When will the Pell Frischmann proposed temporary Hammersmith Bridge be open to scrutiny as an option?

The temporary waking and cycling crossing – which would be commissioned and built by Transport for London (TfL) and has been initially designed by Pell Frischmann - would ensure Londoners can continue to travel across the Thames on foot or by bike while essential repairs are carried out to restore the original bridge.

TfL is currently undertaking a public engagement exercise, and is keen to hear views from local residents and stakeholders on these proposals. The proposal will then be subject to planning permission from both the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham and Richmond.
