Hammersmith Ferry Route Decided
Yesterday we heard the great news from Transport for London that a ferry operator has been selected to run the Hammersmith Ferry and that the route will be situated next to the Bridge. Thames Clippers will now need to produce a detailed plan showing exactly how the pontoons and boats will operate to help 800 people an hour across the river at peak times.
The proposed route is by far and away the safest option for the ferry and will allow FRBC to carry on with it's normal operations whilst passage under the bridge is closed.

A huge thank you to all of the FRBC community and beyond for helping getting the message across that the safest route for a ferry is as close as possible to the bridge.
