Have your say on the Liveable Streets Old Ford Road West proposals!

Liveable Streets is a multi-million pound borough-wide street and public space improvement programme. It aims to improve the look and feel of public spaces in neighbourhoods across the borough and make it easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport. Tower Hamlets would like to hear your views on the proposals for the Old Ford Road West project area.

We've listened to your concerns on issues including:

  • The volume and speed of vehicles in residential streets, impacting safety, air and noise pollution.
  • The need for better, cleaner and greener public spaces.
  • Hostile environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

What is proposed and why are the proposals important?

Four schemes have been developed to improve walking and cycling, create better public space, reduce through-traffic and improve air quality.

We are proposing traffic changes and calming measures to make local streets safer for everyone. This includes crossing improvements, better street lighting, tree planting, and School Streets.

Every day thousands of vehicles are travelling through the area and not stopping. These vehicles are contributing to the already unacceptable levels of air pollution on your streets, outside your schools and around your local shops. These proposals are also planned to work together with the approved Bethnal Green scheme and proposed changes in the Bow Liveable Streets area. This scheme in the Old Ford Road West area will provide essential links by creating improved active travel routes for everyone.

The Liveable Streets proposals will help improve road safety, public spaces, and air quality. However to achieve this some local residents who want to drive may have to travel longer distances.

All properties will still be accessible by vehicle, but people will also have greater choice on how they get around by removing barriers to walking and cycling.
