A new cycle routewill link Hackney to the Isle of Dogs, the mayor of London has announced.
Sadiq Khan revealed the 8km route, which will run through Canary Wharf, Mile End and Victoria Park, as one of six new routes across the capital, in a bid to create more cycling infrastructure to allow more people to get on a bike.
Design work, which will involve both Tower Hamlets and Hackney councils, is set to begin immediately.
Mr Khan said: “I’ve committed to invest record amounts in making cycling easier and safer for Londoners, and I’m delighted that work is now beginning on designing the next generation of high-quality cycle routes across the capital.
“Working closely with the boroughs, we’re providing new routes in both inner and outer London, including in areas that haven’t previously seen serious investment in cycling infrastructure.”
