In answer to a recent Freedom of Information request (ref 1135716) Hammersmith and Fulham Council state that they expect design work for the repair and strengthening work of Hammersmith Bridge to be completed by April 2018.   Can you clarify whether people who use this bridge will have any indication of the expected starting and completion date of this work before the London Borough elections in May 2018?

The Mayor

The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, which owns Hammersmith Bridge, is responsible for managing the programme to repair and strengthen the bridge. Based on the latest information that Transport for London (TfL) has received from the borough, it is anticipated that main construction will start on site in autumn 2019. The scope of the works and associated timeframes will be confirmed once the investigations have concluded and the contract for the work has been awarded, which is expected to happen early next year.


Once these details are finalised, TfL and the borough will work closely together to communicate the plan to the local community and users of the bridge.
