East Wick & Sweetwater

22 May 2018

 

In March 2015, the Mayor of London and the London Legacy Development Corporation announced that Places for People and Balfour Beatty Investments had been appointed to bring forward plans for two new neighbourhoods; East Wick and Sweetwater. The neighbourhoods will contribute to the legacy transformation of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park providing a new, diverse and vibrant part of East London.

Forming a connection between the already established communities of Hackney Wick and Fish Island; East Wick & Sweetwater will accommodate a large number of homes, schools and commercial spaces.

 

 

 

The infrastructure works required to facilitate the new neighbourhoods are underway. These include two new bridge crossings, the new North-South highway, diversion of existing utilities and a new utility infrastructure to supply the proposed development. Bridge H14 comprises the conversion of the Monier Road pedestrian bridge into an all modes bridge. Bridge H16 is a new pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting Sweetwater to Fish Island.

Stace are appointed as the NEC Project Manager, Cost Consultant and Principal Designer for the infrastructure works which began in December 2017, due to complete in June 2019.
