Views are being sought on the roll out of three schemes aimed at stopping rat runs around people's homes.
The town hall is consulting on creating low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) in zones around Forest Gate, Maryland and Stratford.
Curbs are already in place in two areas of Maryland and Forest Gate. LTNs aim to improve air quality and road safety by reducing traffic using planters, bollards or cameras to stop entry at some junctions.
Cllr James Asser, cabinet member for environment, highways and sustainable transport, said: “Making changes to traffic flows in residential areas can make a significant improvement to air quality, increase road safety by cutting the number of rat runs and improve the quality of life in residential areas by making streets safer for people.”
The new schemes will be introduced using experimental traffic orders and the first six months form part of a statutory consultation.
