The team behind plans to turn a 1.2km derelict railway line into a garden walkway are crowdfunding for building costs after a study gave it the thumbs up.
The Camden Highline team want to raise enough to build the line – linking Camden Market to Granary Square in King’s Cross – six months after they raised more than £40,000 to carry out a study with Network Rail to find out if the idea had a future.
Holborn and St Pancras MP Keir Starmer, one of the project’s supporters, said: “Regenrating this disused, industrial thoroughfare will bring communities closer together. This is a fantastic vision and I look forward to seeing it become a reality.”
Camden Highline’s Simon Pitkeathley said the first crowdfunder showed the capital’s “dynamic spirit” in making something happen.
“It is in that same spirit that we’re starting to fundraise for construction costs,” he said.
