A virtual presentation and feedback session will be held today (April 2) on TfL's plans for a temporary walking and cycling crossing alongside Hammersmith Bridge.

Repairs continue to take place nearly a year after the bridge was first closed to road vehicles, with the total span of the project expected to take up to three years.

Pedestrians and cyclists are currently able to use the bridge, but a temporary pedestrian and cycle bridge will allow complete closure to ensure repair work is completed as quickly and safely as possible.

Public drop-in sessions to hear information about the plans and present feedback have been dropped amid the coronavirus outbreak.

But a virtual session will now take place instead this afternoon at 4pm via video conferencing application Zoom.

The session 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 give feedback.

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.
