Transport chiefs have published their latest proposals for a new Cycleway linking Dalston and Walthamstow.
TfL's new route aims to make streets safer for cyclists and pedestrians and includes segregated tracks around Lea Bridge Roundabout, Kenninghall Road and Lea Bridge Road.
It will link with the mini-Holland scheme, which has created more than 8km of segregated lanes in Waltham Forest, and also tie in with the plans for segregated tracks in Mare Street.
The 3km route is one of 25 in areas identified by TfL as having the best potential for increase cycling figures.
The first stage was announced last month, and now the second stage is out for feedback. It includes an overhaul of the roundabout, a new path in Millfields Park and Powell Road being blocked to vehicles at the junction of Kenningall Road.
