Cy­cle bridge moves for­ward

The Wharf - - Details -

Plans to build a bridge over the Thames be­tween Canada Wa­ter and the Isle Of Dogs are pro­gress­ing, as Trans­port for Lon­don (TfL) pre­pares to find a con­trac­tor for the scheme in the au­tumn.

The bridge is set to be a river cross­ing for pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists, link­ing with ex­ist­ing cy­cle routes and pro­vid­ing an al­ter­na­tive to the Ju­bilee line for those trav­el­ling to and from Ca­nary Wharf.

The Mayor Of Lon­don Sadiq Khan told the Lon­don Assem­bly last week that the project was pro­gress­ing and con­sul­tant Ar­cadis will be work­ing up the de­sign and cost­ing for the new bridge.

The bridge was first sug­gested in 2013 by re­Form Ar­chi­tects and en­gi­neers El­liot Wood. How­ever, Mr Khan said “there may now be in­no­va­tions which are quicker, cheaper and higher qual­ity.”
