The Camden Highline, a project to open up a path along a railway linking Camden to Kings Cross has opened a competition for a design studio to carry out the work.

Occupying 1.1km of disused railway viaduct that runs alongside the mainline tracks, they are working on opening up what would be a 15-minute elevated walk from Camden Gardens to a location just to the north of the redeveloped land behind King’s Cross station.
The chosen design team will be tasked with making a piece of vacant infrastructure accessible to the public. Apart from making the railway viaducts safe and pleasant to walk long, there are the end point buildings that will get people from street to the high walk.
It’s expected that when the Camden Highline opens, it could attract 1.3 million new visitors annually.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
