Placemaking I

Placemaking I

Our vision for this station and its surrounding area, at its core, strives for an improved public realm. We propose extending the public square by widening the existing bridge, creating a ‘shared space’ – pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles will occupy the same surface, increasing awareness and responsibility of all parties. This will create retail opportunities along either side of the street and over the bridge.

Providing an additional entrance to the station, with step free access, will improve connectability to the new crossrail station.
