  • Brick Lane Liveable Streets consultation

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    The Council is committed to supporting Brick Lane’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and wants to use the investment of the Liveable Streets programme to support Brick Lane businesses and the local community in months and years ahead.

    Future Visualisation of Brick Lane(External link)

    These proposals have been developed on feedback based on residents, businesses and local community. We are consulting on these proposals now, so that if they are supported we can implement them in time for Summer to benefit businesses, the local community and visitors.

    Our proposals:

    • Pedestrianising sections of Brick Lane in the evenings and the weekends (Brick Lane will be open to all traffic before 5.30pm on weekdays) to support businesses to trade safely and make use of outside dining space.
    • Improving the accessibility of Brick Lane with dropped kerbs and new disabled parking spaces.
    • Enhancing the neighbourhood with improved lighting, planting and traffic calming measures to create a better and safer environment for the local community and visitors to walk and cycle around Brick Lane.
    • Installing new cycle hangars and cycle stands to encourage sustainable travel.
    • Creating accessible and safer school travel routes to improve air quality and road safety for children.

    What is being proposed?

    Three schemes have been developed to improve walking and cycling, create better public spaces, discourage through-traffic and improve air quality (click on each scheme to view details):

    Our proposals include environmental enhancements and traffic calming measures to improve accessibility and safety for all and to encourage active travel.

    Why are these proposals important?

    Brick Lane is an iconic area of London that attracts over 18,500 pedestrians every day. This space is also shared with over 4,000 vehicles, many of which use Brick Lane to cut through the area. This means they are not visiting local businesses, schools or places of worship but are significant contributors to the already unacceptable levels of air pollution and congestion along Brick Lane.

    School streets are central to our Brick Lane proposals to address key safety and air quality issues. Our initiatives will create accessible and safer school travel routes by reducing the number of cars polluting the school environment and improving road safety for children.

    These proposals are a key part of Tower Hamlets commitment to support Brick Lane’s economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and aims to attract more visitors to the area and support businesses to trade safely.

  • Proposed Trial Changes to Haverstock Hill and Rosslyn Hill

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden proposes the following measures:

    • New cycle lanes, protected by flexible wands, will be installed on both sides of Haverstock Hill and Rosslyn Hill (between Prince of Wales Road and Belsize Lane).
      • On the northbound side, cyclists will have to use the existing bus lane from Belsize Avenue on – the bus lane times will be made 24/7.
    • All parking and loading spaces are to be removed from this section of Haverstock and Rosslyn Hill to make space for the cycle lanes. Some will be replaced in side roads.
    • All pedestrian refuges at informal crossings are being removed to make room for the cycle lanes. Five of the existing ‘uncontrolled’ crossing points on Haverstock Hill will be replaced with four new zebra crossings and one new signalised crossing .
    • Shared use bus boarders will be deployed at the eight bus stops – bus stops will be moved into the carriageway to allow for the cycle lane to continue next to the kerb.
    • At the junctions with England’s Lane and Pond Street ‘pedestrian countdown’ facilities, ‘early release’ for bikes and extended ‘Advanced Stop Lines’  will be provided subject to approval from TfL
    • Timed loading bays (Mon-Sat 10 am - 2pm) along (on southbound side opposite Steeles Road Haverstock Hill  and full time loading bay opposite Belsize Lane.
    • If the consultation is agreed, cycle parking will be added at the shopping parades.

  • Camden Square Area Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    The Camden Square area is bounded by Camden Road, Camden Park Road-York Way, Agar Grove and St Pancras Way. Most of this area already benefits from some road closures made in the 1970s at junctions with Agar Grove (St Augustines Road, St Paul’s Crescent and Stratford Villas) and at junctions with Camden Road (Rochester Square and Cantelowes Road). But Murray Street is still used as a rat-run between Camden Road and Agar Grove.

    This consultation focuses on

    • The removal of the rat-run on Murray Street and of another potential rat-run via North Villas
    • Improvements to the cycle route that runs from Cliff Road, through Camden Square and on to Royal College Street.

    The rat-run reduction scheme proposes two filters:

    • A diagonal filter on Murray Street at the junction with Stratford Villas enforced by ANPR camera. (right turns into Camden Road from Murray Street will be permitted)
    • A filter with a removable bollard at the top of Camden Square west side which will become two-way for all vehicles.
    • Mandatory left turn signs where Camden Mews meets Camden Park Road.

    The proposals for improving the cycle route are:

    • Randolph Street with flow and contraflow cycle lanes protected by wands
    • Marked cycle crossings over Royal College Street at the junction with Randolph Street (with relocation of the bus stop to the south of this junction).
    • A radical improvement of the junction of Agar Grove, St Pancras Way and Randolph Street;
      • on each of the four arms of the junction, cycles will get a green at a stage in the signals where they can cross safely without conflict with motor vehicles.
      • pedestrians can obtain an all green stage on demand
      • the approach from Agar Grove will be in a lane protected by wands
    • A Tiger Crossing over Agar Grove at the southern end of Stratford Villas
    • Cliff Road: the contraflow lane will be moved behind the parked cars while the with flow lane runs with general traffic but all parking will be removed on this (the south) side.

  • Draft Sutton Sustainable Transport Strategy 2020-2025 Consultation

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    The draft document is linked right at the bottom of the consulation page, again here

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/15a9o8nCb5R9rs5iPINp8M2zrr3Qm-Axr/view

    from 1.3

    Everyone benefits from sustainable transport because it means that we are:
    • Keeping the air cleaner through alternative travel choices, such as walking, cycling to work, using public transport or using electric vehicles, while improving public health;
    • Improving safety for travellers, especially for people with disabilities, children, older residents and other vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists;

    1.13 In July 2019, the London Borough of Sutton declared a climate emergency, and pledged to make the borough carbon neutral. Air quality improvements and carbon reduction are byproducts of, and some of many reasons for, sustainable transport.

    from section 4

    Cycle mode share is low, 1.1% of all journeys and among the lowest share in London. 

    5.7 Essentially, more people in Sutton are choosing to use their car for journeys of less than 2km than anywhere else in London.

    See Section 6 re. cycling. 

    6.12 The existing number of cycling trips made each year in Sutton is 7,700, out of a total in outer London of 208,200 trips.
    However, there is a potential for 234,900 daily cyclable trips, which would mean that 3% of all borough journeys would be by cycle. This
    figure is higher than boroughs of similar size and population such as Harrow, Merton and Richmond upon Thames.
    6.13 As with walkable trips, Sutton also has the highest number of potentially cyclable trips per resident that are currently made by a motorised mode of travel22.

    Targets include

    Appendix F : no mention of cycleways

    also saw under Developer checklists:

    G6g) The Council, landowners, developers, infrastructure providers and funding agencies will work together to implement the place-based projects in the Sutton Public Realm Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (adopted January 2020).

  • Queen's Crescent Motor Traffic Free Environment Trial

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    The proposals will trial a motor traffic-free environment that reduces traffic volumes and speeds, supports the existing market and local businesses, and allows more space for social distancing, walking, and cycling. The proposals also include measures at the junction of Queen’s Crescent and Grafton Road to prevent rat running traffic from using Grafton Road and Vicar’s Road and create a safer and quieter environment for residents in that area.

    Camden have announced a consultation trial closures of Queen's Crescent (the market area) and Grafton Road. The resulting reduction in motor traffic will improve cycling conditions massively on Grafton Road in particular and in adjacent streets to a lesser extent. This, in conjunction with this scheme including the closure of Anglers Lane (decision to go ahead) should result in a sizeable LTN in all but name.

  • King Henry's Road area Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    This scheme is intended to reduce through traffic on King Henry’s Road and Elsworthy Road, both of which have ~ 2000 motor vehicle movements per day in each direction, 74% of which is through traffic. In addition, average speeds are well in excess of 20 mph.

    To stop the rat-running and to reduce the traffic volumes and speeds on King Henry’s Road and Elsworthy Road, Camden proposes the following point closures:

    • Elsworthy Road at the junction with Avenue Road
    • Elsworthy Road to the east of the junction with Elsworthy Rise
    • King Henry’s Road to the east of the junction with Elsworthy Rise

    In addition, Camden proposes:

  • Baynes Street Safe and Healthy Street Scheme

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is consulting on changes to Baynes Street which will prevent motor traffic (except buses, emergency and refuse vehicles) from using Baynes Street as a cut-through between St Pancras Way and Royal College Street.  They will be able to use Georgiana Street instead.

  • Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is proposing the following changes intended to improve bus journey times, cycling and pedestrian facilities:

    • A northbound 24/7 bus lane on Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue
    • An advanced stop line and early release for cyclists on Camden Park Road, at the junction with North Villas and Cliff Road, to improve cyclist priority at the junction
    • Removal of parking bays on Camden Park Road and double yellow lines within 10m of South Vilas junction
    • Wider footways for an increased waiting area for parents outside Torriano School, to aid social distancing
    • Remove parking bays to provide more footway space for parents/carers and children accessing Torriano School
    • Additional speed reduction measures along Torriano Avenue, such as more signage and improved speed bumps, to improve pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety

    But they have forgotten to consider removing the speed cushions in Camden Park Road

    The drawing also mentions the potential for vehicle activated speed signs on Torriano Avenue.

    BUT

    • No changes to the junction with Camden Road (the nearside lane will be used by left-turning motor vehicles). People cycling into Torriano Avenue need to be at the front of the ASL and go as fast as they can to reach the bus lane which starts again soon after the entry to Torriano Avenue (in the same place the cycle lane starts now).
    • There is the same left hook risk when passing Busby Crescent which urgently needs a filter (at least a ’No Entry’ but a closure would be better).
    • They don’t mention the railings outside the schools

  • Camden Council review of parking permits and parking charges

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is consulting on a review of its parking permits and parking charges

    Motivation: diesel vehicle ownership and trips have not reduced sufficiently to address the AQ impact.

    The proposed changes are from April 2021 unless stated otherwise.

    Residents Parking permits

    The diesel surcharge to be raised from 21.5% to 50% of the petrol vehicle permit price  (surcharge ranging from £65 to £237 per annum).

    The petrol vehicle permit price depends on CO2 emissions and ranges from £130-£274 p.a.

    Electric vehicles get free permits.

    Visitors permits

    Not mentioned in the consultation document so presumably remain the same e.g. £1.12 per hour.

    Car clubs

    The current permit price is £289. This will change to a price based on CO2 emissions with a diesel surcharge.

    The price for electric cars will be £86. The lowest CO2 emission polluter pays £289.

    Doctors’ permits

    The same charges as for a  Car Club vehicle.

    Paid for parking sessions

    Currently, the borough is divided into four areas each with different tariffs. The areas with the two lowest tariffs will be merged.

    CO2 emission based charging will be introduced and the diesel surcharge will be raised from 21.5% to 50%

    Electric vehicles pay from £2.40 to £4.14 per hour in areas 1 to 3 while the charge for petrol cars range from £3.43 (lowest polluter in the cheapest area) to £5.15 (highest polluter in most expensive area).

    Increased price for coaches £13.82 per hour.

    Maximum stay of 1 hour where there is currently no maximum and in CPZs with only 2 hours of operation.

    South of Euston Road maximum stay reduced from 2 to 1.5 hour. From April 2022.

    Motorcycle parking

    Discount electric m/c residents’ permit (to £22 p.a.) and increase the price of petrol ones (to £130 p.a.). They also have business permits and visitor permits.

    Convert all dedicated solo m/c bays to shared use with one of the various permits. No more free parking for m/cs.

    Paid for parking £3.42-£5.92 per hour for petrol and £1.72-£2.96 electric per hour.

  • Liveable Streets Old Ford Road West

    Created by Alex Jenkins // 1 thread

    Liveable Streets is a multi-million pound borough-wide street and public space improvement programme. It aims to improve the look and feel of public spaces in neighbourhoods across the borough and make it easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport. Tower Hamlets would like to hear your views on the proposals for the Old Ford Road West project area.

    We've listened to your concerns on issues including:

    • The volume and speed of vehicles in residential streets, impacting safety, air and noise pollution.
    • The need for better, cleaner and greener public spaces.
    • Hostile environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

    What is proposed and why are the proposals important?

    Four schemes have been developed to improve walking and cycling, create better public space, reduce through-traffic and improve air quality.

    We are proposing traffic changes and calming measures to make local streets safer for everyone. This includes crossing improvements, better street lighting, tree planting, and School Streets.

    Every day thousands of vehicles are travelling through the area and not stopping. These vehicles are contributing to the already unacceptable levels of air pollution on your streets, outside your schools and around your local shops. These proposals are also planned to work together with the approved Bethnal Green scheme and proposed changes in the Bow Liveable Streets area. This scheme in the Old Ford Road West area will provide essential links by creating improved active travel routes for everyone.

    The Liveable Streets proposals will help improve road safety, public spaces, and air quality. However to achieve this some local residents who want to drive may have to travel longer distances.

    All properties will still be accessible by vehicle, but people will also have greater choice on how they get around by removing barriers to walking and cycling.

  • South East Herts Growth and Transport Plan

    Created by JonC // 2 threads

    The South East Hertfordshire Growth & Transport Plan (SEGTP) is a new transport strategy to help direct and plan transport improvements and investment in Hertford, Ware, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Cheshunt and Waltham Cross, and to surrounding areas.

    This area faces significant levels of proposed new housing and employment development, with added pressure of new homes and jobs are also proposed in surrounding areas including Cambridgeshire, Essex, Greater London and the rest of Hertfordshire.

    Important transport links in this area include the M25, A10, A414, A119, B1197 and A1170 roads, the West Anglia Main Line railway line, the National Cycle Route 61 and a range of local and longer distance bus and coach services.

    To help ensure the transport network continues to work safely and efficiently, the GTP identifies packages of interventions, that could address current and future traffic congestion issues such as noise and poor air quality. Interventions can be small or large, and could be introduced now or in the future, depending on how complex they are and if enough funding is available.

  • Chesterton Recreation Ground - Wheeled Sports Facility

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    In 2017, councillors approved the use of Section 106 developer contributions for a new wheeled-sports facility on Chesterton recreation ground.

    We consulted on proposals in 2019. Your responses suggested support for the proposal, and identified some opportunities for improvement. We have revised the proposals to address these.

    The proposed facility is aimed at young people aged 4 to 14. It comprises a continuous circuit of turns and jumps, to appeal to a variety of wheeled-sports users including BMX and mountain bikes, skateboards and scooters, and roller skates.

    It’s aimed at beginners and users of intermediate skill, with the intention that they can graduate to using other, more challenging facilities elsewhere in Cambridge.

  • East Dulwich - Covid-19 Experimental Travel Measures

    Created by James London Cyclist // 0 threads

    Southwark is committed to quickly rolling out schemes to make travel safe and healthy as lockdown eases. The East Dulwich are has been identified as a priority.

    On the 30 June we installed Phase 1 of the East Dulwich Streetspace measures, which is a permeable road closure (a closure to all motor vehicles but not to cycles or pedestrians) on Melbourne Grove, south of Tell Grove.

    The East Dulwich Streetspace Phase 2 measures will be installed on 3rd September. Details of these are below and aim to re-purpose the street space for pedestrians, cyclists and the local community:

    • a permeable closure using planters (a closure to all motor vehicles but not to cycles or pedestrians) on Melbourne Grove at the junction with Grove Vale

    • a permeable closure using planters on Derwent Grove at the junction with Grove Vale

    • a permeable closure using planters on Elsie Road at the junction with Grove Vale

    • a permeable closure using planters on Tintagel Crescent at the junction with Grove Vale

    • a school street closure during school drop-off and pick-up on Tintagel Crescent and Elsie Road (residents and emergency services will still be permitted entry)

    We want to hear from you about the effects of these measures.
