Road traffic schemes and consultations


Traffic and highway improvement schemes are usually designed and installed as the result of an accident or problem, in response to requests from residents or as part of a national policy (for example, the introduction of 20mph zones).

Below is a list of current road traffic schemes and consultations in Waltham Forest.

The Council has successfully secured funding from Transport for London (TfL) to review and improve safety for all road users in Sewardstone Road and Mansfield Hill. Between 2013 and 2016, a total of 55 Road Traffic Collisions were recorded along the road, resulting in 64 casualties.
