cycle parking is a vague 'bike storage' area handwaved in the rear garden somewhere
the plot is oddly shaped like a triangle, and it's completely unclear how the rear garden could be accessed at all.

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

Improvements to the pedestrian environment at the front of Leeds Station.
Slightly annoying that this has not come to the Cycle Forum subgroups so this is the first I have seen of it.
It seems to me more could be done to improve connectivity with cyclepoint.

There are a number of Greater Cambridgeshire Partnership (GCP) projects that could present opportunities for improvements to Market Square. What improvements would Camcycle suggest for safer walking and cycling?
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.
D&A p113 (section: Accessibility): 'Cycle storage has been minimised on the site to reflect the hotel’s use and proximity to the City Centre. We therefore show 16 spaces in alignment with the Transport Assessment.' Room with '16' cycles (unspecified arrangement) accessed from Downing Place. 5 Sheffield stands shown in front on the pavement. Planning Statement: 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 demand. 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'. ... Change of use and refurbishment of the existing Grade II listed office building (use Class B1(a) Offices to a 57 bed boutique hotel (Use Class C1) and cafe/tea room (use Class A3), in include replacement of glazed screen on the St Andrew's street facade, upgrading thermal character of the glazed roof over drill hall to create a central atrium, removal of existing northern wing to create two floors above, second floor extension to the existing southern wing; together with partial demolition and replacement new-building at the rear and associated works.

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.
Westminster council are doing two important things at the moment. There is a consultation on "Oxford Street District" here: https://osd.london The other thing WCC are doing is going to close Riding House Street with the Camden boundary at the junction of Cleveland Street by installing bollards across the road. The street has already been closed for over a year and it has had no negative impact. Camden have already done this at Fitzroy Square and Warren Street and it has been very positive. We need to do more of the same. The issue of through traffic -- including Torrington Place -- needs to be dealt with as a matter of urgency. All areas of Fitzrovia are above the legal limit for NO2, except for Crabtree Fields open space. (Sample readings: 55 µg/m3 - legal limit is 40 µg/m3. NO2 pollution on Oxford Street east is 66 µg/m3 & on Euston Road it is 84 µg/m3.) Camden has so far refused to entertain the two road closures I have suggested - Torrington Place and Goodge Place. I am now going to suggest the following road closures to Camden and Westminster to make Fitzrovia "access only". Close Goodge Street at Westminster boundary at junction with Goodge Place; close New Cavendish Street at the junction with Cleveland Street, and finally close Clipstone Street at the junction with Cleveland Street (this would also require Cleveland Street to be one-way north bound). I believe it will not impact on access to all streets by motor vehicles for deliveries and drop-offs, etc. But it will eliminate entirely motor through traffic across the Camden/Westminster border and mitigate the effect of Gower Street northbound traffic turning into Torrington Place. This would also cut down on traffic along Grafton Way which also a victim of WEP.

The new cycle lanes on Arbury Road are great but I'm worried the asphalt height hasn't been done to a tight enough tolerance. In places the step from the road up the kerb to the cycle path is quite large, so I'm reluctant to move over from the road to the cycle lane until I reach a flat part. I may be being over-cautious but I've had bad experiences in the past with falling off and bucked wheels from riding up kerbs at too shallow an angle, and I'm reluctant to experiment too hard! Does anyone know what the tolerance is meant to be, and whether it has been met here?
Not clear that there is an explicit consultation for this. LIP link attached. Discussion thread added. level. This is known as a Local Implementation Plan. A Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is a statutory document prepared under Section 145 of the GLA Act. It represents a borough’s own transport strategy and is reviewed on an annual basis. This is the third LIP prepared by Havering and it aligns with the MTS published in March 2018 for the period up to 2041. The draft LIP explains how the borough will implement the transport elements of the draft London Plan, the Mayor’s Transport Strategy and other relevant Mayoral strategies. The draft LIP also takes into account Havering’s own plans and strategies, particularly the Havering Local Plan submitted in March 2018, and sets out the long term vision for transport in Havering up to 2041. The Council is undertaking a consultation exercise to seek the views of the public, local businesses and other interested parties. Responses will be taken into account when drafting the final LIP3 document to be submitted to TfL in early 2019. please email the Transportation Planning team: email@example.com or write to:
We’re planning what improvements we’d like to make to transport in the borough for future decades and would like your views. We’ve recently published our draft ‘Local Implementation Plan’ which sets out our ambitions and plans for improving the transport network and making it more environmentally friendly. “We want to make this the greenest borough in Britain,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment. “This plan sets out ways we hope to improve air quality, reduce congestion, encourage more walking and cycling and promote the use of public transport and electric vehicles. “It also sets out how we can make our transport grow and be more efficient in the future.”

Station Road in Histon seems to have a large, and in my view inappropriate amount of through traffic. I assume the majority of the traffic is attempting to avoid the traffic lights and the Green and shave some time of their drive through Histon. There is a large amount of foot and cycle traffic along this road, as the direct route between two schools with many parents having children at both (infant and junior). The foot paths are very narrow and the amount of traffic makes cycling (espcially with children) intimidating. I think the situation (for people on bikes and foot at least) could very cheaply be massively improved by blocking Station road to through traffic, restoring thee road to what it should be, a quiet residential street. I suppose this would lead to some traffic jams, at least at first until people get used to it. I've recently spoken to several people, mostly other parents, who have similar opinions. Does anyone have a view on a good way forward in terms of campaigning on this? I wondered about trying to set up a petition, which I could circulate amount parents to try and show that there could be significant support for this. Or course there may also be significant backlash.... Or should I try and talk to the parish council first. Any thoughts welcome. I've suggested this to the parish council several times (as have other parents I discover) but nothing has yet happened (I've not even had a reply...)

Alert: Fen Road Milton to be closed for resurfacing Friday 14th Dec. As there's no pavement, it will be totally closed even to pedestrians. However, given the terrible state of the road, one day's pain will be more than worth it.
Proposals for a new community park and affordable housing on Milton Road, Impington.
Is there a way of persuading the council that they should not be having bin collections or road sweeping on major roads around the city, which also act as major bike routes, bus routes, car commuter routes so are deeply congested during "rush hour" at silly times, ie during the same "rush hour"? Yesterday, it was a bin lorry wending its way down Hills Road at 8.45am; a danger to cyclists and the bin men themselves as well as causing a big queue. Today it was a road sweeper doing Maids Causeway which is a bus route at 8.30am, also causing a big queue. Both these roads will be significantly less busy come 9am. It's not just bad for cyclists but everyone. There are plenty of quieter roads in the city that can be attended to between about 8 and 9am, so why choose to do stuff on what I'd call the trunk roads of the city, holding up all the buses and making it horrible for cyclists. It's a lack of joined up thinking in my opinion.
Hackney council says: Hackney Council is working with Islington Council and Transport for London (TfL) to make improvements to the Cycle Superhighway Route 1 (CS1) on Balls Pond Road. In February 2015 TfL in partnership with Hackney Council consulted on the CS1 route which included two options for Balls Pond Road: an option for advisory cycle lanes on each side of the road and an option for a two-way segregated cycle track. A positive response to the consultation was received showing overall support for the segregated two-way cycle track along Balls Pond Road. In autumn 2015 a second consultation was held by TfL in partnership with Hackney Council on a motor traffic reduction scheme in the De Beauvoir area to assist users of the CS1 route. We are now seeking your views on measures required to implement the segregated two-way cycle track along Balls Pond Road between the junctions of Culford Road and Kingsbury Road. These measures would complete the route, safely connecting the two halves of the CS1.

From Leeds City Council RE: Declaration of a Public Bridleway at Red Hall at the south western end of the ELOR Leeds City Council is considering making a declaration to record the currently permissive bridleway between the Ring Road, Shadwell and Winn Moor Lane (around the perimeter of Leeds City Council’s Red Hall Site) as a Definitive Bridleway and record it on the Definitive Map and Statement. I have enclosed a map of the proposed bridleway shown with a solid pink line with cross bars. The section to be dedicated would be between A and B and it will have a recorded width of three metres. The ends of this existing permissive bridleway are to be diverted and improved by the East Leeds Orbital Road and have been included in the Side Roads Order which will enable them to also be recorded on the Definitive Map and Statement. I have attached a map showing the East Leeds Orbital Road, the existing permissive bridleway and the alteration that have been included in the Side Roads Order. The East Leeds Orbital Road will also extend the existing permissive bridleway east by providing a public bridleway along its north/ eastern boundary all the way to Barnbow Lane where it will connect to the existing bridleway network and the new/ diverted bridleways within The Springs retail and leisure development. A shared use footway/ bridleway will continue from the western end of the permissive bridleway along the side of the Ring Road/ A6120 to Leeds Bridleway No. 104. The claimed footpath across Red Hall Fields from the permissive bridleway to Red Hall Lane has been partially diverted by the Side Roads Order for the East Leeds Orbital Road with a bridge provided over the road. A decision will be taken to divert or dedicate the footpath on the south side of East Leeds Orbital Road will be made when future proposals for this land are decided. A Definitive Map Modification Order Application has been made for the claimed footpath that connects between the permissive bridleway and Winn Moor Lane and this is currently being investigated although a decision has not been made. I would be grateful to receive any comments that you may have regarding the declaration of the permissive bridleway as a public bridleway within four weeks of the date of this letter, so that they may be taken into consideration. If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

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. Overall scheme: 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.

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.

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 https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/sites/www.cambridge.gov.uk/files/documents/cambridge-cycling-map.pdf

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.
Proposal 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. Rationale 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. Part of the 2013 Bristol City Council LSTF proposals.

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

This proposed Maple Cross to Shepherd Primary School cycle route follows the existing Maple Cross to Rickmansworth route as far as the Long Lane/Eastwick Crescent junction in Mill End. The new part of the route consists of: * Part of the new Long Lane residential service road. * Part of Kenwood Drive. * Part of the old Long Lane road. * Rickmansworth Footpath 012 (upgraded to a bridleway). * Beresford Road. * Part of Penn Road. * Part of the south east path through King George V Playing Fields, Mill End. * The pathway leading to the new pedestrian entrance to Shepherd Primary School, near its cycle parking area.
No safe route from Collin to Dumfries town centre - the A75 is a dual carriageway along this stretch of road with no direct alternative route
Twice in the past week I have been cycling up St Johns to make a rh turn onto Cauldwell Hall and nearly been taken out by a driver taking the corner too fast as they travel north bound along Cauldwell Hall and turn down St Johns Rd. The problems are too fast traffic on Cauldwell Hall and poor design at that junction , need an island to separate traffic.
I propose the creation of bike/bus scheme: a bus service for Sundays and Bank holidays leaving Cambridge Rail Station, heading out through Barton Road and linking Burwash Manor, Wimpole Hall, Gamlingay Woods, Great Gransden Woods etc in a circular route. Short cycle routes to be developed around villages along the route. Cyclists can choose the length of journey they want to make and be assured of a ride home by bus if they do not wish to cycle back to Cambridge... A 24 cycle bike-trailer can be towed behind a 20 seater bus, providing sustainable tourism access to South Cambridgeshire and passenger transport services for settlements that do not currently have Sunday services. Please respond and state whether you would be interested in such a service.
When cycling west bound from Rope Walk into Eagle Street through the cycle filter (where cyclists are unaffected by the traffic signals except giving way to the traffic from the left), the width between the bollard and the kerb and the sudden left movement required make the travel through the junction more difficult especially when using bikes with trailers, cargo bikes. Ordinary bike users also find it difficult to use and will avoid it instead.
Proposals are coming forward for the redevelopment of part of the Cambridge University Pres Site as a single location for Cambridge Assessment. Some public engagement will apparently start in November
