Tower Hamlets Council is committed to making the borough a safer place for all road users by delivering a range of street improvements in the area; intending to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transport users alike.
Residents of Beaumont Square and the surrounding area raised concerns about rat-running and the problems it causes in local streets. You may remember that the Council previously consulted residents on traffic management proposals to reduce traffic speed in the area; many of which were strongly supported and have now been implemented. A number of additional ideas were also put forward by residents which have now been considered and we would appreciate your opinion on whether they should be introduced.
One of the problems is the level of traffic trying to avoid the traffic lights at the A11 Mile End Road/White Horse Lane junction. Drivers cut through either Beaumont Square or Eastbury Terrace through to Beaumont Grove to join A11 Mile End Road junction causing safety concerns, particularly for the nursery and nuisance to local properties. In addition, Beaumont Grove suffers problems relating to parking for surrounding shops and takeaways.
