Light up Redbridge

The Ilford Garden Junction scheme with £1 million from the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund and further funding from the Mayor and TfL’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme will create a green gateway between Redbridge and Newham to revamp the junction under the A406 fly-over. The project aims to vastly improve the area, with extensive landscaping, lighting and new walking and cycling opportunities.  The transformed junction will provide a safe and accessible route to Ilford Town Centre, the upgraded Crossrail station, bus services and the nearby high quality green open space alongside the River Roding for residents and businesses.


As well as being an installation and borough gateway, lighting plays an essential role in making the junction a more inviting place for pedestrians during the evening and reducing night time severance that can result from perceived fear of crime.

To improve the night-time feel of the junction and visibility under the structures, Redbridge have;

  • Introduced lighting to soften the structures and enhance their features through an array of coloured lights.
  • Improved existing street lighting in the junction area by installing energy-efficient lighting to improve safety and deter anti-social behaviour

Whilst Kenson had some involvement in this project, the lighting was completed by Milestone Infrastructure.
