Newham Needs Your Ideas!

Current Suggestions from Residents

“Newham Council want to hear your ideas for making our streets better for social distancing, walking and cycling.”

The GreenwayActionGroup encourages you to submit ideas for improvements on the Greenway.  These could include:

  • Funds for an Full Environmental Audit for the Greenway
  • Improving crossing points
  • Better CCTV monitoring
  • Renewed focus for safety on the Greenway

To submit your comments please add your suggestion HERE

The councils page continues:

“Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, current Government advice is that public transport should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, and with over 50% of Newham households not owning a car, we need to make sure that walking and cycling is a safe and attractive option.

Newham also has the largest number of deaths attributable to poor air quality and encouraging more residents to walk and cycle, instead of private vehicles, will also help reduce air pollution.

You can make suggestions for wider pavements, new or better crossing points, reducing speeds and traffic volumes, changes to cycle routes or any other changes to support with social distancing, walking and cycling.”

  2. When travelling on the CS2 from Bow roundabout towards the Greenway, the cycle path passes a road on the left… the ground at this point is very uneven with loose stones. I am new to cycling and always worry that I’m going to wobble/ get a puncture at this point – whilst not wanting to slow down too much, as cars may be turning into and out of the road (sorry I don’t remember the name)
