Transformed South Woodford bridge design revealed
This will be the scene that greets pedestrians as they stroll across a bridge in South Woodford when improvements are complete.
The mock up picture shows three tree sculptures which will provide extra lighting in the area around the A406 bridge in High Road, South Woodford.
The �250,000 project will also include revamped paving and four benches which will display photographs, artwork and historical quotes.
A larger bench will be positioned outside nearby South Woodford Library.
The designs, put forward by artists Tim Ward and Lucien Simon, were the most popular during a public consultation which took place in November last year.

In the next two months Redbridge Council will work with schools in the area to come up with designs for leaves on the tree sculptures and photography clubs will be asked to suggest images inspired by the environment to be used on the benches.
A council spokesman said: “The paved area on the bridge which crosses the A406 is a busy pedestrian route and it is hoped the improvements will create a more inviting area to walk, relax or meet people.
