  • Hendon Central - Heathy Streets

    Created by JonC // 2 threads

    TfL and boroughs are also working with local communities in each area to give the high streets local branding and identity. This includes welcome signage, wayfinding to local points of interest such as markets and artwork championing subjects of local significance.

    The first six locations to receive Healthy High Streets funding include:

    • Hendon Central (Barnet) - New decorative 'Welcome to Hendon' signage will be installed along with additional cycling parking, new trees and refreshed planters around Hendon Central Tube station

  • Could Ancaster Road become a bus gate?

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    Could Ancaster Road become a bus gate allowing walking, cycling, buses, and taxis only to encourage active travel and public transport use over the private cars for short journeys to the station and town. This would help to make Birkfield Drive quieter for walking and cycling, as the hill currently makes it a particularly poor experience for cycling up.

    This is a more radical idea, however is the sort of thing that's required for resolving the climate emergency and encouraging active travel. This sort of thing is very common in places like The Netherlands.

  • Hounslow Climate Emergency Action Plan

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    London Borough of Hounslow says that "In June 2019, Hounslow Council declared a climate emergency. In recognition of the urgent threat posed by climate change, we have committed to reducing council emissions to net zero by 2030, as well as working with residents and businesses to help reduce their own carbon emissions.[...]  The draft Action Plan outlines seven key programmes for reducing Council direct carbon emissions, and in acknowledging the Council’s community leadership role, we have developed a further six programmes to address borough-wide emissions."

    The document setting out the proposed Action Plan is long and somewhat long-winded, as is the way of these things.  The seven internal programmes and six external ones are outlined in easy-to-read graphics on pp40-41 and pp51-52 respectively.

  • Told to use the road by PCSO

    Created by Patrick Pawsey-Vale // 1 thread

    I was cycling along the two-way cycle path, segregated, next to the road on Donnington Bridge in Oxford, on my cargo bike, with the two kids in the front carrier.

    This was Monday 27/01/20.

    It was raining like mad, so it took me a moment to realise the cyclist coming the other way who was waving their finger at me and saying 'You should be on the road, sir' was a Police Community Support Officer.

    It's confused and disturbed me - as I don't believe there is any access restriction to the two-way cycle path, my bike is no wider than any other dutch bike (it's no wider than its handlebars) and I certainly don't want to be forced onto a very nasty stretch of road on one of the key river crossings of Oxford with my baby and 4 year old on board.

  • Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich Phase 3

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich                                         

    Recent projects and engagement with residents in the Dulwich area have shown a common theme - there's too much traffic in the area - and this is having an adverse effect on local life.

    We want to work with residents to address these concerns about traffic volume and its impact on the community.

    • streets in the Dulwich Village area carry much higher than the average traffic on similar residential streets in the borough
    • in the peak hours some residential streets are carrying more traffic than major A-roads.
    • the peak hours are between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 8pm. This unusual traffic pattern shows that traffic using the area includes significant volumes of commuter traffic
    • the pollution profile shows that air pollution is worse between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm
    • there are very high numbers of pupils crossing the roads during the peak hours
    • over 7000 through journeys are made in the area in a typical day. They enter and exit the neighbourhood within less than 10 to 15 minutes

    Phase 3

  • A202 Peckham HighStreet

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We would like to know your views on our proposals along the A202 (Peckham High Street) between the junctions with Basing Court and Mission Place. The proposals aim to address identified safety issues, while providing a safer and more pleasant environment for those walking, cycling and using public transport in the area.  

    Tragically, along Peckham High Street there have been three fatal collisions since 2015, most recently in January 2020. TfL is seeking to eradicate deaths and serious injuries from our roads, in line with the Mayor’s Vision Zero policy for London. We believe that when people leave their homes each day, they should feel safe and confident about the journey ahead. By taking the following steps along Peckham High Street, we hope to create a safer road layout for everyone travelling in Peckham.   

    Our proposals also form part of the Mayor’s plan for Healthy Streets, a long-term vision to enable more people to walk, cycle and use public transport by making London’s streets healthier, safer and more welcoming.

  • 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.
