The consultation has concluded.

As we move into the next phase of the coronavirus response with the easing of some movement restrictions, we could see many more people walking and cycling in Tower Hamlets. Crowded pavements and cycle lanes will make it difficult for people to maintain social distancing as they return to work or education.

Public transport must only be used when absolutely necessary. This will ensure that people making essential journeys can get around as safely as possible.

We're working with Transport for London to identify places where temporary changes are needed to support social distancing or that would benefit from cycling and walking improvements. The changes could include but are not limited to the widening of pavements, a change to the road layout or the introduction of dedicated cycling space.

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who shared ideas and suggestions of locations where and how we could create safe space for walking, cycling and improved access for people with disabilities.

The transportation team have reviewed all the feedback and submitted a number of funding bids. An update on forthcoming schemes will be posted here and via e-mail to all participants as soon as possible.
