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.
