Leamouth footbridge links London City Island to Canning Town

August 6, 2014

London City Island took its first steps to realisation as the Leamouth footbridge was installed to link the island site to Canning Town.

Extending over the River Lea the new footbridge enables access to Canning Town Station. Without the bridge, there would be no direct access from the island other than a roundabout walk using busy traffic routes.

Ballymore’s vision will transform this disused brownfield site into a thriving new riverside community. In total 1,600 homes will be provided along with shops, restaurants and cafes.
