Commissioned by Transport for London (TfL), the Sutton Link project develops proposals for a new public transport route between the London Boroughs of Merton and Sutton. In partnership with Hawkins/Brown and Jonathan Cook Landscape Architects, We Made That are developing the Urban Design and Placemaking Strategy for the scheme which has already helped to identify three route options, currently open to public consultation via TfL.
Taking consultation feedback on board, the team will begin to develop a strategy for the public realm and landscape design for the preferred route, working closely with TfL, as well as transport engineers, environmental consultants and business planners.
Once complete, the Sutton Link will create a much-needed connection between Sutton and Merton town centres and beyond to Central London, encouraging people use more sustainable modes of transport. With reference to the Mayor’s Healthy Streets Initiative, the design team will develop proposals which radically transform busy traffic corridors into places where priority is shared across modes of transport and environmental considerations take the fore; creating a credible urban environment to support good growth.
