Section 2 – Stratford gyratory: Broadway / Great Eastern Road / Stratford High Street

Closed 11 Feb 2013

Opened 7 Jan 2013

Overview

 

Proposals:

  • Segregated two metre wide cycle lane would replace a general traffic lane in both directions
  • Proposed cycling on some sections of the footway to improve access to Stratford Station and Town Centre
  • New cycle Advance Stop Lines (ASLs)  
  • Exemption for cyclists in bus only contra-flow on the Broadway at the junction of Great Eastern Road
  • Pedestrian and cyclist crossing on Stratford High Street opposite Cam Road 
     

Stratford gyratory

The island at the junction of Great Eastern Road, Broadway and Stratford High Street has three existing pedestrian and cyclist  crossings and proposed pedestrian and cyclist shared use area on the footway. 

These pedestrian and cyclist crossings would be used for cyclists to cross over onto the contra-flow bus lane to continue along the route on Broadway. There would be a sign before the junction to show cyclists the manoeuvre they would need to make.

The proposed shared use footway for pedestrians and cyclists on the north-western side links the route to Farthingale Walk for improved cycle access to Stratford Station, including additional cycle stands.

 

Stratford High Street

On Stratford High Street, a new two metre wide segregated cycle lane is proposed by removing one of the three traffic lanes on Stratford High Street in both directions (including small sections of bus lane where still existing).

 

Cam Road

At Cam Road, new cycle Advance Stop Lines (ASLs) on Cam Road and Stratford High Street westbound would allow cyclists to get ahead of other traffic. The existing crossing would be upgraded to a pedestrian and cyclist crossing to allow cyclists to cross Stratford High Street and access the route. 

For cyclists from Cam Road, the left turn only restriction would be removed allowing them to access Stratford Town Centre via a dropped kerb onto the central reservation and then a pedestrian and cyclist crossing on Stratford High Street eastbound.

The proposals have undergone traffic modelling analysis, which indicates that this would not have a significant impact on other road users.
