Video | London River Park releases walkthrough

A new video has been released showing what it might be like to walk along the north side of the River Thames if the London River Park scheme gains planning permission next month.

If it does go ahead it is understood that it will be the world’s first ever floating tidal river park. The structure will comprise a series of floating pontoons that will total almost 1km of river walkway.

The walkway’s route from the Millennium Bridge eastward to Custom House is in a section of the Thames described by river regulator Port of London Authority (PLA) as the “busiest part of the river, characterised by a number of bridges in close proximity and strong tidal flows”.

Plans include two 10m wide floating pontoon sections — a 420m long western section between Blackfriars Bridge and Southwark Bridge, and a 540m eastern section between Cannon Street Railway Bridge and Custom House. These are divided by a central inland river bank section about 600m long.
