Labour and Conservative Councillors on Westminster Council have voiced cross-party opposition to Wandsworth Council’s proposal for a new pedestrian/cycle bridge from Nine Elms to Pimlico.
Labour Churchill Ward Councillors Jason Williams, Murad Gassanly and Shamim Talukder have raised strong concerns about the damaging impact that the proposed bridge would have on Pimlico’s last remaining piece of public open space by the river.
Councillor Heather Acton, Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Parking, has also written to residents to say;
“Westminster City Council does not support the proposal and our officers have, and continue to express strongly the Council’s opposition to the proposed bridge, on the grounds of its visual and environmental impact including the impact that a new bridge would have at a landing site in Westminster, on traffic flows, pedestrian movement and on residential amenity.”
