Cable Street junction with Cannon Street Road
Transport for London (TfL) has appointed CVU (Colas, Volkerhighways and URS) to replace the traffic lights at the junction of Cable Street with Cannon Street Road. Works will be taking place on the footway and carriageway.
TfL has recently introduced changes to the A13/Blackwall Tunnel Approach.
The change involves adding a new pedestrian crossing to connect the Aberfeldy Housing Estate to East India Dock DLR station; and the removal of the bus lane on the A13 East India Dock Road. The excuse given for this is that the new pedestrian crossing would cause additional delays to traffic on the A13, so ways were sought to mitigate any increase in traffic journey times.
Our annual cycle count taken during breakfast on Narrow Street would seem to show numbers using this route have pretty much levelled off since the step change from 2008-2009BBP (BBP: before blue paint) where 50%+ increases were seen.
