Road safety on Amhurst Road, Rectory Road and Shacklewell Lane

Improving road safety is a high priority for Hackney Council. As many local residents will know, the junction of Shacklwell Lane, Amhurst Road and Rectory Road is very dangerous - over the last three years there have been 9 accidents at the junction.

The Council consulted with residents over introducing a road safety scheme, which will:
  • Upgrade the signals at the junction and introduce a green man crossing
  • Remove the large island in the middle of the junction and build out the kerbs - enabling pedestrians to cross in on go
  • New paving around the junction
  • New pedestrian islands on Amhurst Road
Transport for London manage traffic signals and they will be installing them at the junction in April 2010. The other parts of the scheme will be done by the Council and work is exected to start next month.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the scheme.
