Transport for London (TfL) is working closely with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, the owners of Hammersmith Bridge, to determine the best course of action for it.

The current stage of work includes structural investigations and the development of repair and strengthening options, including their costs. Until these activities are completed, the option and associated funding requirement remains uncertain. However, TfL has made a provisional allocation in the 2017 Business Plan.
