Hackney Council removed southbound buses from the Narrow Way recently. Having made these changes permanent, they are now proposing to redesign and improve the streets.
They propose 'removing the existing conventional road layout and replace it with a new, accessible pedestrian friendly street.
'Simplifying the street by removing the current clutter and providing new seating and cycle parking.
'Creating a new public spaces that are flexible and adaptable, and will allow for events and other activities to be hosted.'
The proposals shown here do not address difficulties people cycling have accessing the Narrow Way from the south.
