London’s Getting A New Bridge And You Can Choose Where It Goes

TfL have announced plans for a new Thames crossing in east London.

Transport for London have put forward proposals for a new bridge between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf, which will be available for cyclists and pedestrians.

This bridge is one of many possible river crossings coming to London in the future, all intended to improve cross-river connectivity. This particular crossing would provide a direct route between south and east London, and also increase the number of trips being made on foot or by bike. Cos, you know, health.

Although they’ve decided that it’ll be somewhere along the Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf section of the Thames, they want our help deciding on its exact location. Here are the options:

You can take a look at TfL’s detailed proposal, including prospective height, location and design, here. And, until January 8th, you can also have a say on the project, by filling in the survey at the bottom of the page.

In other fancy London development news, Oxford Street is likely to be pedestrianised before the end of 2018.
