ALL ABOARD AT NEW COVENT GARDEN MARKET
It's a busy time on site at New Covent Garden Market since the next Phase of redevelopment started in January this year, with lots of preparatory works underway to prepare for the next stage of the transformation of the Fruit & Vegetable Market.
A significant element of recent work has included drilling between two of the new Northern Line extension lines, as well as excavation of an old Victorian train shed that unearthed historical railway tracks under the Market site.
In addition, enabling works for the area at the eastern apex of the site, the tip of the triangle just beyond the Food Exchange, started on 10 May, and includes:
- Construction of a new footpath route from Pascal Street to the new pedestrian link through Arch 42
- Construction of a new access road from the viaduct (accessed via Wandsworth Road) through the apex site and into the market
- Infrastructure to support new incoming supplies to the apex Site
- Diversion of existing services within the apex site
