With many set to benefit from improvement works along the Roding Valley Way, it is no wonder that cyclist and local campaigner, Gill James is backing the Riding the Roding project in the Mayor’s Big Green Fund.
Redbridge Cycling Campaign sees the Riding the Roding Project as completing the most important cycle route in Redbridge. It finally offers the opportunity to cycle and walk off-road. It will link cycling residents of Ilford, Barking and Newham with Essex. It is ideal for families with children wishing for healthy exercise, being nearly all off-road and following a pleasant river route. It will offer people in a busy urban area safe access to a riverside environment. With sporting facilities such as Ashton Playing Fields and green areas such as Wanstead Park and Ray Park becoming easily accessible.
Local cyclists have been campaigning for many years to have the Roding Valley Way finished. The route is ideal for cycle commuters wishing to reach town centres such as Ilford and Woodford, which avoids busy and polluted roads. It is also the access point for those wishing to travel east towards the Redbridge Cycling Centre and West towards the City.
Therefore we urge you to vote so that everyone can benefit from the regeneration of this beautiful area.
