Walkway along disused track will connect area and open up views

Adams & Sutherland appointed to Peckhams High Line

Architect and landscape designer Adams & Sutherland has been appointed to create the feasibility for an elevated walkway along a disused rail track in South London.

The 900m Peckham Coal Line runs from Peckham Rye to Queens Road Peckham and will turn a disused coal sidings running alongside the railway into a public walkway and cycle path. Along its length it will pass through Victorian brick viaducts and a pocket nature reserve, as well as offering great views of the London skyline.

As part of the feasibility study, Adams & Sutherland will help develop the designs and test them in a series of community engagement and participation events between April and November 2016.

The Peckham Coal Line is an initiative that was put forward by local residents, backed by a local crowdfunding campaign. Additonal funding has come from the Mayor of London’s High Street Fund, Southwark Council, and Sustrans

Adams & Sutherland is also responsible for the Greenway walking/cycle route at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.

Adams & Sutherland said: ‘The Peckham Coal Line is an exciting project full of possibilities that will help benefit the local community. Not only does it aim to deliver a new linear park, the Coal Line is helping to bring the community together through engagement.’
