Churchill Labour Councillors Jason Williams and Shamim Talukder have criticised Wandsworth Council for pushing forward it’s controversial plans for a pedestrian and cycle bridge from Nine Elms to Pimlico.
Cllr Williams said “we are amazed that Wandsworth are continuing with their plans despite widespread opposition and the Mayor’s commitment that the bridge can only go ahead with support on both sides of the river. We will continue to stand up for our community and continue to fight against this scheme at any landing site in Pimlico.”
