Opened 16 Feb 2015



Section 13: Heathland Road - Holmdale Terrace

This section passes mostly along lower-traffic residential roads, with cyclists using the carriageway. Proposals include:

  • Where CS1 crosses Amhurst Park, protected waiting areas and speed reduction measures would make journeys safer for all road users
  • Speed reduction and junction improvements to make journeys safer for all road users
  • Improvements to pedestrian crossings
  • New parking restrictions
  • 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
  • New cycle parking and trees

Safer junctions

  • Enlarged traffic islands on Amhurst Park provide safer passage for cycling between West Bank and Holmdale Terrace
  • Footway enlarged and new raised table at junction of Amhurst Park and Holmdale Terrace to reduce traffic speeds
  • Footway at junction of Amhurst Park and West Bank cut back to allow easier entry into cycling contra-flow
  • Footways enlarged with new raised tables at the following junctions to reduce traffic speeds and make pedestrian and cycling movements safer:
    • Dunsmore Road and West Bank
    • Dunsmore Road and Cranwich Road
    • Fairholt Road and Heathland Road

Pedestrian crossings

New traffic islands, along with new tactile paving, on Amhurst Park make pedestrian crossings safer

  • New double yellow line parking restrictions at the junction of Healthland Road and Fairholt Road
  • Double yellow line parking restrictions extended at the junction of Cranwich Road and Fairholt Road

Cycle parking

New cycle parking (including Cyclehoops) on Amhurst Park and Cranwich Road

Decluttering roads

Pedestrian guardrail removed from St Ann’s Road


11 new trees planted within footways (subject to investigation)

Resurfacing roads

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

  • Holmedale Terrace
  • Amhurst Park
  • West Bank
  • Dunsmore Road
  • Fairholt Road
  • Heathland 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.
