The Ashcombe Road bridge is shut to traffic with some pretty substantial barriers, and will NOT be open outside the hours of 7.30am to 3.30pm, workmen have confirmed. That’s despite info to the contrary supplied by Merton Council via signage.

However, they are hoping to keep at least one pavement open to pedestrian traffic throughout the works, which are scheduled to run until late September. And you can get a bike down the pavement too.

Thanks to the Cromwell Road resident who chased up this information for us. Do be sure to pass on any shareable snippets: intel is always appreciated (though it sometimes takes a few days to post online here).
