  • 18/1664/FUL 4 Highworth Ave - erection of 5 terraced dwellings

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    5x 2BR terraced dwellings to replace existing house.

    Cycle Parking consists of small sheds in front gardens that require lifting and won't feature independent access.

    Front garden doors may be only 85cm wide.

    It is not proposed to install additional dropped kerbs, a point that we may wish to strongly support because if any additional dropped kerbs are installed they would enter onto the Elizabeth Way roundabout (and the future GCP Milton Road scheme at the roundabout) introducing problems of highway safety for people walking and cycling at the roundabout.

  • Sutton Tram Link

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/trams/sutton-link/?cid=sutton-link

    Here's the overview from TFL:

    Overview
    We are consulting on proposals for a new, direct and quicker transport link between Sutton and Merton. We have called this the Sutton Link.

    The Sutton Link would create a high-capacity route for people travelling between Sutton town centre and Merton using zero-emission vehicles. It would connect with other major transport services into central London and across south London, including National Rail, London Underground, existing tram and bus services. It would make journeys by public transport quicker and more attractive, and reduce the need for trips by private car.

    Many of the neighbourhoods along the proposed routes have limited public transport options. The Sutton Link would support new homes being built and would improve access to jobs, services, major transport hubs and leisure opportunities across both boroughs and beyond.

    Our work is at a stage where we would like to know your views about three potential routes. We are considering a tram or ‘bus rapid transit’ (BRT) for the Sutton Link and would also like to know your views on this.

    BRT is similar to a tram but runs on road segregated from traffic where possible, not on rails, and carries fewer people in each vehicle. A full explanation is included below in the section titled ‘About trams and bus rapid transit’.

    From LCC -

    general principles would be ensure this doesn’t negatively impact cycle routes, that there are good routes to the stations/stops, that any places where cyclists will be crossing tracks are designed carefully with latest materials to avoid tramlining incidents, that the space comes from private car lanes.

  • Harper Road Street Improvements (post-width restriction experiment)

    Created by Laurence // 1 thread

    Consultation from Southwark Council following the experimental width-restrictions:

    We are proposing a range of street improvements to Harper Road and would like to hear what you think. The proposed Harper Road street improvements include the junction of Swan Street and extend to New Kent Road*. The street falls within the project study area for Walk Elephant and will form part of a future quietway, currently in concept design, to join quietway 7 at Falmouth Road. The design was developed in coordination with other works in the street: shopfront renewal at the shopping parade and refurbishment of Dickens Square Park.

    We have spoken to residents and stakeholders over the past couple of years who have told us about a number of issues at Harper Road. A 'Healthy Streets' perception survey conducted this summer confirmed many of the concerns raised:

    Cars, HGVs and other large vehicles have been using Harper Road as a through-route. The traffic is intimidating, travelling at high speeds, and poses a hazard to pedestrians, particularly vulnerable road users such as children attending the Globe Academy, the elderly and children visiting the mosque and parks and cyclists accessing nearby quietways.
    Harper Road does not always feel like a safe and inclusive place for pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. The shopping parade is neglected. There are pinch-points in the footway where there are mature trees and sign posts, and there are not enough crossing opportunities in the street.
    There's a lack of safe and comfortable places for people to stop and rest, relax and pass the time.
    We are proposing a number of other measures in the street to make the street feel safer and more likely to encourage people to walk and cycle:

    Keep the trial width restrictions as a permanent measure with a more robust feature (e.g. bell bollard) at Harper Road, and replace the existing island in Bath Terrace with a gate/removable bollards to allow emergency access. The width restriction which has resulted in an 86% drop in HGVs and 23% drop in motorised vehicles in Harper Road, reducing peak flows to below 500, and reducing traffic in the surrounding streets. The proportion of HGVs dropped from 5.8% to 1% in the middle section of the road, and NO2 levels have decreased in three monitoring locations in the street (see results attached below). While a full road closure or filter has been requested by some residents and stakeholders, at this stage the width restriction along with complementary measures below is considered proportionate as a measure to reduce traffic flows and speeds in the street. We will monitor the effect of the measures, and assess the need for further measures such as filtering at a later stage.
    Slow down traffic with new raised crossings, narrowing of the road, and more cycle-friendly sinusoidal speed humps (replacing any speed sushions).
    Improve accessibility for people from all walks of life by widening footways, providing raised crossings, providing reserved cycle stands for cyclists with disabilities and creating more accessible crossings (e.g. drop kerbs with wider traffic island, and associated tactile paving).
    Minimal effect on existing parking: A car club bay and two bays will be relocated further west down the road, and loss of one one permit and paid space at Dickens Square Park, and two short stay bays by New Kent Road. The effect of this is considered negligible considering the low parking occupancy in the area.
    Resurface the footway at the shopping parade with granite paving stones in line with our streetscape palette, to complement the planned shopfront improvements.
    Replace existing planters at the shopping parade with new planting and seating to make the area more attractive and provide places to stop and rest.
    Change the service road in front of shops to one way to improve safety and reconfigure footpath, allowing extension of parking bay (N.B. angled parking was assessed with tracking software and was not feasible due to the TfL cycle stand obstructing movements).
    Add more cycle stands at the shopping parade.
    Add single seats in the wide footway south of Falmouth Road so that people walking can stop and rest.
    Remove street clutter (posts, railing and bollards) and remove the give way road feature south of Falmouth Road to make the area more pleasant and feel more inclusive.
    Provide things to see and do: paint electricity boxes by Rockingham Street, and create play opportunities such as hopscotch, in the wide footway south of Falmouth Road.
    You can see these proposals in detail in the proposed Preliminary Design attached below.

    Please let us know how you feel about these ideas, what comments and suggestions you might have, and what other aspirations you might have for the street, using our online questionnaire below.

    In addition to the questionnaire if you would like to share your views and suggestions and see what other people think, please go to our interactive map.

    Please also see upcoming events below for an opportunity to discuss the proposals with council officers.

    *The section of road from Newington Causeway/Borough High Street to Swan Street will be part of later scheme tied in with the redevelopment of the corner at Borough High Street and the upcoming Quietway design.

  • 18/1601/FUL 35-37 Russell St - 7 1BR flats & communal cycle park

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    'car-free' development (except 1 blue badge space)

    4 1BR units targeted at 2 residents and 3 1BR units targeted at a single resident.

    The cycle park in the rear garden is almost large enough to contain 3 Sheffield stands + 1 half-usable Sheffield, for 7 spaces. It appears to measure 3400mm in width internally -- would need about 3750mm to truly fit that arrangement within spec.

    There is a door on the passageway to reach the rear garden, next to the bins, which is only 850mm wide. Needs to be at least 1000mm according to Section 3.8.1.

  • 18/1518/FUL Abacus House - new cycle shelter & building extension

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Truly one of the stupidest designs I have seen lately.

    12 Sheffield stands spaced at 85cm and jammed between two walls thus ensuring there is no possible way to access the stands.

    There seem to be some existing wheelbenders that could use replacement.

    The (existing) building is still quite short of requirements. With the new extension they will have 32 car parking spaces (maximum is supposed to be 18) and (not really) 38 cycle 'parking' spaces (minimum is supposed to be 60).

    ...

  • Brixton Town Centre Bus lane changes

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Brixton Road is a busy road served by 16 bus routes during the day and seven bus routes at night. Customers using our bus services either visit Brixton Town Centre, or interchange with other local services including Tube, train and cycle hire.

    We recognise the importance that buses play in the town centre. We are proposing improvements to the road layout which will speed up journey times of southbound bus services, and subsequently improve bus reliability.

    What are we proposing?

    Our proposals include:

    Rationalising bus stopping arrangements for southbound services in Brixton Town centre. We will reduce the number of bus stops from three to two which will better match destinations and improve interchange between bus services. One bus stop will serve routes to Herne Hill and Tulse Hill etc and the other will serve routes to Brixton Hill and beyond.
    Creating a double bus lane on Brixton Road (southbound only). This will reduce the number of general traffic lanes to one.
    Starting the southbound bus lane on the A23, south of the junction Acre Lane, Coldharbour Lane and Effra Road earlier
    Relocating and slightly increasing the length of a loading bay in the southbound bus lane
    Providing signage and line markings which will make it clear which lanes vehicles should use at the Acre Lane/Coldharbour Lane and Effra Road junction. This will improve safety.
    Please refer to the plans below for further details.

  • Quietway 5 - Pathfield Road Scheme

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Quietway 5 is a cycle route linking Waterloo to Norbury that passes through Lambeth North, Vauxhall and Clapham. Following the delivery of the one way closure on Estreham Road we are working on a scheme to address the issues in Pathfield Road.

    The Options Considered

    The top three solutions mentioned at the event that have been assessed were;

    Relocating or removing the existing point closure in Estreham Road
    A residents parking scheme
    Introduction of traffic restrictions to reduce traffic volumes
    Relocating the existing barrier on Estreham Road was considered, however, this would simply redistribute the traffic on to more local roads and not necessarily address the issue of rat-running traffic, speeding and increased parking on Pathfield Road. Also, the scheme to retain the point closure at Estreham Road received majority support from the wider community after the trial period in 2016.

    Options around parking controls in the area are being coordinated by the CPZ team. They are analysing the feedback from the Streatham parking attitudinal survey carried out at beginning of 2018 and will be providing feedback in the coming months.

    Given the above, the council's view is that the introduction of traffic restrictions to reduce the amount of traffic on Pathfield Road is the best option to address the issues raised at the meeting. We are also proposing speed humps to reduce general traffic speeds. The main proposals are detailed in the plan below.

    The Proposals

    You can view the proposals at the link below. The main changes proposed are;

    No-entry except cycles from Estreham Road to Pathfield Road, to prevent the majority of rat-running traffic from using Pathfield Road
    New sinusoidal humps installed along Pathfield Road to reduce general traffic speeds.
    No-entry except cycles from Greyhound Lane to Rotherhill Avenue, to prevent any rat running traffic that might use this route
    Junction improvements, with new greening/tree planting at Pathfield Road/Estreham Road. This proposal will require the loss of 1 informal parking space.

    Flyer says:
    Wandsworth Council is proposing a pedestrian and cycle bridge to
    connect Westminster and the new neighbourhood emerging in Nine Elms
    as well as the existing communities south of the river.
    The connection will improve access to this new shopping, restaurant and
    cultural district, as well as the new green spaces, thousands of jobs and
    Northern Line stations.
    Following consultation in 2017 on nine possible locations between
    Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges we have now selected three location
    options for further exploration.
    We want to find out what you think about this new car free bridge so are
    holding public exhibitions across Wandsworth, Westminster and Lambeth.
    Join us to learn more about the proposal and help shape one of London’s
    most exciting infrastructure projects. See the back of this leaflet for time
    and location details.

  • A3220 Cheyne Walk with Lots Road junction

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL says:
    The A3220 Cheyne Walk runs east-west along the northern Thames embankment. Its junction with Lots Road is used moderately by cars, cyclists and buses and the footways are busy with pedestrians. Cycle flows at the junction are relatively high.
    We are proposing improvements that will make it easier and safer for people to walk and cycle across Cheyne Walk, while also making it easier for turning HGVs by increasing the road space and improving sight lines.

    What are we proposing?
    Installing a new signal-controlled toucan crossing to replace the existing zebra crossing. The crossing will feature a Countdown unit, and will be configured to reduce pedestrian wait times, making it easier and safer for people to walk and cycle across Cheyne Walk
    Enhance the existing shared-use footway on the southern side of Cheyne Walk to provide more space for pedestrians, as well as an enhanced cycling connection to Lots Road
    Upgrading paving throughout the area to help visually impaired and blind people, improving conditions for vulnerable users
    Providing a new ramped inlet on the northern side of Cheyne Walk to provide safe and easy access to the toucan crossing
    Re-landscaping the pedestrian island on Lots Road to make vehicle movements easier and safer for all road users
    Subject to the outcome of this consultation, we plan to implement these changes in 2019.

    Will these changes affect your journey?
    These changes are designed to ensure that pedestrians and vulnerable people have a safe way to cross Cheyne Walk, while improving the movement of traffic throughout the area.
    Our modelling shows that the junctions will continue to operate efficiently and the changes will have little impact on journey times through the area. We will monitor the completed scheme to ensure it is operating as expected and make adjustments as required.

  • Sudden disappearance of off-road path

    Anon // 1 thread

    This is a bit of a York classic. You're on Piccadilly, and you want to reach Fishergate. What do you do? Well. head south along Piccadilly and you'll see a sign guiding you to the off-road link of Dixon Lane to the normally dead quiet George Street. You then follow George Street all the way to Fishergate Bar, and everything feels very civilised. You cross with the pedestrians on to the shared path street outside the Barbican, continuing to head south along the marked off-road cycle/pedestrian lane to the side of the Barbican. Bliss - the Council does care about cyclists' safety and convenience, it really does! But then you reach Kent Street, and the confusion starts. There's a sign pointing to the right - where's the path? Turns out there is no path - you're expected to join the road without even a painted cycle lane. Turning left from Kent Street on to Fishergate. a rudimentary painted cycle lane emerges, but it's not enough to prevent stupidly close overtakes by motorists as happened to me today.

    Personally, I think there is sufficient room to provide better for cyclists here. Either way, this summary end of provision for cyclists really ain't great at all.

  • Slow progress on the Belmont Viaduct link.

    Created by Kester // 1 thread

    The Belmont Viaduct is an essential sustainable transport link for the North Durham area. Trees were allowed to grow on it which would have eventually torn the structure apart. These trees have now been removed. More work needs to be done before it is suitable for general use.

    Opening this route will be a life saver for commuting cyclists.

  • Stoke Newington Gyratory

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    We have worked with Hackney Council on proposals for how Stoke Newington would look and operate after the gyratory is removed. Our plans would provide a new northbound cycle track on the A10 and a new bus and cycle lane enabling people to cycle southbound on Stoke Newington High Street.

    This would remove a significant barrier to cycling in the area and provide new traffic-free public spaces to meet, shop, play and relax and a host of other improvements aimed at creating a more attractive and less traffic-dominated environment for people.

    Our plans will accommodate the area’s future growth and encourage active travel, with more people choosing to walk, cycle and use public transport and less people travelling by car.

    These proposals aim to improve the quality of life in the area by:

    Transforming the town centre by creating a single unified retail location with an enhanced environment for pedestrians and cyclists
    Improving the public transport interchange, achieved through two-way bus operation, reducing congestion, and simplifying bus stops
    Improving cycling facilities and access through the A10
    Encouraging more journeys by walking, cycling or public transport to/from the High Street
    Reducing rat-running in residential streets

    Our proposals would:

    Introduce a new northbound cycle track with bus stop bypasses on Stoke Newington High Street providing a dedicated space for people to cycle
    Introduce a new southbound bus and cycle lane along Stoke Newington High Street. Most buses and bikes will no longer travel the longer route along Northwold, Rectory and Manse Road when heading towards the City. This will provide better access to High Street facilities
    Introduce two-way traffic operation along Rectory, Manse and Evering Roads
    New modal filters at the junctions of Tyssen, Hollar and Batley Roads at their junction with the High Street. These closures are designed to reduce rat-running through residential streets
    Create three new ‘pocket parks’ where these roads are closed to traffic, creating a more welcoming retail environment and encouraging people to spend more time in the town centre. There could be new seating areas, trees, local community gardens, entertainment, and cycling parking spaces
    Restrict vehicular access eastbound to Evering Road from Manse Road and to Northwold Road from Rectory Road
    Introduce a new type of pavement treatment at side road junctions called a ‘continuous footway’. Introducing continuous footways in Stoke Newington High Street intends to emphasise that pedestrians have priority
    Introduce three new pedestrian crossings, all with pedestrian countdown, making streets in the area easier and safer to cross
    Introduce a new 20mph speed limit and raised junctions and crossings to slow traffic speeds and reduce road danger
    Formalise parking and loading bays, including hours of operation
    High Street south of Brooke Road: Monday - Sunday from 07:00 - 19:00 , 20 minutes loading and one hour parking only
    High Street between Brooke Road and Stoke Newington Church Street: Monday - Sunday from 07:00 - 10:00, 20 minutes loading only

    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.
