Blackhorse Lane ‘Mini Holland’ corridor improvement
London Borough of Walthamstow
The highway works along the Blackhorse Lane corridor in Walthamstow form part of the London Borough of Walthamstow's ‘Mini Holland’ project. Mini Holland schemes aim to encourage more people to cycle, and to cycle more often, by improving streets and public for everyone. Part of the project includes highway improvements associated with a segregated, off-road cycle route along Blackhorse Lane.
Objectives and Challenges
Gateway TSP contributed to a Stage 3 Road Safety Audit undertaken by RKS Associates. The scheme has generated interest from local residents and road users and their comments were provided to the Audit Team. Amongst the concerns identified were vehicles pulling out from side-roads, lack of visibility at certain locations and conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists.
