Roads and pavements
Organising a street party or fete has never been easier in H&F.
Report problems with roads and pavements, including uneven paving, potholes, faulty street lights, dead animals, pavement obstructions and street cleaning problems.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council wants to improve the borough’s transport network and has launched a campaign called Get H&F Moving.

This transport plan for Hammersmith & Fulham is the second Local Implementation Plan (LIP2), a statutory document. This has been prepared under Section 145 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999, which sets out how a London borough proposes to implement the Mayor’s Transport Strategy in its area.
Gritting and snow clearance
In freezing temperatures we spread a mixture of grit and salt on roads and pavements, which helps to increase traction and melt ice. First we will grit the borough’s busiest roads, including those with bus routes or a high risk of accidents in freezing conditions. We will then grit other routes if necessary.
Warning! You should only travel in bad weather conditions if your journey is absolutely necessary. If there is snow or ice on the ground we advise you to stay indoors until we have been able to grit the roads and pavements. For more advice, please go to the Met Office website's severe weather advice page (opens new window).
