    Lots of interesting stuff about inclusive transport regarding trains, buses, cars, public realm, streets and yes a bit about cycling too. Quotes:

    Shared Space:

    8.11 While we consider CIHT and DPTAC’s recommendations and how to take them
    forward, we are requesting that local authorities pause any shared space schemes
    incorporating a level surface they are considering, and which are at the design stage.
    We are also temporarily suspending Local Transport Note 1/11. This pause will allow
    us to carry out research and produce updated guidance.

    Objectives regarding Cycling:

    • Update Local Transport Note 2/08, which sets out the Department’s guidance to
    local authorities on designing safe and inclusive infrastructure for cyclists, to take
    account of developments in cycling infrastructure since its publication in 2008 and
    the responses to the draft AAP consultation and publish a revised version by early
    2019;
    • By 2020, explore the feasibility of amending legislation to recognise the use of
    cycles as a mobility aid71 in order to increase the number of disabled people
    cycling.

  • Eastern Corridor road link improvements Feasibility Study

    Ian S // 1 thread

    Improvements to Eastern Road corridor that will be supported and evidenced through feasibility studies including traffic congestion and vehicle flow studies.

    We will also work with Highways England to complement any work they have planned for A27

    The work will include potential widening of the corridor, improvements to junctions including splays onto the A27, signage, public transportation.

    The outputs will comprise improved and sustainable transport choices, improved air quality, reduced noise, travel time and congestion leading to increased productivity which in turn, supports growth of the city.

  • London Rd/London Ave Junction Improvement LTP3 2017/18

    Ian S // 1 thread

    To improve the existing junction layout at London Road/London Avenue.

    This would be achieved by providing a large kerbed build-out at the southern side of London Avenue and providing ‘No Entry’ markings on the carriageway along with the arrowhead directions road markings at the junction to create a single lane exit.

  • London Road Roundabout - Pedestrian/cycl e improvements LTP3 2017/18

    Ian S // 1 thread

    To improve the layout of the existing roundabout by introducing improved pedestrian movements with future consideration for cycle facilities.

    This will consist of building out existing kerb lines and central islands. The effect of this style of roundabout is to force motorists to choose their final exit before entering the junction.

    By reducing weaving around, and increasing the predictability of the final destination, there is a reduction in potential conflict points.

  • London Rd to Peronne Rd Cycle Route LTP3 2017/18

    Ian S // 1 thread

    Old London Rd/London Rd Gyratory Junction - The Gyratory and London Rd/Northern Parade Junction are high cycle casualty sites (numbers 8 and 4 based on recent data) which lead into the Portsbridge Roundabout.

    This scheme will provide a convenient alternative route to using all three of those junctions. Install a shared cycle route in London Rd at the junction with Curtis Mead.

    This route will take cyclists around the eastern side of the gyratory on the pavement and link in with the Peronne Rd A27 bridge into Cosham.
