Politician ‘extremely worried’ over Knight’s Rotherhithe bridge role


Perhaps more concerning is that the Arcadis/Knight study effectively ruled out the option of an enhanced ferry service without first consulting Thames Clippers who run the existing Rotherhithe ferry. Had they consulted Thames Clippers (or any other ferry expert) they would have learnt that an enhanced ferry service would be very much cheaper than a bridge, could run at 3 min intervals and have a comparable crossing time. It could also use zero emission vessels and be delivered by early 2021. Sadiq Khan (rightly) insisted on applying a value for money test to the Garden Bridge; he should apply the same test to the Rotherhithe-Canary Wharf crossing.
