Cable Street filtered permeability proposals
LB Tower Hamlets are consulting on a filtered permeability scheme in the Cable Street area that aims to improve the pedestrian and cycle environment - see the consultation announcement and flyer distributed to residents.
The area is blighted by rat-running with 76% of the motor vehicle traffic travelling along Cable Street passing through. This scheme is taking first steps to reduce this by introducing filtering at several junctions.
With a reduction in motor traffic volume, steps can also be taken to address the lack of capacity of the CS3 two-way cycle tracks. This would be achieved by converting the two-way lanes into one direction of travel for cycling and using the much quieter carriageway for the other direction.
You can submit your own responses directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for submissions is 14 March 2016.
