Walthamstow Town Centre. Hoe Street
"We’re working in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to deliver a range of improvements to make the Hoe Street and Selborne Road junction a more attractive, safer and better transport interchange for all.
"We've been working closely with TfL and Network Rail to install a new traffic bridge to replace the existing Victorian-era structure. The first stage of the bridge installation is now complete. This means that costly future maintenance work that would require total closure of the gyratory area, from the Selborne Road and Hoe Street junction to First Avenue, has been avoided. The Network Rail (former road bridge) is being converted into a public space.
We're now asking local residents, businesses and road users to help us decide on the final look and feel of the public areas the project will create.
The town centre transport improvements will improve journey times and overall reliability, increase access for pedestrians and cyclists, and create public green spaces to boost air quality.
"The illustration below shows how the improvements could look:
Hoe Street railway bridge: create a new public space with high quality surface finishes, seating, space for market stalls and kiosks, trees and planting.
Hoe Street junction with Station Approach junction: new trees and plants in level and raised beds
Hoe Street junction with First Avenue: enhanced public green space with new trees, seating and cycle parking.
Hoe Street junction with St Mary Road: new accessible green space adjacent to an upgraded walking and cycling track towards Walthamstow Village.
Plant new trees and a variety of plants to complement the existing species in the area, and improve air quality"
