Valley Gardens

Project Centre, has been appointed by Brighton & Hove City Council to lead on the technical design of Brighton’s Valley Gardens.

The main objective is to realise Valley Gardens as a space that people can enjoy, as opposed to just being an area to travel through. Design work is scheduled to start this month.

Valley Gardens, made up of a series of green spaces running down to Brighton’s heavily visited seafront, is also home to many of Brighton’s most attractive and important buildings, including the Royal Pavilion, and St Peter’s Church.

Proposed designs will see general traffic restricted to the eastern side of the central junction, while the western side will be used by buses and taxis. There would also be an improved network of cycle lanes and pedestrian routes.

The design includes significant tree planting, increased green space, revitalizing the gardens and improving the flow of pedestrians and cyclists. The overall objective is to remove a perceived barrier between the east and west of the city.

The appointment includes initial technical design of the highways, but may also include site supervision and project management of contractors on-site. Works are scheduled to complete in March 2018.

The project will run predominantly from Project Centre’s Brighton office. Kevin Donnelly, Project Centre’s Regional Director who will oversee the project, said: “We are really looking forward to getting started on this project to help residents, workers, visitors to Brighton enjoy the Valley Gardens space as well as to improve the flow of movement of cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.”

Project Centre adds Forest Road to its mini-Holland project portfolio

Waltham Forest was one of three successful London Boroughs to receive up to £30 million mini-Holland funding and deliver a step change in cycle infrastructure over 3 years.
Waltham Forest has been leading the way in ensuring its own programme of integrated schemes is on target to radically change neighbourhoods by placing cycling at the heart of its schemes -this cycling transformation and the breadth of regeneration across the borough will provide a huge catalyst for long-term growth in the borough.

Project Centre has again been appointed to deliver the preliminary design, public consultation support and detailed design for the latest scheme in the programme, Forest Road.
Forest Road will form the northern boundary of the Walthamstow mini-Holland area between the borough boundary with Haringey in the west and Wood Street to the east, and become an exemplary cycle route in its own right. Objectives for the scheme include:

• Segregated/semi segregated or highly traffic calmed route along the length of Forest Road between Waterworks Corner and the western borough boundary.
• Provide the northern part of the frame of cycle routes for the mini-Holland area
• Provide new public spaces in the form of pocket parks along the route and a sustainable gateway to the Walthamstow Wetlands development.

Project Centre is already developing and delivering designs for three other schemes which include; Lea Bridge Road, Church Road and Blackhorse Village and this further success is a huge testimony to the work and progress we are already providing the Council in helping to deliver the mini-Holland programme to TfL timescales and budget.
