Award-winning developer Dandara Ltd is proud to announce construction has begun on the brand new pedestrian bridge that will form a spectacular addition to Image, Hemel Hempsteads iconic new development.

The modern-design bridge named in memory of Alfie Morland, features an innovative design with a single span cable structure that will become an impressive landmark for the area. The bridge will lead across the Leighton Buzzard road with a span of 39 metres and a memorial plaque will be positioned at the centre of the bridge in honour of Alfie.

Michelle Harris, Sales Director for Dandara Ltd comments: We have now started the construction on this fantastic addition to Image which will further enhance the developments already impressive visual impact. The foot-bridge will be a great addition to the local area and will make it much safe for residents and locals to cross over the roads. With construction now started the bridge will be finished and ready for use in September.

Alfie Morland passed away following a terminal illness in 2007 and the decision to name the bridge was taken by Brett Leahy a friend of the Morland family and Planning Adviser for the local council for the Image development.

Alfies father, Rob Morland, commented: To have a bridge named after Alfie, is something special to us and obviously not many people have the honour of this, and we would like to express our thanks to Brett Leahy and Dandara for giving us something else to remember him.

Since his death we set up an umbrella fund under the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust and have to date raised over 65,000 to fund a research project into the type of tumour that Alfie died from.

Dandara is currently transforming the historic former Kodak Tower, into a selection of 254 one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses and will also feature landscaped gardens and a range of shops and office accommodation.
