Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 15: Ermine Road - Tottenham High Road (south)

This section would run mostly alongside a major road, with a segregated two-way cycle track separating cyclists from motor traffic. Proposals include:

  • Clearly defined crossing areas for pedestrians across the cycle track, including tactile paving
  • Seating, cycle parking and other street furniture relocated a short distance to make room for new cycle track and footways
  • Two bus stops moved
  • New parking restriction on Ermine Road
  • Improved pedestrian crossings
  • Logos and signs would help wayfinding for cyclists
  • One tree removed
  • New cycle parking

Cycle track

New two-way cycle track within the western footway to separate cyclists from motor traffic on Tottenham High Road (A10):

  • Two-way track within western footway
  • Two-way track mostly 3 to 3.2 metres wide, narrowing to 2.2 to 2.4 metres under railway bridge by South Tottenham station
  • Cycle track to include raised border to delineate cyclist and pedestrian areas
  • Cycling priority over side and access roads
  • Cycle track passes behind bus stops on Tottenham High Road, separating cyclists from buses
  • Cycle track converts to shared-used areas for pedestrians and cyclists at approaches to crossings (with pedestrian priority)
  • Clearly defined crossing areas for pedestrians across the cycle track, including tactile paving
  • Existing pedestrian and cyclist crossings at West Green Road and Seven Sisters Road widened and realigned
  • Western footway around South Tottenham railway bridge enlarged, with eastern footway reduced
  • Footway enlarged where Ermine Road meets Tottenham High Road, with section of footway converted to shared pedestrian and cyclist area to provide access to shared pedestrian-cyclist crossing
  • Seating, cycle parking and other street furniture relocated a short distance to make room for new cycle track and footways
     

Safer junction

Traffic island on Crowland Street removed to provide easier access to cycle lane
 

Pedestrian crossings

  • Existing shared pedestrian and cyclist crossings at Seven Sisters Road and West Green Road widened and realigned
  • Clearly defined crossing areas for pedestrians across the cycle track near bus stops, including tactile paving
     

Bus stops

Two bus stops on Tottenham High Road, one northbound and one southbound, relocated 20 metres north
 

Parking

New double red line parking restrictions on south side of Ermine Street where it meets Tottenham High Road
 

Trees

  • Tree near entrance to Seven Sisters Underground Station removed to increase space for cyclists and pedestrians
  • Other trees unaffected
     

Cycle parking

New cycle parking at two locations near Seven Sisters Road
 

Decluttering streets

Barrier on Ermine Road replaced by two removable bollards
 

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.
