Transport for London has launched four new Cycleways in Enfield and Waltham Forest that have further expanded the network.
The new or extended routes have been delivered alongside TfL’s and the boroughs’ existing programme to build new walking and cycling infrastructure, and has added six miles to London’s network of safe cycle routes.
More than 40% of people in Waltham Forest are within a quarter of a mile of a high-quality cycle route.
The new cycleways that further expand the cycleway network in London include:
Cycleway 23 – Lea Bridge to Woodford New Road
- Extension of existing route connecting Lea Bridge Road to Woodford New Road with links to C24 (Tottenham Hale to Whipps Cross), C26 (Chobham Manor to Blackhorse Road) and C27 (Acton to Walthamstow)
Cycleway 24 – Tottenham Hale to Whipps Cross
- Extension of route from Wood Street to Whipps Cross with connections to C26 (Chobham Manor to Blackhorse Road) and C23 (Lea Bridge to Whipps Cross)
Cycleway 26 – Chobham Manor to Blackhorse Road
- Connects to C23 (Lea Bridge to Whipps Cross), C24 (Tottenham Hale to Whipps Cross), and C27 (Acton to Walthamstow)
Cycleway 58 – Southgate to Palmers Green
- Connects to C20 (Enfield Town to Wood Green) and the wider Enfield network
Will Norman, London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said: “Well-connected and high-quality cycleways play a crucial role enabling more Londoners to cycle safely.
“We have already seen a significant boost in cycling in north and east London and the Mayor is committed to building on this progress even further. These new cycleways in outer London will make cycling safer and more accessible to more communities across the capital – helping to build a fairer, safer, greener London for everyone.”
