The Council has launched a consultation on a proposed 20mph zone for Shoreditch. If you want to read more about the proposals click here.
As well as reducing the speed limit to 20mph, the proposals include:
- Raised crossing at Great Eastern Street and Garden Walk junction
- Raising Charlotte Road between Rivington Street and Old Street to make it a pedestrian environment in the evenings
- Planting some trees at suitable locations in Rivington Street, Garden Walk, New Inn Broadway and Charlotte Road
- Some footway widening in Rivington Street and north of New Inn Broadway to create shared surface and improve pedestrian walking experience
Some residents have already been in touch to share their concerns about the pedestrianising of streets in the evenings leading to more problems from night time drinkers. What do you think?
