Over the last few years we’ve seen no end of London projects that try and rival the massive popularity of the High Line in New York City. From the Peckham Coal Line to the Limehouse Curve they’ve all looked promising, but come to nothing so far. Now there’s a new proposal – one that could be the most exciting London’s-answer-to-the-High-Line yet.
The Camden Highline is a plan to convert a stretch of disused railway line between Camden Town and King’s Cross into an elevated park. Running for about 800 metres above some of Camden’s busiest roads, it’d be a new link for pedestrians and cyclists as well as a public green space. The project is still at an early stage, but you can pledge your support online – and watch this space for updates. It’s not quite downtown Manhattan, but NW1 is certainly getting ideas above its station.
