Lyric Square paving to get new lease of life in time for summer

Improvement works on the paved surface of Lyric Square will begin next week.

The work, which will last for approximately four weeks, will require small areas of the Hammersmith square to be fenced off so the contractors can work safely.

The limestone pavement will be ‘grit blasted’ with a special machine that will give it a deep clean while also improving the surface texture.

The paving was first laid when Lyric Square opened in 2005 and has undergone several improvements, but this is the first work to improve the paving surface across the whole square.

Work will take place on the paved surface between Beadon Road and King Street. 

Our contractors will be working Monday to Wednesday, 8am until 6pm, but will not work on Thursdays or Fridays to avoid disrupting the markets. The work will also take place on weekends, from 8am to 4pm.

The improvement works were approved by Hammersmith & Fulham Council in March and follow trials of the grit-blasting technique in the square in 2016.
