Quietway 6 cycle route consultation

Transport for London (TfL) is proposing a new Quietway cycle route between Mile End and Barkingside and has asked Tower Hamlets to help to deliver the new cycle route in this area.

We would like to know your views on the changes proposed to provide this new cycle route from Bancroft Road to Hepscott Road.

What are Quietways?

Quietways are a network of high quality, well signed cycle routes throughout London which run along quieter streets, parks and other off-road routes across inner and outer London. The routes will link key destinations and are designed to appeal to people new to cycling and those who already cycle who want to use quieter, low-traffic routes. Quietways will complement other cycling initiatives in London, such as the Cycle Superhighways.

Quietways also provide the opportunity to make streets healthier and create safer and more pleasant neighbourhoods for everyone, by reducing the speed and dominance of motor traffic, improving local air quality and investing in a better, more accessible, urban realm.

This route, Quietway 6, is a key element to delivering the Mayor for Londons Cycle Strategy and will provide a much improved cycling link to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from this borough.

To learn more about Quietways cycle routes please visit the TFL website.
