Millwall Park Viaduct

Millwall Park Viaduct

Looking very forlorn in Millwall Park is the Millwall Park Viaduct which is situated in Tower Hamlets. The question is what to do with the viaduct and how to make it work for the locals and others.

One scheme which has been put forward is to have twenty allotments on the viaduct, but it does not lend itself to allotments. Another is to have planters on it, but this would require remedial work to meet health and safety requirements for their upkeep.

Another idea which has been put forward is to create a Bee School to give Londoners the opportunity to learn about bees in a more practical way, but critics have stated there would not be enough flora for the bees to pollinate. However, if a meadow was installed across the viaduct there would be.

What is your view? Would you like a walk across the viaduct and learn about bees?
