A group of local cyclists are proposing a trial of three new shared-use routes – for pedestrians and cyclists – in Wanstead Park.

“There has been a marked increase in the number of people cycling in the park since lockdown began. We would like to see some positive changes, which protect both walkers and cyclists,” said a Redbridge Cycling spokesperson. The routes include a path from Wanstead Park Avenue to Warren Road and a path connecting Warren Road with the Ilford side of the park.
