Telford's design was classic and beautiful. I'd like to see either across the Thames - classical/21st century with no compromise on either.

I do like Hungerford Bridge but look what it's trying to hide.

Reminds me of the Calatrava bridge in Venice.

+1 support for one of those sleek single span arcs to appear nearer Bexley.

There's whole towns getting built in the Isle of dogs, Stratford and Barking and yet we're still stuck with only 2 road crossings east of New Cross!

Yeah you would have thought something like that would be the job of the Mayor but what happens, the one planned for the area gets canceled.

I prefer the old medieval london bridge though.


I also prefer this old-fashioned style, even though it's not modern, gives a fantastic touch to a bridge. Shame some things are not like before.

I think it should be reconstructed. Poland and Germany are rebuilding many of their gems, admittedly they were lost to war, but I still it could be done and a good way to gain more space in an already over crowded city.

it could be built but would you seriously think the administration in charge of London would do it? and for that matter how much an uproar in architectual community about how it's not modern enough? I would love a bit of lost history rebuilt but I have a feeling we will never see this happen.

People would complain it blocks the view down/up river.

Yes and you'd never be allowed to build arches that small.

Maybe a residential bridge of sorts with closely spaced piers would be a nice replacement for the first weir up-river around Teddington, or maybe a bit further down; it'd raise the river level in a manner similar to a weir.

A contemporary version of Telfords London Bridge, not the same of course but in spirit/form, making extensive use of composite materials to achieve Telfords 'intent' it would be a very graceful and appropriate addition. Only problem is where to put it? Replace Ldn Br - too disruptive and it'll be there for a while yet; downstream - blocks navigation unless it's a moving bridge - possible but that constrains the design somewhat - unless it's a really big one, aka the East Ldn river crossing ...

It wouldn't have to be an exact reconstruction...

But its not worth thinking about, it'll never happen. Oh well.


London Bridge should be a definitive bridge though. A modern, living bridge would be a good place to start.

I saw this on the Paris forums.

What about something like this?
