  • Chrisp Street Corridor

    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.

    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.

  • Hills Road from Station Road to Brooklands Ave

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    The central portion of Hills Road seems to be a kind of 'forgotten' area, with nothing more than narrow mandatory cycle lanes in miserable shape, and terrible junction design for people walking and cycling.

    If GCP is looking for an area that needs improvement, this is one that needs doing, and it is fairly central and high-profile.

  • 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.

  • Carshalton Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal & Management Plan Consu

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    Doing a quick scan of the document see some enoughing comments on segregated cycleway in high st, parking and a cycle networks.

    Unfortunately skip to the table at the end and it seems to be Medium to Long term objectives so real actions lacking. 

    see p53 Guideline SS4: The Northern Side of the High Street

    Any redevelopment should take the opportunity to create a
    segregated cycle path parallel to the High Street.

    p61
    7.29 Assisting a shift to more sustainable modes of transport would also be
    beneficial. Expanding the cycle network to create a segregated cycle way and
    increasing the pedestrian access and wayfinding for pedestrians to and from
    the High Street and Grove Park would also be welcome by-products, should a
    comprehensive redevelopment of the north side of the High Street take place.

    Guideline G9: Traffic and Transport
    The council will seek to improve the cycling network and pedestrian
    network throughout the Conservation Area as opportunities arise.

  • Consultation - Two way cycling on Twilley and Furmage Streets

    Anon // 1 thread

    Wandsworth Council has opened a consultation on two-way cycling on Furmage Street and part of Twilley Street between Garratt Lane and Kimber Road in Wandsworth.  This would allow cyclists to avaoid having to make the tricky and dangerous right turn at the end of Kimber Road.   Wandsworth Cycling Campaign has been asking for this for several years.  The scheme is now being built under an Experimental Traffic order and includes physical measures using islands and armadillos to protect cyclists and direct and slow the motorists who rat-run through these small streets.  Please use this facility if it's on your route and feed back your comments to the consultation.  At the end of the experiential period in October the comments will decide whether the scheme should be made permanent or not.  Use the consultation to let them know if you appreciate it.  Let the Council and cyclewandsworth@gmail.com know of any problems or improvements you'd like.

    The link to the consultation which includes a plan of the changes is:

  • Non existent cycle path

    Created by Rhiannon De Palma // 1 thread

    There is no cycle track/lane the whole way down Tang Hall Lane, this makes it so dangerous to cycle as cars have no boundaries. Also, the cars parked at the side of the road are also a problem, having to swerve round them with oncoming cars in the opposite direction. Not cycle safe at all.

  • Traffic management works that are bad for cyclists and pedestrians

    Created by Cllr Ian Manning // 7 threads

    I've recently moved to be the Lib Dem lead on the County Council's Highways & Infrastructure committee.

    I want to start working through in detail bad and good TM examples with officers to understand whether it's specific sets of contractors that are poor, whether they aren't compliant with the current policy and/or whether I agree with our officers about whether they are.

    For this I need a Cambridgeshire wide list of both good and bad, with locations - so it would be good to get some from Cambridge and other nearby Cycle Campaigns.

  • Coppermill area proposals

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Council says:

    In 2018, Waltham Forest Council was successful in securing initial funding from Transport for London (TfL) to develop a Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme in the Coppermill Area.

    For the past 12 months we have been engaging with residents, businesses and local accessibility groups and key stakeholders to find out what they would like to see improved. Based on this feedback we have created a set of proposals for the area. We are now starting a public consultation on our proposals and want everyone who lives or works in the area to have their say on the proposals to help shape the final improvements.

  • Twickenham to Brentford Cycleway

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    London Borough of Hounslow is consulting on proposals to improve cycle facilities between Ivy Bridge and London Road.  LBH says:

    The council has received funding from Transport for London (TfL) to improve the existing cycle route from Ivy Bridge to London Road. The route forms part of the Hounslow Priority Cycle Network (route 11) as it offers a quiet, cleaner route for cycling to and from Brentford. The proposed improvements aim to create a safer more attractive route for cyclists.

    If progressed, these proposals will form part of TfL’s Cycleways network, with the section in the London Borough of Hounslow forming part of a wider cycle route between Twickenham and Brentford. Improvements to the section of the route between Ivy Bridge and Twickenham will be consulted on by The London Borough of Richmond in due course.

  • Trafalgar Avenue junction with A2 Old Kent Road

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We are proposing to improve the junction of Trafalgar Avenue and A2 Old Kent Road.

    These changes would provide safer, better facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and bus passengers. These benefits support the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy and Vision Zero. 

    It is the Mayor’s Vision Zero ambition that no one is killed or seriously injured on London’s streets by 2041. The Vision Zero approach is based on the fundamental conviction that loss of life and serious injuries are neither acceptable nor inevitable.  

    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.

    What are we proposing? 

    The main benefits of this scheme would be:

    • Safer and easier crossing at Trafalgar Avenue using a new ‘green man’ crossing 
    • Quicker, more reliable bus trips using a new extended westbound bus lane

    To achieve this, we would need to ban the left turn into Trafalgar Avenue from A2 Old Kent Road westbound towards the Bricklayers Arms. Our traffic counts indicate up to 44 vehicles per hour could be affected.  

    Full details include:

    • Introducing a ‘green man’ crossing at Trafalgar Avenue
    • Banning  the left turn into Trafalgar Avenue from A2 Old Kent Road westbound
    • Building out the pavement to support the banned left turn and pedestrian crossing
    • Extending the westbound bus lane from the Trafalgar Avenue bus stop (WJ) to the junction stop line
    • Providing a new Advanced Stop Line to help protect cyclists on Trafalgar Avenue
    • Widening the existing Advance Stop Line on A2 Old Kent Road across two traffic lanes instead of one

  • Southwark Station

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    TfL and the London Borough of Southwark (LBS) are working together to deliver new improvements to the area bounded by Blackfriars Road, The Cut, Hatfields and Isabella Street.

    Several plans and proposals have been developed for this area in previous years, though none have been considered viable from a community or commercial perspective. Following approval to work towards a land swap agreement between TfL and LBS, we are now able to proceed with an exemplar development scheme, promoted by two public bodies who are working together to produce tangible benefits for the local area.

    Through two separate projects and planning applications, we wish to form a shared vision which will deliver new council homes, office and community space around Southwark station.

  • Barnet Cycleway between Hornsey and North Finchley

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Barnet council says...

    Overview

    You and others in your area have a unique opportunity to benefit from Transport for London (TfL) funding to improve walking and cycling routes between Hornsey and North Finchley.

    We want to hear your views on our proposals that will transform streets in the borough. The improvements will help provide a future Cycleway between Alexandra Park in The London Borough of Haringey, through quiet streets and over the North Circular into The London Borough of Barnet; ending at North Finchley High Road A1000 amongst a busy parade of shops and cafes.

    Background

    The proposals are an important part of the Mayor of London Transport Strategy and Barnet’s ambition to get more people to walk and cycle. The proposals are guided by the Healthy Streets Approach(External link) which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.

    We have commissioned Sustrans Ltd(External link) as project coordinator and delivery partner for the Barnet section of the Cycleway route from Hornsey to North Finchley.

    Over the last two years Sustrans, in partnership with the council, engaged with residents in specific areas along the route to better understand local travel choices and concerns, road traffic and the quality of local streets.

    The proposals we are consulting on aim to address these issues, ensuring that improvements help to create an environment in which traffic is both reduced and slowed, and in which air quality is improved.

    What are we seeking your views on?

    This consultation is asking for your views on the draft concept designs for the route.

    Specifically, we are seeking your views on:

    • the layout of proposed street alterations within the draft concept designs
    • any comments you may have on the overall draft route.

    For more information on our proposals please read our FAQ document.
