Sunday 27th March - Brixton Popes Road footbridge is coming down

The last standing reminder of the Pope’s Road car park is set to disappear, with the removal of the concrete link bridge coming down this Sunday.

Brixton Pope's Road car park - nearly gone!

work to remove the now-isolated bridge that connected the car park to the Brixton Rec will involve the closure of nearby roads – find out more on Lambeth Council’s website:

Expert structural engineers, Lambert Smith Hampton, advised in 2010 that the Pope’s Road multi-storey car park in Brixton be demolished because it was unsafe and beyond repair. This followed a number of tests including a panel abseil survey of the structure. DDS Demolition commenced works in December 2010 and it is anticipated that the car park will be fully demolished by the end of March 2011.
