Old Bethnal Green Road Liveable Streets Scheme

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets has carried out streetscape improvements to Old Bethnal Green Road as part of their match funding contribution to Cross River Partnership’s Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) Programme.

The improvements were carried out as part of the boroughs Liveable Streets Programme, and included closing part of the road to vehicular traffic, installing a new segregated cycle lane, upgrading street lighting, installing CCTV, planting new trees and adding more greenery. As a result, the scheme will help to improve road safety and air quality, something that is particularly important considering Old Bethnal Green Road’s proximity to local schools and nurseries.

Impacts of this initiative include:

          ~8,000 vehicles removed per day

          Improvements to local air quality

          Reduced congestion

          Improved road safety

          More greening and improved street aesthetics

          Increases in walking, cycling and scooting
