Hackney bridge lift faulty regularly

Reported via mobile by Andre Pereira at 08:14, Sunday 12 May 2024

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5961284.

The lift between hackney bridge and wallis road is broken more often than not. Could a longer term solution be replacing the lift with a ramp? It is incredibly inconvenient for people with low mobility and people with pram, etc.

  • Dear Andre Pereira,

    Thank you for bringing the issue of the defective lift between Hackney Bridge and Wallis Rd to our attention. We understand the inconvenience this situation poses, especially for individuals with low mobility and those using prams.

    However, it’s important to clarify that this structure does not fall under the jurisdiction of the London Borough of Hackney. Currently, we neither own nor maintain it. Therefore, we recommend that you directly contact the LLDC (London Legacy Development Corporation) regarding this matter. They are responsible for the maintenance and management of this specific area.

    While we empathise with the challenges faced by residents due to the broken lift, we encourage you to contact the LLDC for further assistance.

    Additionally, we will forward your concerns to the LLDC to ensure they are aware of the ongoing issues with the lift. Your feedback is valuable in improving the accessibility and convenience for all residents.
