Lights are being replaced, paving stones relaid and roads resurfaced across the borough.

The works taking place are part of the council’s Keep Newham Moving plan, which has had £100 million injected into the scheme for the next decade.

It is designed to improve roads, footpaths and streetlights to ensure that pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can enjoy travelling comfortably.

Sir Robin Wales, Mayor of Newham, said: “We are already making quick headway with our plans to make life more pleasant for residents moving around the borough.

“Better, brighter lighting alongside smoother roads and pavements all make a big difference to residents, whether they are a mother pushing a pram, or a cyclist or driver making their way to work.”
