You may have noticed in the latest edition of the Newham Mag (distributed on 19th June) that more changes are coming to Forest Gate and Maryland… a new cycling route! And there is an opportunity for you to have your say via an informal consultation.
The Aldgate to Hainault Quietway route (will be known as Quietway 6) will run from near Mile End through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, Forest Gate, and Manor Park before heading east to the London Borough of Redbridge. The 9 schemes proposed are for location in or bordering Forest Gate North ward (Boundary roads: Sebert Road,Capel Road, Leytonstone High Road and Janson close).The route will begin in autumn 2015 and finish it by summer 2016.
The initial consultation is informal asking you for your general views on the concept designs. Following this the designs will be changed where appropriate from consultation comments and in order to provide as good a Cycling Level of Service (CLoS) as possible, particularly at the junctions of the busier roads.
A statutory consultation will be carried out later this year and will be a more localised consultation for those schemes which will have potential impact as appropriate to local residents, key stakeholders, and any residents who requested to be kept informed during the first phase.
