TfL plans Festival Pier improvements

Transport for London has commissioned a feasibility study into how commercial opportunities could fund infrastructure improvements to Festival Pier on the South Bank.

TfL plans Festival Pier improvements

News of the possible upgrade of Festival Pier – located close to Southbank Centre – comes as TfL published figures showing that passenger numbers on river buses and tours increased to a record-breaking 9.8 million in 2014.

TfL also confirmed its previous announcement that Bankside Pier will be extended by spring 2016.

• A television news report from 1991 on the partial collapse of Festival Pier has been published on YouTube this week by the owners of the Thames News archive.
