  • 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.

  • Camden - Tottenham Hale cycle route

    Created by Simon Munk // 4 threads

    At approximately 12km, this route would connect the town centres of Tottenham Hale, Seven Sisters and the Nag's Head, making it easier for people to make local journeys and use local services. The route would use both main roads and quieter back streets.

  • Roadworks: Gloucester Gate

    Created by John Chamberlain // 0 threads

    From January through June 2019, Gloucester Gate will be closed to all traffic including cycles. It is possible to get through on the footway (by dismounting). We are trying to get a better solution in place but in the meantime the only other options are to use Albany Street and Chester Gate (southbound) or Prince Albert Road and Macclesfield Bridge (westbound).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Kentish Town Planning Framework

    Created by John Chamberlain // 3 threads

    Camden are consulting on a proposed planning framework for the northwest part of Kentish Town. This essentially covers the Murphy’s and Regis Road sites and is designed to set parameters for when/if the sites are redeveloped. The consultation is at goo.gl/6GaJEd and is open for individual responses until December 7th.

    We will be putting in a response from Camden Cyclists so please use one of the threads to add your comments by the end of November. We are particularly focussed on cycle and pedestrian permeability.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Farringdon area - proposed walking and cycling improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden is consulting on proposals aimed at improving conditions for walking and cycling in the Farringdon area. They say these are part of a larger vision for the area which is a strip between Gray’s Inn Road and Farringon/Kings Cross Road; bounded on the south side by Holborn and on the north side by Swinton Street.

  • Holborn Junctions Road Safety and Public Realm Proposals

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    The consultation refers to a long-term aim to remove the Holborn gyratory within which there is very little provision for cycling.

    In the meantime it proposes some long-awaited safety measures at the Vernon Place junctions and some mainly pedestrian improvements at the Holborn tube station junction.

  • 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.
