Have your say: a public exhibition showcases the latest proposed Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge analysis
Following on from four exhibitions held earlier this month in Pimlico and Battersea, you are invited to a further public exhibition in Vauxhall, showcasing early proposals for one of London’s first integrated pedestrian and cycle bridges, which could connect Pimlico and Nine Elms, Battersea.
The event will give you a chance to explore and feedback on the project, as well as setting out the various different bridge landing point options on the southern and northern banks of the Thames.
The exhibition will also explain how the project’s feasibility and business case is being developed and updated, and will share some new analysis on the potential benefits the Bridge could offer in terms of enhancing London’s walking and cycling network, reducing residents’ exposure to harmful pollution and improving safety for those who want to travel on foot or by bike.
The project team recognises the importance of support on both sides of the river and continues to engage directly with residents in Westminster, Lambeth and Wandsworth. The events will help the team better understand the views of local residents and businesses, so the scheme can be developed to address key local concerns.
This project has been many years in the planning, is part of the Mayor’s London Plan and could close the biggest gap between existing river crossings in central London. It is included in the Mayor of London’s draft Transport Strategy (published in June) alongside other new river crossing now being developed as the city strives to enhance its transport network and protect Londoners from harmful air pollution.
This outline bridge design is also one of the most affordable crossings under consideration in London and comes with a £26 million private sector funding commitment.
Copies of the flyer Public Exhibition Invitation – Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge (Vauxhall) July 2017 have been distributed to households and businesses across Lambeth.
Bystrup, working with London architects Robin Snell and Partners, Engineer COWI, and Consultants AECOM, were commissioned by Wandsworth Council following an international design competition to design a Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge, specifically to meet the needs of both pedestrians and cyclists.
