Plans To Bridge The Gap Between Chelsea And Nine Elms

Plans for a bridge connecting Chelsea to Nine Elms may well turn from an idea to reality, with the launch of a design competition. Wandsworth council and Transport for London have launched the competition, Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth council, told BDonline “ The more crossings we create the more vitality we give the city. It will give easy access to previously restricted areas.”  He also went on to describe the bridge as “a new icon”.

The proposed bridge will be for pedestrian and cycle access only and will span from the US Embassy across the river to Chelsea. According to BDonline and Architects Journal the design competition will be launched at the end of 2013.
