Friends Bridge closed from 19 April

Hackney Council is undertaking some urgent repair works to Friends Bridge (the big red one leading to Hackney Marshes) starting on the 19 April 2021 for 4-6 weeks. If you walk or cycle this route you will need to use an alternative route.
The Council will be putting up signs in advance of the works, but please pass this onto anyone who may use the bridge.
