The Rotherhithe Bridge is an ambitious bascule bridge designed by reForm Architects and slated for construction in Central London. This bridge would cater to both pedestrians and cyclists and would give them a direct and easy way to cross the River Thames from Canary Wharf to Rotherhithe.

This bridge would function as the first dedicated pedestrian and cyclist bridge across the Thames, and would be the first opening bridge built there since the 19th century.

The Rotherhithe Bridge is a highly practical solution to London's transportation woes, in that it will allow people who get around on foot and on bicycle to avoid long detours and inconvenient routes. This would also reduce traffic on those routes and make for safer commuting for all.
