A green proposal for the Toronto Gardiner Expressway from the Quadrangle Architects has been unveiled through its Green Ribbon project. The proposal is a seven kilometer green space placed over an elevated section and serve as the roof structure of the expressway. The green ribbon will also work serve the pedestrian and cyclists to keep them safe from vehicles. Pedestrians and cyclists can proceed to the green ribbon via the provided access at major intersections through ramps and stairways.
The green ribbon has also been envisioned to have generated its own power through wind turbines and photovoltaic panels. The fruition of this project will definitely bring safety to the people of Toronto and the environment.
