TfL extend Dial-a-Ride for Hammersmith residents with mobility issues

Transport for London is extending its Dial-a-Ride scheme to help residents with mobility issues who live near Hammersmith Bridge.

Hammersmith Bridge was closed to motor vehicles to protect public safety after we discovered long-standing corrosion in critical parts of the suspension structure – something that had occurred over decades, but was only identified by our comprehensive structural integrity review undertaken in the last few years.

We’re working closely with TfL to fully restore the 132-year-old structure.

In the meantime, residents living within one mile of the bridge (see map below) who meet TfL’s criteria can call a dedicated helpline to arrange for assistance to take them to a pre-agreed location on the other side of the river.

For more details, visit TfL’s Dial-a-Ride website.
