TfL is undertaking a number of assessments of the viability of a bridge, or alternative form of crossing, between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf. This includes forecasting demand through modelling and considering other benefits against the estimated costs for the scheme options. Environmental impacts are also being considered and engagement has been taking place with the local community to establish views on the proposed crossing. 

In addition, TfL has been engaging with suppliers to determine market appetite for delivery a scheme of this nature. All relevant assessments will be reported in the scheme's Business Case, which will be published in due course.
