A host of global designers from all over the world have submitted their designs for a new bridge linking Nine Elms to Pimlico.

The bridge would span the river between Nine Elms and Pimlico, between the Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges.

The designs, at this point of the competition, are displayed on anonymous basis so that unknown designers can compete with more well-known architecture firms.

Wandsworth Council are asking Londoners to give their views on the design, and say their comments will be fed into the competition jury panel.

The designs are now undergoing a detailed technical and viability assessment.

The next stage will be the shortlisting stage - which will begin in the next few weeks.

Leader of Wansworth Council Ravi Govinda said the designs showed the exceptional talent and imagination of the architects competing.

We challenged the world’s designers to come up with creative solutions to a very complex set of design, engineering and transport challenges. The response is testament to the exceptional talent out there. We have now begun to analyse each proposal in detail and I encourage Londoners to explore these ideas for themselves and to tell us what they think.
