Help Design a "Flyunder" for Hammersmith
Join architects and designers in Lyric Square on Saturday
Visit Lyric Square on Saturday, June 23 between 11am and 5pm and meet local architects and designers and join them in thinking about the future of Hammersmith when the Flyover reaches the end of its life.
The organisers, members of West London Arthictectural Society say they will be looking at how the borough can be reunited by running the A4 from the Cromwell Road to Hogarth roundabout in a tunnel.
And they add: " New housing, new schools, a linear park, anything's possible. We want everybody's ideas.
"There'll be a giant screen showing images of Hammersmith as it was, as it is, as it could become."
Local residents will be invited to sketch and write about their ideas ad well as discussing them, and there will also be games and music from a live band.
This event in Lyric Square is one of the opening events in the London Festival of Architecture, which runs from June 23 until July 8.
This year, the local area has suffered from major traffic disruption as the Hammersmith Flyover was partially closed for urgent repairs. It has now fully reopened, but will need further repairs next year, and Transport for London have said that even with these patch repairs, the 50 year old flyover is coming to the end of its life and will need to be replaced within ten years.
