LTNs: Modal filters

Modal filters (or 'point closures') are measures to restrict through-traffic. These facilitate safer streets for cycling and walking, as well as improving residential amenity.

Various types are shown:

  • Bollards/gates within a street, that prevent through-traffic but allow walking and cycling;
  • Gaps within a street that form a short section of cycleway/walkway, similarly preventing through-traffic;
  • Streets abutting main roads but with only a cycleway/pavement between them;
  • No entry except cycles filters;
  • Bus gates, which allow bus and cycle access to particular areas;

The data shown here is the result of automated analysis of OpenStreetMap data.

This data should be considered beta level. We continue to refine the analysis to remove false-positives and to add additional types.

A maximum of 2,000 results are returned within the supplied bounding box.

Converage is currently the UK and Ireland.
