Roger Hawkins (HawkinsBrown), Sunand Prasad (Penoyre & Prasad) and Peter Murray (New London Architecture) have all been appointed by the Mayor of London to oversee the implementation of £100 million worth of cycling infrastructure in the city.
The scheme will focus on three London Boroughs: Kingston, Enfield and Waltham Forest, each of which were awarded “mini-Holland” status – a reference to the cycling haven of the Netherlands which these areas of London will be modelled on. Each borough will nominate their own principal designers, but the three appointed architects, who all sit on the Mayor’s design advisory panel, will be acting as consultant and client for a different borough.
Peter Murray has been appointed to Kingston where he will work on the construction of a new cycling hub, the transformation of the plaza at Kingston Station and the creation of a riverside cycling boardwalk.
Enfield, overseen by Sunand Prasad, will be delivering three cycle hubs across the borough, as well as a network of cycling superhighways and new greenway routes.
Roger Hawkins will oversee the introduction of a semi-segregated superhighway along Waltham Forest’s Lea Bridge Road, as well as the implementation of measures to improve cycling in residential neighbourhoods.
