In your response to Q2015/0854 you mentioned that TfL, the GLA, Newham Council and other local stakeholders were carrying out a study into potential improvements for cycling and walking on Westfield Avenue and Montfichet Road and potentially other roads close to the Park. Now that this study is complete, can you please report back on its findings and share which of its recommendations are to be implemented?

The design study into potential adaptation of Montfichet Road and Westfield Avenue was commissioned by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), with TfL, the London Borough of Newham, Westfield and others represented on the project working group. The output is a set of preferred design concepts and I am happy to share the results of this once the work is complete in the autumn.

The ambition is to deliver a step change in the quality and provision of facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. The next stage of work for LLDC is to explore implementation and funding opportunities with stakeholders before proceeding any further with detailed design work. This work is at an early stage of development and at this stage it is too soon to make any commitments about what will be implemented.
