Details

Plans for a new double-decker bridge at Charing Cross, designed by Sir Owen Williams and at the time recently approved by a royal commission. The bridge was intended to replace the Hungerford Bridge, dating from the 19th century. The idea was that traffic could pass on the top-deck while trains could cross the Thames on the level below. The plan was ultimately scrapped in 1931.
