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.
To improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists in the area, Furnitubes supplied Morden powder coated steel cycle stands (also know as the M-stand / M-type cycle stand). The Morden 'M' Cycle Stand provides users with a number of secure locking points for their bicycles.
Two Morden cycle stands with tapper rails were placed on each side of Morden cycle stands without tapper rails to aid disabled users. These were painted signal grey (RAL 7004) 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 (RAL 7004) with a vinyl graphic of DfT Sign 956 placed on the recess of the bollard to alert cyclists and pedestrians.
The products were installed along the High Road and Philip Lane – one of the major roads in the area. The improvements in Tottenham have helped open up the area further to residents and local businesses.
