The London Borough of Merton is home to the Willow Lane Industrial Estate, where many residents of the area are employed. To improve traffic conditions in the area and encourage pedestrian/cyclist commuting to work, Groundwork Merton proposed the construction of a footbridge over the River Wandle into the estate. We determined the prospective use and analysed its possible locations. We utilized the data collection techniques of surveys and interviews to make recommendations regarding the project's future.
