Have your say on where the new car-free crossing is located
Three possible location options have been identified for the new pedestrian and cycle bridge between Nine Elms and Pimlico.
Public exhibitions will be held on both sides of the Thames in November as the consultation continues to find the best location.
The proposed bridge aims to provide a safe and attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists in London to and from Nine Elms, meeting requirements for improved air quality and sustainable transport options.
A world class Design Team led by Denmark’s Bystrup Architecture Design and Engineering will work with London Architects Robin Snell and Partners, engineer COWI, and consultants AECOM to build the bridge. The team has been commissioned by Wandsworth Council and is supported by the Mayor's London Plan. £26 million for the project is being raised through private funding via the development of Nine Elms and, according to a TfL feasibility study, the project would pay for itself twice over in terms of reduced journey times and other benefits.

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.
