Key junction in borough

Blackhorse Road junction is a key public transport interchange in the borough and upgrading the junction to better meet the needs of the local community is a priority for the Council.

We know that with the recent opening of the Walthamstow Wetlands and 2,500 new car free homes being created by local regeneration, the area will get busier so we need to make sure it is easy and safe to get around.

Changes to support sustainable transport

Cycling in Waltham Forest

As more people choose to live, work, and visit Waltham Forest we expect to see an increase in the use of walking, cycling and public transport services as the primary modes of transport.

The changes to the junction, as well the section of Forest Road between the station and the reservoirs, aim to support this shift to more sustainable modes of transport, benefiting residents, commuters, and helping to support the vibrant economy.

Work starts in May

Work will start in May 2019 and end in summer 2020.

It will include:

  • creating wider pavements to cater for more pedestrians
  • making the junction more attractive with trees and high quality materials
  • improving the bus facilities
  • introducing new segregated cycle tracks and
  • improving pedestrian access to better connect local people to surrounding communities, public spaces, local amenities, and other public transport services

Changes during the work

Cycle hub generic

During the construction work we will try to keep disruption to the minimum but some changes will be necessary including:

  • There will be a reduction in the amount of cycle parking outside the station
  • During peak times there may be some congestion, please plan your journey accordingly and use alternative routes or transport where possible
  • There will be work signs and barriers present, please take note of these to make sure you stay safe when traveling through the junction.
