Published: 13/07/2020If you've recently passed the rail viaducts that run through Bankside, you may have spotted some mounted blue 'Low Line' markers. The signage and wayfinding markers are used to navigate pedestrians along the Low-Line while celebrating their distinctive character and providing information about the area's heritage.
The Low Line is a new walking destination for London along the length of the mighty Victorian rail viaducts spanning Bankside, London Bridge and Bermondsey.
It connects diverse neighborhoods and communities in south London, linking existing and new hubs of creativity, entertainment, and industry along its course.
The Low Line also celebrates the heritage of the railway arches which have been a part of the area for over 150 years, shaping places of interest along the way and unlocking their potential.
The first new sections of the Low Line opened at Old Union Yard Arches and Flat Iron Square and complement established Low Line hubs located at Borough Market, Maltby Street Market, and Spa Terminus.
These openings have provided enhanced access, connectivity, and public spaces, as well as improved economic prosperity through the repurposing of underused or empty arches.
Dig out your walking boots as this exciting new project in Bankside is gathering pace.
