Closed 29 Mar 2015

Opened 16 Feb 2015

Overview

 

Section 18: Napier Road - Broadwater Road

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

  • Junctions redesigned to reduce traffic speeds and improve safety for all road users
  • Changes to 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

Safer junctions

  • Enlarged footways and new traffic island to protect cyclists using cycling contra-flow on corner of The Avenue and Broadwater Road
  • Raised road surface to reduce traffic speeds on Sperling Road where it links to pedestrian and cyclist shared-use passageway
  • Enlarged footways and new pedestrian refuge island at junction of Napier Road and Ranelagh Road, to reduce speeds of turning traffic, increasing safety for all road users
  • Existing green road surfacing on Napier Road refreshed to improve visibility of cyclists to traffic joining CS1 from side roads
  • Improved drainage would prevent rainwater collecting on carriageway and creating a hazard for cyclists
     

Parking

  • New double yellow line parking restrictions on both sides of Sperling Road extended 10 metres north
  • 4 residential parking bays would be replaced by double yellow line parking restrictions on the southern side of the junction of Napier Road and Ranelagh Road to provide space for a new build-out to reduce traffic speeds
  • New double yellow line parking restrictions around the junction of Broadwater Road and The Avenue to prevent vehicles blocking cycling contra-flow
     

Resurfacing roads

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

  • Broadwater Road
  • Sperling Road
  • Napier 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.
