Update at 9.15am:
Hammersmith Flyover is now reopened but in a restricted capacity, with only one lane open in each direction to cars, vans and other light vehicles.
Traffic restrictions are being enforced by a 6ft 6in width restriction at either end of the flyover to prevent large vehicles such as HGVs and coaches from crossing.
The re-opening comes following confirmation from TfL's engineers and experts that the flyover is now safe to take light traffic, while work continues to strengthen key sections of the road.
Motorists are still being advised to avoid the area if possible, as there are still some delays.
