Section 2: Paul Street (Scrutton Street - Blackall Street)

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 2: Paul Street (Scrutton Street - Blackall Street)

This section passes along lower-traffic roads, with cyclists using the carriageway. The existing shared space and public realm improvements at Leonard Circus would be unaffected. Proposals include:

  • Sections of the carriageway would be resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable
  • New parking restrictions
  • Logos and signs would help wayfinding for cyclists
  • Existing shared space and public realm improvements at Leonard Circus unaffected
  • Existing cycling contra-flow on Paul Street retained

Parking

New parking restrictions on Paul Street north of Blackall Street and south of Luke Street  – no stopping from Mon-Fri, 7am-9am and 4pm-7pm – would replace current resident and Pay & Display restrictions
 

Cycling contra-flow

Existing cycling contra-flow retained with buffer area to parking bays
 

Public realm

Existing shared space and public realm improvements at Leonard Circus retained, including trees and seating
 

Resurfacing roads

Where Paul Street (north of Leonard Circus) forms part of CS1, it would be resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable
 

Impact on journey times

The proposed route for CS1 is expected to have minimal impact on other road users, including general traffic and bus passengers because, for much of its length, CS1 would run along residential streets, away from the majority of car, freight and bus traffic.

However, some changes in journey times for general traffic and buses are expected at the junction of Mildmay Road and Boleyn Road/Crossway, where CS1 crosses Old Street and Great Eastern Street, and at Balls Pond Road if option B is chosen.

For details, please read the CS1 traffic impact statement.
