A project to improve one of Shepherds Bush’s busiest roads has been given a prestigious accolade at the Hammersmith Society’s annual environment awards. The railings on Goldhawk Road have been removed - ending the "Berlin Wall" dividing Hammersmith and Shepherd's Bush.
Councillor Nick Botterill accepted the ‘Nancye Goulden award for a smaller scheme’, for improvements to Goldhawk Road, on behalf of the council and the London Community Foundation. Local resident and actress Vanessa Redgrave presented the awards.
The award, named in memory of a founding member of the society, is given to a project that makes a significant contribution to the borough’s environment.
