Green bridge will restore split area

An area divided by the busy A3 Kingston bypass will benefit from a regeneration project including a "green bridge".

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.
