Transport for London have launched a consultation to improve cycling and walking routes between Ilford and Barking Riverside. These improvements have the potential to significantly improve access to the new developments in the borough as well ass Barking and Ilford town centres.
There are also plans for new rail and river links. Many of the roads are currently congested with traffic making walking or cycling intimidating or unpleasant experiences. It is hoped that the proposed improvements will address this issue.
