TfL warning over closures on one of London’s busiest roads between July and October

TfL has warned drivers to be prepared ahead of multiple closures along one of the capital’s busiest roads. Different parts of A40 ‘Westway’ Westway – which runs through West London carrying more than 90,000 vehicles per day – will be closed between July and October.

Safety maintenance work will replace joints on slip roads to the major A road, between Wood Lane and Marylebone flyovers. TfL says it has planned to minimise disruption, but has warned the diversion routes in place will be incredibly busy, so plan ahead and leave with plenty of time, says MyLondon.

TfL added that it has chosen to do the works during the summer period as “traffic flows into central London are 25 per cent lower”. The work will be carried out in two bursts, the first from Sunday, July 21 to Thursday, August 22, where the eastbound slip road from the Westway Roundabout and the A3220 West Cross Route southbound between the Westway Roundabout and the Holland Park Roundabout will be completely closed.

The second spans from Monday, September 2 to mid-October, where the westbound on slip from the A3220 West Cross Route to the A40 Westway via the Westway Roundabout will be closed. The A3220 West Cross Route from Holland Park Roundabout to the Westway Roundabout will also be closed to northbound traffic.
