Project Thames Crossings

As a side-project to my squares project, I’m also keeping track of which Thames crossings I’ve “done”.

I’ve chopped things up into the following categories:

  • Road/bridges tunnels navigable by bike: I must’ve ridden across/ for them to “count”. Example: Waterloo Bridge.
  • Foot bridges and tunnels: I must’ve ridden or wheeled my bike across/through these for them to count. Example: Greenwich Foot Tunnel.
  • Railway bridges and tunnels: I’m counting these if I’ve been on the relevant train/tube/DLR line – the bike doesn’t have to have come with me. Example: Kingston Railway Bridge
  • Ferries: If the ferry allows bikes to come on board (and most do) then the bike must come for it to count. Example: Hammerton’s Ferry.
  • Roads inaccessible to bike: If the road has some custom arrangement for bikes (e.g. Dartford crossing), I must use that custom arrangement. Otherwise any type of crossing will count. Example: M3 Bridge at Chertsey.
  • Other. One in this case – Emirates “Air Line” Cable car. I did not take the bike when I went on this, but I believe you can.

Within each category, crossings are listed in most-downstream order first. Links in the first column lead to a Wikipedia page or similar resource. Links in the third column lead to a Strava activity where I “ticked” the crossing.
