Section 8: De Beauvoir Road - Culford Road

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 8: De Beauvoir Road - Culford Road

This section passes along lower-traffic residential roads, with cyclists using the carriageway. Several junctions would be redesigned to improve safety for cyclists on CS1. Where Culford Road meets Ardleigh Road and Englefield Road, the new junction would provide safer north-south journeys for all road users and enlarged footways and public space. Proposals include:

  • Safer junctions for all road users
  • New banned turn for motor traffic between Ardleigh Road and Culford Road
  • Parking bays relocated
  • New and improved pedestrian crossings
  • New trees and raised flower bed moved
  • Existing speed humps would be rebuilt with a smoother shape, allowing more comfortable journeys for all road users
  • Roads along CS1 would be resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable
  • Logos and signs would help wayfinding for cyclists

Public realm

Where Culford Road meets Ardleigh Road and Englefield Road, the new junction would provide safer north-south journeys for all road users. Proposal would include significantly enlarged footways, along with new trees, paving and cycle parking.
 

Banned turn for motor traffic between Ardleigh Road and Culford Road

To improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians, motor traffic would no longer be allowed through newly designed Ardleigh Road and Culford Road junction. Motor traffic would still be able to access all properties in Ardleigh Road via Culford Grove, Buckingham Road and Southgate Road.
 

Parking

  • New 8 metre parking bay on De Beauvoir Road, north of Northchurch Terrace
  • Parking bay on De Beauvoir Road, south of Northchurch Terrace, reduced by 8 metres
  • Parking bay at junction of De Beauvoir Road and Northchurch Terrace moved
  • Parking bay on Culford Road, north of Englefield Road, enlarged by 11 metres
  • Parking bay on Culford Road, north of Englefield Road, reduced by 4 metres
  • Parking bay on Ardleigh Road reduced by 3.5 metres
     

Pedestrian crossings

  • New pedestrian crossing on Culford Road, with footway build-out and raised table to reduce traffic speeds
  • Wider pedestrian refuge on De Beauvoir Road
  • Pedestrian refuge on De Beauvoir Road moved to better suit pedestrian desire line
     

Trees

  • 8 new trees at junction of Culford Road and Ardleigh Road (subject to investigation)
  • Raised bed removed at junction of De Beauvoir Road and Northchurch Terrace, with 6 new trees planted (subject to investigation)
     

Resurfacing roads

Where the following roads form part of CS1, they would be resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable:

  • Culford Road
  • Northchurch Terrace
  • De Beauvoir Road
     

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.
