The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, which owns Hammersmith Bridge, is responsible for managing the programme. Based on the latest programme that Transport for London has received from the borough, it is anticipated that main construction will start on site in autumn 2019. Ahead of that, structural inspections, feasibility and preliminarily works are being completed to inform the nature of the main works required to deliver the best long-term solution for this historic structure.
