Hammersmith Bridge: Repairs and Maintenance
To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the statement by the Leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council that the Council will not pay for the repairs to Hammersmith Bridge, whether they intend to contribute to the cost of the repairs; and what discussions they intend to have with (1) Transport for London, and (2) Hammersmith and Fulham Council, about those bodies' contribution to those repairs.
Answered on: 31 October 2019

Transport in London is devolved and the maintenance of London’s roads is a matter for Transport for London (TfL) and the London Boroughs. The Department has not received a formal request for funds from either the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham or TfL for the repair of Hammersmith Bridge. Should such a request be made, we would consider it with respect to other funding requests, and in view of the devolution settlement for London.
