Transport for London (TfL) has been doing all it can to manage the impact of the closure of Hammersmith Bridge and to support the Council in restoring this vital link. TfL and the Council are currently reviewing the feasibility and cost of the temporary foot and cycle bridge and expect to be in a position to make a decision in the coming months.

TfL has already committed £25 million to the project, which could help fund a temporary bridge which would enable the bridge’s refurbishment to proceed unhindered and at the quickest rate possible.
