Seven Sisters Road Consultation
The Woodberry Down Development Team (Hackney Council, Berkeley Homes and supported by Transport for London) are consulting on "changes to Seven Sisters Road, from Green Lanes to the west and Amhurst Park to the east, as part of the on‑going regeneration of the area".
They have offered six 'ideas':
1) Reduce road to two lanes in either direction (one general traffic lane, one bus lane)
2) Reduce road to two lanes (one general traffic, one bus) in either direction, but widen to three lanes at junctions
3) Increase the number of pedestrian crossings
4a) Add a 'pedestrian island slip' between the two carriageways
4b) Add a wide 'pedestrian island slip' with planting and trees
5) Segregated cycle lanes
6) Widen bus lanes
Different combinations are possible. For example, 1 (change traffic lanes) would be necessary for 4 (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes). 1 (change traffic lanes), 4a (pedestrian island slip) and 5 (segregated cycle lanes) would work together, whereas 2 (change traffic lanes but keep three lanes at junction) would make pavement widening and segregated cycle lanes impossible.
Please respond by Sunday 15th February so that Natalie and Harry can draft a response representing Hackney Cycling Campaign's position.
