Hammersmith Bridge illumated bright red in Valentine’s Day message to Government

Hammersmith Bridge in London has been illuminated bright red in a Valentine’s Day stunt aimed at highlighting ongoing delays to its repair. The 133-year-old west London bridge has been closed to traffic since April 2019 when cracks appeared in its pedestals. It then closed to pedestrian, cyclist and river traffic in August after a heatwave caused the faults to “significantly increase”.
