Redbridge Council will be transforming the junction under the A406 fly-over, between Redbridge and Newham.

They are appealing to residents to share their views on the proposals.

The Ilford Garden Junction scheme is being funded by the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund and Redbridge and Newham councils.

It hopes to vastly improve the area, with extensive landscaping, lighting and new walking and cycling opportunities.

The work will be taking place over the coming year, with the first phase concentrating on upgrades to footways and crossing points, carriageway surfacing and lane reduction.

There will also be upgrades to the lighting, artwork and improvement to an existing bus stop.

Other phases will see a segregated two-way cycle route through the junction, improved connections to the Roding Valley Way cycleway and other regeneration opportunities for the area.

Cllr John Howard, cabinet member for environment and sustainability, said: “The new pavements, cycle lanes and lighting should encourage many more people to use this space.

“We want local people to feel part of it, that’s why we’re asking for your views.”

To have your say email ilfordgardenjunction@redbridge.gov.uk before the end of February.
