  • Camden - Tottenham Hale cycle route

    Created by Simon Munk // 4 threads

    At approximately 12km, this route would connect the town centres of Tottenham Hale, Seven Sisters and the Nag's Head, making it easier for people to make local journeys and use local services. The route would use both main roads and quieter back streets.

  • Balls Pond Road Cycle Superhighway 1

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    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.

  • Future Shoreditch

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    Hackney Council are consulting on Shoreditch's future planning frameworks. The plan acknowledges the negative effects of current traffic levels for people walking and cycling, and the area's character and air quality. There are a number of good suggestions for improvements to traffic management in the full document from page 82 onwards. https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/planning-regulatory-services/future-shoreditch-issues-and-options/supporting_documents/Future%20Shoreditch_Issues_and_Options_December_2017.pdf

    My first reaction is simply that we should offer our support in general terms, but if members have further thoughts on this, please could you share them by 21st February so I can include them in our response.

  • City Fringe Ultra Low Emission Streets

    Created by Harry Fletcher-Wood // 1 thread

    Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets are collaborating to cut air pollution in the area they are referring to as the 'City Fringe'.

    As part of this, they are proposing 'Ultra Low Emission Streets' in the Old Street/Great Eastern Street area. During peak hours (7-10 and 4-7 Monday-Friday) these streets would be restricted to people walking and cycling, local residents, and drivers of Ultra Low Emissions vehicles (electric or those emitting less than 75g CO2/km).

    The area includes the CS1 route along Paul Street.

    Full details: https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/streetscene/city-fringe-ultra-low-emission-streets-1/

    Please share any thoughts you have by Saturday 10th February so I can formulate a group response by the deadline (Wednesday 14th).

  • Hoxton Area – Cycle Route Improvements

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    The proposals for this route include:

    Location 1: New North Road/Eagle Wharf Road/Poole Street junction.

    • Closing Poole Street and Eagle Wharf Road to motorised traffic at the New North Road junction except for cyclists.
    • Installing new signals with signalised pedestrian crossings at the junction. The new crossings will replace the need for the existing pedestrian crossing on New North Road outside Bracklyn Court, which will be removed.
    • Replacing the one-way system at Eagle Wharf Road with a two-way traffic system between Bracklyn Street and New North Road.
    • Carrying out public realm improvements such as widening the pavements, raising the road level to pavement level and planting trees along Eagle Wharf Road.
    • Installing a new loading bay and additional residents parking bays at Eagle Wharf Road.
    • Converting Poole Street to a two-way traffic system between Imber Street and New North Road.
    • Relocating the existing residents parking bays to improve accessibility and loading facilities at the junction.
    • Raising the road level to pavement level at Poole Street outside the Studios building.

    These measures will reduce traffic flows at the Eagle Wharf Road/New North Road/Poole Street junction while improving the pedestrian facilities and making it safer for cyclists to cross the main road. The public realm improvements will help create a more attractive environment for residents, pedestrians and cyclists.

    For details of the proposals at the Eagle Wharf Road/New North Road/Poole Street junction please refer to layout plan for Location 1 enclosed.

    Location 2: Murray Grove

    • Introducing a two-way traffic system at Murray Grove between Shepherdess Walk and New North Road.
    • Single yellow lines will be replaced by double yellow lines (no waiting at any time restrictions) to improve visibility, road safety and facilitate the smooth flow of traffic where required.
    • The overall number of resident parking bay spaces on Murray Grove will increase by eight, with four new additional loading bays provided as part of the proposals.

    These measures will facilitate the flow of traffic including buses between Shepherdess Walk and New North Road in both directions.

    For details of the proposals at Murray Grove please refer to the layout plan for Location 2 enclosed.

    Location 3: Shepherdess Walk/Murray Grove junction

    • Installing additional traffic signals at the Murray Grove, Shepherdess Walk and Micawber Street creating a two-way traffic system at Murray Grove.
    • Installing signalised pedestrian crossings at the junction.
    • Refurbishing the pavements where required.
    • Installing junction entry tables at the Murray Grove and Micawber Street junctions for step free pedestrian crossings.

    These measures will enable the introduction of a two-way traffic system at Murray Grove which is currently prohibited. The changes will also improve accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians around the junction.

    For details of the proposals at the Shepherdess Walk /Murray Grove junction please refer to the layout plan for Location 3 enclosed.

    Location 4: New North Road/East Road/ Murray Grove junction.

    • Introducing changes to the traffic signals and junction layout at Murray Grove, New North Road and East Road to allow eastbound traffic on Murray Grove, making it two-way.
    • Raising the road level to pavement level on New North Road (south) and reducing the traffic lanes to one exit lane.
    • Introducing a new pedestrian crossing at New North Road (north).
    • Carrying out public realm improvements on New North Road such as widening and resurfacing footways, raising the carriageway, planting trees and installing benches.

    These measures will allow for the introduction of two-way traffic movement on Murray Grove while improving the pedestrian and cycle facilities at the New North Road junction.

    For details of the proposals at the New North Road/East Road/Murray Grove junction please refer to the layout plan for Location 4 enclosed.

    Location 5: Sturt Street

    • Installing a gated closure with cycle and emergency access at Sturt Street to the west of Shepherdess Walk. This would discourage the amount of non-local traffic using the area. This will close Sturt Street to motorised traffic from City Road.

    Please refer to the enclosed drawings for details of the proposals. Additionally visit consultation.hackney.gov.uk to find out more details about the specific locations within the scheme where improvements are proposed.

    Signal Proposals

    All signal proposals are still going through the Transport for London Review Process. Residents will be advised of changes that may result from this process before implementation of proposals.
