On 17 July 2021 the bridge reopened to pedestrians and cyclists after 337 days!
What joy! What a renewed
sense of freedom!
But... with the funding for repair STILL not in place this could be a short-lived respite.
HBSOS will continue to push the Govt and LBH&F to come to an agreement on this and fulfil their joint commitments to undertake a full repair of the bridge asap

Solution To Hammersmith Bridge

We are a group of local residents campaigning for Hammersmith Bridge.
We are all unpaid volunteers with no political affiliations. We are a pressure group - not a charity - seeking to get the situation resolved as quickly as possible for our community.
See who's on our Steering Group here
Our campaign has two main objectives
What We Want
First and foremost we need an immediate stop-gap crossing, such as a ferry service or a Bailey bridge, to enable local residents and commuters to cross the Thames here again before 2021.
The closure is having a severe impact on our community's ability to access basic daily needs: schools, work, medical services, shops and transport networks etc. We need a river crossing re-established urgently!
Temporary Bridge and Hammersmith Bridge Repairs
Following the stop-gap crossing a temporary bridge (as already designed and planned) needs to be constructed for pedestrians and cyclists in order to speed up the swift and safe repair and re-opening of Hammersmith Bridge to all traffic.
We want this historic bridge to be repaired and brought back to its full functionality, and to provide many more years of service at such a vital river crossing location.
