Section 19: Broadwater Road - White Hart Lane

Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 19: Broadwater Road - White Hart Lane

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

  • Two bus stops moved, with bus stop LE no longer served by route 318
  • Three new banned turns for motor traffic would improve safety for cycling
  • Where CS1 crosses Lordship Lane, the junctions would be redesigned to make cycling journeys safer
  • Three pedestrian crossings improved, with two new sets of traffic islands and a relocated zebra crossing
  • 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
  • Signs would mark the start and end of CS1 near White Hart Lane football ground

Bus stops moved

  • Bus stop LE would be moved to Bruce Grove to create space in the road for new traffic islands designed to protect cyclists turning across Lordship Lane. Route 318 would no longer serve this stop because it runs along Lordship Lane and The Roundway. Passengers using route 318 would use stops Y (Lordship Lane) or RT (The Roundway)
  • Bus stop M on east side of Bruce Grove would be moved 40 metres south
     

Banned turns for motor traffic

  • No entry (except cycles) from Lordship Lane into Church Lane, removing potential danger to cyclists from turning motor vehicles
  • New banned right turns for motor traffic from Church Lane and Broadwater Road into Lordship Lane, removing potential danger to cyclists from turning motor vehicles
  • Traffic counts show the maximum vehicles per hour (excluding cyclists) using the proposed banned turns as follows:
    • Right turn from Church Lane into Lordship Lane: 41
    • Right turn from Lordship Lane into Church Lane: 18
    • Left turn from Lordship Lane into Church Lane: 12
    • Right turn from Broadwater Road into Lordship Lane: 90
       

Safer junctions

Lordship Lane junctions redesigned to make cycling safer. Two new sets of traffic islands on Lordship Lane between Church Lane and Broadwater Road would create safe waiting areas for cyclists crossing the main road
 

Pedestrian crossings

  • New traffic islands on Lordship Lane where it meets The Roundway and Bruce Grove, making pedestrian crossings safer
  • Zebra crossing on Lordship Lane moved 10 metres west to make pedestrians more visible to motor traffic exiting the roundabout
     

Decluttering roads

  • Barrier under railway bridge on Church Lane replaced with removable bollards to make cycling journeys easier
  • Guardrail removed from pedestrian crossing on Church Lane, north of All Hallows Road
     

Resurfacing roads

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

  • Church Road
  • Church Lane
  • Lordship Lane
  • Broadwater 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.
