Wandsworth Council and Lambeth Council are working with Allies and Morrison Urban Practitioners to develop a vision for the Victorian railway arches that span the area from Lambeth Road through Vauxhall, Nine Elms and onto Battersea. The project explores the potential for the area’s railway arches to support new community and commercial spaces and to establish a new walking route through both boroughs.

The project draws inspiration from the success of the Low Line concept in Southwark, which has connected diverse neighbourhoods through an established walking route, linking existing and new clusters of creativity, entertainment, and industry along its course. 

Allies and Morrison is working with movement consultants, Urban Flow, architects Ash Sakula, and socio-economic experts, Hatch, to shape a vision and strategy. The first stage of the project is focused on information gathering and understanding the existing context. 

As part of this first stage, there will be a walking audit and workshop for the local community on Thursday 16 June 2022.

The walk will start at Nine Elms Station at 1.30pm, and end with a workshop at Vauxhall Gardens Community Centre (5 Glasshouse Walk, SE11 5ES). This will involve a short presentation followed by discussion time to share your ideas on the key issues and opportunities related to the arches and the spaces around them. The event will finish at 4.30pm. 

If you would like to attend, please register your interest at lowline@lambeth.gov.uk 

Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
