A walkway between two stations which was supposed to be built 18 years ago will open next month, according to MP Stella Creasy.

Ray Dudley Way will link Queens Road and Walthamstow Central stations.

The Family Housing Association (FHA) agreed to build it after receiving planning permission for homes in Exeter Road, but never completed the work.

In 2008 Solum Regeneration promised to build the walkway as part of its tower block development by Walthamstow Central station.

The council later secured a High Court ruling enabling it to bill FHA for the work and construction began in March.

Despite council assurances that it would open this month, Stella Creasy has told constituents in a newsletter that the link will open on August 11.

The walkway is named after the late Ray Dudley, a rail campaigner and long-running member of the Barking-Gospel Oak Line User Group (BGOLUG).
