Transport and Connections

Phase 3 allows us to reinstate the historic street pattern of the area, helping people find their way around the area more easily and providing a new pedestrian friendly part of Portobello Road which can be closed for events such as markets.

New routes and
connections

A new pedestrian route through the site will be created, running from Ladbroke Grove to Wornington Road. This will also expand pedestrian access to the wider area, including Barlby Road and Treverton Street.

Shared surfaces and
traffic calming

Traffic calming measures will be used on Wornington Road. A one-way system will be used on Portobello Road and the top of Wornington Road, to improve safety for residents and to promote walking and cycling.

Shared surfaces and landscaping will be used on the northern end of Portobello Road to discourage car access and limit parking and the road may be closed occasionally for special events.

Cycling

Cycle racks will be provided on Portobello Road , as well as TfL (Santander) bicycles.

Car club

A car club on site will reduce the need for residential parking space, as well as promoting more sustainable modes of transport such as walking and cycling.
