Developers are looking for residents to help them determine where the Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge could be built.
The foot bridge is set to connect pedestrians to and from Vauxhall. A shortlist of three possible locations have been drawn up.
Option one goes from Bourne Valley Wharf to Pimlico Gardens, option two starts at Prescot Wharf to Dolphin Square and option three spans Kirtling Street to Grosvenor Road. Councillor Rory O’Broin, Wandsworth council cabinet member for economic development, skills and employment said: “The Nine Elms Pimlico Bridge has been identified by the draft London Plan as a crucial piece of infrastructure for our growing city.
We are excited to show people the three possible locations that have been shortlisted and look forward to receiving the comments of people from across the capital as we progress to a recommended location for this fantastic bridge.”
The consultations will take place at Park Court Clubroom, Battersea Park Road, Doddington Estate on Saturday, November 3, Bolney Meadow Community Centre, 31 Bolney Street on Tuesday, November 6 and St George’s Patmore Church, 11 Patmore Street on Wednesday, November 7.
