Hammersmith Bridge. London.  England

Hammersmith Bridge, spanning the Thames between Hammersmith on the north bank & Barnes on the southern, is a fine example of Victorian engineering. Designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette, it was opened by the Prince of Wales 1887. Increased traffic has caused the bridge to be closed often for repairs and it is closed now, [Sept 2020] even to pedestrians. An estimate £140 million is needed to return it to use by vehicles. A look at the map will show how necessary this is.
