Question

I was pleased to finally receive the feasibility report on the Stoke Newington Gyratory but was disappointed that the authors did not further explore the alternate possibility of providing a contra-flow cycling facility along Stoke Newington High Street. The current layout of the gyratory doesn't allow cyclists to follow the most direct Southerly route and, as a result, many of them illegally cycle against the one-way flow not only putting themselves but also other road users in danger. Will you be investigating the possibility of providing a two-way cycling lane?

Although TfL has not considered the facility you describe, they do intend to continue to identify opportunities to improve conditions in Stoke Newington for cyclists and pedestrians. TfL would do so in discussion with stakeholders locally. I will ask TfL to talk to you further with regard to this issue.
