Bridge-IT

A reconfigured tube map shows how linear parks could link up transport hubs across London by following existing transport routes.

Four diagrams reveal how the Bridge-IT process would work.

Cross sections demonstrate how Bridge-IT uses green space to create connections over, under and alongside existing transport networks.

Bridge-IT

Walk or cycle through linear parks over, under and alongside existing transport networks

Highly commended

Bridge-IT aims to create a new green infrastructure network by opening up walking and cycling routes along established lines of movement. For example, Hampstead Heath could be connected to St Pancras along the rail network by creating a platform over the railway cutting until Camden and along disused sidings beyond this from the southern tip of Hampstead Heath.

The idea is to link communities with central London parks and transport hubs using previously inaccessible or degraded land, which itself would benefit from being remediated and made part of an improved green infrastructure network.

These extensive green infrastructure networks would contribute hundreds of hectares of parkland, amenity, biodiversity, developable land and value to the neighbourhoods radiating from Central London. People would then be able travel from central to suburban London along continuous linear parks that promote liveability and a healthy lifetsyle.
