Motion text

That this House acknowledges that Hammersmith Bridge has been closed to motor traffic since April 2019 and was suddenly closed to all pedestrians and cyclists on 13 August 2020; expresses concern that many residents on both sides of the river have been cut off from their workplaces, schools and health services and notes that there is a critical lack of alternative routes; recognises that as a result of the devastating effect that covid-19 has had on Transport for London (TfL) and local authority budgets, neither Hammersmith and Fulham Council nor TfL have sufficient resources to repair the bridge; and therefore calls on the Department for Transport to urgently provide the funds for the bridge repairs.
