The procurement process for the TGB is being progressed to enable the timely issue of invitations to tender as soon as a Government decision is made on the scheme. The Design Panel will support TfL in achieving this goal by advising on design matters to ensure delivery of a high quality bridge and surrounding public space. The existence and membership of the panel was discussed at the Public Inquiry.
