You told us that Wadeson Street and Vyner Street are key walking and cycling routes to and from the area including local schools, Victoria Park and Mowlem Children’s Centre.
We are proposing to widen the pavement on Wadeson Street and improve the crossing for wheelchair users and those with pushchairs.
By narrowing the junction with Cambridge Heath Road we can reduce the crossing distance and slow vehicles entering the street.
You said: "Tree planting on Wadeson Street would be welcome to improve the air quality and to improve the feel of the place."
Road Safety and Traffic Changes
In the last five years a number of collisions involving cyclists have been recorded at the junctions of Wadeson Street and Vyner Street with Cambridge Heath Road. We want to improve the safety of these junctions by making both Wadeson Street and Vyner Street one-way. There will be no loss of parking as part of the one-way system. By simplifying the road layout, we will make for a more cycle-friendly route for those coming to or from Hackney via Cambridge Heath Road. Vyner Street will allow contraflow cycling. A road closure is also proposed on Vyner Street, west of Lark Row, to address the anti-social driving. Access to Lark Row will be maintained via Wadeson Street.
Traffic Calming on Sewardstone Road
We want to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists on Sewardstone Road by improving the existing speed humps. We are proposing speed humps which extend fully across the carriageway to slow vehicles.
Public Space Improvements
We also want to improve the look and feel of the area, by introducing tree planting on Wadeson Street, Mowlem Street and Lark Row.
