New walking and cycling bridge consultation opens
Published: Friday 2nd November 18
Residents are invited to a new exhibition to view proposals for a bridge between Nine Elms and Pimlico.
Following consultation in 2017, three possible locations have been shortlisted for a new pedestrian and cycling bridge across the Thames.
From 3 - 10 November an exhibition will be going on tour in Wandsworth, Westminster and Lambeth to show residents and businesses the three proposed crossing points and gather their views.
The bridge would improve access to thousands of new jobs, a new town centre with two new Tube stations and shopping and leisure facilities in Nine Elms.
In addition to encouraging healthier and cleaner travel, the bridge would meet a demand for more pedestrian and cycle routes in line with the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy.
The consultation events will be held on:
Saturday November 3, 2018, 10am to 3pm
Park Court Clubroom, Battersea Park Road, Doddington Estate, Wandsworth, SW11 4LD
Tuesday November 6, 2018, 3pm to 8pm
Bolney Meadow Community Centre, 31 Bolney Street, Lambeth, SW8 1EZ
Wednesday November 7, 2018, 3pm to 8pm
St George’s Patmore Church, 11 Patmore Street, Wandsworth, SW8 4JD
Friday November 9, 2018, 3pm to 8pm
110 Rochester Row, City of Westminster, SW1P 1JP
Saturday November 10, 10am to 3pm

Following the consultation and technical surveys, one preferred location will be recommended to Wandsworth Council in 2019 so that the council can consider the next steps.
