Proposed changes

Three collisions have occurred at the Stepney Way / Sidney Street junction over a three year period causing four slight injuries. All three collisions occurred due to failing to look properly when turning out of the junction or hitting a vehicle in front.

Improving road user behaviour is key to reducing collisions and although changes in layout can’t fully resolve this, redesign of our streets can help.

The Stepney Way/Sidney Street junction is currently being invested in to improve the safety of the junction and the environment you live in.

We propose to:

  • Introduce traffic lights at the existing give-way junction to make it safer for pedestrians to cross.
  • Implement a pedestrian only stage at the junction – this means all traffic lights will be held on red to road users to allow pedestrians to cross the junction safely.
  • Provide advanced stop lines marked on each arm of the junction to benefit cyclists.
  • Remove the guard rails, kerb build outs and the zebra crossing as the new traffic lights will provide a safer crossing facility.

Background

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets 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.

In 2014, there were 932 personal injury collisions recorded in Tower Hamlet. Implementing 20mph zones and limits across the borough has had a positive impact on reducing collisions and improving safety for all road users, but evidence shows us there is more that can be done.

Improving road user behaviour is key to reducing collisions and although changes in road layout can’t fully resolve this, redesign of our streets can help.

We are planning to make a range of improvements to the area, to help create better connected walking and cycling routes (including to the many schools in the area), making our roads safer and reducing the volume of traffic using these roads as a ‘rat run’. We also want to improve the look and feel of the area, making it an even more enjoyable, and safer, place to live, work and visit.

Stepney is the first area that is seeing improvements in the borough but other areas will follow. Over the past few months we have been talking to local residents about improvements that can be made in the Stepney area and now want to ask you your feedback on the proposal for the Stepney Way / Sidney Street junction.

Quote from the Mayor:

“This is an exciting opportunity to improve the streets of Stepney. There are lots of small changes we could make which would really improve the streets in this area and discourage dangerous driving.

We want to know your ideas – where do you think a small change would make a big improvement?

We’ve put forward some of our ideas but we know it is local residents who know their streets best. So share your ideas and together we can Transform Stepney and make it an even better place to live.  We’re rolling out improvements in the Stepney area first of all, but other areas throughout the borough will follow soon.”

What happens next?

The results of this consultation will be analysed and presented to Councillors for a final decision. If the proposal is accepted work is expected to start autumn 2018.
