Somers Town Bridge gets planning consent
The proposed new bridge, given the green light by Camden Council in March, will span the Regent’s Canal, connecting King’s Cross by the Western Coal Drops, to Camley Street and the Camley Street Natural Park beyond.
Somers Town Bridge is designed by Moxon Architects, with input from the London Wildlife Trust on the planting element of the proposals, within the Park, which they run. Moxon has also worked with Townshend Landscape Architects to ensure the bridge’s successful integration with Gasholder Park and the Wharf Road Viaduct.
The bridge will provide a pedestrian and cycle route across the canal, and will be open between 6am and 9pm, year-round. It is expected to be open in Spring 2017.
