New London Architecture

Waltham Forest Active Travel Centre

Proposed

The solar-powered Active Travel Centre at Walthamstow Central operates as a base for secure cycle parking, local authority cycle hire, bike repair and a hub for the borough’s Behaviour Change Unit.
Zero Carbon London

Zero Carbon London

→ Building can be dismantled and reassembled elsewhere
→ Aiming to achieve Net- Zero for embodied and operational energy
→ Solar panels to be used on 60m roof structure
→ Two-tier cycle parking system

Linked to the expanding network of new cycle and walking routes, the proposed solar-powered centre operates as a base for secure cycle parking, local authority cycle hire, bike repair and a hub for the borough’s Travel Behaviour Change Unit. Integrated into the existing transport interchange of Walthamstow Central, the proposed travel facility creates direct links between the street and the platform integrating capacity displays, the provision of 500+ cycle spaces, educational spaces, a viewing platform, café and bike repair to facilitate and promote cycling as a convenient and accessible way to travel and encourage more multi-modal journeys across the borough and London.
