Scheme 4 Antill and Coborn Roads

30 Jun 2020

With the proposed closure on Old Ford Road and bus gateway on Roman Road, traffic is likely to seek alternative cut-through routes. In order to stop this from happening and protect walking and cycling routes for residents and young children travelling to school, work and the town centre, several changes to traffic are proposed in this area.

We propose the following:

  • Closure at the junction of Selwyn Road and Antill Road.
  • Timed closure under the rail bridge on Coborn Road.
  • To re-introduce the right turn from Coborn Road into Bow Road. We are also investigating the possibility to reinstate the right turn from Bow Road into Coborn Road with TfL.
  • A cycle filter at the existing road closure on Morgan Street. One parking space on Grove Road will be removed to facilitate this.
  • To remove three parking spaces on Coborn Road to create passing spaces for vehicles.

Coborn Road Closure

We are consulting on different options for how Coborn Road could operate:

  • 24 hours a day, Monday to Sunday (this option would allow for a new public space at the closure point with planting and wider pavements)
  • Between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday
  • From 7am to 10am, and 2.30pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday

Public Space Improvements

By removing the traffic, we are able to plant new trees and planting to make the area look and feel more pleasant. We also want to improve the lighting under the rail bridge, making it feel safer and introduce some street artwork to reflect the old Coborn Station history.
