Steven Wong of PWLC Projects has been working with Lambeth Council, project managing a major transport and public realm scheme on and around Westminster Bridge Road.
The scope area of the scheme covers a vast area of Waterloo and will see some significant improvements to the public realm, pedestrian facilities, cycling infrastructure and three rail arches in proximity. The project budget of £3.5m is funded almost entirely of developer contributions in the surrounding area and will be delivered by summer 2017.
Steven has led the project from Project Initiation through to its current stage Detailed Design and construction. Aligning well with what PWLC aims to achieve, Lambeth has promoted co-design and input from communities where the local business improvement district, residents and other stakeholders have been instrumental in developing the scheme over the past 1.5 years. We are proud of this achievement and hope to engage with communities even more on developing light / artwork for the rail arches that will be projected onto the abutment walls of Carlisle Lane and Westminster Bridge Road rail arch.
This project is an important scheme for Lambeth. With Waterloo seeing a marked increase in private development sites such as Park Plaza Hotels, Leake Street, Urbanest as well as other Council schemes like the Lambeth Quietway, Transport for London’s Better Junctions programme, Westminster Bridge Road acts as a strategic link between these projects that will assist in future proofing accessibility for all road users.
