From the Evening Standard:
A cost-sharing deal to get Hammersmith bridge reopened has been set out by Grant Shapps. The Department for Transport says it is willing to pay a third of the cost of getting the bridge reopened – and expects Hammersmith and Fulham council and Transport for London to pay a third each too.
However Steve Cowan, Labour leader of the the council, described the offer as “party political game-playing” and indicated he was not prepared to foot the council’s share of the bill if it meant hefty council tax rises for residents.
