eugh, Citizen M looks rather blunt... I hope it's just the render that doesn't do it justice.

Danish firm Bystrup has been selected to design a new pedestrian and cycle bridge across the River Thames in west London – the same day another crossing was unveiled for the other side of the city.

The Bystrup-led team, which also includes London architecture studio Robin Snell & Partners, has been recommended as the winner of the Nine Elms to Pimlico Bridge competition, ahead of architects including Amanda Levete and Hopkins.

Featuring a slender structure and spiralling ramps at both ends, the proposal is described by the design team as a "minimal, seamless crossing" with single spire masts and an "elegant" winding deck.

You wait years for a new bridge across the Thames then three come along at once. Joining the controversial garden bridge and a plan for a crossing between Nine Elms and Pimlico, both of which have fierce opponents, comes a proposal unveiled today for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge between Rotherhithe and the Isle of Dogs in east London that hasn’t aroused a single objection – yet.

Heathrow Airport has released some new images of the proposed developments around the Central Terminal Area, the new third runway, and improvements to the M25. No mention of upgrading the M4 Spur junction from the M4 with free flowing links, which seems an oversight.

Key information from their press release:
  • Two main passenger terminals and transport hubs – Heathrow West (Terminals 5 and 6) and Heathrow East (an extended Terminal 2) – connected by an underground passenger transit and baggage system. Minimum connection times between terminals falling from 75 to 60 minutes.
  • Overhauled cargo facilities with improved and increased capacity. Our plans include climate-controlled cargo environments, improved transit facilities and dedicated freight access points including a potential cargo railhead.
  • Land set aside for commercial developments such as offices and hotels. It will provide more than enough space to replace commercial premises lost to the third runway
  • A three-runway Heathrow will provide up to 740,000 flights a year. That’s enough for Heathrow to compete on an equal footing with Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. It also provides sufficient hub-airport capacity until at least 2040
