Hoxton area cycle route improvements
Hackney Council are currently consulting on ‘Hoxton Area cycle route improvements’ to “improve the area for cycling and walking along the Central London cycle grid”. The biggest change is the closure of both Poole Street and Eagle Wharf Road to motor traffic:
However, from looking at the plans above it seems that no actual physical closure is to go in place at this junction, just “cycles only” painted on the entrance to both roads along with no entry signs. If so then this is a poor decision as it is bound to be ignored often by many motorists, just as Pitfield Street is.
