Junction of Shoreditch High Street with Rivington Street and Calvert Avenue:

The following measures would make it safer and more comfortable for cyclists to travel east-west through this staggered junction across Shoreditch High Street:

We would introduce a right-turn ban for all traffic except cycles exiting Rivington Street into Shoreditch High Street. This would improve safety for cyclists waiting to turn into Rivington Street and pedestrians using the nearby pedestrian crossing. Our latest traffic counts show a maximum of 33 vehicles per hour making this right turn, and we are satisfied alternative routes exist
We would remove a southbound general traffic lane on Shoreditch High Street to accommodate two new right-turn pockets and three new traffic islands. The traffic islands would protect road users waiting to turn right into either Rivington Street (cycles only) or Calvert Avenue (all traffic)
We would reduce the size of the footway by a small amount on the northern corner of Shoreditch High Street and Calvert Avenue to accommodate the turning movements of larger vehicles once the new traffic islands are in place
Junction of Shoreditch High Street and Hackney Road:

We would enlarge the traffic island to the west of the southbound slip road, reducing the carriageway width and the number of southbound lanes from two to one. This would create more footway space for pedestrians and reduce the distance people have to cross. Making this section of road a single lane for motor traffic would also create space for an advisory southbound cycle lane and reduce the likelihood of conflict between cyclists and motor traffic
Shoreditch High Street:

We would install a new southbound bus lane (operational Monday to Saturday, 7am to 7pm) in place of a general traffic lane from south of Rivington Street to the pedestrian crossing opposite New Inn Yard. This bus lane would also be available to cycles, taxis, motorcycles and coaches. The loading bay outside the Ace Hotel, and the existing bus stand and bus stops on Shoreditch High Street would not be affected by the bus lane
