Hammersmith Bridge was built in 1887 and has a very high traffic volume for its age, with more than 20,000 vehicles crossing it every day.
The iconic bridge currently has a 7.5 tonne weight restriction, with priority for single decker buses and emergency vehicles.
While the bridge has been refurbished in the past, major intervention is necessary to ensure the bridge is fit for purpose in the future.
