What are TFL proposing….

New signalised pedestrian crossings on Bow Road; eastbound cycle ‘early-start’ facility lengthened

They would install new signalised crossings to allow pedestrians to cross Bow Road

The eastbound cycle ‘early-start’ facility on Bow Road would be repositioned to make space for the new pedestrian crossing and redesigned similar to the layout of the westbound cycle ‘early-start’ facility on Stratford High Street. The length of the cycle ‘early-start’ facility would be increased to 18 metres

New signalised pedestrian and cycle crossings on Stratford High Street, and improved access to the River Lea towpath

They would install new signalised crossings to allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross Stratford High Street
These crossings would provide a connection for cyclists between Cycle Superhighway Route 2 westbound and the River Lea towpath

Existing traffic islands on Stratford High Street merged into one large kerbed island; eastbound contraflow lane removed

Merging the existing traffic islands and removing the eastbound contraflow lane would create a new area of public space.
This new island would be shared by pedestrians and cyclists to enable cyclists to cross Stratford High Street to access the towpath.


This is still a work in progress – see the TFL site here
