Current Status

The Mayor gave the unequivocal go-ahead for the bridge on 4th October 2016, with the prospect that it will be completed in 2020.

Although there have been a number of positive messages since the Mayor published his manifesto, the press release refers to this as a “commited crossing” and therefore we can at last assume it will go ahead

We had expected that a design competition would be launched this month to be followed by a procurement excercise.  The Mayor has instead combined these into a single procurement programme next year,  presumably as a way of accelerating the overall process.
