Ropley Street consultation update

Thank you to everyone who took part in our consultation for reducing through traffic on Ropley Street and Colombia Road. The consultation was on three options which can be viewed here. The survey has now closed and we will update this page in due course.

New closures and permit exemption scheme update

In November 2021 we undertook a review of the Bethnal Green Liveable Streets project. We spoke to residents, businesses and the emergency services to assess the impact of the scheme and see how amendments can address concerns, whilst retaining the benefits of reduced traffic secured by the scheme.

In January we set out our changes to the scheme which included completing the scheme by installing the two remaining closures, but introducing them as closures as well as implementing a new residential exemption scheme.

Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the planned road closures due to technical issues with the implementation of the ANPR cameras, and delays to camera and software testing, and exemption permits for residents.

We apologise for the hold up, but think it is necessary the proper checks have been carried out to ensure as smooth implementation as possible. We are working hard to ensure we can install the scheme as soon as practically possible.
