Update: You will have likely seen recent improvements to Bethnal Green’s streets, leading to a significant reduction in traffic. There are however increases in traffic where approved closures have been paused and concerns have been raised from residents regarding severance, particularly for north south journeys.

We are therefore undertaking a review and are speaking to residents, businesses and the emergency services to assess the impact of the scheme and see how we can make amendments to address concerns, whilst retaining the benefits of reduced traffic secured by the scheme.

Key areas of focus are:

  • Emergency service access throughout the area
  • Warner Place/Squirries Street
  • The closures at Pollard Row, Barnet Grove, Old Nicole Street
  • Ropley Street
  • Arnold Circus

Tower Hamlets would therefore like to invite you to one of our drop-in sessions on the local Bethnal Green Liveable Streets scheme.

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, bike and public transport.

Following two years of community outreach and engagement, we have begun construction on some works and will continue to review and discuss the impact of any changes with residents, businesses and schools.
