Transport for London (TfL) has not formally received a revised Beckett Rankine proposal.
TfL and Hammersmith & Fulham Council have both concluded that building a temporary bridge for motorised vehicles would require a substantially larger structure in the river, and would be more expensive and disruptive to build, as opposed to a temporary bridge for pedestrians and cycles.
It would also either require traffic to be redirected through residential streets, the possible acquisition and demolition of private property, or the use of existing green space. It could also block and further constrain the navigational channel for river traffic, due to the need for more piers in the river.
