The Transport for London (TfL) funded Mini Holland scheme “Lea Bridge Road Cycle Route” recently won the Healthy Streets award for “Proposal of the Year” at the Landor first Healthy Streets Conference in September.
Lea Bridge Road is being modernised with over £15 million of investment to transform this key road into an attractive destination for all, with new public spaces and a world class cycling and walking route. It is one of three east-west routes linking residents and visitors to central London, running from Whipps Cross Roundabout in the east to the borough of Hackney in the west. The route is heavily used with up to 30,000 vehicles and 1,500 cyclists daily.
The 2.5 mile long route is being transformed, in partnership with Project Centre, in line with TfL’s ‘Healthy Streets’ approach. The programme includes upgrading junctions, bridges and footways, creating attractive public spaces with more trees, offering safer routes to school and healthier travel options, thereby making the area a more enjoyable place and a destination that people will want to visit.
