Motion text

That this House recognises the closure of Hammersmith Bridge to motor traffic has disproportionately impacted older and less mobile people; acknowledges that the closure has had a negative impact on these groups' access to shops, health services, and public transport; recognises the temporary pedicab service that was put in place when the Bridge first closed as having provided a valuable community service; notes the introduction of the Pedicabs (London) Bill represents a timely opportunity to restore this service with Government support; and calls on the Department for Transport to work with local and regional authorities to introduce a new scheme when the carriageway reopens in early 2024.
