Churchway - Proposed Pavement Widening And Traffic Calming Consultation

Closed 6 Aug 2010

Opened 5 Jul 2010

Results expected 30 Aug 2010


We are seeking your views on the Council’s proposals to reduce speed and improve pedestrian safety in relation to the redevelopment of former Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, at the junction of Grafton Place and Churchway.

Why your views matter

The proposals include the introduction of traffic calming in the form of a raised entry treatment on Churchway at the junction of Churchway and Grafton Place.

We are proposing some work which include to:

• Raise the road at Churchway at the junction of Grafton Place. This is to slow down traffic and improve pedestrian safety

• Construct a loading bay on Churchway outside the development for large vehicles who cannot gain access into the development site for loading and unloading.

• Widen the road slightly in order to help buses turn easily at the junction of Churchway and Grafton Place.

•The proposed measures would provide a more pleasant pedestrian environment. The widened pavements and level crossing point at Churchway junction would reduce traffic speeds and promote pedestrian priority. To assist those with visual impairments, tactile paving would be provided at crossing points in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act.

The traffic calming would also improve the environment for cyclists.

If the proposals are agreed, we hope that work will begin in October 2010. The funding for this work has been secured through contributions from development at 126-144 Euston Road.
