Boost in rail passengers following Hammersmith flyover closure

The closure of a key road route into London has boosted rail passengers in the London Thames Valley area, according to First Great Western (FGW).

The firm said the closure of the Hammersmith flyover on the A4 in West London has seen more people travelling to the capital by train.

The route will be closed until early January because of a structural defect.

FGW managing director Mark Hopwood said: "Rail passenger numbers in the London Thames Valley are higher than the same time last year, and it looks like the closure of the Hammersmith Flyover is contributing to that."
