Closed Submit your comments

Overview

Tower Hamlets Council is committed to making the borough a safer place for all road users by delivering a range of street improvements in the area; intending to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transport users alike.

Influencing positive changes in road user behaviour is key in providing a safe road environment for the community and although changes in road layout can’t fully resolve this, redesign of our streets can help. Therefore, Chrisp Street and the surrounding areas are currently being invested in with aims to improve road safety for the local community.

Please give us your feedback by filling in the survey (below the map). You may also like to add a comment to our interactive map of the wider area.

What is proposed?

The proposed improvements aim to significantly reduce traffic, reduce vehicle speeds and create an improved pedestrian environment on Violet Road, Morris Road, and Chrisp Street. Please note that these works will include the addition and removal of a number of parking bays, including resident’s parking spaces. The details of these proposals are outlined in the tabs to the left.

Below is a map overview of the areas intended to be worked on. Please click the image to view a larger version.

Devons Road (A)

The proposals include moving the existing pedestrian crossing on Devons Road further east, away from the junction with Violet Road. Additional pedestrian and cyclist crossing points would be included within the Devon Road and Violet Road junction upgrade.

Violet Street – Devons Road junction (B)

It is proposed to remove the existing roundabout at this junction and upgrade to traffic lights. This would involve narrowing the entrance to Violet Road, incorporating crossing points for pedestrians, improving cycle facilities and creating space for public realm improvement. Violet Road (next to the new junction) would be resurfaced with natural coloured surfacing to visually break up the road. This will encourage vehicles travelling north to slow down on the approach to the junction.

Violet Road (C)

Proposal to improve the pedestrian and cycling environment on Violet Road through the following measures:

  • Pavement widening and planting to reduce the straightness of the road, which will reduce vehicle speeds and improve the look of the area.
  • Raised tables with coloured surface treatments to reduce vehicle speeds.
  • Coloured surface treatment on carriageway from outside Caspian Wharf to the canal bridge to encourage slower vehicle speeds.
  • Adding up to four on-street parking bay locations (including residents only parking).
  • Relocation of existing zebra crossing. New uncontrolled crossings to be installed within pedestrian desire lines.
  • A new non-signalled pedestrian crossing point across Violet Street to provide pedestrians with an alternative crossing location.

Morris Road (D)

To provide a safer environment for all users through the following:

  • Coloured surface carriageway, uncontrolled pedestrian crossing and public realm improvements next to the junction with Barchester Street.
  • Remove existing raised table next to Fawe Street and create controlled crossing point. Pavement widening will be used in this location to narrow the road width and reduce vehicle speeds.
  • Segregated cycle lane to be introduced in both directions from Rifle Street to Chrisp Street. This section of carriageway will also have coloured surface treatment.
  • Current ‘ghost island’ road markings to be removed and a physical island separating lanes, installed. Central reservation island will have planting and greenery. Reduced lane width will encourage slower vehicle speeds.
  • Improved junction layout at Chrisp Street and Morris Road as well as Chris Street and Godalming Road.
  • Road closure on Chrisp Street outside St Saviours School to remain.
  • Removal of one parking bay location (including residents only parking).
