Cremorne Bridge shortlisted for NCE Bridges Awards 2024

NCE Bridges Awards 2024 - Cremorne Bridge Shortlisted

Cremorne Bridge, formerly known as the Diamond Jubilee Footbridge, has been shortlisted in the NCE Bridges Awards for Best New Bridge Concept Design.

The Awards are an exceptional opportunity for individuals and organisations in the engineering and infrastructure industry to be recognised for their contribution to innovation and excellence. 

As one of 17 categories, Best New Bridge Concept Design seeks to recognise projects anywhere in the world that are at the design stage.  

Cremorne Bridge, London 

Working closely with One World Design Architects and Beckett Rankine, Expedition carried out the initial structural design for the new pedestrian and cycle bridge between Chelsea and Battersea.  

Sympathetic to its context and responsive to the adjacent railway bridge, it would allow greater integration between the north and south areas of the river, and greatly improve the Thames path.  The scheme was proposed as a legacy project and designed as an elegant three-span structure with intersecting arches. 

The project achieved planning approval by Hammersmith & Fulham and Wandsworth Councils in 2013 and construction of foundations on the south side of the river commenced in 2016 before halting due to lack of funding.

The Awards ceremony will be held at Leonardo St Paul’s in London on 18 July.
