Next step for Nine Elms to Pimlico Bridge following the Colander run design competition...
Wandsworth Council is moving forward with the project for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge. The council believes that the bridge is essential to meeting the city's transport needs, linking Nine Elms and Pimlico, the longest stretch of central London riverbank without a crossing.
According to a TFL feasibility study the bridge has many benefits in that it will connect communities, provide improved transport, encourage walking and cycling, and at a design level underpin the regeneration of nine elms. The exact location is yet to be confirmed but the preference is for it to be close to the site of the new US embassy.
On behalf of Wandsworth Council, Colander Associates launched an international competition in December 2014 and the winning team, led by Danish practice, Bystrup Architecture Design and Engineering, was announced in November 2015. The jury panel was unanimous that their design would make a beautiful addition to the river Thames and we would love to see this project come to fruition.
The bridge now has its own website, to read more visit http://nineelmslondon.com/bridge
