I've been reviewing the Mayor's Transport Strategy 2018 and, to my surprise, I see no plans to build cycling lanes to connect areas like Ilford or Barking with London center until 2040!!?
I am a usual cyclist commuter and find really sad than proper segregated cycling lanes finish at the Stratford area, leaving cyclist coming from areas like Ilford, forced to use paths like Romford Road or Barking Road, which are extremely crowded and in a really appalling state for two wheels users.
I really don't see myself using these arteries for 10-20 years more. I think you need to really reconsider these plans .
