  • Hackney - Isle of Dogs Cycle Route - detailed design consultation

    We want your views on our proposals to transform streets in east London linking Hackney and the Isle of Dogs to make it easier and safer for people to cycle and walk. Neighbourhoods including Victoria Park, Mile End and Limehouse would be connected by a new Cycleway, with improvements in each area also proposed for people walking.

  • Bethnal Green Liveable Streets engagement

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    From the consultation website:
    https://www.pclconsult.co.uk/liveablestreetsbethnalgreen/

    The Liveable Streets programme is part of the Love Your Neighbourhood initiative which aims to improve the area for all by making changes to the street infrastructure. By reallocating road space to walking, cycling and public transport, the scheme will encourage changes in travel behaviour which will help to improve people’s health and well being. The scheme also aims to restrict rat running to improve the safety of residential streets.

    Over a 4-year period, 17 areas across the borough have been identified for the scheme. The image below shows the different areas and phases of the scheme. Liveable Streets Bethnal Green is one of the schemes in the first phase of the project. Please click on the image to see an enlarged version.

    We would like to hear what is important to you and the changes you think should be made to encourage more walking, cycling and public transport use in Bethnal Green.

  • Hackney - Isle of Dogs cycle route

    This 7.5km route would stretch from Hackney to the Isle of Dogs via Westferry, Mile End and Victoria Park. It would connect with the cycle routes between Stratford and Aldgate and Barking to Tower Hill, as well as the proposed Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf crossing. There are currently two options in Hackney we want your views on.

  • Lea Bridge - Dalston cycle route

    This 3km route would fill the gap between Lea Bridge and the existing cycle route between the City and Tottenham at Dalston. From Lea Bridge the proposed route heads towards Lea Bridge Road to Lea Bridge roundabout, after which it joins quieter back streets including Downs Park Road and Sandringham Road to connect through to Dalston.

  • Balls Pond Road Cycle Superhighway 1

    Hackney council says:

    Hackney Council is working with Islington
    Council and Transport for London (TfL) to make
    improvements to the Cycle Superhighway Route
    1 (CS1) on Balls Pond Road.

    In February 2015 TfL in partnership with
    Hackney Council consulted on the CS1 route
    which included two options for Balls Pond Road:
    an option for advisory cycle lanes on each
    side of the road and an option for a two-way
    segregated cycle track. A positive response to
    the consultation was received showing overall
    support for the segregated two-way cycle track
    along Balls Pond Road.

    In autumn 2015 a second consultation was
    held by TfL in partnership with Hackney Council
    on a motor traffic reduction scheme in the De
    Beauvoir area to assist users of the CS1 route.
    We are now seeking your views on measures
    required to implement the segregated two-way
    cycle track along Balls Pond Road between the
    junctions of Culford Road and Kingsbury Road.
    These measures would complete the route, safely
    connecting the two halves of the CS1.

  • Englefield Road - De Beauvoir area - Environmental and cycle improvements to CS1

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Hackney says:
    "The Council is committed to making Hackney’s roads safer for everyone living, working
    and visiting the borough. These changes aim to create an environment that will encourage
    more walking and cycling, improve air quality and reduce emissions within the local area.
    Our Transport Strategy includes a Liveable Neighbourhoods Plan, which recognises that local
    streets are not just places to park vehicles or drive, walk and cycle on. They are places where
    we socialise and live our lives. An aspiration is to reclaim Hackney’s streets from motor
    traffic congestion and transform them into the most attractive and liveable neighbourhoods
    in London.
    One key objective for this proposal is to create a safer, more pleasant environment for
    cycling on the CS1 route through the De Beauvoir area.
    Back in autumn 2015 Transport for London (TfL) in partnership with Hackney Council
    consulted on a motor traffic reduction scheme in the De Beauvoir area that assists users
    of the CS1 route. These proposed modal filters have now been introduced.
    One of the proposals that was not taken forward at that time was a zebra crossing on
    Englefield Road near the junction of Culford Road. From continued feedback from residents,
    and users of the CS1 route through this area, the Council has now reviewed the design and
    location which provides a safe crossing point for cyclists, as well as pedestrians, crossing
    Englefield Road. Please see the drawing attached for more detail.
    Introducing this duel crossing point on Englefield Road at Culford Road will also allow the
    relocation of two of the existing modal filters to be moved to this new crossing point. Modal
    filters are closures to motorised traffic that still allow access for pedestrians and cyclists. "

  • Clifton Street/Worship Street

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    Hackney Council are proposing to filter out through motor traffic to create a new public square. Access for drivers would be maintained to the adjacent streets. The square would permit cycling.
