Building and connecting communities

The first phase of the development consists of 249 new homes, a new pedestrian bridge over the River Lee Navigation providing convenient access to Tottenham Hale Underground station and canal-side public realm for the residents and wider community.

The Hale Wharf scheme is being delivered by Waterside Places – a strategic joint venture between Canal & River Trust and Muse Developments, in partnership with the Mayor of London and London Borough of Haringey.

Lock 17 has been designated as one of the Mayor of London’s Housing Zones, meaning the site will make an important contribution to the Mayor’s and the Council’s aspiration for 2,000 new homes in Tottenham Hale.

Connecting communities together - Hale Wharf bridge

Our team was joined by Waterside Places and the mayor of Haringey, Councillor Adam Jogee, to celebrate the official opening of the Hale Wharf Bridge – a key piece of infrastructure installed over the River Lea Navigation.

The bridge, represents a vital part of the council’s Green Link from the Centre of Haringey, improving the overall quality of life for communities across the borough, by connecting people to open spaces and providing places to relax and play. The bridge will also be used to bring heating / hot water from nearby sites via the district heating system. 

Zak Carroll, Project Director, said: "This whole operation demonstrated how a team can really pull together under immense pressure. Everyone remained focused to ensure this critical element of the project was carried out safely and on time. Even though the lifts took just 4 days to complete on site, it took many months of workshopping with numerous stakeholders to ensure success."
