  • Quieter Neighbourhoods Consultation - Fox Lane Area

    Hamish F // 0 threads

    Enfield Council are consulting on these Quieter Neighbourhood treatments for the Fox Lane area. (which includes the Lakes Estate). They include "encouragement" of a 20mph zone supported by enhanced signage using large planter boxes, road narrowing, continuous footways, road humps, "fake road humps" (!), and points no entry.

    Plus a school street.

    This proposal is interesting in that the location of the (many) planter boxes remains flexible and is an opportunity for a trial to see what works, or use additional boxes.

  • Quieter Neighbourhoods Consultation - Fernleigh Road Area

    Hamish F // 1 thread

    Enfield Council are consulting on these Quieter Neighbourhood treatments for the Fernleigh Road area. They include a 20mph zone supported by road narrowing and road humps, together with other measures to discourage rat-runs: no-left-turns, one way streets and point no entry.

    This residential area is currently affected by through-traffic seeking to avoid sets of traffic lights at Green Lanes/Bourne Hill and Green Lanes/Station Road.

  • Romford 20mph zone

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Havering council said:
    "We wrote to you on 21st October setting out a series of safety proposals for Romford town
    centre comprising of a 20mph zone for all streets within the Romford Ring Road (including
    some traffic calming measures) and some changes to road markings on various
    roundabouts on the Ring Road itself.
    We sent out over 2,500 letters to people in the area, but only received 8 responses with 4
    of these being from residents. This was reported to the Council’s Highways Advisory
    Committee on 6th December where the decision on the scheme was deferred in order for
    further discussions to take place with ward councillors.
    As a result of these discussions, it has been decided to provide a further period of
    consultation and any other comments received shall be reported to the Highways Advisory
    Committee on 7th February 2017.
    We would therefore like to extend the opportunity for you to provide any comments you
    may have to the postal address above, via our email address highways@havering.gov.uk
    or through an online form which we have provided at www.havering.gov.uk/consultations."

  • St Nicholas to Loke Road link

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    There's an OK cycleway alongside the Bawsey Drain from the Loke Road Junction but the link from the edge of the town centre 20mph zone isn't very good. The section between North Street and Loke Road involves negotiating your way across the multiple lanes of John Kennedy Road which is the northern approach to the town, or illegally using the narrow footway as many people do. This section is crying out for one of the three or four lanes to be given back to cycling and walking.

  • Downham Basil/Coriander/Bay 20mph

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Basil Drive, Coriander Road and Bay Walk are residential streets that probably should be a 20mph zone, at least to avoid sat-nav routing cars that way in preference to Rosemary Way.

  • Rickmansworth/Mill End-20mph

  • Usk Bridge traffic calming and pedestrian crossings

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 1 thread

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    If a foot/cycle bridge is not going to happen in the medium term, then how about some traffic calming measures to reduce driver's speed expectations over the bridge? Drivers who have just come of a dual carriage way at 70mph+ or have been zooming along the A40 at 60mph+ are suddenly sharing space with cyclists having had little warning that this is about to happen.

    We suggest deploying traffic calming measures, such as marked cycle ways, belisha beacon crossings (much needed anyway!) and signage making it clear that care is required. If the speed limit was clearly lower, many drivers will not be so aggressively trying to overtake cyclists.

  • Pentre Road

    Created by Sam Charrington // 0 threads

    The National Speed Limit currently applies on this very narrow lane. There should surely be be a 20mph limit here? Pentre Road runs along the tops of a number of residential streets on the edge of Abergavenny. It is popular with cyclists and pedestrians. Much of the lane is extremely narrow, with some blind bends, and it is not possible to drive safely along here faster than 20mph.

  • Sheen Lane Traffic Calming

    Created by Ross // 1 thread

    https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?gl=uk&mid=z-ea3VIs1n24.kfBnDgw-g7fg

    Sheen Lane provides access to a number of schools, yet is a busy route with no space allocated for cycling. It should be safe for children to make their way to the numerous local schools by bicycle, and it would open up access to Richmond Park for visitors who wanted to cycle from Mortlake Station. The junction with the South Circular is especially unpleasant for both cycling and walking, and deeply unwelcoming.

    How to do this: Raised zebra crossing at Vicarage Road, Palmerston Road and E Sheen Library, 20 mph signs to continue park speed limit to Mortlake station, removal of centre lane white lines, toucan crossing at A205 to allow cyclists to cross, with care, at same time as pedestrians, advanced stop boxes at level crossing and A205 junction, wider pavement on East side between York Way and Wayside - should be wide enough for a pushchair, improved signage and right turn access to North/South Worple Way - these are underused ward quiet routes leading to several primary schools and nurseries.
    Sheen Lane is a key route in the ward, cycle volume could increase dramatically with some minor road improvements. Calming and reducing traffic on Sheen Lane would encourage recreational and school commuting cyclists to use this route more frequently. Sheen Lane as a pleasant cycle route would provide quiet cycle link routes to many schools; Tower house, Thomson House, Sheen Mount, Barnes, Ibstock, Mary Magdalens and also link together tens of miles of Thames Path and Richmond Park traffic free routes that could be enjoyed by cyclists from 8 - 80. It would attract more recreational cyclists to get off at Mortlake station and spend money and time on our high street.

  • Progressing the LCC 2014 election campaign 'asks'

    Created by George Coulouris // 7 threads

    This issue is intended to act a repository for material that can be used to back-up the LCC's 2014 Local Election Campaign 'Asks'. There are 6 'asks' that were finalised and agreed at the LCC's AGM on 19 October 2013:

    1. Safe routes to schools
    2. Areas without through motor traffic (AWTTs)
    3. Protected space on main roads/major junctions
    4. Safe cycle routes via parks and canals (Greenways)
    5. 20mph speed limits
    6. Liveable town centres

    so we'll have 6 threads under this Cyclescape issue where we can collect explanations, discussions and most importantly concrete illustrations of what is meant by each ask.

  • Awkward Junction For Cyclists in 20 mph Zone

    Created by Sam Saunders // 1 thread

    Busy Ashton Road (a 20 mph road from the A3029) bends eastward into the commercial area of North Street, close to a well-used park. On the bend, immediately adjacent to a park entrance, Frayne Street brings one-way traffic from the north west, and allows cycles to travel in the opposite direction towards Cumberland Basin. Coronation Road has two way traffic on the north east side.

    A recently installed calming measure has narrowed the road on the bend, as shown in the picture. The irregular shape of the road that results has made the turn into Coronation Road awkward for cyclists and, as can be seen from the lower half of the picture, some cyclists take ad hoc routes to avoid the complication. Buses and large lorries also use the route into North Street and most vehicles take the bend at about 30 mph, despite the speed restriction.

    As a route for cyclists, there could be a continuous segregated lane alongside the park (perhaps shaving a metre from the park itself, crossing Frayne Road with priority and following Coronation Road eastbound. A large number of school children use the route along the park every day but only a very few use a bicycle.

  • School Road, Saltwood 20mph zone

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    Proposed 20mph speed limit along School Road, Saltwood. The design involves removing the buildout at the Brockhill Road junction and installing overrunnable humped buildouts at regular intervals on alternate sides of School Road. "Gate" features with kerb buildouts to restrict the road width will denote the start and end of the 20mph zone.

  • 20mph limits in Cambridge

    A 20mph limit in residential areas of Cambridge would vastly improve safety and enable more people to cycle. What extent should it cover and how can we achieve it?
