    East Sydenham is changing

    A key target of both the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Lewisham’s Transport Strategy is for 80% of all journeys in London to be made by sustainable means of transport (walking, cycling and public transport) by 2041. To achieve this, we have to create street environments where traffic is reduced, and where vulnerable road users, including children and the elderly, feel more comfortable making journeys on foot or by bike. 

    What are the issues are most important for us to address?

    How would you like to change Lewisham & Lee Green to make the area healthier, greener and more pleasant to live in?

    The Healthy Neighbourhoods Programme will help make Lewisham’s diverse communities greener, healthier and more attractive places to live, work, play and do business. By restricting the through traffic that uses residential streets to avoid main roads, we will reduce congestion in your neighbourhood, improve air quality and make the local area more pleasant to walk and cycle through.

    During the first stage of the programme, local residents will be able to access local traffic data, share their views on traffic issues and help identify schemes to address them, on this website and at a series of public events and workshops.

    During the second stage, proposed traffic management measures will be trialled for 6-18 months, so that we can monitor their impact, gather local opinion and assess whether to make any changes permanent

  • Markhouse area

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    From the council site:

    The Enjoy Waltham Forest programme is about making our streets work for everyone, and our borough a better place to live, work and travel around.

    The Markhouse Area is one of the residential areas we are investing in and it is the final residential scheme identified in our original funding bid to Transport for London. The Markhouse Area scheme aims to build on the changes already introduced in some of the neighbouring areas, including Walthamstow Village, Hoe Street-Wood Street Area and Leyton Town Centre, and will complement the improvements currently taking place along Lea Bridge Road and at Walthamstow Central.

    Summary of proposals

    The Markhouse Area scheme is framed by Hoe Street, Selbourne Road, Markhouse Road and Lea Bridge Road. The area consists of almost 5,000 households and businesses, and includes six schools, a children’s centre and learning centre, which are attended by more than 4,500 pupils.

    A key feature of the scheme involves returning the streets to local people by discouraging non-local traffic from cutting through the area, making the streets safer, quieter and more enjoyable for everyone. The scheme will help create a better environment for walking and cycling, will support the local economy by making the shopping experience more pleasant, and aims to improve the overall look and feel of the area with more greenery and planting, which the community can take pride and ownership of.

    The Markhouse Area scheme aims to:
    Reduce the non-local traffic
    Improve the look, feel and safety of the streets for everyone
    Improve routes to and from local schools, shops and places of interest
    Encourage people to use sustainable, active and healthy modes of transport.
    The proposals combine a mixture of timed and permanent road closures, traffic direction changes, safety improvements and environment enhancements. To ensure the proposed improvements are effective, some of them have been combined into Series of proposals. This is because the proposed improvements in each Series are reliant on each other to be effective and need to be delivered together.

  • Strafford Road Consultation

    Created by timlennon // 1 thread

    Changes to make school crossing better.
    "Concerns have been raised through the St Mary’s Church of England School Travel Plan regarding the lack of a safe place to cross the road outside of the middle site for the school.

    Officers assessed conditions at the end of school time and found that parents and pupils currently cross in random locations and often between parked cars where sightlines are reduced. Concerns were also raised regarding vehicles travelling at inappropriate speeds."
