Section 5 – Sugar House Lane to Bow roundabout

Closed 11 Feb 2013

Opened 7 Jan 2013



Sugar House Lane to Bow roundabout (westbound)


  • Two metre wide segregated cycle lane
  • Speed table at Hunt’s Lane

Westbound on Stratford High Street from the point opposite Marshgate lane would be a segregated two metre cycle lane with blue coloured surfacing.  The surfacing, along with cycle logos, would be placed across the entrance to Hunt’s Lane to ensure continuity and keep motorists aware of the cycle provision. There would also be a speed table on Hunt’s Lane to reduce motorists’ speeds when entering or exiting this side road.

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


Bow roundabout to Sugar House Lane (eastbound)


  • Two metre wide mandatory cycle lane plus cycle logos at side road entrances
  • Cycle Advance Stop Line (ASL) relocated closer to junction
  • Retain shared use footway for pedestrians and cyclists used during the Olympics to provide a link to the Greenway and River Lea Towpath
  • New cycle track at Bow Roundabout at the junction of High Street

There would be a two metre mandatory cycle lane with coloured blue surfacing along Stratford High Street eastbound. Cycle logos would also be provided across the entrances to side roads to alert motorists of the route.

The ASL and stop line at Marshgate Lane would be moved closer to the junction. A lay-by for the bus stop would be created through a minor footway reduction.  The bus stop would be offset from the road allowing space for cyclists to pass without entering the general traffic lane.

This section would retain the pedestrian and cyclist shared use footway introduced during the Olympics to link the existing cycling routes along the Greenway and River Lea Towpath. This would allow cyclists (predominantly leisure cyclists and those crossing Stratford High Street) to travel westbound from the Greenway without having to negotiate Bow Roundabout.

There would be a new cycle track on the northside of Bow roundabout at the junction with Stratford High Street.

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