It looks like we are going to lose part-time vehicle access to Ashcombe Road bridge for two months, with reinforcement works due to start on Monday July 24, 2017, and end on September 24. The bridge will be shut between 7.30am and 3.30pm.

The ‘current roadworks’ page on Merton Council’s website disagrees with the street sign so is still wrong (works had previously been listed as taking place over Wimbledon fortnight), but quite useful for knowing which roads will be closed for roadworks and when. Although of course those dates can’t be relied on, making it rather less useful.
