Responsibility for bridges

We are not responsible for every bridge in Lewisham.

  • We are responsible for eight road bridges, 19 footbridges and three cycle route bridges.

  • Broadly speaking, Network Rail owns all of the rail-over-road bridges.

  • Transport for London also own some bridges and has an interest in all bridges on red routes (for example, the A2, A20, A205 and A21).
