Hammersmith & Fulham

Streetspace for London

We are working with your borough to widen pavements at town centres and transport hubs, create temporary cycle routes on our transport network and create low traffic neighbourhoods.

Pavements have been widened on King Street to let people get in and out of local shops and services more easily.

Latest changes to travel

Here are some changes to your travel around London you should know about including:

Funding for your borough

We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.

Local Implementation Plan (LIP)

As part of our recent funding settlement, we have allocated a total of £23.1m for LIP Corridor funding across London for the period of 31 October 2020 to 31 March 2021. The amount apportioned to your borough is outlined in the latest LIP allocation letter below.

LIP targets for Hammersmith & Fulham

Each borough has set targets in their LIP against the Mayor's Transport Strategy outcomes - we track and report on progress against these targets in the LIP3 MTS outcomes borough data pack.

For example, the car ownership in the borough was 43,670 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2041 is 43,700.

We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 26,398 daily cycle trips on average starting in Hammersmith & Fulham between 2015 and 2018.

More resident and visitor population figures are on the GLA website.

Vision Zero

We are working with boroughs to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries from all road collisions to zero by 2041. They are responsible for enforcing safe speeds on their roads, as well as leading community programmes to encourage using roads safely. Find out more about Vision Zero.

In 2019 there were 99 individuals killed or seriously injured in Hammersmith & Fulham. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 66.

Find out more about collisions in your borough. Our collision database, COLLSTATS, is now available as a self-service tool for borough officers and the Metropolitan Police. It allows site specific, borough or London wide collision searches to be made to the most recent validated police data that is available. For access to this database please email CollstatsHelpdesk@tfl.gov.uk.

Helping your community

The Vision Zero dashboard enables organisations and members of the public to more easily access and interpret collision data. In sharing collision data in this way, organisations can better identify the road danger challenges specific to their respective sectors and communities, and work together with us, London's boroughs and other agencies to tackle them.   

The dashboard currently comprises collision data from 2017-2019 and in will soon include future years' data and further analysis capability, for example casualty rates by kilometre travelled.
 

What we're improving in Hammersmith & Fulham

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Hammersmith Bridge - A Hammersmith Bridge Taskforce was set up by the Department for Transport in September 2020 to work towards safely reopening Hammersmith Bridge. The Taskforce is chaired by Baroness Vere and includes representatives from TfL, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, Network Rail, the Greater London Authority and the Port of London Authority
  • Hammersmith Temporary Ferry - Work is ongoing to develop a temporary ferry service to reconnect the communities on both sides of the river impacted by the current closure of Hammersmith Bridge

Bus network changes

From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.

Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)

From 25 October 2021, the central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)  is expanding to create a single, larger zone up to the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205). This is part of the commitment by the Mayor and ourselves to help every Londoner breathe cleaner air.

Four out of five cars already meet the ULEZ emissions standards, but we need owners of the remaining polluting cars, motorcycles, lighter vans and minibuses to take action by checking their vehicle.
