Our area is caught between three minefields which emerged in mid August 2020, viz:
Thurs 13 Aug: Hammersmith Bridge closed to pedestrians and cyclists due to widening cracks.
Fri 14 Aug: Richmond Park Traffic Management Plan unveiled.
Sat 15 Aug: Revised plans for the Mortlake Brewery unveiled.
The three minefields are interlinked. The closure of Hammersmith Bridge to vehicular traffic in April 2019 had already caused the diversion of traffic to Chiswick Bridge through our area. The Richmond Park Traffic Management Plan prevents such traffic from entering East Sheen via Sheen Gate and the Brewery redevelopment can only be accessed from the A3003 (Lower Richmond Road/Mortlake High Street/ Barnes High Street) which is already heavily gridlocked.
