tonight we had another discussion round on the proposed Liveable Streets changes to our area.
Making the roads around the estate triangle one-way will reduce traffic and the pedestrianisation around the shops will make it safer for pedestrians to cross the Bonner Road and also crossing Bonner Street over Old Ford Road gets easier as the round-about gets removed.
Most through-traffic gets channelled through Old Ford Road, Mile End Road towards the East and North of London.
Hopefully no change to the bus stop on Bonner Road will result as many residents rely on that bus stop to get to a super market because we do not have one in walking distance. Pupils from St. Elizabeth also rely on the bus to bring them.
Once the Chest Hospital gets developed even more people will use the bus. Traffic calmin through Sewardstone Road will calm the area and also improve air quality, especailly also for the school children attending Gatehouse school.
We did get paper consultations posted through our letter boxes but the consultation is which is now live online
