Lea Bridge Road

Lea Bridge Road 3

Construction work on Lea Bridge Road has begun and will continue until spring 2019.

While these works will help improve Lea Bridge Road in the long run, we acknowledge that there will be some disruption in the short term. There are likely to be delays to journeys so we want to give you advance warning so you can prepare.

To enable all of these improvements to safely take place, traffic management (traffic cones, traffic signals etc) will be put in place and some of the lanes of the road will also have to be closed at times. Signs will be placed along the road to warn drivers of the disruption and pedestrian and cycle diversions will also be in place when these are needed.

We want to reassure everyone that we, and our contractors, will be doing everything we can to keep any disruption to a minimum. We appreciate that disruption is always inconvenient so want to make sure you have all the information you need to plan your journeys.

Please view our plans for the first parts of section B we are constructing from Burwell Road to Perth Road and Belvedere Road to Flempton Road.

What can you do?

  • Look out for updates in Waltham Forest News, on this page and Twitter feed @wfcouncil
  • Allow extra time for your journey
  • Walk or cycle instead of driving if you are able to do so
  • Allow extra time if you are travelling by bus as we expect there to be an impact on bus times during the works.
