  • Liveable Streets Bow Trial engagement

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    Following recent engagement on the Liveable Streets programme in the Bow area, we are planning to trial some changes to the road layout. These changes are based on suggestions made by local residents and stakeholders.

    This trial will help us understand the effects these changes have on the road network and allow residents and businesses to experience the positive impact reduced traffic has on the local area.

    During the trial we will be running several events and activities to take advantage of the reduced number of motor vehicles passing through the Bow area, and encourage local journeys to be made by sustainable modes such as walking and cycling. Keep an eye out for more information on these.

    Please note that as a part of our preparation for the trial we have consulted with the emergency services, bus operators and Transport for London to ensure they can deliver their services using the changed road layout.

  • Chrisp Street Corridor

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    Tower Hamlets Council is committed to making the borough a safer place for all road users by delivering a range of street improvements in the area; intending to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transport users alike.

    Influencing positive changes in road user behaviour is key in providing a safe road environment for the community and although changes in road layout can’t fully resolve this, redesign of our streets can help. Therefore, Chrisp Street and the surrounding areas are currently being invested in with aims to improve road safety for the local community.

    Please give us your feedback by filling in the survey (below the map). You may also like to add a comment to our interactive map of the wider area.

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

    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 Bow is one of the schemes in the first phase of the project.

    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 Bow.

  • 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.

  • Bromley-by-Bow and Marshgate Lane

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    From TfL:

    Overview
    We are working with the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Newham and the London Legacy Development Corporation to enhance the transport links and public realm at Bromley-by-Bow and Marshgate Lane. The proposals would make it easier for people to cross both the A12 and Stratford High Street by providing new or upgraded pedestrian and cycle facilities, improving access for vehicles, enabling new bus routings, encouraging more walking and cycling, and connecting local communities and new developments in the surrounding area.

    What are we proposing?
    We would like your views on our initial ideas to change the road layout at Bromley-by-Bow and Marshgate Lane.

    Bromley-by-Bow
    Two signalised junctions on the A12, to the north of Bromley-by-Bow station, would provide access to proposed residential and commercial development to the east of the A12
    Vehicles travelling northbound on the A12 would be able to turn right to access these new developments directly, without having to make a u-turn at Bow roundabout
    A bus-only link across the A12 would connect Bromley-by-Bow and new developments to the east
    Signalised crossings, replacing the existing subway at Three Mill Lane, and improvements to the subway at Bromley-by-Bow station would make crossing the A12 easier and more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists
    The proposals would also give west Bromley-by-Bow better links to the open space around the River Lea, the Lea River Park & Leaway, and the Three Mills historic buildings and park
    A segregated cycle track on the east side of the A12 would help improve access to the local cycle network, including the Lea Valley Towpath and Cycle Superhighway 2

    Marshgate Lane
    A new link road, connecting Marshgate Lane with Sugarhouse Lane and creating a four-arm junction with A118 Stratford High Street, would allow buses, cyclists and pedestrians to cross the Bow Back River via a new bridge, improving access to Pudding Mill Lane station and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

    Enabling future bus changes
    In addition to making the area more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists, the proposals for Bromley-by-Bow and Marshgate Lane would enable the creation of a new bus link. This would run from the west of the A12 at Bromley-by-Bow, through new developments either side of the River Lea, and north to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Any potential changes to bus routes in the area would be subject to a future and separate consultation.

    Traffic impacts
    Should we decide to take the proposals forward to the next stage of design, we would undertake traffic modelling to understand any potential effects of the changes, and summarises the results as part of a further stage of consultation on detailed proposals.

    Why are we proposing this?
    Bow and the wider area are changing. Local regeneration, growth in housing and the legacy development of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are all expected to contribute to changing demands on the transport network. Our key aims for the area are:

    Making the A12 Blackwall Tunnel Northern Approach easier to cross. People prefer being able to cross streets at their convenience. Fast-moving or heavy traffic can make this difficult
    Supporting growth and local businesses by providing better access to new developments, encouraging more walking and cycling, and connecting communities
    Creating a more liveable place. People are more likely to use our streets when their journey is interesting and stimulating, with attractive views, buildings, planting, and where other people are using the street

    Bow Interchange
    In spring 2015 we consulted on improvements to make it easier for pedestrians to cross Bow Interchange safely and provide a new area of public space. Seven new signalised crossings, including two pedestrian/cycle crossings, were opened in June 2016, improving connectivity between Bow and Stratford. You can find more information on the 2015 consultation at: tfl.gov.uk/roads/bow-vision

    We have looked at further options to redesign Bow Interchange and remove both the roundabout and flyover, giving pedestrians and cyclists more direct access to facilities. However, we have now deferred development of this scheme until we can identify the significant funding required to take the plans forward.

    Public exhibitions
    We will be holding the following public exhibitions, where you can view the proposals, speak to members of the project team and submit your response to the consultation:

    Kingsley Hall, Powis Road, London E3 3HJ

    TBC
    Saturday 8 April, 1200-1600
    Thursday 20 April, 1600-2000

    The Vision for Bow and the Healthy Streets Approach
    The pedestrian improvements at Bow Interchange were delivered as part of the Vision for Bow: a place which all road users, passing through, find accessible, safe and connected. You can find more information on the Vision for Bow at tfl.gov.uk/roads/bow-vision

    Announced in February 2017, the Healthy Streets Approach incorporates the objectives and principles of the Vision for Bow. We will therefore deliver the proposals at Bromley-by-Bow and Marshgate Lane as part of this approach, which sets out a long-term plan for improving Londoners’ and visitors’ experiences of our streets, helping everyone to be more active and enjoy the health benefits of being on our streets. You can find more information on the Healthy Streets Approach at tfl.gov.uk/healthy-streets

    Other developments in the Bow area
    The overview map above includes proposals for road layout changes in the Bow area that would be delivered by organisations other than Transport for London. We have included these to show how our proposals fit in to the wider regeneration of the Bow area. These changes are included in the Bromley-by-Bow and Pudding Mill Supplementary Planning Documents, which were consulted on by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) in winter 2016. Details of these consultations can be found below.
