It appears not for Thomson Habitats! We are delighted to announce that we were selected by Hydrock to carry out vegetation and site clearance to facilitate the enabling works at Camley Street Natural Park near Kings Cross Station in London.
Our works were to enable the construction of the pedestrian footbridge, which is the first new bridge over the Regent’s Canal in King’s Cross for more than a century!
Dubbed “Bridge Number Three” the bridge will span 38 metres, and will take pedestrians from Camley Street into the new development at the Triplet Gasholder park, and is part of the wider redevelopment of the railway land around Kings Cross.
We also installed tree protection fencing and root protection systems in accordance with BS 5837:2012 to protect the retained trees on site.
Thomson Habitats Project Manager, Marie Sanchez, says,
“We’re really excited to be working on this large development in London. Our enabling works package will help to facilitate the wider development works around Kings Cross and will help to unlock the area for local residents and other stakeholders. We’re looking forward to using our expertience to help get the works done on programme, and with as little disturbance as possible to the local residents.”
Camley Street Natural Park was created from an old coal yard in 1984, and is an urban nature reserve, popular with people seeking respite from the buzz of the city around them, as well as being a hub for London Wildlife Trust volunteers.
