West Ham Lane pedestrianisation updates

A Permanent Traffic Order has been published, for the section of the carriageway at the side of the Old Town Hall (between Broadway E15 and Tramway Avenue)
11 February 2021

It follows temporary measures that have been in place along West Ham Lane since the end of the gyratory works.

No major disruptions seem to occur as this makes arrangement permanent now and install the physical measures.

The general effect of the order considers the introduction of a 24-hour pedestrian and cycle zone in a length of West Ham Lane, between its junctions with Broadway E15 and Tramway Avenue.

In effect, this section of West Ham Lane was always to be restricted for access only, meaning you can enter it, stop, park etc, but you cannot travel all the way through (except pedestrians and pedal cycles).

A consultation considering this route was held back in February 2020 that further led to the implementation of the short-stay parking bay outside of the Queens Head Public House.

The pedestrianization of this area that includes the Tramway Pocket Garden will provide some more vital space for pedestrians and cyclists further allowing activation via events and pop-ups.
