  • loose surface on busway path

    Richard G // 1 thread

    There is a lot of non-slip surface, that red colour stuff, that has rubbed off and collected just on the bend as the path goes under the bridge, as you leave the P&R

    Last week, I came past just as someone was being helped back up again, after their bike slipped on the loose surface.. It feels quite treacherous as you cycle over it.

    I cant see anywhere, who to contact about removing all the loose material.

    Anyone know a good point of contact to report to?

    thanks, Richard

  • East Sydenham Healthy Neighbourhood

    East Sydenham is changing

    A key target of both the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Lewisham’s Transport Strategy is for 80% of all journeys in London to be made by sustainable means of transport (walking, cycling and public transport) by 2041. To achieve this, we have to create street environments where traffic is reduced, and where vulnerable road users, including children and the elderly, feel more comfortable making journeys on foot or by bike. 

    What are the issues are most important for us to address? 

    How would you like to change East Sydenham to make your area healthier, greener and more pleasant to live in?

  • King St - cycle route sorely needed

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    King St/Ellon Road is a main artery into Aberdeen.  We are advised that the traffic volumes due tot he AWPR have reduced and in order to lock in this benefit there need to be some urgency to utilise freed up road space to more sustainable forms of transport. 

    And no - the parallel NCR1 isn't suitable.  It's hilly with cobbles and have weird diverts.  as a tourist route through the university and Old Aberdeen, its fine.

  • Blackdog - distributor road pavement not cycleway

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    This is a 40mph distributor road which is currently fairly quiet.  But many houses are planned in this location.  It would have been helpful if the pavement has been built a bit wider and designated as a shared path/cycleway.  Even better would be an actual cycleway but we can press for that with the development.

  • Blackdog roundabout - not offically cycleway

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    The pavement around the Blackdog roundabout is the logical route for cyclist to transit from Blackdog towards Potterton and until the Blackdog-Murcar cycleway is built, those brave enough to venture onto the dual carriageway will use the pavements to get onto and off more suitable roads

    It would be helpful if the designation would change and the surface revisited. Pity is wasn't built wider to shared path standards.

  • Hounslow Opportunity Areas

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    The London Borough of Hounslow is consulting on the Local Plan Reviews for the Great West Corridor and West of Borough opportunity areas.  The Local Plans set out planning guidelines for major developments in the respective areas.  Each Plan includes a section on "Connecting People and Places" that covers transport aspects of developments.

    Steve Curran, the Leader of Hounslow Council, refers to the negative impacts of major roads crossing the Great West Corridor area in his foreword.  "Attractive alternatives to the private car" described in pp74-83 of the consultation document include improved walking and cycling infrastructure.  Proposals for two new rail links will be rather more expensive.

    Councillor Curran expresses concern about the environmental impact of a Third Runway at Heathrow Airport on the West of Borough area but also points out the regeneration opportunities.  "Attractive alternatives to the private car" described in pp78-85 of the consultation document include improved cycling and walking infrastructure.

  • A14 Roundabout J32 Works

    Created by Joe Adam // 1 thread

    The A14 works have closed the east side pavement/cyclepath for some amount of time.

    This either forces people to cross the rode via 4 toucan crossings (and cycle or walk up a very narrow stretch) which is technically not a cycle path I believe.  Alternatively people have to cycle on road across a busy 2 lane 60mph limit roundabout.
