  • Actually, local people are rather proud of Westfield. They see East Londoners finally getting decent local shops that they can get to by public transport. The" real "community shops there and loves it

    Cycling to Newham has always been challenging as the only way in from the West was across the river lea and then around the one way at Stratord. Yes , the Mayor does not like us with an old "new labour " dislike for green policies. What East London needs is better and safer crossings for cylists of the Rivers Lea and Roding as well as N Circular. Haviing that would be a real Olympic legacy

    The olympics- the best way to get about will be on two wheels. If you are going then there are, I believe , bike parks at all the entrances. So you can park on Hackney Marshes and in Victoria Park.
