A new enforcement camera has been installed on Hoxton's Cremer Street to stop through-traffic using the road.
The filter has been introduced near Hoxton Overground Station, which experiences high levels of footfall.
Hackney Mayor Philip Glanville said: “We know there are high levels of non-local traffic on Cremer Street, which makes it unsafe for residents using the tight, narrow pavements - especially those who live nearby in Fellows Court - and for people using Hoxton Overground Station.
“This new trial filter will support people to walk and cycle locally."
The Cremer Street filter forms part of the council's plans to rebuild a greener Hackney in the wake of the pandemic.
