Section 1: Sun Street - Paul Street (south)

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 1: Sun Street - Paul Street (south)

This section passes along lower-traffic roads, with cyclists using the carriageway. There would be a new motor-traffic-free public space for pedestrians and cyclists between Worship Street and Dysart Street, with new paving and seating. Proposals include:

  • New motor-traffic-free area for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Safer junctions for all road users
  • Changes to one pedestrian crossing
  • Sections of the carriageway resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable
  • Signs to mark the start and end of CS1 on Sun Street
  • New trees (subject to investigation)

Parking removed to create space for new motor traffic free area for pedestrians and cyclists

  • Bollards create new motor-traffic-free area between Worship Street and Dysart Street, including enlarged footways, two-way cycling, new paving and seating
  • Parking bays removed
     

Safer junctions

  • New raised table to slow traffic, with motor vehicle access to Dysart Street and commercial entrances retained
  • Footways enlarged on north side of Worship Street
     

Pedestrian crossing

Traffic islands removed from Sun Street pedestrian crossing
 

Decluttering streets

7 new trees (subject to investigation)
 

Resurfacing roads

Where Paul Street (south of Dysart Street) 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.
