Section 16: Tottenham High Road (north) - Town Hall Approach Road

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 16: Tottenham High Road (north) - Town Hall Approach Road

CS1 would run alongside a major road, with a segregated two-way cycle track separating cyclists from motor traffic. Proposals include:

  • A contraflow cycle track would permit two-way cycling on a section of one-way road
  • Clearly defined crossing areas with tactile paving to help pedestrians cross cycle track
  • Seating, cycle parking and other street furniture relocated a short distance to make room for new cycle track and footways
  • Logos and signs would help wayfinding for cyclists
  • Mature trees unaffected

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 between 3 and 4 metres wide within western footway
  • Cycle track to include raised border to delineate cyclist and pedestrian areas
  • Cyclist 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 with pedestrian priority at approaches to crossings
  • Cycle track routed behind traffic signals at junction of Tottenham High Road and Town Hall Approach Road to avoid delays to cycling journeys
  • Seating, cycle parking and other street furniture relocated a short distance to make room for new cycle track and footways
     


 

Contra-flow cycle track

Southern section of Town Hall Approach Road, which is one-way for general traffic, would feature 1.8m-wide segregated contra-flow cycle track within the western footway to allow two-way cycling
 

Pedestrian crossings

Clearly defined crossing areas for pedestrians across the cycle track near bus stops, including tactile paving
 

Trees

  • Mature trees at junction of Town Hall Approach Road and Tottenham High Road not affected by new cycle track or footway design
  • Trees within footway of Tottenham High Road north of Broad Lane unaffected
     

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.
