The future of Hammersmith Bridge as a world-class walking & cycling link | Rutland Arms | Saturday, 18. May 2019
Hammersmith Bridge could be London's most impressive new walking and cycling provision. It has been traffic-free since early April and this meeting will bring together community, business, and local government stakeholders to discuss the bridge's potential future as an example of world-class walking and cycling infrastructure.
With the Chelsea Flower just around the corner, we have invited the RHS and others to join the dialogue and share ideas for greening bridge over the summer months, showcasing what a permanent walking and cycling bridge could look like. Partners at Meristem Design and Abundance London have been invited to share their ideas for new parklets and native planting on the bridge and at the new public spaces that have been opened up at either end. The Hammersmith BID and its members will also be invited to share views on the bridge's future function as an attractive new piece of transport infrastructure and public realm.
Representatives from the neighbourhoods most polluted schools and the Hammersmith and Fulham Air Quality Commission will also be invited to participate in the discussion on how a pedestrian and cycling bridge could catalyse better air quality and more active travel across the borough.
