Mansell Street walking and cycling changes

We have introduced a new cycle lane along Mansell Street as part of an experimental traffic scheme. The new cycle lane provides a link between Cycleway 2 on Whitechapel High Street and Cycleway 3 on Royal Mint Street.

We want to know your views and experiences of the experiment. We are holding a six-month consultation on the Mansell Street experimental scheme. You can reply by following the link to the survey below. We want this consultation to be accessible to everyone.

There is an Easy Read version of our materials in the ‘Documents’ section.

The purpose of this scheme

Enabling walking and cycling

We are working with London’s local authorities to provide more cycling infrastructure and improved spaces for people walking. We’re doing this because we want to encourage everyone who can to walk and cycle whenever possible. ‘Active travel’ has huge health and well-being benefits, and if more people walked, cycled or used public transport in London, there would be less congestion and our air would be cleaner. Schemes like this one will help support London’s growth and ongoing recovery from the coronavirus.

Mansell Street is a key strategic cycling corridor and is in the top 5% for current and future cycling demand in London. Creating a safer cycling corridor here will provide a link between Cycleway 2 on Whitechapel High Street and Cycleway 3 on Royal Mint Street and is likely to increase cycling demand.

Keeping people safe

In the three years up to July 2020 four people were seriously injured in collisions on or near Mansell Street, and one person tragically was killed.
