Rotherhithe Bridge, London – Projects
- Transport & Infrastructure
- reForm Architects
Rotherhithe Bridge is an innovative design produced in collaboration with reFrom Architects for the longest bascule opening bridge in the world. The pedestrian and cycle bridge will provide a much needed link over the River Thames between Canary Wharf and Rotherhithe making sustainable transport a life changing option for thousands of London commuters.
In collaboration with Sustrans the team completed and published a feasibility study back in 2015 which shows that building the bridge would cut commuting times, relieve congestion on other parts of the transport network, reduce pollution and connect the people of Rotherhithe to the Jubilee Line, the DLR and Crossrail. Extensive consultation has taken place with Transport for London, London Underground, the Port of London Authority and the Canal & River Trust to develop a cost effective adaptable scheme.
Work continues to promote the design which heralds a new chapter in the life of the river Thames.
