TfL are planning to undertake emergency expansion joint replacement work on the Greenford Roundabout Flyover over the Christmas period from 24th Dec – 3rd Jan, this will involve a full closure of the flyover in both directions for approximately 9 days. They envisage continuous 24 hour working over this 9 day period. This method of working has the shortest duration that they can currently achieve and cause the shortest period of inconvenience.
TfL apologise for the short notice stating that the period that has been identified by them using traffic flow data as having the lowest traffic flows of the year so the works will cause the least inconvenience to the travelling public.
The joint has failed therefore this work needs to be undertaken without further delay. Utilising this period removes conflict with a large number of future works that are due to take place in and around the A40 area in the new year.
The works will start at 10pm Christmas eve and continue for 9 days until the joints have been replaced and the carriageway fully reopened by Thursday 3rd January 2013.
Advanced warning signs will be put out on the network as soon as possible to alert members of the public to these works.
Anyone going through the area will have noted that some advanced works are already taking place. Diversion routes during the Christmas period will be signed using the A312, A4 and A406 as well as other restrictions.
