As part of the mini Holland commission what if: projects have developed the urban design for the cycle superhighway along Lea Bridge Road. The implementation of a new cycle bridge commenced in the autumn 2015. Located in the Lee Valley Park the new cycle bridge spans the former aqueduct, a walking and cycle route connecting Dover to the Shetland Isles.

“Good to see high quality proposals for cycling infrastructure and also benefits for people walking. I particularly like the bold approach of the new bridge – nice too see something being done properly rather than shoe-horning sub-standard facilities in to existing situations.”, online engagement, Nov.-Dec. 2015

“Peering through a fence at the start of what will become the greatest ever borough cycling scheme. Lea Bridge Road.”
