TfL’s webinar on Hammersmith’s temporary bridge

Hammersmith Bridge 2

Transport for London (TfL) will hold a webinar on Thursday 2 April at 4pm to give residents an opportunity to share their views on the proposed temporary walking and cycling bridge.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, previous plans for public drop-in sessions for residents to find out more about the proposals have been cancelled.

Instead, a public webinar will take place on Thursday. The webinar will involve a presentation by TfL’s Head of Major Projects, David Rowe, as well as the opportunity to put questions to a TfL panel and to share your views in a feedback session.

Hammersmith Bridge is currently closed to motorised traffic whilst it receives extensive repairs. Pedestrians and cyclists are currently able to use Hammersmith Bridge, but a temporary pedestrian and cycle bridge will allow complete closure to ensure repair work is completed as quickly and safely as possible.

The proposed temporary bridge is a seven metre-wide, prefabricated steel structure, supported by two piers in the river. The bridge would be step free, with a 5.5 metre-wide surface for people walking and cycling. It would be accessed by shallow ramps from Queen Caroline Street on the Hammersmith side and from close to the junction of Castelnau and Riverview Gardens on the Barnes side.
