East London River Crossing 1997 and 2014 (for 2025 delivery)

I have just completed composing a formal consultation response to Transport for London on their latest proposals for new East London River Crossings.

Purely by chance I was tidying up some papers at the weekend and came across an artist’s impression of a previous proposed East London River Crossing, so thought I would share it here:

East London River Crossing 1997

I think it dates from 1997. Getting on for 20 wasted years because ‘we’ couldn’t come up with an acceptable scheme.

Note the ‘waste land’ around the bridge’s approaches. Another lack of imagination which I hope we will not be repeating. Bridges and their approaches do not have to sterilize an area if an integrated, holistic, approach is taken using a Total-Landscape methodology.
