The Hammersmith Bridge: where are we now, and the potential future

Hammersmith Bridge will have been closed to vehicles for a year on April 10th. While TFL and Hammersmith and Fulham Council are keen to reopen the bridge to vehicles after repairs, many residents are asking that the bridge should remain car-free permanently. At the moment, only cyclists and pedestrians have access and local Greens are broadly supportive of keeping it that way.

Invited speakers:
Siân Berry, Mayoral Candidate for the Green Party
Hamish Steward, Car Free London
Charles Critchell, Fare City
Barnes Community Association
Mums for Lungs, East Sheen

TFL have a consultation - details on this email forwarded by one of our members
