The Gallery | Nine Elms footbridge shortlist

Wandsworth Council has revealed the four bridge designs that have made it to the second stage of the Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge competition.

The finalists were picked from 74 entries by the competition’s jury and was based on feedback from more than 1,000 people who responded to stage on public exhibitions.

The next stage involves the shorlistees developing their initial ideas into detailed design with the winner to be announced in autumn.

Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia said: “Congratulations to our shortlisted teams and I look forward to seeing their initial ideas developed further. The devil will be in the detail and the next stage will show us whether these four highly skilled and innovative design teams can meet the complex challenges this project presents.”

The bridge is part of the £15bn Nine Elms scheme to regeneration of the area between Lambeth and Chelsea bridges. A Tfl study suggested that the Nine Elms to Pimlico footbridge has “a strong business case and would provide another valuable route through central London to support the shift towards zero emission, sustainable travel options”.

The competition is being run by Colander and follows OJEU public sector procurement processes.
