Residents able to provide Wapping Bus Gate feedback from day one Wednesday 13th November

Wednesday 13th November sees the first day when the Wapping Bus Gate will be in operation from 05.30 to 10.30 am and from 4 – 7 pm.  If you aren’t on a bus or a bicycle during those times you will not be able to get through the gate in Wapping High Street just west of Pier Head.

Many thanks to Cllr. Andrew Wood (Conservative, Canary Wharf) for sending us the leaflet below which states that from day one of its implementation Wapping people will be able to make comments, ask questions or raise concerns.

And here is an artists impression of what Wapping High Street may look like on Wednesday morning around 8 am.

  1. I will be out in the morning with my camera to video and some popcorn… Can’t wait… Thank you Tower Hamlets – bring on the bus gate…..

  2. I fear one of the unintended consequences of this Bus Gate will be Motor cyclists / Moped delivery drivers (et al) avoiding the Bus gate at WHS by instead taking to the pavements (as the cyclists already do to avoid the WHS cobbles) at the Vaughan Way (Cherry-duck Studios) pavement link to Scandrett Street / Green Bank, i.e. the pavement next to the John Orwell Sports Centre..

    I note on Google Maps that shows as a direct link already (even though it is really a car park). TH should have contacted Google Maps to address that.

    Of course this will only happen at week days when kids are going to/from the local schools, so I am sure this will be fine..

    And Mark no doubt you will get a great view of it from the Turks Head.

    1. I have no doubt you are correct. I did mention this to the Council some time back but never got a response. I think they are going to block off Scandrett Street to vehicles and convert the area around the car park into a pop-up park or something.
