Hammersmith Bridge cycle lane to close from 28th May

The temporary two-way cycle lane on Hammersmith Bridge will be closed from 28th May, so that engineers can resume stabilisation works on the Grade II listed structure.

As part of the works, LBHF will install a new, more permanent cycle lane, reportedly costing around £3 million. This will open later in the year, once the stabilisation work is complete.

Five years of freedom from cars!

It's been five years since Hammersmith Bridge was closed to motor traffic.

Five years of reduced traffic, not only on Hammersmith Bridge (obviously) but in the surrounding area too. Five years of reduced pollution and congestion.

Five years that have shown there's no need for cars to be allowed to cross Hammersmith Bridge.

So let's celebrate our freedom from cars and say: keep Hammersmith Bridge car-free!
