If you work or live in the Canary Wharf area you may have noticed some crowding on the Jubilee line. The good news is that this is to become a thing of the past. The Mayor’s new plan has been unveiled and our Canary Wharf estate agents take a look at it.

Travelling to and from your Canary Wharf home or workplace

TFL (Transport for London) have undertaken some research into a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists to aid with crossing over into Canary Wharf and Canada Water. There is a huge footfall into both of these areas currently as business thrives and opportunities grow daily in both places. These increased numbers have led to crowding on the Jubilee line bringing people into the area on their daily commute.

The proposed bridge will reach from Rotherhithe, on the south of the Thames over to Canary Wharf on the north. The hope is that providing a bridge directly into the area will encourage people to walk or cycle instead of using the tube. Support for the plan has come from resident, cycling and accessibility groups.

Living and working in E14

Easing the commute will be a breath of fresh air for Canary Wharf residents and workers.

This will be great news for those working and living in E14. It will provide a direct link south of the river without any costs or harsh environmental effects.

The Mayor of London is hopeful that by 2041 80% of all Londoners will make the majority of their trips by public transport alongside bicycles and on foot. It is an ambitious plan. However, with bridges like this one being provided, it is possible. This is just one of many proposed bridges outlined in an effort to reach the Mayors goal. Such safe and direct crossing options will undoubtedly be favourable with anybody planning on buying in E14 in the future.

Continued Growth in Canary Wharf

There is constant property development in Canary Wharf and Canada Water at the moment. The areas are both thriving.

The TFL report said “It is predicted that there will be a continuing growth in cycling across London. Together with employment and population growth in both the Canary Wharf and Canada Water areas, this will generate an increase in journeys and more demand for walking and cycling facilities in the area,’
