20 January 2020
EcoWorld London, Brentford Football Club’s development partner for work on Brentford Community Stadium, has been granted permission to extend the closure of Lionel Road South through to 31 August 2020.
Permission had originally been given to close Lionel Road South to cars, motorcycles and other vehicles until the end of 2019. During this closure, work has been done to enable the connection of utilities and to undertake complex road widening works at the junction of Lionel Road South and the South Circular Road. This is continuing and it will now be necessary to maintain the road closure until August. Permission has been granted by the London Borough of Hounslow.
The road will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists (although cyclists will need to dismount for safety reasons) and will continue to be temporarily closed to cars, motorcycles and other vehicles. During the closure to vehicles, traffic will continue to be diverted via Chiswick High Road (A205) and Great West Road (A4), and via Kew Bridge Road, High Street (Brentford), Ealing Road and Great West Road (A4).
A number of measures will be taken to ensure that road users of Lionel Road South are aware of the closure, including the placement of yellow road signs on approaching roads, street notices along Lionel Road South itself, and notification to the main navigation apps. Residents living close to Lionel Road South will also be told of the ongoing road closure through the latest Brentford Community Stadium Newsletter, being delivered shortly.
