LBHF re-opened the roadway of Hammersmith Bridge for bicycles, cargo bikes and e-scooters on Tuesday 13 February.
A 3-metre wide two-way central lane has been built across the bridge. The lane will remain open for ten weeks.
This means that cyclists no longer have to dismount and walk their bikes across, which frees up the footways for pedestrians.
We welcome this move by LBHF, even though it is (at this stage) temporary. We are not sure what will happen at the end of the ten week period. Nevertheless, it's a start!
