Kidbrooke Station Square
Notting Hill Genesis and Transport for London are working together to deliver new homes, shops, open spaces and a vibrant new centre around Kidbrooke Station. We've worked with the local community and stakeholders to design attractive homes, new public spaces and commercial facilities. Workspace and retail will sit around a main square. We're also set to improve public transport, pedestrian and cycle routes.

About Kidbrooke Station Square, Greenwich
What's happened so far
After starting works at the beginning of 2020 all operations were brought to a haltat the end of March due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However since 8th June the site has been open again, albeit with new safety measures e.g. social distancing, one way systems and extra sanitiser points. We and our demolition contractor John F Hunt will continue to monitor all Government advice and information from the Construction Leadership Council.
What works are John F Hunt completing?
John F Hunt already has, or will be, completing the following tasks: installing hoarding around the site, removing vegetation, removing any contaminates, piling (forming the foundations), laying in-ground services, e.g. drainage, before finally pouring the ground floor slab for the buildings.
A Tree Protection Order will be enforced on site so that a number of trees (mainly on the northern boundary) will be retained. While there were more trees originally on the site, these were surveyed and found to be of low quality, and had to be removed for the construction of the development. New tree species will be planted within the scheme which will support an overall increase in biodiversity.
What stage are we at?
The contractor has erected perimeter hoarding, cleared vegetation, installed welfare units (and adapted these to cater for the new Covid-19 working practices), started to remove soil from site to form the new site levels and undertaken surveying for unexploded ordnance.
All environmental monitoring will continue through these processes to ensure that safe levels of noise and dust are not exceeded.
What’s happening next?
John F Hunt will continue to remove soil from site but the next big activity will be the start of the piling works. These will focus along the northern edge of the site against the A2 and the A2213. Sheets of metal will be installed to allow soil in front to be safely removed whilst still providing support to the ground behind. This task is expected to run from the end of July to October 2020.
