Hammersmith Bridge Taskforce meeting, 13 November 2020

The Taskforce has met again, and has released its latest statement, which you can read by following this link.

It's barely worth reporting, really, since they have made very little progress indeed. But there are two snippets that might be of interest:

We’re pleased to report that TfL will shortly be instructing contractors to carry out immediate mitigations work on the two western pedestals. This is being delivered as part of the overall bridge stabilisation work package.

...and...

The taskforce further noted the progress made by TfL in taking forward the temporary ferry service, following publication of the Prior Information Notice (PIN) to interested parties on 5 November. We remain confident that the ferry will be operational by spring 2021.

So at least some repair work is starting. As for the ferry, I still think it will be a disappointment if it happens at all (see past posts on this subject), but I'll be happy to be proved wrong.
