The construction of a new bridge in Nine Elms has moved a step closer, as the potential locations have been narrowed to three.

In 2017, nine possible locations were earmarked following extensive consultation and technical work. These have now been reduced and the exhibitions will enable residents to give the project team their opinions before a final location is recommended to Wandsworth Council.

The proposed bridge is designed to meet the needs of London's growing population, improve air quality and create a safe, sustainable transport method for pedestrians and cyclists.

Public exhibitions are set to be held throughout November on both sides of the river. Two of the consultations will be held in Wandsworth on November 3 at Park Court Clubroom and November 7 at St George's Patmore Church.

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.”

The three proposed locations are: Pimlico Gardens to Bourne Valley Wharf, Dolphin Square to Prescot Wharf and Grosvenor Road/Claverton Street to Kirtling Street.
