Driving

Until early 2020, the A40 will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes for westbound traffic, 24 hours a day during works.

From 26 October to 24 November, the left turn slip from the westbound A40 into Leamington Park will be closed.

Queueing is expected to be longer, and impacts to traffic more pronounced, in the PM peak periods for westbound traffic.

View the construction area and live traffic conditions on our traffic status map.

Driving through the area

Expect delays while travelling westbound on the A40 until early 2020, especially during PM peak periods (weekdays 14:00 - 18:00pm). Plan ahead, travel outside peak periods, and leave extra time for your journey. 

Consider alternative ways of travelling, especially the Tube.

Local traffic

If you are driving, plan ahead, travel outside peak periods, and allow more time for your journey.

Consider alternative ways of travelling, especially the Tube and cycling.

Deliveries and servicing

Speak to your supplier about whether they can re-time deliveries and servicing trips to outside PM peak hours.

Tube

Tube services are unaffected by the works.

The Tube will be one of the best ways of making journeys to and from the area during these works.


Walking

Footpaths and pedestrian crossings will remain open wherever possible, although some temporary closures or diversions may apply. There will be signs to guide you safely through the works area.

See our map showing walking times between stations on the same Tube line.

Signs will be in place to help cyclists during works.

About the scheme

The Acton to Wood Lane improvement project will create more space for cyclists and pedestrians by widening the existing shared-use path on the southern side of the A40. It will also provide a two-way cycle track next to the path between Savoy Circus and Kathleen Avenue.
