  • Tower Hamlets Local Infrastructure Fund consultation

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    The council is consulting on the Local Infrastructure Fund (LIF) to give local people a say in defining the infrastructure priorities for their areas.

    The consultation period will run for six weeks from 27 June 2017 to 8 August 2017.

    Tower Hamlets has grown rapidly in recent years, and a number of new housing and employment developments have been built across the borough. Additional growth is expected in the future and the council recognises that this can put pressure on local services and infrastructure - that is, on areas like transport, schools, healthcare facilities and parks/open spaces.

    To deal with the impacts, developers are required to pay a financial contribution called the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The borough has apportioned to each LIF Area, 25 per cent of the money from which the income was generated. Please refer to the LIF Area Profile documents for the specific amounts collected so far for each LIF Area. The council must then use this money to support the development of the local area, by addressing the demands that development places on the area, and by making sure the right infrastructure and services are in place for residents.

    In addition to understanding local people’s infrastructure priorities, the council is engaging with local people and giving them an opportunity to nominate projects that they would like to see delivered in their neighborhood. These can be new or existing projects already identified by the council in the LIF Area Profiles. Prior to the allocation of funding to any project and in line with the regulations, you will need to clearly demonstrate how the project will deliver the provision, improvement, replacement, operation and/or maintenance of infrastructure or anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.

    This consultation provides local people with an opportunity to nominate up to three (new or existing) projects. Prior to the allocation of the funding to any project and in line with the regulations it will need to be clearly demonstrated how the project will deliver the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure or provides anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.

  • TfL Proposals for Shoreditch High Street between Hackney Road and New Inn Yard

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    Junction of Shoreditch High Street with Rivington Street and Calvert Avenue:

    The following measures would make it safer and more comfortable for cyclists to travel east-west through this staggered junction across Shoreditch High Street:

    We would introduce a right-turn ban for all traffic except cycles exiting Rivington Street into Shoreditch High Street. This would improve safety for cyclists waiting to turn into Rivington Street and pedestrians using the nearby pedestrian crossing. Our latest traffic counts show a maximum of 33 vehicles per hour making this right turn, and we are satisfied alternative routes exist
    We would remove a southbound general traffic lane on Shoreditch High Street to accommodate two new right-turn pockets and three new traffic islands. The traffic islands would protect road users waiting to turn right into either Rivington Street (cycles only) or Calvert Avenue (all traffic)
    We would reduce the size of the footway by a small amount on the northern corner of Shoreditch High Street and Calvert Avenue to accommodate the turning movements of larger vehicles once the new traffic islands are in place
    Junction of Shoreditch High Street and Hackney Road:

    We would enlarge the traffic island to the west of the southbound slip road, reducing the carriageway width and the number of southbound lanes from two to one. This would create more footway space for pedestrians and reduce the distance people have to cross. Making this section of road a single lane for motor traffic would also create space for an advisory southbound cycle lane and reduce the likelihood of conflict between cyclists and motor traffic
    Shoreditch High Street:

    We would install a new southbound bus lane (operational Monday to Saturday, 7am to 7pm) in place of a general traffic lane from south of Rivington Street to the pedestrian crossing opposite New Inn Yard. This bus lane would also be available to cycles, taxis, motorcycles and coaches. The loading bay outside the Ace Hotel, and the existing bus stand and bus stops on Shoreditch High Street would not be affected by the bus lane

  • Rivington Street and Charlotte Road Pedestrian, Cycle and Air Quality Improvemen

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    Rivington Street between Great Eastern Street and Garden Walk It is proposed to relocate the existing parking bays to improve the westbound cycle contraflow along this one-way road, making it safer for cyclists travelling in the opposite direction towards oncoming traffic.

    The current cycle contraflow arrangement forces cyclists to ride very close to parked vehicles increasing the risk of collisions when someone opens the door on the path of a cyclist.

    The current arrangement also encourages travelling westbound cyclists to ride in the middle of the road risking a head on collision with a vehicle travelling eastbound.


    The Proposals include:

    Relocating the existing permit holders and motorcycle parking bays located on the southern side of Rivington Street, to the other side of the road. The overall number of permit holders and motorcycle parking spaces in this section of Rivington Street will

    not change.

    Relocating the parking bays to the northern side of Rivington Street will make this section safer for cyclists, making it more attractive and encouraging more people to cycle along this route and the wider Q13.

    2 Rivington Street – Charlotte Road junction

    This junction is a place where local workers, residents and visitors pass through, but at the moment it is a confusing place with insufficient identity that doesn’t cater to its Hackney wants to improve the public realm at the Rivington Street – Charlotte Road junction, bringing benefits for the local community and making walking and cycling at this location easier and more accessible.


    The Proposals include:

    Raising the junction and the approaches and using different materials to encourage drivers to slow down, making it safer for people walking and cycling at the junction.

    Introducing a shared space area at the junction with a kerb-free flat surface with no barriers, allowing pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles to occupy the same space, with more freedom of movement.

    Enhancing the public realm to improve the overall value of the junction, including high quality materials to improve aesthetics and recognise the architectural quality of adjoining buildings.

    Removing kerbs to allow easier movement around for wheelchair users, the elderly and those with pushchairs.

    Relocating the motorcycle parking bay on Charlotte Road (north) to the other side of the road to create deflection and reduce vehicle speeds on the southbound approach to the junction.

    Relocating the cycle parking on Charlotte Road (north) to Charlotte Road (south) toimprove access and minimising the use of traffic signs and road markings to reduce clutter.

  • Chatsworth Road/Millfields Road/Powerscroft Road New Signalised Junction

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    Part of the Quietway 2 scheme to facilitate crossing of Chatsworth Road.
    Deadline is 25 November 2016 - so please let us have comments by 18 November 2016 at the latest.

    The proposals include:

    1 Replacing the existing zebra crossing with traffic signals at the Chatsworth Road\ Millfields Road\ Powerscroft Road junction. This will be designed to make the junction easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists as there have been a total of seven accidents in recent years. Six of these involved cyclists. There will be a Green Man crossing on each approach to the junction and one that will replace the zebra crossing.

    2 Introducing a raised table across the junction of Chatsworth Road and Millfields Road to reduce traffic speeds.

    3 Creating a new link and crossing for cyclists between Powerscroft Road and Millfields Park. This will be a new shared space with the route for cyclists clearly marked for the benefit of all users. New cycle stands will also be installed.

    4 Introducing new footway into the western arm of Millfields Road as part of the shared space. The existing barrier will be replaced with a lockable bollard and new trees.

    5 Extending double yellow lines on the south side of Millfields Road, up to the junction with Sewdley Street to facilitate safe bus and traffic movement.

    6 Removing two parking bays on Powerscroft Road at the junction with Chatsworth Road to improve cycle access and the bus alignment approaching the junction.

    7 Relocating the Disabled bay outside No. 176 Chatsworth Road and removing one parking space to increase visibility at the new crossing point.

    8 Extending the footway to reduce the pedestrian crossing distance and reduce traffic speed.

  • Whiston Road

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    The proposals for this route along Whiston Road include:

    Removing some of the existing speed cushions and replacing them with raised carriageway
    tables. These speed tables will be raised to footway level to provide a traffic calming feature
    to assist in reducing the speed of traffic along Whiston Road, making it a safer environment for
    pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

    Please let us have your comments before 17 October 2016 so that we can draft a group response.

  • Lower Clapton Road / Urswick Road Junction Consultation

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    Hackney Council "are proposing to alter the layout of the junction to remove existing traffic and pedestrian signals. They would be replaced by an ‘informal’ roundabout and distinctive informal pedestrian crossings. The road surface would be raised to help encourage lower vehicle speeds. However, there would still be a detectable kerb height between the road and the footway."

    "The proposed changes have been designed to help the junction operate more efficiently and are expected to result in improved journey times for all users, particularly bus services. We also expect that pedestrian crossing times would improve. The proposals have also been designed to reduce vehicle speeds and create a more pleasant environment."

    "In designing our scheme we drew inspiration from several successful applications of the concept. For example, schemes in Bexleyheath (London Borough of Bexley), and Poynton (Cheshire), have resulted in significant improvements to the junctions, transforming the urban realm in areas that were previously blighted by traffic congestion and pollution."

  • Seven Sisters Road Consultation

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    The Woodberry Down Development Team (Hackney Council, Berkeley Homes and supported by Transport for London) are consulting on "changes to Seven Sisters Road, from Green Lanes to the west and Amhurst Park to the east, as part of the on‑going regeneration of the area".

    They have offered six 'ideas':
    1) Reduce road to two lanes in either direction (one general traffic lane, one bus lane)
    2) Reduce road to two lanes (one general traffic, one bus) in either direction, but widen to three lanes at junctions
    3) Increase the number of pedestrian crossings
    4a) Add a 'pedestrian island slip' between the two carriageways
    4b) Add a wide 'pedestrian island slip' with planting and trees
    5) Segregated cycle lanes
    6) Widen bus lanes

    Different combinations are possible. For example, 1 (change traffic lanes) would be necessary for 4 (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes). 1 (change traffic lanes), 4a (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes) would work together, whereas 2 (change traffic lanes but keep three lanes at junction) would make pavement widening and segregated cycle lanes impossible.

    Please respond by Sunday 15th February so that Natalie and Harry can draft a response representing Hackney Cycling Campaign's position.
