PPR have been working on plans to improve Portland Road Railway Bridge for some time and secured funding to make it a more pleasant experience for pedestrians and the local community.
Michael Grubb Studios, creative lighting designers, have been appointed to produce the design and representatives from PPR’s Steering Group and Croydon Council have been part of the working group tasked with overseeing the project.
We would like to invite you to see the potential designs at a public consultation on Wednesday 1 May. This will be a drop-in session from 5 to 8 PM at Caribbean Dreads Salon, 2A Portland Road (on the corner of Clifford Road), close to the bridge itself. Michael Grubb Studios and Michelle Normanly, Croydon Council’s Regeneration Manager for South Norwood will be in attendance to update the community on the planned installation.
If you are interested in hearing more about this exciting project for South Norwood please save the date & ask your friends and family to come along too.
Although there is a wonderful mosaic under the bridge, which will stay in place, this bridge has been unwelcoming and unloved for too long. We look forward to a brighter, welcoming bridge.
