Trees planted at Lambeth Bridge roundabout

Some of the largest trees ever planted in central London have been installed at the Lambeth Bridge roundabout.

Seven 14 metre high Dawn Redwood trees are being planted as part of the Lambeth-wide Gateway programme.

The gateway has been specially designed to allow cycling access to Lambeth Bridge from Lambeth Palace Road.

The project is being supported by Transport for London, which has provided half of the funding.

A road closure was necessary during the planting of the the trees, which were grown in Holland.

Cllr Paul McGlone, Lambeth's executive member for the environment, said: "It is wonderful to have these remarkable trees coming to Lambeth Bridge".
