"People who live in the area are the best qualified to assess whether these measures would actually work"

On the evidence of this thread that's exactly 100% wrong.

"either had no choice but to travel on the roads at the time of the closure or didn't know the closure was taking place."

So what you're saying is that despite months of notice and widespread communications by TfL the fault is theirs for not ensuring, personally, that everyone with a car in the south east of England was paying attention and by the way it's all Hounslow's fault for being greedy?  Not a very coherent argument, there.

"suspicion raised elsewhere that Hounslow sees these traffic problems as a revenue opportunity"

Oh really? We get enough conspiracy nonsense from Michael Brown, thanks.

Facts:
- TfL chose to close the bridge at the same time as the District/Overground were cut, for some reason I'd quite like to know (Boat Race and rugby, for my money, but only an FoI or an approach from an MP will tease it out)
- There isn't enough capacity on any diversion route if you close one of the west London Thames bridges, no matter what you do you'll get a jam caused by too many cars on the remaining links
- Quite a lot of people decided to drive either without realising there was going to be a jam regardless of route or being happy to sit in it or trusting to luck
- There were plenty of signs up, but some people still ignored them (mind you 'local traffic only' is open to wide interpretation - 'AVOID CHISWICK' might have been better).
- You're not entitled to your own facts in order to fit some narrative about some public body you want to have a go at.  Sorry.
