What is the expected 'Benefit Cost Ratio' (BCR) for TfL's proposed investment in the Garden Bridge? How would this compare to the BCR for investment in the proposed Brunel Bridge for walking and cycling between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf?

Answer for Garden Bridge

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Benefit to Cost ratio (BCR) of the Garden Bridge is 5.8 to 1.

TfL does not have an up to date BCR for the proposed Brunel Bridge between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf. My Deputy Mayor for Transport and TfL officers have met with Sustrans to assist them in the development of the scheme. Subject to demand and funding this work will lead to the development of a business case.
