Confusing and dangerous bike intersection

Reported via desktop in the Non-Parking related road markings category anonymously at 14:37, Thursday 13 June 2024

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6104177.

The bike intersection on the corner of Nevill and Allen road was recently updated but remains dangerous and confusing. There are no signs telling bikes to give way, the "pavement" is at the same height and colour of bricks as the road (confusing for kids).

  • Thank you for your report regarding the Butterfield Green Scheme.

    Hackney Council has an on-going commitment to improve the street environment of the borough and the Mayor has invested significant sums in making traffic management improvements across Hackney. This has led to major improvements in the condition of our street lighting, roads and footways and these, and other measures, continue to provide substantial improvements for the benefits of residents and visitors alike. As part of this commitment, we are continually seeking ways to improve road safety across the borough.

    The Butterfield Green scheme aims to increase visibility and awareness between pedestrians and cyclists and the new layout aims to slow cyclists down and create a pedestrian friendly environment.

    At each arm of the Nevill Road and Allen Road junction including the cycle track, there are give-way road markings for vehicles including cyclists to consider other road users.

    The materials chosen for the scheme aim to create a shared area, brightening the area and creating a light texture to inform users of a change in environment where all road users should consider each other. Corduroy paving before the change in material on the footways inform visually impaired users.

    To ensure the scheme design was safe, Road Safety Audits were undertaken both before and after the scheme implementation ensuring a fit-for-purpose design.

    As the scheme is fairly new, it will take some time for road users to familiarise themselves with the new layout.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you.
