Ever thought that London needs a new bridge that people can use to cross the River Thames? Well architect Thomas Heatherwick along with actress Johanna Lumley has designed a great new landmark for the capital called ‘Garden Bridge‘. The design comes in as a answer to the Transport for London’s call for way to improve pedestrian links across the river. The new design will start at Temple tube station on the north side and link to the ITV tower on the South Bank. Lord Mervyn Davies – Chairman of The Garden Bridge Trust has said “This is the first major milestone for the project and marks a very clear intent to create a new landmark for London. The scheme has been shaped and developed into a proposal that will contribute significantly to the future of London’s development and we are committed to ensuring the Garden Bridge will be something that London can be proud of….. Our role is to take this project forward and to raise the necessary funds to build the bridge by the end of 2017.” Peep a couple more pics of the proposed design on the flipside.
