The London Borough of Tower Hamlets council are proposing changes in the area surrounding York Square that aim to reduce cars cutting through local streets, making them safer, quieter and more pleasant for residents.
Proposals include changes to roads and junctions around York Square and just north of Salmon Lane, with the aim of reducing through-traffic on local streets and making crossing easier for pedestrians. In addition, pavement widening is being proposed on Aston Street to improve the environment around Cayley Primary School.
Please visit the website https://consultprojectcentre.co.uk/yorksquare to find out more information on these proposals and fill out an online survey by midnight on Sunday 19 July 2020. Keep an eye on the website for updates on the project.

Liveable Streets is a multi-million pound borough-wide street and public space improvement programme. It aims to improve the look and feel of public spaces in neighbourhoods across the borough and make it easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot and bike.
We’ve listened to your concerns on issues including:
- The volume and speed of vehicles in residential areas
- Unfriendly pavements, public spaces and poor crossings for pedestrians
- Hostile environments for cyclists, particularly for children
We would now like to hear your feedback on the proposals, which you can do by filling out the below survey by Wednesday 29 July 2020.
What is proposed and why are these proposals important?
Every day there are over 33,000 journeys within the Bow area. Of these, 49% are vehicles travelling through the area and not stopping. This means over 16,000 journeys are from non-residents of the local area and these vehicles are contributing to the already unacceptable levels of air pollution on your streets, outside your schools and around your local shops.
The Liveable Streets proposals will help improve road safety, public spaces, air quality and give the streets back to the residents. However to achieve this some local residents who want to drive may have to travel longer distances.
Seven main schemes have been developed to improve walking and cycling, create better public spaces, discourage through-traffic and improve air quality. We are proposing traffic changes and calming measures to make local streets safer for everyone. Pedestrian improvements, better street lighting, tree planting and cycling infrastructure are also considered.
This programme makes recommendations to the Highways and Transport Committee.
This thread describes a mechanism by which local communities can engage with decision-making bodies in order to achieve progress in their areas.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership has been renamed 'Vision Zero Partnership' for the next stage in its strategy, spanning 2020-2030.
New thread for committee meetings
The cycle lane on the Northside of the Hills Rd rail bridge has many potholes where the red tarmac surface is missing. This is extremely hazardous for cyclists to avoid whilst descending with car lanes on either side. You could easily fall off into the path of motor traffic.
