Albert Bridge set for weekend closures through August
Published: Friday 27th July 18
Road users are being given advance warning that Albert Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic for essential maintenance work over three weekends in August.
The series of closures by neighbouring Kensington and Chelsea Council, which is responsible for maintaining the bridge, will be staged over the weekends of August 4 & 5, August 11 & 12 and finally August 18 & 19.
On these three weekends the bridge will close at 7am on the Saturday and reopen at 7am on the Monday.
One footway will remain open for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists at all times but no vehicles will be permitted to cross it. Albert Bridge is not on any bus routes so no buses will be diverted, although delays in the area are likely.
Vehicle traffic will be diverted via Chelsea Bridge and Battersea Bridge.
