The Mayor of London has announced £1.1 million of funding to improve the area around Forest Gate station.

The money, which will be used to improve the attractiveness of the streets, introduce cycling and walking measures and improve safety, was announced today as part of Transport for London’s new £220m business plan.

The cash comes as part of TfL’s Crossrail complementary measures funding, which supports schemes that improve the areas around stations on the new Elizabeth line.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “By making walking and cycling easier and safer, and funding projects that will improve air quality, we can help to deliver transport and public space improvements that are going to make a real difference to the lives of Londoners.”
