Lord Brabazon of Tara

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they expect Hammersmith Bridge to reopen to traffic.

Baroness Hayman

Arrangements for reopening Hammersmith Bridge are the responsibility of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. I understand that the borough's programme of strengthening work is due to be completed by the end of the summer of 1999. Whilst the works are in hand, the borough intends to initiate discussions on the future use of the bridge.
