The works will include:
- The removal of the existing southern (Westbourne Park Villas) footbridge span and staircase;
- The installation of a new southern footbridge span and staircase;
- The installation of a new disability compliant ramp to the new southern footbridge span
The footbridge is proposed to be totally closed to pedestrians between Saturday 23 July and Thursday 25 August 2016. This closure period coincides with the school holiday period as the footbridge is heavily used by students at the Westminster Academy. The footbridge will be open before the August Bank Holiday weekend 2016 when the Notting Hill Carnival takes place and pedestrian numbers in the area are higher than usual.
The works are expected to be fully completed and the worksite cleared by Thursday 8 September 2016.
