Putney's already poor traffic situation looks set to be made worse on one day in particular due to a part closure of Putney Bridge.

It is to be partly closed from 4am on Sunday 2 February to 4am on Monday 3 February. The southbound side of the bridge will be shut to general traffic with alternative routes in place.

The northbound side of the bridge will be open to traffic but restricted to one lane only, alternating with southbound buses, so delays are expected.

Bus services in both directions will continue to operate with local diversions and some delays are expected. For more information on bus services during this time, check Transport for London’s journey planner:

The bridge will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists in both directions.

The closure is essential to allow Tideway to safely remove major equipment from their site at Putney Bridge, which requires them to install and use a large crane on the south side of the bridge.

If you have any questions about the closure on Monday 27 January pop over the bridge to Fulham Football Club, Press Room (Stevenage Road) from 4pm to 8pm where representatives of Tideway will be available.

Tideway have thanked residents for their patience while they carry out these essential works and they apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
