will continue to be partially closed on weekdays until February 28. The southbound lane of the A306 is shut between 7am and 3pm every Monday to Friday to allow essential repairs to the 126-year-old bridge’s wooden decking.

Diversions are via Fulham Palace Road and Putney Bridge for southbound traffic and, during the weekend closures, northbound traffic will be diverted to Chiswick Bridge.
