Answer for Olympic Park Cycling Provision

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I understand your concern and have asked my Cycling Commissioner to work with the LLDC to improve the cycling facilities in the park to bring it up to the standards set out in my Vision for Cycling.

Specifically, we are developing a new Quietway east-west route through the Park allowing cyclists to avoid Bow roundabout and the Stratford gyratory. Plans will address installing a ramp on the bridge H10 at Wallis Road and will also review cycling provision through the Park

Some of the most disappointing roads for cycling provision to the south of the site are controlled by Westfield, not the LLDC, and my Cycling Commissioner and the LLDC will be meeting Westfield in the near future to discuss this.
