Hoxton West – Low Traffic Neighbourhood

Hackney has introduced road closures, known as a traffic filters (planters or bollards on the road, which prevent motor vehicles from passing through), at the following locations (see attached drawings):

  • Shepherdess Walk south of the junction with Micawber Street
  • Micawber Street junction with Shepherdess Walk
  • Ebenezer Street and Nile Street junctions with Vestry Street

This will encourage walking and cycling, promote social distancing and reduce non-local through-traffic on these streets, including traffic trying to avoid queues along City Road and Old Street roundabout. Cyclists, emergency vehicles and refuse vehicles will be able to pass through the traffic filters.

If you are a resident or business in the area and you have a motor vehicle, you are still able to drive to your home or business, but this may be via a different route.

The filter at Shepherdess Walk south of the junction with Micawber Street still allow access for local buses and a priority give way system has been introduced to facilitate this.
