  • Walthamstow Town Centre. Hoe Street

    Created by Simon Still // 2 threads

    "We’re working in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to deliver a range of improvements to make the Hoe Street and Selborne Road junction a more attractive, safer and better transport interchange for all.

    "We've been working closely with TfL and Network Rail to install a new traffic bridge to replace the existing Victorian-era structure. The first stage of the bridge installation is now complete. This means that costly future maintenance work that would require total closure of the gyratory area, from the Selborne Road and Hoe Street junction to First Avenue, has been avoided. The Network Rail (former road bridge) is being converted into a public space.

    We're now asking local residents, businesses and road users to help us decide on the final look and feel of the public areas the project will create.

    The town centre transport improvements will improve journey times and overall reliability, increase access for pedestrians and cyclists, and create public green spaces to boost air quality.

    "The illustration below shows how the improvements could look:

    Hoe Street railway bridge: create a new public space with high quality surface finishes, seating, space for market stalls and kiosks, trees and planting.
    Hoe Street junction with Station Approach junction: new trees and plants in level and raised beds
    Hoe Street junction with First Avenue: enhanced public green space with new trees, seating and cycle parking.
    Hoe Street junction with St Mary Road: new accessible green space adjacent to an upgraded walking and cycling track towards Walthamstow Village.
    Plant new trees and a variety of plants to complement the existing species in the area, and improve air quality"

  • London Assembly investigation: Walking & Cycling at Outer London Junctions

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London Assembly says:

    Our investigation
    What different approaches could TfL and London boroughs take to improve junctions and increase walking and cycling in Outer London?

    Small pockets of improvement don’t change the fact that most London streets are dominated by traffic and noise. They are hostile places even to step out into for a pint of milk.

    On behalf of the London Assembly Transport Committee, Caroline Russell AM is investigating how our streets and junctions can become more people-friendly.

    Get involved
    There are a number of specific questions the Committee is seeking to answer. Please address any questions where you have relevant views and information to share, and feel free to cover any other issues you would like the Committee to consider.

    Are there lessons to be learned from previous junction improvements?

    How can we enable more people to walk and cycle?

    How can we make our streets and junctions less hostile to people getting around by bike and on foot?

    How do you get all road users on board?

    Please email transportcommittee@london.gov.uk by August 11 and share the investigation on Twitter using #OuterLondonJunctions

    Key Facts
    The Mayor and TfL are promoting walking and cycling as a form of active travel and a way to reduce health inequalities - however, currently, over 40 percent of Londoners fall short of the recommended 150 minutes of activity per week.

    TfL research has found that people who live in Outer London tend to walk less than those who live in Inner London. Public transport coverage is lower and car ownership is higher in Outer London, with cars making up a larger share of journeys. In particular, people who live in Outer London are less likely to walk children to school, walk to see friends or relatives, and walk to pubs, restaurants and cinemas.

    In 2015:
    53 percent of Inner Londoners walked at least five journeys a week, compared to 35 percent of Outer Londoners
    47 percent of Inner Londoners walked as part of longer journeys on other forms of transport at least five times a week, compared to 41 percent of Outer Londoners
