Reconnected Riverside Walk
At present the riverside walk between Putney and Hammersmith stops and is diverted around Craven Cottage via Stevenage Park. Our proposal will create a new pedestrian path along the river Thames that will be open and accessible to the general public and extends the riverside walk.
The new riverside walk will be cantilevered over the river to maintain existing flood capacity.
Stadium Access and Egress
At the last consultation, a lot of people asked us to introduce direct access into and out of the ground from the riverside walk and Bishops Park. This will help reduce the crowd congestion on match days, and fits with our aim of providing a continuous river walk.
Fender piles will be constructed to protect riverside walkway from river craft.
