Dear Transport for London,

I would like to ask the following questions about how much money the council has spent on maintaining and checking Hammersmith Bridge, due its known long-standing structural problems.

1. Can you provide me with a breakdown of how much TfL spent on carrying out monitoring and assessments of the condition of Hammersmith Bridge in every financial year since 2013/2014?

2. How much did TfL spend on surveying work on Hammersmith Bridge in every financial year since 2013/2014?

3. How much did TfL spend on repair works to Hammersmith Bridge in each of the years 2016/2017 and 2017/2018?

Yours faithfully,

Owen Sheppard
