BDP unveils 'green bridge' plan for London

  • Comment
BDP has revealed these first images of plans for a 'green bridge' in Tolworth, south-west London.

The bridge will form a key part of a Tesco redevelopment on a 4ha brownfield site in the Royal Borough of Kingston.

It is hoped that the bridge will 'stitch back together' an area of London divided by the A3 bypass - linking the railway station and town centre with a 'vibrant mixed use development' comprising a 6,000m 2store, 835 residential units and 780m 2of retail space.

The bridge, landscaped on both sides, will 'give the impression of walking along a wide, paved public area rather than crossing a dual carriageway'.

The scheme has ambitions to be 'an exemplar sustainability project that will be a benchmark for future developments in the UK, Europe and the world'.

The proposal aims to surpass the GLA's 10 per cent renewable energy target, incorporating Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic panels and solar tubes.

Public consultation is due to take place this week; discussions with the local council, the GLA and CABE are understood to be ongoing.
