Section 3: Paul Street (north)

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015



Section 3: Paul Street (north)

This section passes along lower-traffic roads, with cyclists using the carriageway. It includes an improved public space around the monument at Tabernacle Square, with attractive paving and seating designed in sympathy with the surroundings. Proposals include:

  • New shared space for motor traffic, pedestrians and cyclists at the junction of Tabernacle Street and Paul Street
  • Changes to parking restrictions
  • Roads along CS1 would be resurfaced to make journeys safer and more comfortable
  • Logos and signs would help wayfinding for cyclists
  • New trees planted and some non-mature trees removed

Public realm

Substantial public realm improvements north of Paul Street, with enlarged footways and new seating around existing monument


New parking restrictions on Paul Street – no stopping from Mon-Fri, 7am-9am and 4pm-7pm – would replace current resident and Pay & Display restrictions


  • 11 new trees (subject to investigation)
  • 3 non-mature trees removed; mature trees unaffected

Resurfacing roads

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

  • Paul Street
  • Tabernacle Street

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.
