The Hammersmith Flyover was constructed in the early 1960’s and is situated in West London. In December 2011, the post tensioning tendons that run through the structure were found to have been deteriorating at a significant rate, and in December 2011 the Hammersmith flyover was closed under emergency conditions. The first ‘initial strengthening’ phase of works were completed in summer 2012 prior to the Queen’s Jubilee weekend and the London 2012 Games.
Phase 2 (and final phase) of the works programme to refurbish and strengthen the remaining spans of the bridge commenced in April 2013 and was completed in summer 2015, and were monitored as part of the Constructing Excellence Innovation in Practice programme.
