Hammersmith Bridge Taskforce meeting and FAQ

The sixth meeting of the Hammersmith Bridge Taskforce was held yesterday, Thursday 29 October.

From the statement:

Dana Skelley, speaking on behalf of the Hammersmith Bridge Taskforce, said:

The taskforce held another productive meeting yesterday. The group discussed the constructive Zoom meeting held with members of the public on Tuesday night and the latest thinking from the engineers.

This thinking focused on recent modelling and the installation of the temporary system to control the temperature of the chains on the bridge. We were also pleased to hear that several engineering reports, including Professor Norman Fleck’s, will be presented to the taskforce shortly to help inform the best way forward.

But, I'm afraid, all of the above can be summed up by saying they haven't done much. For all the promises given by various Tories over recent weeks and months, things are proceeding at a glacial pace.
