Cycle bridge moves forward
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.”
