Central Scotland Green Network | North Lanarkshire 2013 At almost 20sq km, the Seven Lochs Wetland Park is Scotland’s largest urban nature park and a major new destination for outdoor recreation. Developed for the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) and Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership (GCVGNP) the three proposed green bridges within the Seven Lochs Wetland Park will allow the connection of wetland and woodland habitat as well as the communities that are divided by the M73. The existing crossings over and under this highway were the starting point for the proposal. As perfectly serviceable structures in their own right, the crossings would be retained and augmented or adapted, rather than replaced. Each of the three design routes is characterised by a low-key materiality, by and large comprising a simple path, alternating between compacted gravel and timber boardwalk. Along the way, animals and nature are invited onto the bridges in different ways: for example jetties and bird hides on one, provisions for equestrians on another, and allotments for growing fruits or vegetables at either end of the third.
