  • Twyford Abbey Road - Road Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    The proposed improvements include:


     Refreshing the existing loading restrictions and the advisory cycling lanes in Abbey Road
    to make them safer for cyclists and to prevent vehicles from parking on them
     Providing new mandatory cycling lanes in Rainsford Road to link the industrial area to the
    existing Grand Union Cycling Route and to improve connectivity cycling lanes in the area
     Providing new vehicle activated LED electronic signs to slow traffic and improve safety, for
    pedal cyclists and motorcycles
     Improving road safety at the junction of Twyford Abbey Road with Rainsford Road by
    extending the existing raised table, narrowing the carriageway width and providing onfootway cycling lane. This will slow traffic turning speed at the junction and get cyclists out of
    the way of heavy vehicles turning movement and hence improve safety for all road users
     Making crossing the road safer for vulnerable road users at the junction of Twyford
    Abbey Road with Rainsford Road by providing a zebra crossing
     Providing new direction signs where necessary to guide cyclists and pedestrians
    We will also take this opportunity to review all signs and street furniture to de-clutter and
    improve the streetscape. The enclosed drawing provides details of the proposals.

  • Furness Road Junction Improvement Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    Furness Road Junction Improvement Scheme

    Who is consulting?

    Highways & Infrastructure

    Why are we consulting?

    Each year we identify roads in Brent which have the highest numbers of recorded Personal Injury Accidents (PIA’s). We then consider the introduction of road safety measures to help reduce the number of accidents.

    The junction of Furness Road with Harlesden High Street and Harrow Road has been identified as a location with a high number of accidents. Over the last 3 years there have been 9 traffic accidents recorded at the junction. 1 accident resulted in serious injury and 8 accidents resulted in slight injury. 3 accidents involved a pedestrian, 2 involved a pedal cyclist and 2 involved motorcyclists.

    The existing pedestrian facilities at this junction are also inadequate. The only protected pedestrian phase is across the southern arm of High Street Harlesden, with no formal crossings across all other approach arms to this very busy junction. Also most pedestrians tend to cross the junction on the north side of High Street Harlesden, which is not a protected and formal crossing.

    The other problem with this junction is the Furness Road approach. This is only a single lane approach with a free flowing, uncontrolled traffic movement for left-turning traffic. The right turning traffic obstructs the free flowing left-turning traffic even though it is uncontrolled. This is mainly due to the single lane approach to the junction holding the left-turning traffic which then causes long tail backs on Furness Road on daily basis, particularly during the peak hour periods. We are therefore proposing to introduce a comprehensive set of measures to reduce the number of traffic accidents and also improve junction capacity.

  • Stag Lane & Roe Green Local Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    "Over the last 3 years there have been 26 traffic accidents recorded in Stag Lane resulting in 31 casualties. These casualties included 10 vehicle passengers, 9 vehicle drivers, 6 motorcycle riders, 4 cyclists and 2 pedestrians. 

    A 20 mph speed limit on Stag Lane and Roe Green between Mollison Way and Kingsbury Road designed to be self-enforcing through the introduction of traffic calming measures

     Speed cushions on Stag Lane and Roe Green which are narrow enough to allow a wide wheel based vehicle such as fire engine or an ambulance to pass relatively unhindered. A smaller wheel base vehicle such as a car however would need to have at least one set of wheels on some part of the cushion. Speed cushions have proved very effective in helping to reduce vehicle speeds.

     New pedestrian refuge islands on Stag Lane, by Carlisle Road and Goldsmith Lane to provide additional safe crossing points for pedestrians.

     Footway widening (kerb build outs) at the junction of Carlisle Road and Tewkesbury Gardens to slow traffic and reduce crossing widths for pedestrians.

     2 variable message speed signs to advise drivers to slow their speed.

     The installation of short sections of double yellow line “At Any Time” waiting restrictions at the Harrod Court vehicle access to the clinic. "

  • Ealing Road Local Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    The council proposes the following:

     20mph Speed Limit– A new 20mph speed limit will be introduced on Ealing Road from Wembley High Road to Mount Pleasant. Eight electronic vehicle activated 20mph and speed indicator signs will be installed at regular intervals to advise drivers about the 20mph speed limit and their current speed;

     Traffic Calming Features – Six new raised speed tables will be provided to reduce vehicle speeds and improve crossing facilities for pedestrians;

     New Zebra Crossings – 2 new raised speed tables & zebra crossings and 1 raised existing zebra crossing will replace the existing traffic island and speed cushions. This will provide more opportunities for pedestrians to cross safely between the traffic flows.

  • Kensal Triangle Area Proposed 20mph zone

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    Brent Council says: "Over the last 3 years (01/03/2015 and 28/02/2018) there have been 9 traffic accidents recorded involving 10 casualties in the mentioned area. One accident was fatal and a total of eight accidents were slight. The casualties involved were as follows; 1 vehicle driver, 1 passenger, 2 cyclists and 6 pedestrians. Speed surveys carried out last year also show that speeding occurs particularly in Wakeman Road and Rainham Road.

    Speaking to your local resident association and ward councillors, we understand that there is a great interest from local community in introducing 20mph speed limits in all the streets within the Kensal Triangle area shown in the plan at the back of the page. We have been told that local residents want their streets to be safer, discourage drivers using the area as a rat run, and make their roads accessible to cyclists and pedestrians.

    As a result of our discussions, we are therefore proposing to introduce a set of measures to encourage slower vehicle speeds and to reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents in the area."

  • Kingsbury Town Centre Proposed Public Realm Improvement Scheme

    Henry Lancashire // 1 thread

    Brent Cyclists are preparing a response to this consultation and are seeking comments.

    Brent Council State:
    "In March 2017 Brent Council consulted on Kingsbury Town Centre improvement scheme. Although the proposed improvements were supported, during the consultation period we have received a number of comments and suggestions from local businesses, residents, Ward Councillors, as well as other stakeholders such as London Buses and Brent Cyclists. Based on these comments and suggestions I am pleased to inform you that we have managed to secure additional funding to develop an alternative scheme which addresses these comments and concerns. We are therefore consulting again on the below revised proposals. These proposals align with the aspirations of the Imagine Kingsbury study which set out the community’s vision for improving Kingsbury Town Centre over the next 5 -15 years."

  • Carton Vale proposed cycling and pedestrian improvements

    Created by David Arditti // 1 thread

    The consultation on this is now out: see http://brent-consult.objective.co.uk/portal/ens/carlton_vale_walking__cycling_improvements

    This is a scheme for which Brent Cyclists has been campaigning for some years. See also here for campaign context
    http://www.brentcyclists.org.uk/content/campaign-success-brent-plans-its-first-road-segregated-cycle-route

    While this scheme does not do all we would like here it is a major step forward for the borough, which has no effective cycle infrastructure to speak of and lags behind adjacent LAs in cycling. Hence we would like to see it go through.
