Following a public consultation and concerns from businesses in Hampton Wick, Network Rail have decided on the longer, partial road closure scheme that will include full closure over some weekends.
To minimise the impact, the first of the bridge repairs are due to start at the same time as schools break up for their summer holidays – work is planned from the 26th July 2010 for 15 weeks.
Buses will be diverted in a similar plan to the temporary closure earlier this month and when not fully closed, traffic will be managed by using temporary traffic lights below the bridge during Mon-Fri and weekends 8am-6pm.
Traffic using Upper Teddington Road will still be able to turn onto Vicarage Road, however due to safety concerns traffic exiting Vicarage Road will only be able to exit right onto the High Street.
This stretch of road is one that TFL is considering as part of a scheme for removal of traffic lights in efforts to get traffic moving more quickly all over London.
Dates of full closure of Upper Teddington Rd and full closure of one of the footpaths from 8am-6pm
Sat 31st July – Sun 1st Aug
Sat 7th Aug – Sun 8th Aug
Sat 14th Aug – Sun 15th Aug
Sat 21st Aug – Sun 22nd 8th Aug
Sat 28th Aug – Sun 29 Aug
