  • Nasty pothole #1 on Hadley Road

    Created by Paul D.Smith // 1 thread

    Actually two nasty potholes on the westbound carriageway (towards Hadley Wood).  18in-24in across but deep with sharp sides.  Hit one of these last week and got instant puncture.

  • Proposed A10/Lincoln Road Walking and Cycling Improvements

    Hamish F // 1 thread

    From the consultation hub, verbatim:

    These proposals are part of a wider TfL programme to encourage people to choose to cycle or walk in Enfield, which is being implemented by Enfield Council in partnership with us. We would like to hear your views on the proposals.

    What are we proposing?

    We propose to upgrade the existing staggered pedestrian crossing on the northern arm of the junction between Lincoln Road and the A10. The crossing would be made wider and would become a toucan crossing, enabling cyclists to use it as well. The existing zebra crossing on the western arm of Lincoln Road would become a parallel cycle/zebra crossing.

    Some areas of footway would be widened to enable people to access to both crossings more easily. The changes to the footway would mean that the entrance to the residential access road which joins Lincoln Road at the junction with the A10 would become narrower, and exiting vehicles would be asked to give way to any vehicles wishing to enter.

    See the website link for details including drawings and to submit comments.

    Enfield Cycling Campaign intends to submit a considered response after discussion.

  • Segregated cycle path on approach to North Circular

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    The A105 southbound has segregated cycle lanes and then a bus lane until the bus lane ends just short of the North Circular. The bus lane ending creates a vicious pinch point for cyclists with a metal barrier on the left and cars pushing into the lane from the right to avoid the queue of vehicles turning right into the North Circular.

    As the pavement on the left is very wide, there is enough space to paint a short stretch of bicycle lane onto the pavement, starting where the bus lane ends (so as to not interfere with the bus stop) and ending at Regents Avenue where the road is wide enough and one can continue into the bicycle box at the North Circular junction.

    • the future role of our town centres
    • creating places that promote health and wellbeing

  • Run of potholes

    Created by Paul D.Smith // 1 thread

    2019/01/20 - Fixed and nicely flat now.

    Western direction, about parallel with the obelisk in Trent Park is a series of three deepish long potholes close to the gutter.  Be careful because if your tyre catches the edge of one of these, you'll be weaving around.  Best to avoid them and steer wide so you don't find yourself weaving as a car close passes.

  • Barnet LIP

    Created by Simon Still // 2 threads

    The third Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) was published in March 2018 and sets out a new strategic direction for transport in London. It aims to change the way people choose to travel with an overarching vision for 80% of all trips in London to be made on foot, cycle or using public transport by 2041.

    Each London Borough has to prepare a Local Implementation Plan (LIP) containing proposals for the implementation of the MTS in its area.

    Barnet’s draft LIP includes Barnet’s transport objectives and identifies key local issues, challenges and opportunities to achieving the overarching mode share aim and nine MTS outcomes. It includes a delivery plan that sets out, in broad terms, the proposals and resources that will deliver the LIP objectives and targets associated with indicators related to the MTS outcomes.

    A number of statutory consultees will be specifically invited to comment on the draft LIP, but we want everyone who lives in or visits the borough to have an opportunity to comment too.

    Give us your views

    A copy of the draft LIP is provided here. We would particularly like your views on:

    have the main challenges and opportunities to delivering the MTS vision and outcomes been identified (pages 24-60);
    are the borough transport objectives identified in the document (pages 26-29) suitable for addressing the challenges;
    should the LIP include other major proposals or general areas of work (pages 62-74 & 80-81);
    should any other targets be identified (pages 103-110)
    Please provide your comments by email to traffic.consultations@barnet.gov.uk(External link) including LIP3 in the title

    ,or by post FAO Jane Shipman, Re, Floor 11, Barnet House, 1255 High Road, London, N20 0EJ.
