  • Nightingale Avenue cycle route

    Created by wookey // 1 thread

    Nightingale Avenue should be a major cycle route between the biomedical campus (via Red Cross Lane) and Queen Ediths in general and places beyond. It is the natural route for many people, for example between Trumpington/Shelford/Sawston and numerous schools, Cherry Hinton/Arm etc. It is already quite well-used but could be much better with some dedicated infrastructure.

  • Data from new smart traffic sensors available

    Created by Jon Warbrick // 1 thread

    Cambridgeshire Insight have just released data from a set of 'smart' traffic sensors installed to monitor the effect of the Mill Road bridge closure: https://data.cambridgeshireinsight.org.uk/story/monitoring-impact-mill-road-bridge-closure

    This data is particularly interesting because it provides classified counts of pedestrians, cyclists and various classes of motor vehicle in both directions across 15 locations in Cambridge.

  • Rotherhithe Movement Plan - Rotherhithe and Surrey Docks CPZ

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We want to hear your views on the planned controlled parking zone for the Rotherhithe and Surrey Docks area.

    Up to 3,000 new homes in  the area mean that a controlled parking zone is essential - in particular, this is the only way to enforce the permit-free planning conditions for the Canada Water development, and prevent intolerable additional parking pressures.

  • Rotherhithe Movement Plan - Rotherhithe Cycleway

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We are consulting on creating a cycleway in the Rotherhithe area.

    Future cycling demand is predicting there will be a significant desire to\from Peckham and beyond, with up to 150 cyclists using the route during the peak period, in the event of a free ferry crossing being developed.

    We have developed proposals to link Cycleway 4 and Quietway 14 as a first phase and we are exploring potential connections towards Peckham.

  • Safer Junctions - A1 Holloway Road (including Drayton Park junction)

    In the last three years, there were 61 collisions, with 71 casualties, 19 of which were people cycling and eight of which involved pedestrians. (Data available up until the end of November 2018).

    The scheme aims to address identified and perceived safety concerns at these junctions, as well as at George’s Road and the turning into the petrol filling station south of Palmer Place. The scheme will introduce new, signalised pedestrian crossings at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction, replace the zebra crossing at the junction of Liverpool Road with a signalised crossing and simplify all the existing staggered crossings to straight across crossings at the Hornsey Road/Hornsey Street junction.

    We consulted on a proposal that sought to deliver signalised pedestrian crossings at Drayton Park/Palmer Place and Liverpool Road in 2010. This was not taken ahead because of concerns raised during the consultation about the impact of the scheme on local roads arising from proposed banned turns. This consultation was also launched shortly after the recently opened Emirates stadium, the effects of which were felt to have an impact on the response to the consultation. When developing our new proposal we took this feedback into account and have now amended the scheme to address these concerns. The details can be found below.

    Our proposals

    We would like your views on the following proposals which aim to provide new signalised crossings and address identified safety concerns.

    We propose to provide new, signalised pedestrian crossings at the Holloway Road/Palmer Place/Drayton Park junction and the Holloway Road/Liverpool Road junction. The existing signalised pedestrian crossing outside the London Metropolitan University Clocktower building would move south and be brought into the new junction.

    We propose to simplify the Holloway Road/Hornsey Street/Hornsey Road junction. We would convert the existing staggered signalised pedestrian crossings to straight across crossings. We also propose to remove the small triangular pedestrian island and slip road into Hornsey Road to create more space for people walking, reduce the crossing distance and simplify traffic movements.

    To allow for the proposed crossing changes to be introduced, changes to some bus stops, loading bays and parking locations between Hornsey Street/Hornsey Road and Ronalds Road would be required.

    To provide the new crossings, we propose to make changes to some permitted turning arrangements for traffic at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place and Liverpool Road junctions. All movements through the area would still be possible in the new road layout, but it might be necessary for road users to take a different route. These changes are necessary to allow the crossings to be delivered without displacing traffic on to local roads.

    In detail:

    • From Palmer Place on to Holloway Road, we propose to reinstate the right turn and remove the left turn. Traffic approaching from Palmer Place and heading north would instead use Liverpool Road to turn left on to Holloway Road
    • From Holloway Road in to Palmer Place, the left turn would be removed and vehicles would use Liverpool Road to turn left
    • From Liverpool Road on to Holloway Road the right turn would be removed and vehicles would use Palmer Place to travel south towards Central London

    We need to remove two trees to ensure the new signals at Liverpool Road are visible to drivers. We have identified locations to plant new trees elsewhere within the scheme extents, subject to ground conditions.

    We propose to change the traffic signals at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction so that the side roads run separately to reduce the risk of conflict between road users at this junction.

    To provide the new pedestrian crossings at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction and on Liverpool Road, all the junctions in the scheme must be addressed together. This is to ensure the road network operates effectively in this area for all users.

    Traffic modelling

    Our traffic modelling data shows that the overall effect of our proposals on buses is generally neutral. The majority of bus routes will experience a change in journey time of between 0 and 30 seconds, however there are also some considerable improvements, of up to 5 minutes, expected for buses using Liverpool Road in both directions, particularly during the PM peak. There is an overall small impact on northbound general traffic, with improved journey times for southbound general traffic. These impacts result from the need to balance the network for all vehicular modes affected by the proposals.

    Bus service changes

    As a result of changes to the turning movements at the junction of Palmer Place to Holloway Road, we are also proposing to reroute the 153 bus route in a northbound direction from Palmer Place on to Liverpool Road. This is required because of the changes at the Palmer Place junction but is also expected to increase reliability and simplicity for passengers.

    Cycleway consultation

    The London Borough of Islington, in partnership with Transport for London, are also currently consulting on a new Cycleway adjacent to this scheme. The new Cycleway will connect Finsbury Park and Highbury Fields, where the improved route will help cyclists cross Holloway Road at the existing cycle crossing at Fieldway Crescent. More details are available at: www.islington.gov.uk/highburycycleway.

  • Liveable Streets Bow Trial engagement

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    Following recent engagement on the Liveable Streets programme in the Bow area, we are planning to trial some changes to the road layout. These changes are based on suggestions made by local residents and stakeholders.

    This trial will help us understand the effects these changes have on the road network and allow residents and businesses to experience the positive impact reduced traffic has on the local area.

    During the trial we will be running several events and activities to take advantage of the reduced number of motor vehicles passing through the Bow area, and encourage local journeys to be made by sustainable modes such as walking and cycling. Keep an eye out for more information on these.

    Please note that as a part of our preparation for the trial we have consulted with the emergency services, bus operators and Transport for London to ensure they can deliver their services using the changed road layout.

    Tower Hamlets Council is committed to making the borough a safer place for all road users by delivering a range of street improvements in the area; intending to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transport users alike.

    Influencing positive changes in road user behaviour is key in providing a safe road environment for the community and although changes in road layout can’t fully resolve this, redesign of our streets can help. Therefore, Chrisp Street and the surrounding areas are currently being invested in with aims to improve road safety for the local community.

    Please give us your feedback by filling in the survey (below the map). You may also like to add a comment to our interactive map of the wider area.

  • Beaumont Square Consultation

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    Tower Hamlets Council is committed to making the borough a safer place for all road users by delivering a range of street improvements in the area; intending to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transport users alike.

    Residents of Beaumont Square and the surrounding area raised concerns about rat-running and the problems it causes in local streets. You may remember that the Council previously consulted residents on traffic management proposals to reduce traffic speed in the area; many of which were strongly supported and have now been implemented. A number of additional ideas were also put forward by residents which have now been considered and we would appreciate your opinion on whether they should be introduced.

    One of the problems is the level of traffic trying to avoid the traffic lights at the A11 Mile End Road/White Horse Lane junction. Drivers cut through either Beaumont Square or Eastbury Terrace through to Beaumont Grove to join A11 Mile End Road junction causing safety concerns, particularly for the nursery and nuisance to local properties. In addition, Beaumont Grove suffers problems relating to parking for surrounding shops and takeaways.

  • St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School Street Consultation

    Compton Street (from Agdon Street to Goswell Road) and Cyrus Street - School Street Scheme

    St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School

    Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.


    What is a School Street Scheme?

    A School Street Scheme is where a road with a school temporarily closes to become a pedestrian and cycle zone during the school’s opening and closing times. By temporarily closing roads outside schools this will help to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates as well as make it easier and safer for children to get to and from school.

    What is proposed for Compton Street and Cyrus Street?

    The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Compton Street (from Agdon Street to Goswell Road) and Cyrus Street into a School Street Scheme between 8.30am to 9.15am plus 2.45pm to 3.45pm during school term time.
    Vehicles will not be able to enter the streets between these times unless they have been given an exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register for an exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends.

    Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.
