Whitmore Road & Hyde Road Zebra Crossings

Update (November 11th) - The works needed to put in place these improvements are now due to take place week beginning November 19th

During 2011 the roundabout at the junction of Pitfield Street, Hyde Road, Whitmore Road and Hoxton Street in De Beauvoir was removed and replaced with a priority crossroads arrangement, with new zebra crossings on Hoxton Street and Pitfield Street.

Hackney Council's monitoring since the change has indicated that pedestrian usage at the junction has increased. Public feedback on the changes has been generally positive, however the council has received requests to install additional zebra crossings on Whitmore Road and Hyde Road to assist pedestrians in crossing the junction.

Due to this feedback, the council is now proposing to build two new zebra crossings at the junction starting in November (diagram below).
