Revealed: Nine Elms bridge finalists’ latest designs


My practice was based in St Georges Square close to the North bank where the proposed bridge will land. I have also lived in the area for many years so know it and Nine elms very well. I think the objectors are wrong. The bridge will open up additional pedestrian and cycle movement across the river which is otherwise a barrier. Greater accessibility will benefit residents and workers on both sides of the river and this proposal should be supported. The indications are that the bridge will be a stunning design which is a further plus. The loss of a part of the riverside garden is a negative factor but not in my opinion of sufficient importance to warrant refusing permission for a scheme that will be of benefit to a wider user than just Pimlico and Nine Elms and an attractive addition to the townscape in that area.
