Improving transport in our towns and cities
Improving streets during the Covid-19 pandemic
Hackney Council are focusing road improvement efforts on seven sites where residents are experiencing difficulties with social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic. In these areas, footpaths will be widened with barriers and parking will be suspended to help people walk and shop safely.
The council is also temporarily restricting parking on Broadway Market and closing it to through-traffic, to improve pedestrian safety in this high footfall area. The measures will make it easier for residents to maintain social distancing while walking for daily exercise or obtaining essential items, such as food and medicine. At each of the sites, the Council will ensure that deliveries to food retailers can continue as required.
