Traffic on both Fulham Road and Kings Road is at a standstill on Tuesday morning due to a series of roadworks in the area.

On Fulham Road, urgent sewer repairs are being carried out at the junction with Finborough Road, causing closure of thhe Finborough Road's northbound lane. This means traffic heading north from Gunter Grove has slowed to a halt along with eastbound traffic on Fulham Road.

On Kings Road, there are roadworks at the junction with Maxwell Road, causing the westbound carriageway to be closed. Temporary traffic lights are in operation, with resulting delays in both directions.

In addition, the northbound lane has been closed at the junction of Warwick Road and Old Brompton Road due to a fire hydrant exchange, and work is also going on further up Kings Road at the junction with Old Church Street, with temporary traffic lights holding up traffic in both directions.

These hold-ups at the eastern end of Fulham come on top of a number of works around Fulham Palace Road, which is causing very slow progress at the western end of the area. This morning, there are hold-ups due to works at the junction of Lillie Road and Munster Road, where there are temporary traffic signals in operation, at Fulham Palace Road and Silverton Road, where drivers are advised to approach the junction with caution as the traffic lights are out, Fulham Palace Road and Yeldham Road where the southbound carriageway is restricted to allow footway improvement works, and Yeldam Road is closed with a diversion into Biscay Road.

There are also continuing delays at the top of Fulham Palace Road at Hammersmith Broadway, where works to build a new slip road mean traffic restrictions are in place on both carriageways, and traffic is very slow moving.
