TfL launch London’s first designated walking route in almost 20 years

Transport for London have launched their first designated London walking route in almost 20 years.

Called the Green Link Walk, it’s a 15 mile route from Peckham to Epping Forest, connecting communities along it to over 40 green spaces.

It’s been introduced to meet demand, with a 10% increase in leisure walking in the capital since the pandemic – and TfL’s own research reveals that 57% of Londoners wanted more of the space dedicated to walking.

The Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman opened the route in Clerkenwell earlier today.
