Section B: The Mall (North Horse Ride)

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 9 Feb 2015


The Mall (North Horse Ride) is an access only road with low vehicle flows for car and coach parking. We are not proposing to make changes to the existing road layout, except for some minor layout and signal changes at the junction with Marlborough Road.

Changes to Marlborough Road junction

  • We would create space between the existing pedestrian and cyclist crossings across Marlborough Road
  • We would straighten the cycle crossing to provide a more consistent and intuitive alignment
  • These changes would be made by removing the short left turn traffic lane on Marlborough Road. One left turn lane and the right turn lane would be retained. We would also move the eastern vehicle exit on North Horse Ride slightly north and relocate the vehicle gate and exit barrier.

Traffic impact of these proposals

The overall proposals for the East-West Cycle Superhighway are expected to mean longer journeys for motorists and bus, coach and taxi passengers at busy times, although we have made changes to the overall scheme to reduce the impact. Please see for more information. The proposed changes to the road layouts in the parks are not in themselves expected to have a significant impact on traffic, although motorists affected by the traffic restrictions at the junction of Storey’s Gate, Horse Guards Road and North Carriage Drive would need to find alternative routes.

TfL is developing wider traffic management plans for central London to help reduce the traffic impacts of this proposed scheme and others, including those proposed by London local authorities and developers. This will include investing in advanced traffic signal technology to allow us to better manage traffic depending on differing conditions at any given time. There will also be customer information to enable road users to make informed journey choices and campaigns to encourage road users to check before they travel.
