Overview

We are proposing improvements to the pedestrian and cycling facilities with A107 Clapton Common junctions with Craven Walk and Portland Avenue.

A107 Clapton Common

We would like to improve the way cyclists and pedestrians cross. We are proposing to relocate the pedestrian crossing south of Portland Avenue and install a new parallel pedestrian and cycle crossing at the junction Clapton Common junctions with Craven Walk and Portland Avenue. This new crossing for pedestrians and cyclists would make crossing easier for all users.

Craven Walk would become one-way only (northbound) between the A107 Clapton Common Road and Belz Terrace, except for cycles.

We also propose to remove a section of the bus lane at bus stop (CU) south of Portland Avenue on the A107 and convert this into a wider pedestrian footway to create better visibility.

Improved Vehicular Access

We propose to improve vehicular access on Castlewood Road, Ravensdale Road and Lingwood Road. To achieve this we would need to remove a small section of parking on either side of the carriageway. We would implement single yellow line parking restrictions, to create better visibility and accommodate turning movements.

We also propose to implement the parking restriction times from 8.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday.

Traffic impacts

We predict no significant impact on general traffic times.

Cars previously turning out of Craven Walk onto A107 Clapton Common may have a slightly longer journey, although by no more than a few minutes. Bus journeys would not be impacted.
