The project, which will be delivered in partnership with Transport for London and Network Rail, will be the first of a series of green infrastructure interventions delivered by Vauxhall One over the next 5 years.
The living wall will be the first installation of its kind on Network Rail’s infrastructure in London, comprising 25m2 of biodiversity enhancing plants. The wall will help to nurture local wildlife, improve air quality in the neighbourhood and bring vibrancy to the centre of Vauxhall.
The project is funded by Vauxhall One, the Business Improvement District (BID) for Vauxhall, as part of its commitment to greening. The wall on South Lambeth Place will be the second green wall installed in Vauxhall by the BID, with the first constructed on the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in 2014. Other greening projects delivered by Vauxhall One include a 160m Clean Air Garden on Albert Embankment, 250 hanging baskets and two phases of greening on Vauxhall Walk.
