Tottenham Hale Gyratory, London

Project: Tottenham Hale Gyratory, London

Tottenham Hale was previously dominated by a busy gyratory. The London Borough of Haringey wanted to improve the public space and interchange facilities in the area, giving greater priority to pedestrians. Plans included changing Tottenham Hale Gyratory from a one-way to a two-way traffic system to improve walking and cycling in the area, creating a new public square and bus station outside Tottenham Hale station, and the addition of cycle lanes. The full scheme is to be completed by 2014.

To improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists in the area, the Morden powder coated steel cycle stand (also know as the M-stand / M-type cycle) were supplied to the scheme. The Morden 'M' Cycle Stand provides the user with a number of secure locking points for their bicycle, and is a popular choice for routes throughout London. Two Morden cycle stands with tapper rails were placed on each side of Morden cycle stands without tapper rails to aid disabled users. The Morden Cycle stands were painted signal grey (RAL7004) with two bands of black reflective tape placed on each side for increased visibility. Capital cast iron bollards were installed along the high road. The Bollards were painted signal grey (RAL7004) with a vinyl graphic of D.o.T Sign 956 placed on the recess of the bollard to alert cyclists and pedestrians.
