Nine Elms Bridge

The Nine Elms - Pimlico Bridge: The Clip
The new link between historic Pimlico and the cutting-edge development at Nine Elms should express the city’s ambitions for those neighbourhoods and for London as a whole.

On the south side, a gateway that will define a modern development; on the north side, a seamless entrance to classic Pimlico and Victoria beyond. Over the river, two asymmetrical arches gracefully soar over a continuous loop a striking geometry that refers to London’s other bridges while reproducing none of them.

Dedicated cycling lanes mean that The Clip will become a vital artery for commuters. The separate pedestrian paths and public realm frame new perspectives on the city making it a place to linger, meet friends and enjoy the view. The vertical arches and the horizontal loop frame vistas east and west towards the London Eye and the revitalised Battersea Power Station. Separation of the walkways results in a different viewing experience, through the loop at passing boats and out towards the city.
