The TfL works on two bridges at Hanger Lane are moving to their next phase. Foundations are being laid for the new Waldegrave Road Bridge and South Bridge on the A406.
The first phases of work on Transport for London’s (TfL) scheme to replace Waldegrave Road Bridge and South Bridge in Ealing have now been completed, and the next phase of the project to upgrade the two 100-year old bridges is about to begin. Once complete, in 2011, the two bridges will have new road layouts which will improve traffic flows.
New pedestrian crossings, footways and cycle lanes are also part of the scheme to make this area more pleasant for all road users.
Work began on the project in September 2008 and already new cycle lanes and footways have been constructed between Uxbridge Road and Hamilton Road, Madeley Road and Ealing Village, Freeland Road and Gatcombe Mews and from Gatcombe Mews to Inglis Road.
The construction of the foundations for the new bridges started this month and the construction and assembly of the bridges, along with the demolition of the old bridges, is expected to take until early 2011.
