"Over the last 3 years there have been 26 traffic accidents recorded in Stag Lane resulting in 31 casualties. These casualties included 10 vehicle passengers, 9 vehicle drivers, 6 motorcycle riders, 4 cyclists and 2 pedestrians.
A 20 mph speed limit on Stag Lane and Roe Green between Mollison Way and Kingsbury Road designed to be self-enforcing through the introduction of traffic calming measures
Speed cushions on Stag Lane and Roe Green which are narrow enough to allow a wide wheel based vehicle such as fire engine or an ambulance to pass relatively unhindered. A smaller wheel base vehicle such as a car however would need to have at least one set of wheels on some part of the cushion. Speed cushions have proved very effective in helping to reduce vehicle speeds.
New pedestrian refuge islands on Stag Lane, by Carlisle Road and Goldsmith Lane to provide additional safe crossing points for pedestrians.
Footway widening (kerb build outs) at the junction of Carlisle Road and Tewkesbury Gardens to slow traffic and reduce crossing widths for pedestrians.
2 variable message speed signs to advise drivers to slow their speed.
The installation of short sections of double yellow line “At Any Time” waiting restrictions at the Harrod Court vehicle access to the clinic. "
The council proposes the following:
20mph Speed Limit– A new 20mph speed limit will be introduced on Ealing Road from Wembley High Road to Mount Pleasant. Eight electronic vehicle activated 20mph and speed indicator signs will be installed at regular intervals to advise drivers about the 20mph speed limit and their current speed;
Traffic Calming Features – Six new raised speed tables will be provided to reduce vehicle speeds and improve crossing facilities for pedestrians;
New Zebra Crossings – 2 new raised speed tables & zebra crossings and 1 raised existing zebra crossing will replace the existing traffic island and speed cushions. This will provide more opportunities for pedestrians to cross safely between the traffic flows.
Brent Council says: "Over the last 3 years (01/03/2015 and 28/02/2018) there have been 9 traffic accidents recorded involving 10 casualties in the mentioned area. One accident was fatal and a total of eight accidents were slight. The casualties involved were as follows; 1 vehicle driver, 1 passenger, 2 cyclists and 6 pedestrians. Speed surveys carried out last year also show that speeding occurs particularly in Wakeman Road and Rainham Road.
Speaking to your local resident association and ward councillors, we understand that there is a great interest from local community in introducing 20mph speed limits in all the streets within the Kensal Triangle area shown in the plan at the back of the page. We have been told that local residents want their streets to be safer, discourage drivers using the area as a rat run, and make their roads accessible to cyclists and pedestrians.
As a result of our discussions, we are therefore proposing to introduce a set of measures to encourage slower vehicle speeds and to reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents in the area."
There is now a nice new fully separated cycle path from the north end of Stow-cum-Quy along Colders Lane and Quy Road, which provides easy access to Anglesey Abbey, Lode, and a useful connection between cycle routes 51 and 11, with onward access to Wicken Fen. This is really great. However, to get onto this path from cycle route 51, just after the Newmarket Road junction with the A14, requires cycling along half a mile of busy, narrow, 30 mph road with no cycleway, and traffic calming (islands) that encourages wreckless overtaking of bicycles. The only safe option is to cycle on a narrow footpath with no signage.
Could at least painted cycle lanes be added to the road here, and with a 20 mph speed limit to make the village nicer for cyclists, residents and pedestrians? This could also encourage many more visitors to Anglesey Abbey from Cambridge to go by bike, and to go more regularly, benefiting the National Trust.
The Mayor of London published his Transport Strategy (MTS) in March 2018. The aim is for 80 per cent of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041 (compared with 63 per cent in 2015).
Our Third LIP sets out how we plan to implement the MTS locally as well as our other local transport-related priorities. LIPs are statutory documents and all London boroughs must prepare and submit their LIPs to Transport for London (TfL) for Mayor of London approval. See the MTS on the London.gov website.
There are four main elements of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's LIP:
To help shape the themes of our LIP we ran an online map-based ‘Commonplace’ survey during the summer of 2018, inviting people to tell us the kind of transport improvements they would like to see in their local area. See the online map.
407 people responded to the question ‘What is your biggest concern about getting around on Kensington and Chelsea's streets? Amongst all respondents the top five concerns in descending order were:

Camden is consulting on changes that originate from a desire to remove through motor traffic from Anglers Lane.
This rat-running motor traffic comes from the west via Prince of Wales Road (PoW) and is headed north up Kentish Town Road (KTR). Camden says that this traffic should remain on Prince of Wales Road and use a newly instated left turn into Kentish Town Road.
Cambridgeshire County Council have a project to upgrade the existing Girton-Oakington cycle path. The upgrade is planned between the northern end of Manor Farm Road in Girton and Mansell Farm in Oakington (start of 30 mph limit), between which the majority of the route will be widened to ~3 m. There are no real proposals to improve the junction with New Road.

Hackney are consulting on their three-year LIP. Objectives and full document here: https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/streetscene/lip/
We are seeking your views to make improvements to the Bricklayers Arms roundabout, New Kent Road and Old Kent Road.
In line with the Mayor’s Healthy Streets approach to make streets healthier, safer and more welcoming we will be realigning the roundabout to create a bus lane on the roundabout slip road which can be used by both buses and cyclists. This will aim to make the road more attractive to cyclists and improve journey times for bus services, reducing the reliance on private cars. Our proposals include:
Removing existing islands on Old Kent Road and the roundabout, and modifying the road layout to direct general traffic away from the slip road and onto the roundabout
Creating new traffic islands on the Old Kent Road, New Kent Road and the roundabout to separate the slip road from the roundabout
Creating a bus gate for buses, taxis, cycles and motorcycles to use the cut through in the traffic island to access the new segregated bus lane on the slip road
Changing the westbound bus lane on New Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Changing the northbound bus lane on Old Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Red line markings to change from single to double red lines on Old Kent Road and New Kent Road

In the consultation Camden states that they propose measures to improve the public realm and reduce bus journey times through the junction of Heath Street, East Heath Road and West Heath Road in Hampstead.
We note that buses 268 and 603 run along Heath Street through this junction.
They list the following problems:
- The staggered arrangement of East Heath Road and West Heath Road means that it is difficult to turn right or travel straight ahead when exiting West Heath Road
- pedestrians crossing the northern arm of the junction over Heath Street have to cross away from the their desire line
- southbound traffic on Heath Street is held while pedestrians cross East Heath Road
Harrow council originally proposed a segregated cycle route along Honeypot Lane / Marsh Lane, as part of the 2013 mini-Holland bid, but it was not funded. They are currently trying to build a cycle route along the Jubilee line using LIP funding. This route does not follow the direct main roads, but uses mostly minor roads, with some sections of shared footway along main roads.
The original consultation is for the scheme shown on the map above, but a more direct route using a short section of Honeypot Lane is also going being worked up.
Scheme description (From Harrow council consultation leaflet):
Stanmore Station / London Road
1.New shared use footway and Toucan Crossing. The existing footway outside Stanmore Station will be widened to incorporate a shared use footway (which allows both pedestrians and cyclists to use the footway) to start the westbound cycle route on London Road through to the junction with Merrion Avenue. This will improve cycle access to Stanmore Station, a key interchange along this route. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
2.Raised table to provide level access to cyclists and pedestrians on Merrion Avenue at its junction with London Road. This will provide continuity to the cycle route, assist in slowing down traffic accessing Merrion Avenue and improve cycle and pedestrian safety at the junction.
3. New Parallel Pedestrian and Cyclist Crossing with shared use on adjacent footways, which would allow them to safely cross Whitchurch Lane. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
4. Shared use footway on south side of Whitchurch Avenue between the parallel crossing and the pedestrian crossing on
This will require some widening into the adjacent green area of Stanmore Marsh to the south. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
5. New traffic island and shared use footway to provide protection for right turning cyclists south of the junction with Wemborough Road. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
6. Shared use footway on east side of Honeypot Lane between the pedestrian crossing at Broadcroft Avenue and Collins Avenue. The existing turning head south of Dalston Gardens will be raised to footway level to accommodate the shared use footway. A vehicle crossover will be provided, in the location of the turning head, to aid turning vehicles. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
7. Raised table to provide level access to cyclists and pedestrians on Aldridge Avenue This will provide continuity to the cycle route, assist in slowing down traffic accessing Aldridge Avenue and improve cycle and pedestrian safety at the junction.
8. New Parallel Crossing with adjacent shared-use footway on Camrose Avenue west of Turner Road for pedestrians and cyclists to allow them to safely cross Camrose Avenue.
9. Shared use footway on Camrose Avenue between Collins Road and Turner Road. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.
10. Shared use footway on Turner Road between Camrose Avenue and the borough boundary (near Queensbury Station). This will require some footway widening into the carriageway. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway. Along with the above measures, we are proposing to provide cycle road markings and traffic signs for cyclists, pedestrians and motorised traffic at various locations along the route. These signs and road markings are necessary to inform all road users of the presence of the cyclists on the road and the cycle route.
Honeypot Lane, Wigton Gardens, Aldridge Avenue
With the amount of funding made available next financial year, we anticipate to carry out further investigation on providing a more direct cycle route through Honeypot Lane – Wigton Gardens – Aldridge Avenue. A separate public consultation will be carried out on proposed measures along these roads.
There is to be a new cycle path running W-E through the developing community garden in the Clay Farm development in Cambridge's southern fringe. It follows the line of a gas main (purple line on the plan).
The garden is already split by Hobson Avenue running N-S. The cycle route crosses that road and there are four 15metre wide gaps in the hedge where the cycle route enters/exits the garden.
The cycle path will probably have a chicane design at each end to slow cyclists at junction points. Here are some questions about the cycle path:
* How can the design ensure safety at the Hobson Road crossing?
* What should the four entrances/exits be like?
* What garden features should there be along the cycle path’s route?
* Should there be lighting?
* What other questions occur to you about the cycle path, and what answers can you offer?
This is part of a consultation intended for local residents, however I hope that someone here might be able to comment especially on the safety of the junctions where the cycle route crosses Hobson Avenue.
(The cycle route also crosses the busway at the Foster Road stop, though I guess that bit is beyond the scope of the community garden's consultation.)
Feel free to ask me here for clarifications, and please comment at the community garden's page below.

6.40 Downing Street will provide cycle access to 16 cycle spaces provided for staff within the site. These would be inside the building, so covered and secure, with lockers. The provision of 16 spaces is based in the cycle parking standards in the Local Plan requiring 2 space for every 5 members of staff. In this stance, with 18 staff this would require 7 cycle spaces. The additional provision will allow for flexibility to accommodate any additional
6.42 Guests travelling to the site by cycle may use the dockless cycle hire schemes now available in Cambridge, including Ofo and Mobike. These schemes do not require dedicated cycle parking spaces, and could be attractive to guests arriving at Cambridge Station without heavy luggage to then cycle the 1.4km (or 0.85 miles) to the site.
Didn't see much discussion about safety of the drop-off/pick-up area in front except that it 'would not block the carriageway'.

I read on the Regent's Park Cyclists Facebook page that Thames Water will be closing Gloucester Gate for water mains replacement, starting January 2019, ending June 2019.
They are requiring cyclists to dismount and use the footway.
The Friends of Regents Park have expressed fears of cyclists unwilling to dismount, and the attendant danger to footway users.
Justin Mckie will be asking Thames to provide a way for cyclists.
If it is anything like the works on Park Village East this autumn, there was plenty of space to provide a small passage for cyclists it was just a lack of cooperation from Thames Water than prevented it. I contacted them directly, they replied but refused to help.
If anyone has any influence at Thames Water/HS2/Camden it might be worth following this up.
This is a massive desire line for daily cycling and will be a large inconvenience for six months. On the plus side, it will be interesting to monitor motor traffic levels in the park with Gloucester Gate closed.
This map shows all issues, whether points, routes, or areas:
The most popular issues, based on the number of votes:
This crossing is a problem for all road users, and it's quite common to hear blaring horns and screeching tyres. Pedestrians have a Puffin crossing, but for cyclists there is nothing. There is good reason for cyclists to cross Linden Road here, as it connects the bulk of the Bournville housing with the Worcester and Birmingham canal and the Rea Valley cycle route, and the motor traffic levels on Mary Vale Road are tolerable. Linden Road, on the other hand, is busy with motor traffic, including trucks. So the crossing needs to be improved, especially for cyclists heading along Mary Vale Road. Helpful to cyclists would be changing the priority in favour of Mary Vale Road. This would also encourage motorists to slow down on Linden Road. Unravelling routes in this way (so that cyclists cross main roads at a right angle and giving the cycling route priority) is one of the ways the Dutch encourage people to cycle rather than drive. Other possibilities are traffic lights or a mini-roundabout.

East-West Cycle Superhighway Phase 2 from Paddington to Acton
The carpark entrance cuts across the cycleway and has shallow corner radii encouraging fast entrance and exit speeds which are a danger to cyclists using the cycleway.
The cycleway should be curved away from the roadway at the junction and a marked crossing put in place a cars length from the roadway allowing space for entering and exiting cars to giveway to cyclists moving along the cycleway.

The gate at the north end of the Innocent tunnel only leaves a narrow opening.
1. It's generally too narrow for trailers etc.
2. You move from bright light outside into the darkness of the tunnel, and going into the tunnel you often can't see people cycling or walking out; this would not be an issue of the full width of the path was usable.
3. The gap is at the edge of the path with various surface defects
Cyclists use this route on the A602 between Stony Hills and the Sacombe Pound junction when travelling between Hertford and Dane End. Planning Application PL\0852\17 covers Ware Road and includes changes to the Stony Hills and sacombe Pound junctions.
The A602 carries heavy traffic and this scheme is designed to improve traffic flows along the A602, mainly by realigning and adding right-turn lanes between Stevenage and Ware:
- Vehicles turning right are blocking traffic behind, causing delays.
- Tight bends and poor visibility make the road less safe than it could be.
- Often long queues at junctions.
Construction works for Hertford Road junction, Stevenage; Anchor Lane, Westmill Road and the A10 junction near Ware are now planned to start in August 2017.
Further planning applications have been submitted for Ware Road and the A119 roundabout.
The planning case officer is Sharon Threlfall. Comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Important connection to get from Gilmerton Rd to Liberton Rd/Mayfield Rd/Kings Buildings, but road surface is badly cratered with some deep holes in blind corners.
This short section of The Vineyard is one way street. Opening this up to 2 way for cyclists - through signage and a 20mph limit - would improve permeability for cyclists in Richmond centre.
Route proposal for the link from Prospect Road/Verulamium Park to the start of the Alban Way.
The route is a shared, wide, pavement with a width around 3 metres- in line with minimum width for a shared route.

St Michael's Road can be a useful local route for west-bound cyclists avoiding the central junction in Headingley and its approach roads, dominated by queuing traffic or parked cars.
The current configuration could be improved to allow cyclists approaching the junction to cross directly from St Michael's Rd into the cycle box immediately in front of the traffic lights at the northern extremity of Cardigan Road.
A dedicated traffic signal, coordinated with the parallel pedestrian crossing (to the extreme right of the image), would allow cyclists to cross from the island in the foreground to the advanced stop line in the far lane.
These improvements would require very little actual ground work, instead making use of smarter signal control. Further adjustments to the sequencing could see cyclists granted a synchronized left turn into Kirkstall Lane.

The tucan crossing is out of phase with the lights at Church Road meaning that traffic coming along the A316 into Kew Rd is not held at the tucan but is then stopped at Church Rd so that cyclists and pedestrians have to wait for traffic to enter Kew Rd.
Re-phase the lights so that the tucan crossing is red for the roadway at the same time that it is red for the lights at Church Rd, so that there is a single green phase along the cycleway across the end of Kew Rd.
RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014
There are relatively shallow paths that run from both ends of the bridge down to the A4143, but both have shallow steps that stop them being useful to cyclists. This means that people heading out of the hospital wanting to cycle down the A4143 towards Llanfoist have to cross the road with the traffic, rather than the safer alternative of crossing the bridge and coming down the ramp.
Note that openstreetmap's map of this is incorrect. I'll submit a correction (11-04-2014)
Always been a bit of a problem - worse for pedestrians than cyclists.
Detailed (re-)design is apparently underway.
I have just posted a blog about Bristol's Strategic Cycling Network, which I wanted to share with you. I would in fact very much welcome some feedback, and I hope this blog generates a bit of discussion.
Merry Christmas all.
The garage at the end of radcliffe road uses the end of this road as a car storage area, which often results in the access onto the cyclepath being obstructed.
Comment from October 2014 Cycle Ipswich meeting:
"Belle Vue Road is very steep for a recommended cycle route."
It's marked on the Ipswich Cycle Route Map.
Hello, I'm wondering how many other Cambridge cyclists have shared the experience I've had (about once per month now) regarding a particular elderly lady who insists that bikes are not allowed on the "footpath" adjacent to the Trumpington allotments, between Shelford Rd & the new busway in CB2. This path seems clearly demarcated as a shared pedestrian-cycle path on the cycle maps provided at the council link (below). However, it is not clearly labeled as such on the path itself, leading her to become quite angry with any cyclist who gets near her & her dog while they're out walking (and obstructing the path to underscore her point). "It's a footpath" she yells, and storms away.
So my questions are 1) am I correct in interpreting the council map (below) as permitting bikes on this path and 2) how might one go about requesting proper signage, clearly saying bikes & pedestrians are both welcome?
Thanks for any feedback, Robert

Access to QR10 from Fillyside Road requires either:
- Cycle across busy/fast road and up full height kerb
- Turn right onto busy/fast road for ~100m, turn left up dropped (but not flush) kerb
- Cycle on pavement and cross at traffic island
Any cyclist using this cycle lane is at risk from vehicles using the narrow main carriageway as they move into the cycle lane to make it around the corner.
This junction is newly designed and was installed in Summer 2012.
To investigate the purchase of land adjacent to the Bristol Bath Railway Path (BBRP) to provide a link to the Dings Railway Path which connects to Temple Meads station.
The BBRP is one of Britain’s busiest off-road pedestrian and cycle paths with over 5000 people using it daily. The current link to Bristol Temple Meads is via St Phillips Road and Horton Street, both of which can be heavily trafficked with vehicles travelling at speed. A continuation of an off road route into Temple Meads would be very popular and help achieve the Local Enterprise Site aims for sustainable transport.

When cycling along western park road towards mutley. On sections that have speed bumps without the traffic islands/bollards, car/taxi drivers dangerously position their cars (across both lanes) at speed to avoid the speed bumps. Friday & Saturday nights is the worst time with the taxi's.
This section of the flagship National Cycle Network Route 1 on entering Ipswich is of particularly poor quality. There are nettles, brambles and other bushes overgrowning the very rough and narrow path. Is this really the quality of cycling that we want to show to Dutch cyclists coming over from the Netherlands who would have expected there to be a tarmaced cycle path that's a couple of metres wide. There is space to here to place a good surface.
Significant domestic car parking in the advisory cycle lane of westbound lane combines with heavy traffic jams to obstruct/block westbound passage to cyclists in rush hour. Generally there is a section of this route where pavement pushing is unavoidable
