Dixon Jones in partnership with Gross Max are 14 months into the 3 year transformation of Olympic Way – the main approach to the national stadium from Wembley Park station (Metropolitan and Jubilee lines), as well as designing the public realm work for a new piazzetta next to the Brent Civic Centre. The first phase of four is on site, involving the transformation of the central portion of Olympic Way. Dramatic infrastructure works have been installed, striking 13m high lighting columns have been erected and large banners are being deployed. The trees – many different species forming an ‘Avenue of Champions will be planted in February.
A planning application for the replacement of the ‘Pedway’ ramps with a grand staircase – in preparation for the European Championships in 2020- is to be submitted in January
