Green space planned to flank busy East End carriageway

Green oasis comes step closer with feasibility study

A new green oasis in a run-down part of east London has come a step closer to realisation with a feasibility study. Multi-disciplinary architecture and design firm Broadway Malyan is looking at the site near the Aspen Way dual carriageway in Poplar. The new park will feature a pedestrian and cycle bridge, which will cross the busy Aspen Way. The park is envisaged as a new green space on either side of the crossing that will link areas to the north with the riverside. Broadway Malyan has also just led the launch of the Skelmersdale Share the Vision project, which is designed to give the centre of the Lancashire town a facelift. The project is being driven by West Lancashire District Council, national regeneration agency English Partnerships and the North West Regional Development Agency. Landscape architects are playing a major part in the planning, which will focus on civic and public open spaces and parkland. The public, organisations and companies will be consulted and once the process has been completed, Broadway Malyan will produce a masterplan during summer or autumn this year.
