Bowes Green – Low Traffic Neighbourhood (1)

The Bowes Primary and Surrounding Streets Quieter Neighbourhood (QN) was implemented as a trial in September 2020 using experimental traffic orders. The objectives of the project were to create healthier streets within the area, significantly reduce the volume of through motor traffic and enable a longer-term increase in walking and cycling levels. The trial was funded from the first tranche of the Department for Transport Emergency Active Travel Fund, an initiative that was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Modal filters are at the following locations:

  • Maidstone Road at its junction with Warwick Road
  • York Road at its junction with Brownlow Road
  • Palmerston Road northbound at its junction with the A406 North Circular Road
  • Existing width restriction on Warwick Road, near its junction with Maidstone Road, replaced with point closure for all vehicles except for emergency vehicles and service vehicles

A restriction was introduced at Palmerston Road at the junction with Kelvin Avenue via a new traffic island restricting right turns from Palmerston Road into Kelvin Avenue. A 20mph maximum speed limit was also introduced on some roads.
