A six week consultation on the Stratford town centre improvements has closed.

Several events took place at Stratford, Forest Gate and Plaistow libraries to discuss the council’s plans to improve the town centre.

This includes two-way traffic, improved bus services and providing better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

These plans aim to encourage more people to visit the Broadway, High Street and Cultural Quarter and support local businesses and cultural venues.

If the plans are given the all clear, the council will be working with Transport for London to make changes to the one-way traffic system, which will allow for a better flow of traffic and reduce the number of accidents in the area.

They also hope to create separate cycle tracks to encourage more cycling through Stratford and widen the pedestrian crossing at Meridian Square.

If approved, construction will start in the summer of 2017 with the aim to be completed by spring 2019.
