  • Cycling on Camden Road

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    TfL officers told us last November that they have a project to improving conditions for cyclists on Camden Road. This would include "investigating the feasibility of a northbound mandatory cycle lane; a wide bus and cycle lane southbound and the removal of two- lane flares at junctions". They assumed a 12m road width, suggesting 6m for a pair of general traffic lanes together with a 2m cycle lane and 4 m bus +cycle lane.

    They are now inviting CCC to a meeting to discuss cycling on the TLRN in Camden, and also take the opportunity to walk along Camden Rd to further discuss the corridor scheme they’re progressing. On further enquiry they said:
    "We would prefer to take the opportunity to engage with CCC as an independent stakeholder, separate from LB Camden, in order to fully understand the campaign’s ambitions for the TLRN."

    So....
    1. Let's clarify what we would want on Camden Road (without taking on TfL's assumption that there must be a bus lane. And being realistic as to what might fit in at a junction. The above photo shows a potential left hook situation.

    2. Can I have volunteers to join me on this walk/talk.

  • Hatton Garden cycle permeability schemes: St Cross Street and Saffron Street

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    St Cross Street

    St Cross street runs from Farringdon Road, across Saffron Hill to Hatton Garden. It is currently one-way westbound between Saffron Hill to Hatton Garden.

    The consultation proposes two-way cycling all the way through while reducing the short section between Saffron Hill and Farringdon Road to one-way eastbound for motor vehicles (with a cycle contraflow lane).

    Saffron Street

    Saffron Street connects Saffron Hill with Farringdon Road and currently the western end (as far as Onslow Street) is one-way eastbound.

    The consultation proposes two-way cycling all the way through while Saffron St is closed to motor traffic between Saffron Hill and Onslow Street in order to safely facilitate two-way cycling, and to create an improved environment for pedestrians.

  • Consultation: Prince of Wales Road/ Kentish Town Road and Anglers Lane

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    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.

  • Heath Street/East Heath Road/West Heath Road junction Proposed Improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    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

  • Prince of Wales Road Walking, Cycling and Road Safety Improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden is consulting on proposed improvements on Prince of Wales Road. They note that the majority of the collisions in the last 36 months have taken place at the Prince of Wales Road/ Haverstock Hill junction and the Malden Road/ Prince of Wales junction and have involved vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and powered two-wheelers).

    Camden notes that TfL’s Strategic Cycling Analysis (SCA) identifies Prince of Wales Road as in the top 5-10% of roads in the London with the highest cycle flows. Also, the SCA identifies Prince of Wales Road as having high potential to contribute towards addressing London’s greatest cycling needs, through forming part of a wider cycling network.

    The proposed measures include:

    - improvements at the junctions with Malden Road and Haverstock Hill

    - a westbound segregated cycle track

    Camden states that there is not sufficient road width for a cycle track in both directions without removing a substantial amount of residents’ parking. They propose a design for a westbound cycle track with stepped tracks, floating bus stops and with parking bays outside the track.

  • Consultation on Princeton Street Traffic Improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Princeton Street runs between Bedford Row and Red Lion Square. It crosses over Red Lion Street which is on the useful north-south cycle route from Kings Cross down to Holborn.

    Princeton Street is one-way westbound for motor traffic between Red Lion Street and Red Lion Square. Cyclists are already allowed to cycle in both directions, entering Princeton Street from Red Lion Square via a ‘plug’ (a short section of cycle track) separated by an island so as to bypass the No Entry sign.

    This proposal is to close to motor vehicles a short section of Princeton Street on approach to its junction with Red Lion Square.

    This will be achieved by means of three bollards at the junction of Red Lion Square

  • Play Street consultations

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 3 threads

    From time to time, we receive consultations on Play Streets and rather debating each one as it comes in, I think it could be helpful to have a policy as to whether CCC want to respond as a group and the position we should take.

    Play Streets are achieved by the occasional closures of a stretch of road to enable children to play (e.g. twice a month for a couple of hours).
    The road closures are usually operated by local residents using ‘road closed’ signs, advanced warning signs and barriers.

    Play Streets are not directly connected to cycling. But, as they may give people an idea that it would improve the area to have longer term road closures, I would like to support such schemes.

  • Planning application Morrisons Superstore & Camden Goods Yard Chalk Farm

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    We are somewhat late in spotting this so the deadline for comments is close. This is the detailed Planning Application for the very large redevelopment project in Chalk Farm Goods Yard - AKA the Morrisons Supermarket site. The full details on Camden's website are available at the URL shown.

    We have already responded to the 'Framework Proposa'l demanding a through cycle route from Oval Road (Gilbey's Yard), to Chalk Farm Road.

    The list of documents for this detailed application is huge and we have only looked at a fraction of them but we did find this paragraph in document D0 Environmental Statement Non-Technical Summary (http://camdocs.camden.gov.uk/HPRMWebDrawer/Record/6695061/file/document?inline):
    "4.23 Cyclists would access the proposed development on the MS parcel using a segregated cycle path from Chalk Farm Road, following the same route a vehicles along Stephenson Street. As the centre of the proposed development would be pedestrian only, cyclists would be required to dismount before continuing on the proposed development. The cycle route would also provide connectivity through to Gilbeys Yard following Engine House Way and Winding Vaults Way."

  • Consultation on Proposed changes to footway, crossovers, zebra crossing and park

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Hawley Road (+ southern end of Castlehaven Road) runs one way eastbound and is on the north side of a small clockwise gyratory on Kentish Town Road, Hawley Crescent and Camden High Street. Hawley Road is just to the north of Regents’ Canal.

    The Camden Lock area has recently been redeveloped to provide a new school for Hawley Primary as well as housing. During this development the southern footway and adjacent parking places were closed.

    The scheme under consultation tidies up and widens the southern footway and permanently removes the former parking places.

  • Don't pedestrianise Fitzrovia - make it access only

    Created by linus // 1 thread

    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.

  • Consultation: Tufnell Park junction revisions

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    Revised description following release of the Consultation (on 14 December 2018):


    The proposals for this junction includes the following major changes:



    1. Widening the footway surrounding the entrance to the underground station, both on Tufnell Park Road and Brecknock Road, as well as the western footway of Dartmouth Park Hill (near Burghley Road where the school pupils congregate after school).

    2. Removal of central islands on all roads at the junction. This allows for more road space to be given to mark a dedicated cycle lane on approach to the junction where cyclists are more vulnerable or in some cases to provide an additional traffic lane to reduce delay to buses.

    3. Implementing two new diagonal crossings providing a direct link from east to west, from the school side to the bus stops on Tufnell Park Road and the underground station. These would allow pedestrians to cross in one stage instead of crossing two roads before reaching their destination.

    4. Widening the existing crossings to accommodate more pedestrians to cross comfortably at the same time.

    5. Extend double yellow lines on the western side by 16m up to 227/229 Brecknock Road to prevent vehicles parking at this location which will result in traffic congestion due to narrow width of carriageway

    6. Banning the right turn from Junction Road into Dartmouth Park Hill.

    7. Marking advanced cycle stoplines on all approaches including mandatory cycle feeder lanes on Junction Road and Tufnell Park Road.

    8. Banning the left turn from Brecknock Road into Fortess Road.

    9. Provision of a ‘Keep Clear’ road markings opposite Burghley Road to assist with cyclists turning right out of the side road.

    10. Provision of pedestrian countdown timers and a pedestrian only stage allowing pedestrians to cross all roads whilst all other traffic is stopped.

  • Camley Street - Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS)

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Email consultation:

    We are seeking your views on the Council’s proposal to introduce a sustainable drainage system (SuDS) on the southern end of Camley Street between the rail bridge and the junction with Goods Way. SuDS help to reduce flood risk, improve water quality and take pressure off the sewer network. In addition to managing surface water runoff, SuDS can contribute towards building the place function of streets, increasing biodiversity and better water and air quality.
     
    We have been exploring options for incorporating SuDS on the public highway throughout the London Borough of Camden, and as part of this propose to establish this pilot project on Camley Street. If implemented, it is hoped this scheme will set a precedent for other interventions in the borough, and increase SuDS awareness and knowledge within Camden.
     
    The Council’s flood risk modelling indicates that Camley Street is an area of elevated flood risk, particularly the southern end near the junction with Goods Way. In response to this, the Council is proposing to introduce SuDS rain gardens on Camley Street. Rain gardens are planted areas that allow rainwater to be collected, stored and filtered into the groundwater system. The proposed rain gardens on Camley Street will include the following features:
     
    ·         a 2m wide linear bioretention raingarden along the western kerbline – a planted feature with freely infiltrating soils and storage layers beneath that will collect all the rainwater  from the carriageway and western footway.

    ·         the width of the carriageway will be reduced to 6m and the footway on the western side of the road reduced to a width of 2m, over a total gross length of approximately 180m. This is to allow for the 2m wide rain gardens. The road markings and formal parking provision (three disabled bays) on Camley Street will not change.

    ·         existing vehicle access points on the western side of the footway will be retained, and pedestrian crossing points will be designed in at appropriate intervals.

    ·         the SuDS system will be designed to deal with a 1 in 30 year flood event.
     
    It is our view that introducing SuDS on Camley Street will improve the streetscape and experience of Camley Street in the following ways:
    ·         reduced flood risk
    ·         reduced reliance on the sewer network
    ·         general visual enhancement
    ·         increased separation of vehicles and pedestrians
    ·         air quality improvements for pedestrians
    ·         biodiversity enhancement
    ·         additional planting and greater contact with nature
     
    The scheme is being funded through Thames Water, as part of the London Strategic SuDS Pilot Study, and funding from Section 106 contributions.

  • Consultation on Goldhurst Terrace Pedestrian Crossing Improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    This consultation refers to the double junction of Goldhurst Terrace with Greencroft Gardens and Broadhurst Gardens.

    This complex junction is composed of a collection of one-way motor traffic runs:

    - westbound traffic runs from Finchley Road along Goldhurst Terrace

    - some of which then turns right onto Broadhurst Gardens.

    - the remainder continues in a SSW direction on Goldhurst Terrace towards South Hampstead

    - Greencroft Gardens has one-way NE bound motor traffic up to the junction with Broadhurst Gardens.

    and contraflow cycling accessed via the (lower) junction of Goldhurst Terrace.

    The proposals are

    - to introduce raised tables at four informal pedestrian crossings

    - to widen footway at three of the crossings

  • Camley Street - proposed pedestrian improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Last July, a new bridge over Regent’s Canal opened to pedestrians and people on bikes. It links Camley Street beside the Nature Reserve with the Kings Cross development area e.g. Granary Square and University of the Arts.

    This very useful new link is bringing additional people into Camley Street and many of them will cross the road to access the bridge or the Nature Reserve using a desire line close to the end of the railway bridge. The alignment of the road (Camley Street) includes a sharp turn where it goes under the railway bridge.

    Camden proposes to install a raised table (at footway level) from the end of the railway bridge and past the entrances to the new footbridge and the Nature Reserve with a view to reducing vehicle speeds at the corner. The entrance to St Pancras Cruising Club is also included in the raised area.

  • Midland Road and Euston Road / Judd Street Junction (North – South CS link)

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    This joint TfL/Camden consultation takes the North – South Cycle Superhighway across Euston Road and continuing with a section of central London grid on Midland Road to join the existing southern extension of the Royal College Street route.

    It includes:
    - Cycle-only green signal to allow cyclists to cross Euston Road separately from motor traffic
    - Two-stage right turn areas to allow cyclists to access Judd Street and Midland Road without crossing lanes of moving traffic

    and two options for Judd Street:
    Option 1 – Full closure of Judd Street at Euston Road / Midland Road junction to allow a dedicated cycle crossing across Euston Road
    Option 2 – Judd Street entry only for motorists from Midland Road, with segregated northbound contraflow cycle track

  • Camden 'Quick Wins' - Phase 2

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    You probably remember that we began a new 'Quick Wins' campaign in November 2013.
    http://camdencyclists.org.uk/camden/campaigns/quick-wins

    I asked members for their suggestions for (very) minor improvements throughout the borough that will make cyclists feel better catered for. These are examples of the type of changes that Camden felt could be implemented without consultation of local residents/businesses:

    ⁃ dropped kerbs
    ⁃ obstructive barriers (i.e. anti-motor cycle barriers)
    ⁃ stretches of poor road surface
    ⁃ Feeders into ASLs that are too short or non-mandatory

    The response from members was very good and we were able to assemble a list of suggestions and submit it to Camden in November 2013. Camden responded by assigning an officer to work on the entire list and he has worked hard to progress them.

    The web page linked above includes a table showing the list of 17 suggestions that were submitted to Camden, updated to show the five suggestions that we know for sure to have been completed (those table entries are in italic with completion date and a photo). There may be one or two other items in the list that have been completed - I haven't been to check all of them recently ;-) I would be very grateful to anyone who can give me up-to-date information on the status of the other items.

    Several other minor changes that we have suggested, outside the 'Quick Wins' list have also been completed this year.

    As far as I know Camden still intend to progress most of the remaining items. It is worth noting that some of these relatively minor changes received significant 'push-back' from locals, making the process slower and more expensive than it might have been.

    We and Camden are still very positive about this campaign. Camden are now asking us for a set of 'Phase 2' suggestions. The criteria for this are likely to include the types of changes suggested in the first phase but also include some new ones.

    We are still clarifying with Camden the new categories that can be classified as 'quick wins' (i.e. can be implemented without consultation). They may include:

    ⁃ widening cycle lanes or converting them to mandatory (i.e. replacing a dashed with a solid white line). In some cases this might be a first step towards installing lightweight segregation.
    ⁃ widening existing cycle lanes where there is limited traffic impact.
    ⁃ widening bus lanes to 4.5m to allow safer overtaking of buses by cycles and vice-versa.
    ⁃ adding cycle lanes that link up sections of bus lane.
    ⁃ trial lane closures to provide better space for cycling.
    ⁃ more 2-way cycling on side roads.

    I would be grateful for your feedback, commenting on the categories of changes or preliminary suggestions for actual changes.

    I plan to construct a new list for submission to Camden in October, but I would be grateful for concrete suggestions by mid-September.

    It helps if you can provide a link to the relevant location on Google maps. A photo is even more helpful.

  • Brunswick Square Walking and Cycling Improvements

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    Camden says: "To be delivered as part of the Central London Cycle Grid, the key aspect of this scheme proposes a road closure that would restrict access for motor vehicles between Lansdowne Terrace and Brunswick Square at the junction with Bernard Street. This closure allows us to create a large pedestrian-only area, provide a new cycle track, simplify the road layout and rejuvenate the area around the square."

    This scheme removes a mini-gyratory and links well with these two consultations for the North - South Cycle Superhighway:

  • Maygrove Road - Road Safety Measures

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Following concerns about drivers exceeding the 20 mph limit, Camden proposes as a short term measure to build a raised table at the junction of Maygrove Road and Ariel Road. (There is already a table at the junction with Fordwych Road and speed humps at regular intervals. )

    They go on to say that longer-term measures are being considered to better manage the traffic levels on Maygrove Road and they invite respondents to state their concerns and to make suggestions for these longer-term measures that will be consulted on in the future.

    Since Maygrove Road is on the proposed alignment of Quietway 3 and is anyway useful cycling link this is an opportunity to make a case for improvements and in particular filtering.

    The plan can be downloaded from

  • Beckford School – consultation on road safety improvements, Dornfell Street

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    There are four entrances to Beckford School on the south side of Dornfell Street (for infants, nursery, main and juniors going from west to east). Dornfell Street is one-way westbound – there should be a cycle exception.

    Currently there is ‘School Keep Clear’ marking on the south side of the street outside the nursery and junior entrances while there are two disabled parking bays outside the main entrance. Most of the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings will be replaced by a wider footway.

    The consultation proposes the following measures:

    1. Widen the footway on the north side of the Dornfell Street opposite the nursery entrance (losing one parking space)

    2 Remove the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings and widen the footway outside the nursery entrance. But provide two new parking bays at the western end (i.e. the widened footway doesn’t cover all of the space occupied by the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings.

    3. Widen the footway on the south side of the Dornfell Street outside the junior entrance, leaving the two existing disabled parking bays outside the main entrance.

    4. Install secure cycle parking (Bikehangar - Cyclehoop or Asgard) at the east end of the street – north side.

  • Brecknock School – consultation on road safety improvements, Cliff Villas

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Cliff Villas is a residential road linking Cliff Road and Camden Park Road.

    The school’s main entrance and the nursery entrance are on the east side of Cliff Villas. The footway is already widened outside the and opposite the main entrance. But it is narrow between the main entrance and the nursery entrance.

    The consultation proposes the following measures:

    1. Make Cliff Villas one way from Camden Park Road to Cliff Road but allow cyclists to travel along it in both directions.

    2 Widen the footway between the main entrance and the nursery entrance to the school on Cliff Villas – resulting in the loss of 7 parking spaces.

    3. A parking occupancy survey was undertaken and the results showed that less than 70% of the parking capacity is being used. Therefore, only one parking space of the seven spaces lost in proposal 2 will be relocated. The double yellow lines located near the main entrance to the school will be converted into one permit holder parking space – gain of 1 parking space.

    4. Shorten the widened footway opposite the main entrance to the school to provide secure cycle parking. Install secure cycle parking (Bikehangar - Cyclehoop or Asgard).

  • Healthy School Streets: Acland Burghley School; Proposed Walking, Cycling and Ro

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Students of Acland Burghley use the gate on Burghley Road in the morning; a majority of these who walk to school arrive from Dartmouth Park Hill and Tufnell Park junction. In the afternoon, students leave by a gate on Ingestre Road, from where most of them make their way through Burghley Road to Dartmouth Park Hill and Tufnell Park junction.

    This set of proposals is related to creating a Healthy School Street outside Acland Burghley School. This will prohibit motor vehicles from entering the section of Burghley Road between Dartmouth Park Hill and Oakford Road during school term time, Monday – Friday between 8:00-9:00am and 3:00-4:00pm.

    The restriction will be enforced through the provision of signs and by ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras located at each end of the restricted area. (So there's no need to have a one-way street)

    The following other supporting measures are proposed:

    • Widen the eastern footway on the north side of Ingestre Road by the school gate – moving four parking bays to the other side of the road. (See Plan C)

    • Move a Car Club bay from the restricted area in Burghley Road into a location in Oakford Road. (See Plan A and B)

    • Retain the existing width restriction in Burghley Road and raise the road to footway level. (See Plan C)

    • widen the footway on both sides by the school gate, paint double yellow lines; and resite the cycle strands the width restriction Burghley Road.

  • Consultation on Cycling Improvements on Arlington Road

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Arlington Road runs parallel to Camden High Street on the west side and it forms part of a route that we once named as LCN 6a. See on map above where the original route continues south via Mornington Crescent and Hampstead Road.

    Unfortunately the measures proposed are very disappointing:
    - all that is offered is the removal of car parking on the southern approach to the Parkway junction to accommodate queueing traffic.

  • Permanent Timed Road Close on Macklin Street (St Joseph’s Primary School)

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    This consultation proposes to make permanent the first Healthy Streets scheme in Camden, which is at St Joseph’s School in Macklin Street, Covent Garden.

    An experimental timed closure was implemented in July 2016 through the use of street signage reinforced by a retractable bollard managed by school staff.  

    Camden notes that since the trial was introduced, the number of parents driving their children to school has reduced; and the school and some of its parents have also reported that they feel safer walking with their children to and from school.

  • Consultation: Euston Station Area Planning Principles

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    Camden are consulting on the long-term future of the area around Euston station area:
    "Euston station is changing, with HS2 Ltd preparing for construction, and Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and Transport for London also thinking about how to design the station.
    We are preparing a plan for development in the Euston station and tracks area with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, which will both inform, and be informed by, emerging designs for the stations at Euston."

    The perspective is long-term, but the timeline (http://www.eustonareaplan.info/timeline/) calls for the finalisation of a Planning Brief by Spring 2018. This initial consultation is on the design principles. It will inform a detailed brief that will be the subject of further consultation in early 2018 and finalised in summer 2018.

    We (Camden Cycling Campaign) intend to submit a response to this initial consultation. Please take a look at the Key Principles - Euston Station Area Planning Brief 220517.pdf document and make your suggestions for ensuring that the area will become a much better cycling environment.
