Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge

Closed 19 Nov 2018

Opened 2 Nov 2018

Results Updated 13 Mar 2019

Background

The construction of a new pedestrian and cycle bridge across the River Thames, connecting the new homes, businesses and visitors to Nine Elms with neighbourhoods and districts on the north bank, is part of a package of transport improvements set out in the Opportunity Area Planning Framework to ensure the area is highly accessible and connected with the rest of central London.

This new bridge across the Thames would also meet the demand for high quality, safe, mixed cycling and pedestrian routes as identified by the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy (2018), and the Draft London Plan (2017). It would also encourage healthier travel for communities on both sides of the river and make a positive contribution to tackling air pollution.

Decision

Following initial consultation in 2017, three shortlisted location options were examined in 2018 through public and stakeholder consultation, technical appraisals and development of concept designs for each potential location.

On 13 February 2019, the council’s Finance and Corporate Resources Overview and Scrutiny Committee accepted the bridge design team’s recommendation of a crossing between Grosvenor Road (Claverton Street) on the north bank, to Kirtling Street near Battersea Power Station on the south bank (known as Location 4C) – as the preferred location for the Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge.

Next steps

No further money is sought at this stage so further technical validation work carried out in 2019 will be contained within the existing budget. The work programme will then be paused with any instruction for a re-start to be brought back to the council’s Finance and Corporate Resources Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

Overview

Wandsworth Council is proposing a pedestrian and cycle bridge to connect Westminster and the new neighbourhood emerging in Nine Elms as well as the existing communities south of the river.

The connection will improve access to this new shopping, restaurant and cultural district, as well as the new green spaces, thousands of jobs and Northern Line stations.

Following consultation in 2017 on nine possible locations between Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges we have now selected three location options for further exploration.

We want to find out what you think about this new car free bridge so are holding public exhibitions across Wandsworth, Westminster and Lambeth.
