Question about pedestrian and cycle-bridge across the River Thames
Radnor Bridge representative, Mark Wing, attended the Leader’s Question Time event last week held at the Stoop. He took the opportunity to ensure Radnor Bridge had not been forgotten and to ask that a formal discussion about it be included within the Village Planning documents and discussions.
The following is transcribed from a recording of the question Mark put to the panel and the ensuing discussion /responses that followed.
Mark was pleased to have taken the time out to attend this event. He is also grateful to Lord True for his open and honest reply to Mark’s request. And also to Pamela Fleming, for her subsequent promise to ensure a pedestrian and cycle bridge across the River Thames is included as an “aspirational project” within the Village plans.

Mark Wing: “I’ve been actively campaigning since 2010, when we had the Barefoot Consultation, for a pedestrian and cycle-bridge across the River Thames, connecting Twickenham and Ham. I’ve engaged with a number of individuals on the council but not really taken too formal an approach with it thus far. I’ve been working on some ideas with an architect (Richard Woolf) who’s based in Richmond and lives in Ham. (This evening) I just wanted to register that this is something we are very keen to see happen. Believing it provides a wonderful, truly fantastic, legacy for the generations to come.
