Section 1: Dalston (Sandringham Road, Abersham Road and Downs Park Road)

Closes 9 Sep 2019

Opened 17 Jul 2019

Overview

These roads are residential roads with on-street parking. Our proposals would reduce the volume of traffic using Sandringham Road and help people cycling and walking cross busier roads more easily. A new link to Cycle Superhighway 1 would be created at the junction of Crossway and Boleyn Road. See the drawings below for detail or open them here (insert link).

Summary of proposals

  • Route to connect to Cycle Superhighway 1 at Boleyn Road junction with Crossway
  • A new segregated cycle track on the north side of Crossway connecting to a cycle and pedestrian priority crossing at John Campbell Road
  • A new signalised junction with pedestrian and cycle facilities at the junction of Kingsland High Street and Sandringham Road
  • No entry to Sandringham Road except for cycles
  • Sandringham Road to become left turn only at the junction with Kingsland High Street
  • Change of priority at the junction of Sandringham Road and St Marks Rise to favour the Cycleway
  • New cycle friendly road humps on Downs Park Road
  • Improvements to the public realm
  • Changes to some parking and loading provision

Improvements for people cycling

  • Low-level signals with early release for people cycling and two-stage right-turn facilities to connect Boleyn Road (Cycle Superhighway 1) with Crossway
  • Two-way cycle track and a new pedestrian and cycle crossing on Crossway to connect with John Campbell Road
  • New signal controlled junction of Kingsland High Street and Sandringham Road with a cycle only signal for people cycling from John Campbell Road to Sandringham Road
  • Access to Sandringham Road from Kingsland High Street for people cycling only
  • Sandringham Road to be made one way westbound for approximately 70m between Kingsland High Street and Birkbeck Road, with a segregated eastbound cycle track
  • Change of priority at the junction of Sandringham Road and St Marks Rise to favour the Cycleway
  • Addition of low-level signals and early release for people cycling at the junction of Downs Park Road and Amhurst Road
  • Pavement build-outs to improve visibility for all vehicles exiting Abersham Road and to reduce vehicle speeds where side roads meet the Cycleway

Improvements for people walking

  • Wider pedestrian crossings at the junction of Boleyn Road and Crossway
  • New pedestrian crossing on Crossway
  • New signal controlled junction at Kingsland High Street and Sandringham Road with pedestrian facilities

  • Public realm improvements with new planting and trees at several junctions

Road design and layout

  • The existing signalised pedestrian crossing on Kingsland High Street, 70m south of Sandringham Road would be consolidated with the new pedestrian crossing at Sandringham Road. This would ensure that there are no significant changes to journey times for road users, including buses on Kingsland High Street
  • No access to Sandringham Road from Kingsland High Street except for people cycling
  • No right turn from Sandringham Road to Kingsland High Street
  • Sandringham Road one-way except for people cycling between Birkbeck Road and Kingsland High Street
  • Change of priority on Sandringham Road at the junction with St Mark’s Rise

Parking and loading

  • Existing resident permit and pay and display parking to be reduced by six spaces on the north side of Crossway and one space on the south side of Crossway to incorporate a new pedestrian and cycle priority crossing
  • Changes to locations of parking and loading bays on Kingsland High Street to accommodate the proposals. No net change of parking and loading provision
  • Two parking bays for taxis removed from Sandringham Road to accommodate contra-flow cycle track
  • Existing resident permit and pay and display parking to be reduced by three bays on the south side of Sandringham Road
  • Existing resident permit parking to be reduced by four bays on Downs Park Road near to the junction of Amhurst Road
