  • Crouch Street West contraflow spur used as further parking

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The, albeit contrived, design expects cyclists travelling East (from or across Rawstorn Rd.) into Crouch Street to use this spur to cross to the opposite ("shared use") pavement to avoid the angled parking along the North side of the street.  Unsurprisingly, the spur isn't well used, while the short stay spaces are often full, so the spur is regularly used for parking.

  • No Entry at Clay Farm Centre

    Created by Eleanor Blair // 1 thread

    Bus gate at Clay Farm Centre is marked with a "no entry except buses" sign - this route it used by many bikes, and should probably be changed. I'd rather not go through no-entry signs, but I do at the moment as it's the only sensible route by bike from Trumpington Park Primary to Lime Avenue.

  • Harrow 'Northern' Cycle Route

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council is proposing to build a 'Northern Cycle Route', mostly a signed route with minimal intervention and no changes to the road space allocated to motor vehicles. Some of the route follows existing advisory cycle lanes or signed-only routes along busy roads that do not meet cycle design standards. There are a few isolated improvements - small sections of segregated path on verges to connect service roads or other minor roads, and some new parallel zebras, but even these are poorly designed and take cyclists well away from the crossing desire lines.

  • Wealdstone Town Centre Redevelopment

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council is proposing to reroute buses in Wealdstone town centre in order to improve bus reliability. They are also proposing expensive re-modelling of junctions and repaving of the high street, but without any changes to the car circulation plan or new cycle routes.

    There will be a short section of cycle path along a short section of the high street (part of the TfL Quietway), but another section of the high street is becoming one-way with no cycling contraflow. Cycle desire lines to and from the station or Harrow Leisure centre are not catered for at all. Many of the pedestrian desire lines lack formal crossings.

    There are no measures to reduce car traffic or restrict cars from certain roads, beyond the restrictions that exist already. Overall this scheme will do little to increase walking or cycling in Wealdstone.

  • Access for people cycling to Milton Road Primary School

    Created by Sarah Hughes // 1 thread

    I'm concerned that the current entryway design and policy on entering the school grounds at Milton Road Primary School is dangerous for people cycling (many of whom are children). I would like to suggest an improved entryway design and policy on entering the school grounds to the school for their consideration. Is there anyone with experience in this area who could advise? Or anyone who'd like to join me in making the submission?

  • Bene't Street closed for sewer repair

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    Bene't street will be closed for four weeks (until early/mid Feb 2020) so that Anglian Water can work to repair a collapsed sewer in Cambridge. A diversion for cars will in place. The footpath is open to people walking and pushing their cycles. The diversion for the cars means that Corn Exchange street is two-way for cars and this has implications for people cycling on the contraflow lanes.

  • Gritting and slipping

    Created by Cllr Ian Manning // 1 thread

    I'm investigating multiple reports of accidents with experienced cyclists suddenly slipping off their bikes and would appreciate knowing about anyone this has happened to recently.  The common characteristics are:

    Experienced cyclists.

    No frost/ice on road.

    Sudden loss of control of bike, wheels slipping out.

    Visible residue on the road.

    Injury serious enough to go to A&E.

  • A19 Southbound at Germany Beck pinch point

    Created by Mick Allan // 1 thread

    Cyclists travelling southwards on the approach to Germany Beck Spine rd are seriously pinched by traffic. Drivers have always sped up here as they near the 40mph zone with the promise of the ring road beyond. With the recent addition of traffic lights at this point they are even more inclined to speed up for fear of being delayed by a changing traffic light. There's a nominal slip road for traffic making a left turn (towards Fordlands and GB estate) and the lane narrows like a funnel at this point. To make matters worse the mild sweep to the right and a slight change in slope on the approach to this point makes it very difficult to see that the road gets narrower. There's also a drain cover precisely on the apex of the pinch point which requires bicyclists to make a choice - ride over the drain cover or pull out to go around it. Riders who adopt a strong primary position going through this junction, but those who ride in the gutter will get squeezed. And there's certainly not enough space for a car to make a safe pass of a cyclist here. The idea of riding through here with a truck or a bus on my arse fills me with dread. It's an accident waiting to happen.
