The Scheme 2 proposal focuses on transforming the town centre, the heart of Bow, and aims to establish a pedestrian friendly space, attracting more visitors to the area.
We want to create an environment that attracts more people and makes it more pleasant for the thousands of pedestrians walking along Roman Road every day. By extending the existing timed pedestrian hours from the three to seven days and investing in the public space, we hope to achieve this goal.
We propose to increase the pedestrian hours to 10am to 4.30pm, seven days a week.
After removing the day time traffic, we propose investing heavily in this area by widening pavements, tree planting, and creating a new public space, where people can stop, rest and spend time. By doing this the town centre becomes even more of a local ‘destination’ and supports the local economy to thrive.
If proposals are carried forward, further local engagement on public spaces will be carried out with businesses, market traders and local residents.
