Hammersmith Bridge 'closed indefinitely'

If you have an appointment with us this month, please give yourselves extra time time to get to us as Hammersmith Bridge is to be, 'closed indefinitely' after structural faults have been found.

Both footways will remain open. Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the crossing from Barnes to Hammersmith.

What has happened to the bridge?

Hammersmith Bridge is a Grade II* listed, 132-year-old, structure. It was never designed for modern traffic. Hundreds of daily journeys by heavy buses cause regular distress to the bridge. That’s why we agreed with TfL in 2015 that they would only run one bus in each direction at one time, while we developed a longer-term strengthening plan. But this damage has now reached a critical point.

Closing the bridge is not a decision we’ve taken lightly and we know it will inconvenience many people. We’re sorry for that disruption, but we must put the safety of the public first.
