A new £30m pedestrian and cycle bridge looks set to rise up connecting Chelsea and the new major developments taking place at Nine Elms.
The two councils, Wandsworth and Kensington and Chelsea, are planning to launch a competition to construct the bridge.
The scheme to connect the US Embassy to the north side of the River will be launched later this year, with architects already conceiving the design.
Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth council, told property website Building Design: “The more crossings we create the more vitality we give the city. It will give easy access to previously restricted areas.”
In comments to the Architects Journal, Govindia described the project as “a new icon”.
“We have a few engineering things to sort out, and while we have a site for the link on the south of the river, just north of the Embassy, there are potentially a couple [of options] on the northern bank,” he added.
