Major transport project: Stratford Town Centre

The transformation of Stratford town centre to introduce two-way traffic on Great Eastern Road, The Grove and Broadway has mostly been completed. 

 The key changes you can see in the town centre are:  

  • A new road layout so that vehicles can drive in both directions  
  • Separated cycle lanes so that people feel safer cycling in the town centre 
  • Upgraded footways to create more space for pedestrians 
  • Upgraded crossings and new crossings at locations where people prefer to cross 
  • New trees and planted areas to make Stratford greener 
  • New benches and seating areas with planting 
  • Introduced a 20mph speed limit around Stratford shopping centre 
  • New loading, parking and drop-off areas 
  • More cycle racks at key locations 
  • An informal play area at the Grove, near Morrisons 
  • Improved lighting in the town centre 
  • New water bottle filling stations that will be in use shortly 

We are currently reviewing the scheme to check for minor faults and make additional improvements in response to feedback from residents, businesses and key stakeholders.
