The work, which includes £2.5m of resurfacing of the Borough’s roads, and £2.3m on complementary measures for the new Elizabeth Line, will be detailed in a report at Neighbourhoods Service Committee on Wednesday 6 April.
Just over £5m of the improvement is set to be directly funded by the Council to improve the highways network and ensure that Redbridge remains a safe place to travel, whether you are a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian.
The work includes:
- £2.5m for resurfacing pavements and roads
- £1.3m for patching roads and pavements where full resurfacing is not necessary
- £330,000 for replacement of some of the Borough’s older lamp columns and lanterns which are not energy efficient
- £300,000 for projects to make the Borough’s roads safer and flow more freely
In addition there is also funding for projects from Transport for London which totals more than £6m.
- £2.3m improvements in the vicinity of the Borough’s future Elizabeth Line Stations, namely Ilford, Goodmayes, Seven Kings and Chadwell Heath
- Quietway Route between Hainault and Wanstead – £524,000 to create a cycling Quietway, high quality backstreet route to encourage people to cycle more, this is part of a London-wide initiative
