TfL look to public to help design new cycle network across London

via taxi-point
Transport for London are asking for public input, as they look to bring in new cycle routes across London. Four new routes that are being developed by TfL in conjunction with the London boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Camden, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets. It is anticipated that a full public consultation will take place later this year. In 2017 TfL published the Strategic Cycling Analysis which set out proposals for 25 new cycle routes across London. In 2018 the Mayor announced that design work would begin on a number of these routes. Among those which have been proposed is a cycle route running between Camden and Tottenham Hale. This will be approximately 12km, and would connect the town centres of Tottenham Hale, Seven Sisters and the Nag's Head, with the route using both main roads and quieter back streets. Other proposed routes would run between Lea Bridge and Dalston, taking in a 3km route which will link the cycle route between the City and Tottenham at Dalston. The proposed route will see the Lea Bridge Road, Downs Park Road and Sandringham Road all become part of the cycle route network. Hackney and Isle of Dogs will also become part of the cycle route network. A 7.5k route would run through Westferry, Mile End and Victoria Park, linking the cycle routes between Stratford and Aldgate as well as Barking and Tower Hill. This route will also interlink with the proposed Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf Crossing. Ilford and Barking Riverside is also part of the new cycle route network proposals, taking in a 7km route, linking Ilford to Barking Riverside via Barking town centre .Transport for London have asked for ideas, comments and suggestions to help them develop their designs. A public engagement period will be running until 31March 2019, before a public consultation later this year.
