Bow Interchange is a busy grade-separated road junction on the East Cross Route (part of the A12 road) between Bow and Stratford in east London, England. It is a triple-level junction where the A12, Bow Road (the A11 road), and Stratford High Street (the A118 road) meet. The River Lea runs underneath the junction.

The East Cross Route is a major road in East London which runs north to the North Circular Road and south to the Blackwall Tunnel.

Cycling[edit]

Cycle Superhighway 2 CS2 runs from Stratford to Aldgate via the roundabout east to west. Following the deaths of two cyclists at the roundabout in late 2013 and pressure from the London Cycling Campaign,[1][2] Transport for London began introducing measures to improve safety for cyclists and other road users at the junction.[3]

Public transport[edit]

The nearest stations are Bow Church DLR station and Bromley-by-Bow tube station.
