KENT 41
The Ebbsfleet
Landmark Project
The three key players in the Ebbsfleet Valley project, Land
Securities, Eurostar and London and Continental Railways,
wanted to create a visible testament that would symbolise the rich
past and sparkling future of Kent. Anthony Gormley’s Angel of the
North demonstrated what public sculpture on a heroic scale can
do, and the partners decided to invest £2m in a similarly
inspirational piece of work.
In May 2007, the shortlist of the proposals from some of Europe’s top
sculptors was announced. When completed, the successful artist’s
sculpture will stand in the southeast corner of Ebbsfleet Valley, in the
Springhead Park area just off the A2. It will be a startling and © Mark Wallinger, 2008
impressive sight that greets rail travellers as they emerge from the
tunnel under the A2 on their way to Ebbsfleet International Station.
The decision on the winning proposal will be made in October 2008,
but whichever one wins, it is fair to say the end product will be on a
hitherto unprecedented scale. It will tower over the Angel of the
North, reaching at least the height of Nelson’s Column.
