Hoxton Area – Cycle Route Improvements

Closed 9 Dec 2016

Opened 7 Nov 2016

Overview

This consultation document is about gathering views from the public on proposals to improve the environment for cycling and walking along the Central London Cycle Grid in the Hoxton area. 

 

Why We Are Consulting

Why are changes being proposed for this area?
 
The Council is committed to making Hackney’s roads safer for everyone living, working in and visiting the borough. Creating an environment that will encourage more walking and cycling is a key part of the Council’s Transport Vision and an essential part of Hackney’s Transport Strategy.
 
Hackney Council has partnered with other London authorities and Transport for London (TfL) to deliver the Central London Cycle Grid (CLG). The CLG is a network of cycle routes in Central London Zone 1, containing a mixture of Cycle Superhighway and Quietway routes. Quiteways form a network of direct joined up cycle routes throughout London.
More information on the CLG, along with a number of other cycle initiatives can be found on TfL’s website: https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/improvements-and-projects/central-london-cyclinggrid To achieve a safer, more pleasant environment on
the CLG in Hackney, a number of improvements have been identified which will be funded by TfL and designed and implemented on Hackney roads by the Council.
 
The section of the CLG being consulted on includes Shepherdess Walk, Eagle Wharf Road, and Poole Street. Additional improvements are also proposed on Sturt Street and the Murray Grove junction with New North Road and East Road. Please refer to the enclosed overview plan for further information.
 
This CLG route has been prioritised for delivery in 2016/17 and will create a better street environment for residents, businesses, pedestrians and cyclists, whilst maintaining access for residents and allowing businesses to continue to operate in the past, the Council has consulted on and successfully implemented other traffic improvements at Shepherdess Walk.
 
The deadline for this consultation has been extended until the 9 December.
 
For details about the changes, please refer to the leaflet and maps attached.
