This award winning project is an exemplar scheme for Highways England and has been featured on the BBC’s Countryfile. It connects areas of historic parkland via land bridge green corridor across the busy A21 bypass.

The National Trust’s Scotney Castle estate in Kent commissioned the land bridge project to connect the historic approach from the gatehouse to the house and gardens.

The densely planted green bridge spans approximately forty metres across the new dual carriageway and was designed to ensure that the existing woodland along the ridge within the Area of Outstanding Beauty was not interrupted by the construction of the new road. The design reflects the historic parkland and maintains the picturesque landscape approaching the house, along with the quality of visitors’ experience.

Due to the importance of habitat conservation, planting was introduced to connect the fragmented habitat areas of the local dormice population.
