Pedestrian Improvements

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.

Wadeson Street and Vyner Street plan: proposed no entry to Vyner Street and made one-way westbound, Wadeson Street to be made one-way eastbound and no entry at junction with Mowlem Street, proposed pavement widening on Wadeson Street with relocated parking bays.Wadeson Street and Vyner Street Plan
