  • At least two Emergency Thames Bridges were erected as a precaution against enemy action during World War II. The first of these bridges was built from Victoria Embankment to County Hall and was constructed in 1942 [5] before being demolished in 1948.[6] The second such bridge was constructed at Millbank outside the Tate Britain in 1942 [7] before also being dismantled in 1948.[8]
