Waste service strike

The waste service strike is now over and we have restarted service from 27 September 2023.

Over the next few weeks, our waste service team and private waste contractors will catch up on missed collections and street cleaning as quickly as possible.

We thank everyone for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience

Dangerous road junctions

The council has an ongoing programme to improve the safety and efficiency of the road network in Tower Hamlets.

Most safety schemes are targeted at locations with the worst accident records over the previous three years, but many improvements come from requests made by the public.

The council aims to make any dangerous roads and junctions safe for all road users by installing where needed:

  • pedestrian crossings
  • traffic calming features to reduce traffic
  • speed and warning signs
