A transport network that is fit for the future
Walthamstow is a dynamic town centre, a vibrant area boasting a diverse community, with excellent shopping and public transport links. In recent years, Walthamstow has gone from strength to strength, with a number of new independent restaurants, cafes and pubs opening. With an ambitious programme of regeneration planned, there is still more to do to ensure that our transport network is fit for the future.
We have been working closely with Transport for London (TfL) and Network Rail to install a new bridge between Selborne Road and First Avenue which will allow traffic to move from the existing Victorian-era structure to the new bridge – avoiding costly future maintenance work that would have required the total closure of the gyratory.
As a busy transport interchange and a main access point to the town centre shopping area, we want to ensure that changes to the town centre have a positive impact on everyone, whether you walk, cycle, use public transport, or drive.
