  • King St - cycle route sorely needed

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    King St/Ellon Road is a main artery into Aberdeen.  We are advised that the traffic volumes due tot he AWPR have reduced and in order to lock in this benefit there need to be some urgency to utilise freed up road space to more sustainable forms of transport. 

    And no - the parallel NCR1 isn't suitable.  It's hilly with cobbles and have weird diverts.  as a tourist route through the university and Old Aberdeen, its fine.

  • Blackdog - distributor road pavement not cycleway

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    This is a 40mph distributor road which is currently fairly quiet.  But many houses are planned in this location.  It would have been helpful if the pavement has been built a bit wider and designated as a shared path/cycleway.  Even better would be an actual cycleway but we can press for that with the development.

  • Blackdog roundabout - not offically cycleway

    Created by Debra Storr // 1 thread

    The pavement around the Blackdog roundabout is the logical route for cyclist to transit from Blackdog towards Potterton and until the Blackdog-Murcar cycleway is built, those brave enough to venture onto the dual carriageway will use the pavements to get onto and off more suitable roads

    It would be helpful if the designation would change and the surface revisited. Pity is wasn't built wider to shared path standards.

  • Hounslow Opportunity Areas

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    The London Borough of Hounslow is consulting on the Local Plan Reviews for the Great West Corridor and West of Borough opportunity areas.  The Local Plans set out planning guidelines for major developments in the respective areas.  Each Plan includes a section on "Connecting People and Places" that covers transport aspects of developments.

    Steve Curran, the Leader of Hounslow Council, refers to the negative impacts of major roads crossing the Great West Corridor area in his foreword.  "Attractive alternatives to the private car" described in pp74-83 of the consultation document include improved walking and cycling infrastructure.  Proposals for two new rail links will be rather more expensive.

    Councillor Curran expresses concern about the environmental impact of a Third Runway at Heathrow Airport on the West of Borough area but also points out the regeneration opportunities.  "Attractive alternatives to the private car" described in pp78-85 of the consultation document include improved cycling and walking infrastructure.

  • A14 Roundabout J32 Works

    Created by Joe Adam // 1 thread

    The A14 works have closed the east side pavement/cyclepath for some amount of time.

    This either forces people to cross the rode via 4 toucan crossings (and cycle or walk up a very narrow stretch) which is technically not a cycle path I believe.  Alternatively people have to cycle on road across a busy 2 lane 60mph limit roundabout.

  • Northway Square, Rickmansworth

    Create an unsegregated cyclist/walker area in the paved area that was produced when the northern arm of Northway, Rickmansworth became traffic-free. Call it Northway Square. This would become the centre of Rickmansworth's cycling/walking network, with Bikeability level 2  routes leading:

    * To National Cycle Network Route 61 (The Colne Valley Trail at the Aquadrome), to Mill End, and to Maple Cross.

    * To Rickmansworth Station, to Chorleywood, and to The Cedars Estate,

    * To Croxley Green, via Three Rivers District Council's car park.

    Upgrade the existing public footpath to a bridleway so the route remains on the definitive map.

  • Tower Hamlets Transport Strategy 2019-2041

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 2 threads

    The draft Tower Hamlets Transport Strategy aims to improve the way we move around our borough.

    Tower Hamlets is one of the country's fastest growing boroughs. Our roads are the busiest in the UK.

    77 per cent of our residents are exposed to unsafe pollution levels, children in the borough have on average up to ten per cent less lung capacity and 43 per cent of Year 6 school children are overweight or obese.

    According to Public Health England, pollution is linked to increasing rates of asthma, heart disease, dementia, lung cancer and low birth weight.

    The new strategy aims to address these concerns and look at what the council and residents can do to make travel cleaner, safer and accessible for everyone. 

    Promoting walking and cycling is at the heart of plans to help meet the Mayor of London’s target that 90 per cent of all trips in the borough should be made on foot, by cycle or by using public transport by 2041.

    Over the next two months, the council will be asking all those who live and work in the borough to get involved, share their ideas and help shape the future of travel in Tower Hamlets.
