Are These Futuristic, Eco-Friendly Ferries Coming To London?

Are these futuristic, eco-friendly ferries coming to London?

The new ferries as they might look on the water

Since TfL has almost no plans for a pedestrian-cyclist bridge between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf, join MBNA Thames Clippers.

The ferry company, known for its commuter and tourist services on the Thames, has proposed an alternative eco-friendly way of crossing: a futuristic zero-emission ferry. (Some of the models indicate that it is a cross between a bond-villain's lifeboat and a person-sized terrarium.)

Something very Bond evil about this design. Bond villain meets terrarium

The plans, drawn up between Thames Clippers and Beckett Rankine Marine Consulting Engineers, envisage three of these state-of-the-art ferries, each capable of holding 150 people. At least 50% of the passengers were able to take bicycles on board.

Use the same route between the Canary Wharf Pier and the Doubletree Docklands Hotel in Rotherhithe, which is currently operated by one Not-so-environmentally friendly Thames Clipper, the new boats offer up to 2,250 parking spaces per hour per direction.

The new ships and pier moderation, says Thames Clippers, would cost £ 30 million.

The official line of TfL in this matter is that a bridge is still the preferred option, but due to spiraling cost projections, it has been "paused" (or, as some commentators say, deleted).

In fact, it is believed that a bridge could cost a whopping 600 million pounds, making a ferry journey of over 30 million pounds must be very attractive to TfL (especially considering that it was recently burned by hand with expensive bridges). The downside could be affiliation and how much Thames Clippers wants to set the agenda for marketing, advertising and the like.

The Londoner asked Thames Clippers who would pay the bill for the proposed ferries and how much water travel cost the public, but we still need to get a direct answer.

Through hooks or crooks, pedestrians and cyclists in East London desperately need this crossing.
