The A121 is a fast road and the network currently proposed by the CAP lacks a connection from Loughton to the various forest route proposals that meet at the Wake Arms roundabout.
There is an existing footway on the west side of the A121 but it is entirely inadequate even for pedestrians, being at the level of the main carriageway and in a poor state of repair.
A properly made unsegregated shared use path would be appropriate for the low levels of pedestrian traffic on the route. This proposal would open up access to the forest to many potential cyclists from Loughton, as it would also connect to the Epping Forest (Corporation of London) trails at Furze Ground.
At Baldwins Hill, cyclists coming from the Wake Arms toward Loughton can join that road and either cross Goldings Hill and continue into Loughton, or join the existing quiet route to Buckhurst Hill.
