Locations shortlisted for Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge
Published: Wednesday 17th October 18
Three possible location options have been identified for a new bridge between Nine Elms and Pimlico.
The proposed pedestrian and cycle bridge is designed to meet the needs of a growing London for improved air quality and safe, sustainable transport methods.
Public exhibitions will be held on both sides of the River Thames in November as the consultation continues to find the best location for the Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge, one of London’s most exciting new infrastructure projects.
The proposed bridge will provide a safe, attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists in London to and from the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area, meeting requirements for improved air quality and sustainable transport options.
This rapidly growing new part of the capital will provide thousands of jobs and homes in a new town centre. The Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge will ensure a safe, attractive route across the river, providing healthier travel options for communities on both sides of the Thames.
Cllr Rory O’Broin, Wandsworth Council Cabinet member for Economic Development, Skills and Employment said: "The Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge has been identified by the draft London Plan as a crucial piece of infrastructure for our growing city.
"Londoners will benefit from direct cycling and walking to Nine Elms over a beautifully designed bridge that enables them to easily access the 25,000 new jobs, leisure attractions and green spaces that we are creating.
"We are excited to show people the three possible locations that have been shortlisted and look forward to receiving the comments of people from across the capital as we progress to a recommended location for this fantastic bridge."
Following extensive consultation and technical work undertaken in 2017 the original nine possible locations have been reduced to three and the exhibition will enable local residents to give the project team their opinions ahead of a final, preferred location being recommended to Wandsworth Council in 2019.
