  • Brent LIP

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Statutory and public consultation on their draft documents is a requirement for Boroughs preparing their Local Implementation Plans. The draft London Borough of Brent Local Implementation Transport Plan (LIP3) sets out how the Borough Council proposes to implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy at a local level in Brent. The plan uses the Borough’s Long Term Transport Strategy objectives and sets out how the future of transport for Brent will be provided up to 2041. It proposes a three-year programme of investment for the period 2019/20 - 2021/22. Under the Mayor’s Transport Strategy a further three year programme will be consulted on in the future. The full draft plan is available in the document section below. We would welcome your views on the draft LIP3 using this online questionnaire.

  • Surface of Hospital Fields Road

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    The surface of Hospital Field road in the westbound direction is becoming very poor in the area where cycles travel. This is of particular concern as the worst bit is the edge of what appears to be the resurfaced conduit which is exactly where you want to cycle. This means cyclists are moving out into the road to avoid the poor surface (dangerously so in places) potentially into the path of east bound vehicles who are avoiding parked cars on the north side.

  • Ouse Bridge turning onto North Street nightmare

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Coming over Ouse Bridge and wanting to turn right onto North Street is very difficult and disconcerting for cyclists. You end up stranded in the middle of the road, with busy traffic passing on both sides, whilst waiting for a gap in the traffic in order to go right. It would be massively safer if some cycle priority lights could be added to enable cyclists to get across the junction before the traffic starts to move. These make a huge difference on the Skeldergate side of the junction.

  • Orbital path access near Hospital

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Access to and from the orbital path (in both directions) on to Wiggington Road needs improving here. Lots of NHS staff and hospital visitors and patients use this route, and many more would if it were more accessible.

  • Windmill Lane - dangerous junction

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Really dangerous junction for cyclists trying to get from Windmill Lane across Hull Road (or in reverse). Cars come into David Lloyd at speed, and don't expect to find cyclists or pedestrians crossing the road at this point.

  • Hiscox Stonebow crossing needed

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Cycle/pedestrian crossing required at this point of Stonebow (near the Hiscox building). The cycle/pedestrian route running north-south is getting busier all the time, and it is difficult to cross Stonebow here.

  • School Street for Arbury Primary School

    Created by Daniel Thomas // 1 thread

    Carlton Way gets a lot of through traffic during school run and both parent parking and commuter traffic create an unsafe environment for children going to Arbury Primary School or Pre-School.
    A School Street on the section of Carlton Way between Perse Way and Brimley Road and on Hall Farm Road between Carlton Way and Topham Way might be one way of substantially improving the situation.

  • Merton Local Plan 2020 Consultation

    Merton Council are consulting on their new Local Plan 2020, which will be used as the basis for planning decisions in the future. Planning decisions are one of the ways in which cycling policies are put into practice, so it's really important that the Local Plan incorporates strong commitments to cycling and active transport.

    Merton Cycle Campaign will use the comments and discussion here to incorporate into our response to the Merton Consultation which closes 6 January; however to give us time to incorporate your comments please submit them here by noon on Sunday 30 December.

  • S/0101/18/CC Histon - New Primary School north of Garden Walk

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Proposes new access onto Glebe Way cutting across shared-use pavement, interrupting it, putting give-way markings on the pavement and dropping the kerbs. Visibility splays are drawn to to the kerb instead of to the back of the pavement.

    Proposed pedestrian crossing further south will also place poles, obstructions and potential conflict into the narrow shared-use pavement.

    This is a real mess considering that they have plenty of space to widen the pavement and do it right.

    ...

    Erection of a 2FE (420 place) primary school and single storey 52 place pre-school nursery with associated vehicle and pedestrian access, car and cycle parking, vehicular drop off area with landscaping and playing fields, a pedestrian crossing, footpath widening and ancillary works.

  • York Street area residents' parking zone

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Cambridgeshire County Council has published proposals and consultation to introduce a residents’ parking scheme in the streets around York Street and New Street.

    This is a long-overdue scheme.

    There are a couple of issues:

    - Building support for the scheme - residents' parking proposals have a key strategic role in reducing traffic, by almost eliminating circulation by drivers speculatively looking for parking.

    - Making the case for the scheme in the face of opposition in a few streets because of a reduction in spaces where there is currently parking on both sides of the street (which means domination of the space for private motor vehicle storage).

    - At last, elimination of pavement parking and the ability to enforce any pavement overrun.

    - No cycle parking is proposed.

  • 18/1671/FUL 83 Babraham Road - four 1-BR dwellings next to Audi dealership

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    5 cycle parking spaces proposed

    Cycle parking plan shows 'New Sheffield' Broxap shelter that is 5m wide, though this does not match up with the much smaller box shown on the Site Plan.

    Cycle parking is not secured.

    Existing accessway to site gives priority to motor vehicles and not people walking or cycling.

    Highways has already chimed in to require that the applicants give a 25m visibility splay to the shared-use pavement alongside Babraham Road.

    ...

    Erection of 4no. flats with associated bin and cycle stores, following demolition of existing bungalows. Erection of a valet building and creation of additional first floor space.
