The Redevelopment Of Victoria

Mark met with the Managing Director of LandSecurities, Britain’s biggest property developer, this morning to discuss the company’s plans for the area around Victoria Station. The area has long been in need of a complete overhaul, particularly with the chaos that ensues in rush hour. The current road layout and station concourse are failing to cope with the sheer number of transport users who rely on the area and the potential to improve Victoria for residents, office workers and visitors has been overlooked for some time. The redevelopment of the station and the vicinity looks set to include new shops, a better road layout, more residential accommodation and new office space. Mark has also met local campaigners who have formed the Victoria Interchange Group which works to ensure that the concerns and ideas of Victoria’s significant residential population are taken into account.
