London is getting a new bridge and some of the designs are amazing

One looks like a rocket ship.

THE LONDON BOROUGH of Wandsworth wants to build a bridge going across the Thames.

The bridge will link the Nine Elms area on the south to Pimlico on the north.

The competition brief says that it has “the potential to become one of the most expressive and visible landmarks in London” and will link the urban north shore with an almost entirely newly built south side.

The organisers want a bridge that is “inspiring, elegant and functional in its design and perfect in its execution”. It has a budget of around £40 million.

To actually build the bridge, the borough is holding an open design competition and some of the entries are spectacular:
