Road to Mayflower - Projects

Building The Mayflower Forest

As the flagship of the Road to Mayflower project, we’re delivering a new landscape design to revitalise Marsh Mills as a green gateway that transforms the visitors’ arrival experience as well as delivering significant environmental benefits.

Over 1000 silver birch trees have been planted to form the Forest and an artistic dry riverbed has been created using local stone, as a reference to the American landscape that the Pilgrims discovered. The Native Americans used birch trees to make their canoes and shelters and the tree is indigenous to both the UK and North America.

Projects for Road to Mayflower

Illuminating the Plymouth Slope

The iconic Ski Slope was illuminated for the first time at our The Road to Mayflower launch event. Consequently, we are planning to illuminate the ski slope for key commemorative periods throughout 2019 and 2020.

Art Panels

Embankment Road will be bursting into colour with the installation of a series of vibrant art panels. We aim to connect the road to the city’s rich heritage by engaging with the young people of Plymouth to create stunning art, which will provide a warm welcome to visitors. We’d like to thank GWR and Network Rail for their support of the Embankment Road panels.

Bridge Art

The flowers decorating Gdynia Bridge are well-known throughout the city but have faded over the years. The Road to Mayflower team is looking at the refurbishment of Gdynia Bridge and refreshing the flowers. As Plymouth is twinned with Gdynia in Poland, it’s a great way to celebrate the two communities living together in the city and the team has been working with the local Saturday Polish School to help with the transformation.

The Road to Mayflower


2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower from Plymouth UK to Plymouth, Massachusetts.

How the construction industry is going to mark Mayflower 400

To commemorate, Plymouth’s construction industry, working through the Building Plymouth partnership, has officially launched their ‘Adopt a Street’ project – The Road to Mayflower.

Download our Sponsorship and Commercial Opportunities brochure to find out more on how you can get involved.

Road to Mayflower – the project

The hard-working volunteers of the Road to Mayflower project are transforming the appearance of Embankment Road focusing on arrival and departure at Marsh Mills Roundabout, including Gdynia Way and through to Cattedown Roundabout. In addition, we hope to encourage the local community to use the new and improved user-friendly space more.

With some great plans in place, we hope that this will help to positively impact on people’s perception of our city, leave a lasting legacy, inject civic pride amongst our residents and young people, and enhance the image of construction.
