Forest Gate Station

We have secured £2.298m from Transport for London to improve the area around Forest Gate Station. Works started on site in summer 2017 and are mostly completed.  

Key improvements include: 

  • Wider pavements, review of level changes outside the station and resurfacing of footways 
  • Removal of the slip road to Woodgrange Road from Forest Lane. This will become a signalised T-junction with better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and a new public space where the clock and trough will be relocated 
  • Improvements to public spaces, including new trees and planting, seating areas and better lighting 
  • Introducing a 20mph speed limit and traffic calming measures. 

Works that still need to be completed include planting more trees in the local area, installing ‘Forest Gate’ cycle racks outside the station and creating a water connection to the fountain for drinking water.
