Entrants were encouraged to take inspiration from New York's High Line - an historic elevated railway that was turned into a leafy urban park - to make green links along the river and through the parallel viaduct.

Chris Law, from the Vauxhall Vauxhall One Business Improvement District said:

"There is a lively variation of ideas and many reoccurring themes. Our aim is to help create a great public realm for Vauxhall."

On April 15, a shortlist of three, plus a student winner, will be chosen. The shortlisted four will be asked to submit more detailed proposals.
