Walthamstow town centre transport and bus service improvements

Walthamstow town centre transport and bus service improvements

Walthamstow town centre is changing and London Borough Waltham Forest wants you to be a part of it by telling them what you think about their proposals.

They’re working in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to deliver a range of improvements to make the Hoe Street and Selborne Road junction a more attractive, safer and better transport interchange for all.

Changes to the road layout

Thee've been working closely with TfL and Network Rail to install a new traffic bridge to replace the existing Victorian-era structure. The first stage of the bridge installation is now complete. This means that costly future maintenance work that would require total closure of the gyratory area, from the Selborne Road and Hoe Street junction to First Avenue, has been avoided. The Network Rail (former road bridge) is being converted into a public space.

They're now asking local residents, businesses and road users to help them decide on the final look and feel of the public areas the project will create.

Public spaces : please tell them what you think
They want everyone who will travel across this new public space to provide feedback on how the space should be used, and help shape the green spaces on First Avenue and St Mary Road.

Come along to a drop-in session, view some suggested ideas for the public spaces, and help shape how this space will look and be used.

They will be on the bridge deck between First Avenue and Selborne Road, E17 on:

Friday 15 June, 8am to 10:30am
Tuesday 19 June, 4pm to 6:30pm
Wednesday 20 June, 10:30am to 1pm
If you're unable to attend the drop-in event, please email your public space and green space ideas to

 E17roadworks@walthamforest.gov.uk.

Please send your ideas to us before Sunday 22 July.
