  • Pears Road, Hounslow

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    LBH says:

    As part of the redevelopment of Hounslow Town Primary School, we are proposing public realm improvements on Pears Road. We would like to get your views on a number of proposals, including:

    • Permanently closing the emergency access outside the school on Pears Road by constructing a raised shared pedestrian and cycle area 
    • Installing dropped kerbs and bollards at both ends of the new raised area to provide cycle access and prevent vehicle access

  • Goodwill junction redesign, Harrow

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council is proposing to redevelop the Headstone Gardens / Harrow View / Headstone Drive traffic light junction to provide a pedestrian phase. All right turns will be banned at the junction to enable this to happen, and all pedestrians will cross at the same time (single-stage crossings). However, this route is a desire line for cycling (especially east-west) but cycling is not accommodated in this design - there are no segregated cycling facilities.

  • Madison Square Garden (MSG) Sphere Planning Application

    Created by jrothwell // 2 threads

    The Madison Square Garden Company proposes to build a new entertainment venue, "the MSG Sphere", adjacent to Angel Lane and Montfichet Road in the Olympic Park.

    They have proposed a two-way cycle track at pavement level on Montfichet Road past Westfield, and to narrow the carriageway on Angel Lane (removing the current advisory cycle lane.) A small amount of visitor cycle parking is proposed.

    From LLDC's planning page:

    In March 2019, the Planning Policy and Decisions Team received a planning application for a large-scale live music and entertainment venue from The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG). The proposal is for a spherical shaped building next to Stratford Station that would provide an auditorium (capacity for up to 21,500 people), a music venue, nightclub, members lounge, restaurants, bars, and new bridges to create pedestrian connections across the site amongst other things.

    The building is a first for London because externally the spherical building would be composed of a ‘skin’ of LED’s. These LED’s would be programmable and could display images on the surface of the building including adverts.

    Application Documents 

    A detailed planning application and has been submitted which comprises a number of plans, drawings and documents that can be viewed on our website. An advertisement consent has also been submitted which comprises a number of plans and a design statement which is also available on our website.

    Both applications can all be viewed via the Planning Application Register, using the following reference numbers:

    • Full Planning Application: 19/00097/FUL
    • Advertisement Consent Application: 19/00098/ADV

    How can I comment 

    If you have any comments about the MSG Sphere proposal, please write to the Planning Policy and Decisions Team by Friday 28 June 2019. Comments must be submitted in writing via email or post:

  • Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood - First engagement (commonplace)

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood aims to realise the great potential Brixton has for walking and cycling while improving air quality, reducing congestion, supporting local businesses and providing for the growth in jobs and homes planned for the area.

    We successfully bid for funding from Transport for London (TfL) to deliver these aims. At the heart of our proposal is transforming Atlantic Road in the town centre, but the ambition goes well beyond this, with proposals to create ‘low traffic neighbourhoods’ in adjacent residential areas that link communities together and ‘healthy routes’ for walking and cycling. Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood is the cornerstone of Lambeth’s Draft Transport Strategy, which seeks to allow people to live healthier lives and create better places for everyone to enjoy.

    This is the first stage of consultation, collecting resident and user comments about the area.

  • Cycle route extension on Bath Road, Hounslow

    Created by Hounslow Cycling Campaign // 1 thread

    LBH says [edited]:

    The London Borough of Hounslow is proposing to make changes to a section of Bath Road, running between the Great West Road (A4) and Vicarage Farm Road, in order to make the road safer for cyclists and pedestrians. 

    We recently completed the Hounslow West Cycle and Highway Safety Improvements on Bath Road and now propose to extend the cycle route from Vicarage Farm Road junction westwards to the junction with the A4.  This proposal is to create a safer cycle lane mostly segregated from motor vehicles and pedestrians  ...  As well as the proposed cycle measures, this project aims to improve pedestrian safety by introducing raised entry treatments on all side road junctions along the route, enhancing existing pedestrian crossing facilities along this section of Bath Road and adding a Parallel Crossing (pedestrian & cycle) adjacent to Springwell Road.  In addition, some changes are proposed to the existing bus stop eastbound, introducing a floating island to avoid conflict with cycle and pedestrian movements.  To provide these cycle lanes there will be some localised road widening required on Bath Road and to improve current traffic flows where Bath Road meets the A4 junction.  ... Looking beyond this project it is this Council's aim to extend these cycle proposals to link with Hounslow Town Centre.

    The A3006 Bath Road is part of the Strategic Road Network within Hounslow and as such is an important and heavily used traffic corridor. The personal injury accident record on this section of road is higher than the borough average with 26 injury accidents over the last five years, five involving pedestrians (including two serious), five involving motor bikes and three involving cyclists.

  • Proposed improvements between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL says:

    We want your views on our proposals to transform roads in west London through four connected neighbourhood improvement schemes between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate.

    The proposals are an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy. The proposals are guided by the Mayor's Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant. The proposals are also an important part of the Mayor's Walking and Cycling Action Plans. These complementary plans set out how we and London boroughs will work to increase the number of people walking and cycling, helping to address poor air quality and congestion, while improving infrastructure to make walking and cycling even easier, safer and more accessible for everyone.

    These proposals would provide benefits for road users and communities in these areas, making it easier to cross busy roads, removing through traffic on some residential roads and offering a segregated space for people to cycle in west London. They would form part of London’s emerging cycling network and create a more appealing street environment for everyone to enjoy.

    The proposals include:

    • New and upgraded pedestrian crossings
    • Public space improvements along the route to create more welcoming streets for people and communities to enjoy
    • Two-way segregated cycle track throughout
    • Changes to bus stop locations, with removal of some, and layout changes throughout, including new bus stop bypasses for cyclists
    • Making some side roads entry or exit only to help the safe and timely movement of traffic
    • Removal of some trees in Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park Avenue to accommodate the facilities with appropriate new trees planted nearby
    • Changes to parking and loading bays and hours of operation  

    The proposed changes presented in this consultation are not final. We welcome your views on our proposals and your feedback will inform how we progress the schemes.

  • Greening of Phoenix Road

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    Phoenix Road plus Brill Place connects Eversholt Street with Midland Road and is in principle an excellent pedestrian and cycle link between Euston and Kings Cross/St Pancras stations. But it is not attractive, especially for pedestrians. Camden have money from HS2 to improve it and have come up with a set of ideas which are set out in two large and very thorough reports which are available here and here.

    Motor traffic and cycle flows on the corridor are relatively low (see pages 26 and 27 of the Stage 1 report). They show a maximum of 144 motor vehicles per hour in the morning peak (sum of both directions, west of Chalton Street) and 175 in the evening peak, with cycle flows of 24 and 27 (very low). The measurements were done in 2017; motor traffic is likely to be higher now that motors have diverted up Ossulston Street, though Google sends motors via Polygon Road rather than Phoenix Road. For comparison, cycle flows on Ossulston Street were 232 and 230 (a.m. and p.m. peak hour).

    So there are not many cyclists using the corridor.  This may increase once the Midland Road tracks are open but Eversholt Street is not an attractive route unless you are going to Euston station and anyone making that journey is probably already using Ossulston Street so cycle numbers probably will not increase much.

    6 options are proposed, ranging from a minimal treatment which would not affect the road layout (option 1A) to a complete closure (option 4). Option 4 is not supported by Camden so we’ll discount it.

    Option 1A retains the current road layout with some greening and reduction of carriageway width to 4.8m. 1B converts it to one-way, alternating westbound and eastbound and should therefore reduce rat-running. Option 2 has closures to motor traffic (modal filters) between Ossulston and Chalton Streets and between Chalton and Werrington Streets. Option 3 adds another road closure between Eversholt and Werrington Streets and 3B is the same but with added measures on neighbouring streets to reduce or prevent traffic displacement. Option 4 is a full closure but is not supported by Camden. In all cases, cycling is permitted in both directions throughout and access is retained for emergency vehicles.

    In the Stage 2 report they suggest how the actual street layouts might look. The main issues are whether the carriageway should be linear or ‘meandering’.

    From a cycling point of view any reduction in motor traffic is a good thing. We normally would have concerns about the interaction with pedestrians in shared space. However, as cycle counts are low perhaps this is not a major issue here and the improved streetscape might outweigh any concerns. If one of the options 2 or 3 were chosen we should probably ask that the design makes it clear that cyclists are allowed and that also the meandering design might be better as it would signal to cyclists that low speeds are appropriate.

    More information plus the online response form is at https://consultations.wearecamden.org/groundwork/greening-phoenix-road/

    Meanwhile please feed your comments to us via the threads on this issue, or by email to john@camdencyclists.org.uk . Responses are due by 31st May so we’ll send in our formal response by the 28th.

  • Waterloo and South Bank Public Realm Framework

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Waterloo and South Bank is experiencing significant development and economic growth. This brings both benefits and challenges, including increased pressure on infrastructure and the public realm.

    To understand the public realm Improvement needs of the area better and to prioritise and direct resources, Lambeth Council has worked with urban design and public realm consultants, Publica, to develop a Draft Public Realm Framework.

    The Framework provides an assessment of the existing public realm and identifies opportunities for improvement across Bishop’s Ward, Lambeth. Based on a rigorous baseline audit of streets and spaces, it establishes six guiding principles to shape better placemaking. These principles inform and infuse 18 location specific spatial briefs that describe the type of improvements that should be considered in each location.

    The Draft Public Realm Framework is intended to underpin the Lambeth Local Plan and other strategic documents, provide direction to the public and private sector, help secure support and funding from a variety of public and private sources, and act as a springboard for the improvement and investment necessary to support growth, resilience, independence and place.

  • Western Road/Tate Road : Proposed improvements outside Homefield Preparatory Sch

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    The Sutton local area committee has agreed for officers to carry out improvements outside Homefield preparatory school in Western Road at its junction with Tate Road. Funding for the scheme has been secured from Transport for London (TfL) to address concerns raised by the school regarding unacceptable traffic speeds and difficulty in crossing the road outside the school.

    Highways officers have met with school representative to assess these issues and a preliminary improvement scheme has been drawn as shown on the attached plan which aims to address concerns regarding traffic speeds and pedestrian safety. The scheme is fully supported by the school. 

    The scheme proposes to change the priority at Western Road junction with Tate Road and introduce a raised table with a kerb build-out to assist pupils and parents to cross the road and to help reduce traffic speeds outside the school. The scheme also includes re-arranging and providing additional ‘school keep clear’ markings and installation of red/yellow pencil bollards.

    Whilst there were no pedestrian accidents recorded at the location in the last three years, the proposed measures will improve pedestrian safety and thus promote walking as a sustainable mode of travel.

    Update:



    Dear all,


    Mulgrave Road JUNCTION WITH bridge road and worcester road – PROPOSED Changes to zebra crossing


    Further to our formal consultation Notice dated 24 January 2019 regarding a zebra crossing in Mulgrave Road, I am writing to inform about changes to the length of the zig-zag markings of the crossing.


    A safety audit has been carried out on the proposed zebra crossing. The safety auditors have expressed concern about injudicious loading activity on the eastern approach to the crossing that could adversely affect the inter-visibility.


    Auditors have stated the following on the extent of zig-zag marking on the east approach:


    ‘’The zig-zag lines, however, are short and have only four strokes.  This may permit loading activity to take place close to the crossing and adversely affect inter-visibility.  Therefore, Inadequate inter-visibility may make it more difficult for pedestrians to safely assert precedence to cross’’


    In response to the concern raised by auditors, we are proposing to extend the zig-zag markings on the eastern approach by additional four strokes as shown on the attached plan. The construction of the crossing is programmed to start at the end of April 2019. If you would like to make any comments or observations regarding the proposed changes, please email us the  before the end of 22nd of March  2018.

  • Proposed A10/Lincoln Road Walking and Cycling Improvements

    Hamish F // 1 thread

    From the consultation hub, verbatim:

    These proposals are part of a wider TfL programme to encourage people to choose to cycle or walk in Enfield, which is being implemented by Enfield Council in partnership with us. We would like to hear your views on the proposals.

    What are we proposing?

    We propose to upgrade the existing staggered pedestrian crossing on the northern arm of the junction between Lincoln Road and the A10. The crossing would be made wider and would become a toucan crossing, enabling cyclists to use it as well. The existing zebra crossing on the western arm of Lincoln Road would become a parallel cycle/zebra crossing.

    Some areas of footway would be widened to enable people to access to both crossings more easily. The changes to the footway would mean that the entrance to the residential access road which joins Lincoln Road at the junction with the A10 would become narrower, and exiting vehicles would be asked to give way to any vehicles wishing to enter.

    See the website link for details including drawings and to submit comments.

    Enfield Cycling Campaign intends to submit a considered response after discussion.

  • Pembridge Square to Meanwhile Gardens Cycle Route

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Pembridge Square to Meanwhile Gardens Cycle Route Consultation

    The Council wants to create high quality cycle routes for people who have considered cycling, but been put off by the idea of sharing busy roads with lorries and buses. We hope that many existing cyclists will also appreciate being able to use clear, direct routes along quiet side streets.

    We are consulting on a new cycle route, linking the existing cycle route known as Quietway 2 in Notting Hill to the route along the Grand Union Canal. It begins at Pembridge Square, crosses Pembridge Villas/Pembridge Road and runs along Pembridge Crescent, Denbigh Road, Colville Road, Colville Gardens, Clydesdale Road, All Saints Rd, Tavistock Crescent, passes under the Westway then along Acklam Road, St Ervan’s Road, Golborne Road and in to Meanwhile Gardens where cyclists can connect to the existing cycle route along the canal towpath. In general, the measures that we are proposing are designed to slow down traffic, or to reduce the risk of conflict at junctions.

    Complete the survey

    We are asking what you think of our proposals regarding the new cycle route. Please read the following information carefully before filling in the survey no later than 29 March 2019. For further information, please contact cycling@rbkc.gov.uk or call 020 7361 3766.

    Proposed changes

    On the southern section of Pembridge Square, we are proposing three sinusoidal humps to reduce traffic speeds. Sinusoidal humps are designed so that when driving or cycling over them at lower speeds, they are more comfortable to drive over than traditional humps, but if travelling at an inappropriate speed, they cause a notable ‘bump’, encouraging slower speeds. We know that some people are concerned that road humps contribute to poor air quality, when they lead to drivers braking and accelerating hard. We have designed the proposals in line with government guidance on the correct spacing between the humps to avoid hard braking and acceleration. We have recently introduced sinusoidal humps in St James’s Gardens and we also use them when we resurface roads with traditional humps – for example, in Abbotsbury Road near Holland Park.  

    To the western end of Pembridge Square, where there is a very large expanse of asphalt, we are proposing a new island with planting, and clearer road markings to clarify how vehicles should navigate this section of the square.

    To allow less confident cyclists to cross Pembridge Villas/Pembridge Road, we are proposing to convert the existing pedestrian crossing to a parallel crossing. Parallel crossings combine a pedestrian zebra with a crossing for people travelling by bicycle, so that people attempting to cross on bikes enjoy the same priority as pedestrians. We have installed similar crossings with success on North Pole Road and King’s Road.

    The proposed design also includes widening the pavements on either side of this proposed crossing to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as reducing the crossing distance. Raising the level of the carriageway on the two side roads to pavement level at the junction with Pembridge Road, Pembridge Square and Pembridge Crescent would also help to discourage high speeds and provide a more comfortable crossing for pedestrians. 

    On Westbourne Grove, we propose moving the bus stop road markings slightly further away from the junction with Denbigh Road. This will involve the loss of one parking space, but would allow greater visibility of oncoming traffic for all road users exiting Denbigh Road. Introducing double yellow lines around this junction would further increase visibility for all road users by discouraging inappropriate parking. We also propose to re-work the pedestrian crossing so that it better aligns with the carriageway of Colville Road.

  • 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.
