Yesterday the Ilford Town Centre Transformation (Phase 2) Visitor Centre opened. Presented by Jas Aphwal (Leader of Redbridge Council), Sam Tarry (Labour MP, Ilford South), Jonathan Yabsley (Contract Director, Kenson), William Raw (Contract Director, Metis) and Cyril Bekoe (Ilford BID Manager) the ITC Visitor centre is now open for members of the community for the duration of the Ilford Town Centre Phase 2 Transformation.
When starting the project Kenson found tramline tracks below the town centre. In the hope of preserving a small part of Ilford Towns Heritage, Kenson reconditioned these tracks and donated them to the history museum during the Visitor Centre opening presentation.
On the 1st of June Kenson started a multi-million pound project for major street improvements on behalf of the London Borough of Redbridge to transform Ilford Town Centre. Along with this 12-18 month transformation, Kenson and Redbridge council want to reassure and keep the general public informed with project plans and updates throughout the process, as such Kenson has erected a visitor centre to answer general public concerns and questions about this project.
