  • Cycling and Walking Link - Rickmansworth Station/Colne Valley Trail

    The Colne and Crane Green Infrastructure Strategy includes a proposed new walking and cycling link between Rickmansworth Station and the Colne Valley Trail at Rickmansworth Aquadrome. At its meeting on November 4th 2019, Batchworth Community Council set up a project to ensure that this new route was implemented via Rickmansworth Town Centre, in line with two of Rickmansworth Parish Councillors' strategies.

    This would involve designing the preferred route via Bury Lane, Rickmansworth and then part-funding Hertfordshire County Council to create it.

    This shows the course of the preferred route, which is open to a phased implementation as funds permit.

  • Public Realm & Road Safety Improvements on Cartwright Gardens

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Cartwright Gardens is the middle section of the road that runs south from Euston Road;  the top section being called Mabledon Place and the bottom section  Marchmont Street.

    It is well known to people who cycle (or used to do so before Midland Road opened) into Bloomsbury via the Somerstown route and cross Euston Road from Ossulston Street.

    For as long as I remember, there has been no footway on the side adjacent to the green space on the west side. And when you cycle up there, you often pass forlorn pedestrians keeping close to the fence.

  • Buxhall School/Greanleas cycleway

    Tom McKeown // 1 thread

    A new path is being added to the west side of the B1049 to connect the Greanleas estate to the Buxhall farm school.  It is too narrow for shared used.  Can we improve this?

  • Orbital route: poor road surface and no cycle lane

    Created by Ben Catt // 1 thread

    Cycle lane ends shortly after Hazel Court travelling southbound on James Street, road surface and traffic gets worse on approach to Lawrence Street junction. Feels dangerous when travelling at rush hour with lorries, construction traffic and buses passing closely.

  • Denmark Hill Bus Lane Improvements

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We would like your views and ideas on proposals to improve bus journey times along Denmark Hill.

    The bus lanes are on a hill in this section and it has been observed that cyclists can hold up buses, as the lane is currently too narrow for buses to safely overtake cyclists travelling up the hill.

    In order to improve this, we are proposing to widen some sections of the bus lane between Champion Hill and Sunray Avenue, with priority given to the uphill sections. These proposals should improve journey times for passengers using the 42, 68 and 468 bus routes. By making bus travel more reliable, this supports Transport for London's Healthy Streets indicator: 'People choose to walk, cycle and use public transport'.

    To widen the bus lane and still maintain the carriageway width for other vehicles, we plan to

    • remove the central reservation by Ruskin Park
    • remove the traffic island by Blanchedowne
    • remove the central hatching road markings

    To improve conditions for pedestrians, we plan to

    • Replace the staggered crossing by Champion Hill with a straight crossing on a raised table
    • Improve footway surface around new raised crossing by Champion Hill/ Ruskin Park
    • Provide drop kerb and tactile paving at the informal crossing by Deepdene Road

    We will also be extending the low level planting by Ruskin Park.

    Please see the plans of these proposals below.

    We would appreciate your views on these plans, and whether there are any issues that we should take note of.

A request has been submitted for changes to the juction to let cyclists enter Maldon Road from Creffield Road. It's understood that Cllr Sue Lissimore has subimtted this to the Local Highways Panel (LHP).

  • Head-on crash highlights problem with Genome (DNA) Trail

    Created by Mark Troll // 1 thread

      A friend of mine had a head-on collision with an invisible , un-lit cyclist on the DNA trail about 2 months ago.  The end of his handlebar went through his face, breaking his jaw and many facial bones, and he also had serious damage to his hip and leg.  He was in hospital for about 2 months, and was very nearly paralyzed.  As many of you know, the trail is narrow and very dark at night, when many people are coming home from the Adenbrookes campus.  I am trying to persuade the County Council to make the path wider (there is a total of 17 feet on either side) and have it lighted with overhead lighting (solar powered ones are commercially available).  Please let your County Council person know, and also please consider signing the petition at:

    https://cambridgeshire.cmis.uk.com/ccc_live/ePetitions/tabid/115/ID/38/DNA-path-improvements-needed.aspx

    I really want to reduce the chances that others will be injured on this heavily used path

  • Camden Park Road, St. Augustine’s Road and Cliff Villas walking and cycling impr

    This consultation proposes a cycling and walking link between St  Augustine’s Road and Cliff Villas, the location of Brecknock Primary School.

    They mention connection to the proposed cycle route between Camden and Tottenham Hale that Transport for London will be consulting on in 2020 which is a very valid point even if we’re not sure of its alignment.
