A bid has gone in to TfL to fund a Low Traffic Neighbourhood to the north of Windmill Lane – Maryland Point – Forest Lane. It straddles newham and Waltham Forest. The Newham Cyclists infrastructure team has prepared a detailed proposal which involve creating a number of (through) traffic free cells and in particular blocking the popular rat runs of Chobham Road and Odessa Rd. The scheme uses some point closures, but largely uses “gates” protected by number plate recognition cameras to remove all through traffic but allow residents to enter and exit the cells of the Low Traffic Neighbourhood.
All comments welcome. If you would like further information lease contact me. The intention is to use this proposal in ongoing discussions with Newham Council and other stakeholders.
