CYCLISTS who feel a bit wobbly about using London’s busy superhighways can be rest assured they now have a quieter option.

Redbridge has its very own quietway after it was officially opened last week, giving riders a low-traffic, leafy route from Barkingside to Wanstead Flats.

Funded by Transport for London (TfL) in partnership with cycling charity Sustrans and Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure, the route makes full use of the newly-built bridge in Ilford’s Valentines Park, before heading through Wanstead Flats and across east London.

The Redbridge Quietway 6 route one seven planned across the capital, with the final phase expected to go as far as Mile End.

Cyclists in the borough are also set to benefit from an improved Roding Valley Way after the final section between Royston Gardens and Empress Avenue opened last week.

Cutting the ribbon, Redbridge cabinet member for environment and sustainability Cllr John Howard said he was “delighted” both are up and running.

He said: “It provides a greener and more modern transport network for Redbridge and will encourage more residents to cycle by providing a safer and easier route. T

“The Quietway and Roding Valley Way route will open up new areas of the borough for residents to walk and cycle, improving health and reducing pollution.”
