Proposed improvements on River Lee

Walkers and cyclists will be able to enjoy walking or cycling from the Thames at Limehouse all the way to Ware and Hertford.

LCC activists as well as walking groups have been campaigning for a solution to the unpleasant and unsafe road crossing at Bow Flyover that currently interrupts this idyllic off-road route.  

There will be a temporary diversion for cyclists and walkers when approaching Bow Flyover while the floating towpath is being constructed. Works will start in mid February and run till June. For details of diversions and alternative routes click here or see the link on the right.

Until now people following the River Lee Navigation north or south between Three Mills Island, the Olympic site and the Lee Valley Park beyond, had to leave the towpath at Bow Flyover.

Now a suspended waterside path below the flyover and a bridge to the north of it will be constructed, creating a continuous 28-mile waterside walking and cycling route from the Thames to Hertfordshire.

British Waterways says the new riverside crossing will provide a safe commuter route for those living and working in the local area and additional access to the Olympic Park and new residential developments at Sugar House Lane, Bromley-by- Bow North and South.  It also improves access to the Lee Valley Regional Park .

The project is funded by London Thames Gateway Development Corporation, British Waterways, Olympic Delivery Authority, Transport for London, Design for London and Walk London.
