The regeneration of Wembley ahead of the reopening of the national stadium continues apace, with upgrading of access to the industrial park next door. Last weekend engineers lifted in a new 60m long pedestrian footbridge to span the Chiltern Lines railway, allowing the existing road bridge to be widened from two lanes of traffic to three. The work is part of the Estate Access Corridor scheme, which will provide relief to the eastern sector of the industrial estate by the creation of a new link road. It also involves the upgrade of Great Central Way which passes through the estate to three lanes. Client is the London Borough of Brent, main contractor is Mowlem, and designer is Scott Wilson.
The scheme is due to open in October.
