Ambitious plans for new London footbridge revealed

  • Comment

Recently founded One-World Design has unveiled plans for a new £20 million footbridge next to the Chelsea Railway Bridge in London

Although the practice has yet to secure funding for the so-called Jubilee Bridge which would connect Chelsea Harbour and Battersea, the company’s founder Chris Medland has already met with planners from Wandsworth Council and Hammersmith & Fulham as well as representatives from the Greater London Authority (GLA).

The design team, which is being backed by Hotel Rafayel and Expedition Engineering, is also set to talk to Transport for London, the Environment Agency, and the Port of London Authority ‘with the intention of going through a formal pre-application with the GLA and the borough prior to submission of full plans’.

Medland said he hoped the cycle and footbridge scheme could winning planning permision before June so that it ‘can be announced as a legacy project as part of the [London 2012] celebrations’.
