River Lea towpath link in Bow attracts thousands of walkers and cyclists

Earlier this year, we reported that the so-called ‘missing link’ towpath under Bow Flyover would be built.

Last month the suspended platform has been installed, attracting thousands of walkers and cyclists.

Local LCC groups campaigned for years to get this section of towpath installed.

The link means users no longer have to race across four lanes of traffic on what is otherwise a peaceful waterside route from Limehouse Basin to Waltham Abbey.

I reckon this new link will be a victim of it's own success and will need to be windened within the next year or two to be able to cope with demand. It's too narrow for signifcant two way traffic.

I'm absolutely delighted with the new towpath link. My cycle trips from Limehouse up the Lea are now completely relaxing and traffic-free. Congratulations!

Congratulations on a fantastic route past that awful junction - we discovered it on Bank Holiday Monday on the way down from Pickets Lock to Limehouse Basin. Top marks to all involved. Totally disagree with the comment about the width - it's a towpath! and it's great!
