Hackney Road closures

Hackney Road closures

Please reverse the road closures and have a public consultation so that the local people can tell you what they want.


Why is this important?

Hackney Council have closed numerous roads across the borough without any consultation by abusing COVID powers .
The road closures have caused a major impact for the local residents and businesses, as they are unable to access their residence's and business premises. The few remaining roads are gridlocked all day and not just during rush hour.
This is also causing major pollution on the gridlocked roads and will also impact the emergency services response times

How it will be delivered

We will seek to meet the Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville
so that it can be discussed at a full Council meeting.

Reasons for signing

  • Dividing Hackney because whilst amazing for some, totally destructive for others.
  • Road closures are INCREASING pollution in Hackney. Walking on high streets is a toxic nightmare of holding your breath as you walk past stationary traffic as quickly as you can. This needs to stop.
  • Closing the road would disrupt traffic and bus Journey, they have no consideration for others only thinking about saving money...this can cause more accidents and people losing their lives because they see fit to close a road that has been in operation long before half of us was born....they need to give the community a voice about what should happen....
