Plans for a regeneration project in west London will include a “green bridge” to reunite an area divided by the busy A3 Kingston bypass.
The plans, by international design practice BDP, are led by a strong sustainability agenda and will transform 3.8ha of brownfield site in the Royal Borough of Kingston into a “vibrant, mixed development suited to the 21st century”.
The plans include open spaces, landscaping and improved pedestrian walkways. BDP hopes the project will be a benchmark for future sustainability projects.
Peter Drummond, BDP chief executive, said: “This project is going to provide a superb example of sustainable engineering.”
The bridge, landscaped on both sides, will feature travellators, stairs and a lift to boost access to the town centre, Kingston railway station and residential areas.
It has been designed to give users the impression of walking along a wide, paved and landscaped public area, rather than a crossing for a busy dual carriageway.
