The high profile competition attracted 74 entries from 16 countries, which have now been reduced to the shortlist of just 4.

Founder Erik Bystrup, who is also behind the UK’s new pylon design, said:

“From the outset we wanted to design an elegant bridge that provided simple and uninhibited access for all, with minimal impact landings on each bank.

We are very excited that this will be the first shared pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Thames, adding to the rich history of London’s river crossings.”
