The work is funded by the Council with a contribution from Transport for London.

These improvements have been de signed to create an attractive space and to make it easier for the large number of people who use the area to move about more freely.

Works include:

  • Removing the low wall outside the hospital and reconstructing the layby to provide more space for pedestrians
  • Removing the excessive guard railing and metal benches
  • Replacing the large raised planters and trees with new trees more in keeping with the environment
  • Repaving the area in natural York stone to provide a smooth, attractive and level surface which will be easiser for people in wheelchairs, with buggies or with restricted mobility
  • Improving the 2 pelican crossings near the hospital

346-works2.jpgWorks began on Wednesday 24 February and are due to be completed by mid-July.

Any enquiries about the project should be directed to Andy Pang at the Council on 020 7341 5783.
