Hammersmith and Fulham Council have informed us that they have had to urgently close the bridge to all traffic because of safety concerns. Their weekly safety checks have revealed critical faults. Please avoid the area.
Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to cross. Diversions are in place for motorists, including buses. Diversion details can be found on the TfL website.
We will be working with both Hammersmith and Fulham Council and TfL to ensure that updates are communicated to residents in Richmond and that bridge repairs are carried out as a matter of urgency.
