  • Markhouse Road Proposals

    Created by Paul Gasson // 1 thread

    Waltham Forest is changing and we want you to be part of it. Thanks to a funding pot of £27 million from Transport for London, we’re delivering the Mini-Holland Programme to make our streets fit for everyone to use, whether you walk, cycle, use public transport or drive.

    Over the last three years, there have been 40 collisions on Markhouse Road and air pollution in Waltham Forest is on the increase. At peak times of the day, we have up to 6,000 extra cars on our roads due to the school run making our roads more congested than ever before. We need to do something about this so that everyone can get from A to B easily and safely.

    The Mini-Holland Programme is about making our streets work for everyone and our borough a better place to live, work and travel. By creating designated space for cycling, creating routes that better connect our town centres, and redesigning some of our public areas, we want to cut down unnecessary traffic outside your home, and provide safer and healthier travel options so that people enjoy living and spending time in the borough.

    What’s planned for Markhouse Road?

    The Mini-Holland Programme is made up of a network of walking and cycling routes, one of which is Markhouse Road. These routes aim to better connect areas within the borough such as our town centres and residential areas, making it easier for people to walk and cycle for local journeys. The routes also help connect Waltham Forest to our neighbouring boroughs, attracting visitors to the borough and boosting business for our local economy.

    Markhouse Road forms part of the Leyton to Blackhorse Road walking and cycling route, which connects Forest Road and Leyton High Road. Running from St James Street to Lea Bridge Road, this part of the route is heavily used with over 19,000 vehicles and around 600 cyclists using it every day. We’re now looking to modernise this part of the route to make travelling in the borough by bike and on foot easier and safer.

    We know that Markhouse Road is popular for people cycling from Leyton to Walthamstow, so we want to improve it by creating segregated areas where possible, making it safer and easier for all road users to share the road.

    We’re also planning to put blended ‘Copenhagen’ crossings in on a number of side streets, which extend the pavement across the road, helping to enforce the Highway Code by encouraging vehicles to give way to pedestrians and people on cycles. We recognise that there is a place for cars in our borough, but want to make our roads safer by creating junctions that encourage drivers to slow down and take extra care at key points. We’ll also be investing in junctions, pedestrians crossings and bus stops, and will create attractive public spaces with more trees, making the area a more enjoyable place that people will want to use.

    What has happened so far?

    In October 2015, we looked at traffic and collision numbers on Markhouse Road to understand what changes need to be made to make the route safer. This information - along with the plans proposed in the Mini-Holland bid document which we submitted to TfL to win the funding for the programme - have been used to develop a set of proposals to improve the area.

    We want to involve the local community in shaping the plans and are now seeking feedback on the proposed improvements from residents and businesses, so that we can develop a scheme that meets the needs of the local community as a whole.

    As well as seeking your views, we will be in contact with key stakeholders including the emergency services to make sure the design enables them to do their important work day to day, and we will continue to engage with them as the scheme progresses.

    What happens next?

    All of the feedback received will be grouped, carefully analysed and used to shape the final design.

    Where there are elements of the scheme that are not well supported by residents and businesses, we will look at these again. Where it’s possible to make changes based on your comments and suggestions we will, and where we can’t we will explain why. A summary of the results and feedback will be sent to everyone who took part after the public consultation stage has ended. This will set out the results and how they have been used to help shape the final design. This will also be available on the website for everyone to see.

    Before we get to the design stage, Transport for London (TfL) will also need to approve all of our plans as the funders of the Mini-Holland Programme.

  • Earlham Street West – proposed public realm improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Earlham Street runs one way westbound between Seven Dials and Shaftesbury Avenue.

    In 2014, Earlham Street was closed to motor vehicles at the junction with Shaftesbury Avenue.

    The stated objective include the following:

    - create a safer and more attractive connection for pedestrians and cyclists to neighbouring areas, especially Soho and St Giles

    The proposed changes include the following:

    - between Shaftesbury Avenue and Tower Street, the entire road width at footway level with dropped kerbs to allow a cycle connection to Shaftesbury. They don’t say whether the existing bollards will remain in place.

    - between Tower Street and Seven Dials, narrow the road from 6.5 to 3m, move parking to other side of Seven Dials, widen footways.
    - market stalls on south side of street with loading before and after trading times

  • A406 North Circular: Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and Golders Green Road/Brent Street junction

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Overview
    We are proposing improvements for pedestrians and cyclists along the A406 North Circular from Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. The proposals include converting some sections of footway to shared use for pedestrian and cyclists, and a new staggered shared pedestrian/cycle ‘toucan’ crossing on the westbound carriageway, adjacent to the Woodlands retaining wall.
    The proposals for the crossing are in response to safety concerns that pedestrians are crossing the A406 independently and using the central reservation as a waiting area, rather than using the pedestrian footbridge located at the junction. The existing pedestrian footbridge will remain as a secondary crossing point for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists to use.

    We propose the following:
    - A new ‘toucan’ crossing for pedestrians and cyclists on the A406 North Circular westbound carriageway, adjacent to A406 Woodlands retaining wall. This would involve widening the central reservation by 4 metres to accommodate the crossing, central waiting area and guard railing, which in turn would require minor widening of the carriageway into the footway on the north west corner of the junction
    - New shared use footway for pedestrian and cyclists at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. This would involve resurfacing the footways on three of the four corners of the junction to ensure surface consistency; we would also resurface the footway north of the junction to link to our current footway works at the Woodlands retaining wall. Signage and tactile paving would be used
    - Improve the shared use footway facilities from south of Bridge Lane to link to existing shared use facilities north of Courtleigh Gardens. This would involve resurfacing the footway to ensure surface consistency and adding new signage
    - Build a retaining wall to enable widening of the footway into the grass verge embankment just south of Bridge Lane
    - Widen the existing unsignalised crossing located across Golders Green Road to 3.2 metres to enhance facilities for the north/south movement
    - Introduce Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists on the Brent Street and Golders Green Road approaches

  • Boston Manor Road cycleway

    Created by T Harris // 1 thread

    You may remember that Hounslow Council issued plans for a cycleway between Boston Manor Underground Station and the GSK complex back in 2014. The recent revised plan is for a bidirectional protected cycleway on the western side of Boston Manor Road. It includes plans for separation between the cycleway and bus stops. There are still places where cars can be driven over the cycleway at entrances to Boston Manor Park and car parking bays planned to be located between the cycleway and the properties opposite Manor Vale. We broadly support the plans, but please send in your concerns too. The consultation ends on 3rd June.

  • Fountain Roundabout

    Created by Andy Allan // 2 threads

    The Fountain Roundabout is a major barrier to cycling around New Malden. It's a large, multi-lane roundabout with no cycling facilities (and poor pedestrian crossing provision too). Lying just to the south of New Malden High Street it's key to unlocking short journeys by bike to the town centre.

  • Forest Road Proposals

    Created by Paul Gasson // 2 threads

    Waltham Forest is changing and we want you to be part of it. Thanks to a funding pot of £27 million from Transport for London, we’re delivering the Mini-Holland Programme to make our streets fit for everyone to use, whether you walk, cycle, use public transport or drive.

    The Mini-Holland Programme is about making our streets work for everyone and our borough a better place to live, work and travel. By creating designated space for cycling, creating routes that better connect our town centres and redesigning some of our public areas, we want to help cut down unnecessary traffic outside your home, and provide safer and healthier travel options so that people enjoy living and spending time in the borough.

    Between 2010 and 2014 there were 181 collisions on Forest Road and air pollution in Waltham Forest is on the increase. At peak times of the day, we have up to 6,000 extra cars on our borough’s roads due to the school run making our roads more congested than ever before. We need to do something about this so that everyone can get from A to B easily and safely.

    What’s planned for Forest Road?

    The Mini-Holland Programme is made up of a network of walking and cycling routes, one of which is Forest Road. These routes aim to better connect areas within the borough such as our town centres and residential areas, making it easier for people to walk and cycle for local journeys. The routes also help connect Waltham Forest to our neighbouring boroughs, attracting visitors and boosting business for our local economy.

    Forest Road is a busy route used by up to 17,000 vehicles daily, and is home to around 3,600 residents and 340 businesses. It’s a key route in Waltham Forest connecting Woodford New Road to Ferry Lane, and is already an important walking and cycling route that helps people get to key places like the William Morris Gallery, Lloyd Park, Walthamstow Wetlands and other local facilities.

    Over the last few years Forest Road has seen a 56 per cent increase in people cycling to get around. To make this road safer for all road users we’re planning to make the following improvements:

    Upgrade all major junctions
    Improve and create new pedestrian and cycle crossings to make the area safer and more accessible to people who walk and cycle
    Upgrade and relocate bus stops to bring bus facilities up to Transport for London’s standards and make it easier for disabled people and people with push chairs to get on and off buses
    Introduce new blended ‘Copenhagen’ crossings at all side road junctions, giving pedestrians a continuous pavement rather than a traditional kerb that they need to wait at before crossing the side road. These crossings encourage vehicles to slow down when entering and exiting the side road, ensuring that pedestrians or people cycling have right of way, as per the Highway Code
    Create segregated cycle lanes which create separate, designated space for cycling – making it safer and easier for cycles and vehicles to share the road
    Invest in new public spaces, making Forest Road more enjoyable to use, and benefitting residents, businesses and visitors to the area.

    Also, with Walthamstow Wetlands due to open in spring 2017, we will work with Haringey Council to improve the overall environment of Forest Road between Ferry Lane and Blackhorse Road junction.

    Walthamstow Wetlands will offer access to 200 hectare of unique wetland nature reserve land and is predicted to attract 250,000 visitors a year. This investment to Walthamstow Wetlands will significantly benefit residents and visitors to both Waltham Forest and Haringey.

    We’ll also improve the cycle connection between Blackhorse Road junction and Tottenham Hale, making the area more accessible for the 250,000 people predicted to visit Walthamstow Wetlands yearly.

  • Little Ealing Lane Raised Table Cycle Track

    Created by Space Pootler // 2 threads

    1. Relocation of the existing zebra crossing on Little Ealing Lane closer to Weymouth Avenue The crossing will be installed on a raised table which will help to slow down traffic. Existing parking spaces directly outside Little Ealing Primary School will be relocated which will improve visibility for drivers exiting Weymouth Avenue.

    2. Installation of a new shared zebra crossing outside Mount Carmel Primary School. This will help parents and pupils of this school to cross the road safely, and make it easier for cyclists to turn right from Radbourne Avenue into Little Ealing Lane. The new zebra will be also raised which will help to further reduce speeds of vehicles. This will result in removal of existing School Keep Clear markings.

    3. Cycle track adjacent to footway to separate cyclists form motor traffic on the section of the road where they are at the most risk. The track will also provide a safer link between Radbourne Avenue and Weymouth Avenue, which is part of a proposed ‘Quietway’ cycle route linking Brentford and Ealing. This will also result in removal of existing School Keep Clear markings which will be replaced by double yellow lines.

  • A13 Commercial Road between New Road and Jubilee Street

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL Overview:
    We would like your views on proposals to improve safety, journey time reliability and the urban realm on Commercial Road between New Road and Jubilee Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
    We have identified a higher rate of collisions along this stretch of road compared to similar roads in London, particularly involving pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Therefore, we are proposing a scheme that is designed to reduce the number of collisions involving these vulnerable road users.
    The area also suffers from vehicle congestion, particularly at peak times. Parked vehicles prevent buses from using the eastbound bus lane at busy times, which causes delays to bus passengers.

    What are we proposing?
    We are proposing to implement a number of changes to improve conditions for bus passengers and vulnerable road users. These include:

    Pedestrians
    - Raised carriageway with coloured surfacing on Commercial Road between Turner Street and Sidney Street to help lower traffic speeds and reduce collisions. There would still be a detectable kerb height between the road and the footway
    - Converting the pedestrian crossing outside Watney Market to a wider straight crossing and relocating it closer to the market. This would mean pedestrians crossing in one stage rather than waiting on a central island. Pedestrian “Countdown” at the crossing would also be provided.
    - Providing a wider crossing point for schoolchildren outside Mulberry School for Girls and installing electronic signs to make drivers more aware of schoolchildren crossing
    - Raising the level of all side road entrances and providing kerb build outs to reduce traffic speeds, making it easier for pedestrians to cross
    - Providing a continuous footway across the following side roads to give priority to pedestrians and a smoother crossing surface: Richard Street; Jane Street; Anthony Street; Fenton Street; Buross Street; Hungerford Street; Bromehead Street
    - Reducing kerb heights, particularly around Watney Market, to help pedestrians
    - Installing low level central islands to help pedestrians cross the road informally
    - Upgrading pavements where damaged or uneven

    Other Road Users
    - Re-surfacing sections of the road to provide a smoother surface for cyclists and motorcyclists and to reduce noise
    - Making Turner Street “no entry” to motor traffic (except cycles) from Commercial Road in order to improve safety outside Mulberry School for Girls and to prevent vehicles queuing back onto Commercial Road at busy times. Access would still be possible using other routes, and motorists would be able to exit Turner Street onto Commercial Road as they do now
    - Widening bus lanes to 4.5 metres to allow cyclists and motorcyclists to pass buses more safely. We would create space for this by changing the hours of operation of the parking bays on the North side of Commercial Road
    - Converting some existing parking bays into two new loading bays.
    - Changing parking controls where necessary on the north side of Commercial Road by converting existing ‘all day’ parking (Mon-Sat 7am-7pm) to off-peak times (Mon-Sat 10am-4pm). This would allow the bus lane to operate at peak times (Mon-Sat 7-10am and 4-7pm)
    - Providing Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists at junctions to let them wait ahead of other traffic

    Urban Realm Improvements
    - New tree planting where conditions allow.
    - Improving the urban realm – reducing clutter, better paving and a more pleasant environment particularly around Watney Market

  • New dedicated cycle lanes at Hammersmith gyratory

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL overview
    We are proposing a number of changes at Hammersmith gyratory, King Street, Beadon Road and Hammersmith Road as part of our Road Modernisation Plan, in partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council (H&F Council).The proposals aim to deliver a safer and more direct east-west cycle route through Hammersmith town centre.

    What are we proposing?
    We are proposing to create a direct, kerb-segregated two-way route for cyclists across the northern side of the gyratory, with separate cycle signals to protect them from traffic. This would remove the need to cycle round the gyratory, mixing with fast-moving traffic, and break a key barrier to cycling in west London.

    To improve conditions and safety for cyclists we would:
    - Provide a segregated two-way cycle track on the north side of Hammersmith gyratory. Cyclists would be physically separated from traffic by a kerb. We would make room for the cycle track by reallocating space from some sections of the wide pavement on the south side of the road
    - Separate cyclist and motor vehicle movements at junctions; cyclists would have their own traffic signals which would be green at different times to those for motor traffic
    - Extend the eastbound contraflow cycle track on King Street to allow cyclists to reach the gyratory from Hammersmith Town Hall without having to follow Studland Street, Glenthorne Road and Beadon Road. The cycle track would be ‘stepped’, meaning it would be at a height between the road and footway, and become physically separated with a kerb east of Lyric Square. We would make room for the cycle track by reallocating some space from the pavement on the south side of King Street
    - Provide a short two-way section of cycle track on Queen Caroline Street to allow access to Black’s Road and Hammersmith Bridge Road
    - Enable cyclists to pass through the island at the junction of Hammersmith Broadway and Butterwick, and increase the size of the island to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians

    We would also make the following changes in the area:
    - Provide a new bus lane on Beadon Road, between Glenthorne Road and Hammersmith Broadway
    - Remove the pedestrian crossing between the south side of Hammersmith Broadway and Shepherd’s Bush Road to allow for provision of the segregated cycle track
    - Install pedestrian countdown signals at the crossings of King Street, Beadon Road, Shepherd’s Bush Road, Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith Broadway and Butterwick
    - Widen the footway on King Street where possible to provide more space for pedestrians in this busy area
    - Raise the carriageway to footway level on King Street opposite Lyric Square to make crossing more convenient for pedestrians and encourage slower motor vehicle speed
    - De-clutter pavements by rationalising locations of street furniture
    - Increased cycle parking
    - Relocate one loading bay and two disabled parking bays on Black’s Road to provide space for additional taxi rank spaces

    Why are we proposing this?
    TfL is investing £4bn in the Capital’s vital road network to ensure London’s roads are able to meet the needs of a growing population. As part of this plan, we are reviewing junctions and gyratories across London to make them safer for all road users, including cyclists, and to make journey times more reliable. Hammersmith gyratory is used by many cyclists each day, and can be an intimidating place to cycle. Hammersmith is one of the Mayor of London’s 33 priority “Better Junctions”.
    H&F Council’s cycling strategy sets out an ambitious plan to increase the number of people cycling in the borough to reach eight per cent of all journeys. Part of this plan is to deliver a segregated cycle route along the A315 corridor, a key commuter route for cyclists. Hammersmith gyratory lies on this route.
    We are proposing to give cyclists dedicated space and separate cycle signals at junctions on the northern side of the gyratory. This would offer cyclists a more comfortable and direct route between King Street and Hammersmith Road, bridging the gap in the proposed A315 cycling route that the gyratory currently creates.

    Removal of the pedestrian crossing
    To ensure cyclists have adequate space to wait for a green signal on the island at the south of Shepherd’s Bush Road, we would need to remove the existing pedestrian crossing that connects this island to the south side of Hammersmith Broadway.
    Although the crossing is less well-used than others in the area, its removal would mean pedestrians would have to find alternative routes. Those walking between the south side of Hammersmith Broadway and the west side of Shepherd’s Bush Road would need to cross Queen Caroline Street and Beadon Road. Those walking between the south side of Hammersmith Broadway and the east side of Shepherd’s Bush Road would have a choice between crossing Queen Caroline Street, Beadon Road and Shepherd’s Bush Road or crossing Hammersmith Broadway at its junction with Butterwick.
    The vast majority of pedestrians crossing Hammersmith Broadway from outside the Piccadilly Line tube station use the most western of the two crossings.

    Impact on buses
    Beadon Road is narrow and carries a high volume of buses and general traffic. To reduce delays currently experienced by buses approaching the gyratory, we would provide a new bus lane on Beadon Road between Glenthorne Road and Hammersmith Broadway, replacing one of the two general traffic lanes.
    We also would need to relocate bus stop Z5 on the gyratory, which is currently used for emergency purposes only, to Butterwick.

    How would bus and traffic journey times be affected?
    Our proposals would affect some journey times through the area. In the main these changes would not be significant, with some bus and general traffic journeys getting shorter and some getting longer. The most notable increases in journey times will be for traffic approaching Hammersmith gyratory from Fulham Palace Road in the morning and evening peaks.

    Impact on other road users
    We propose to relocate the position of one loading bay on Shepherd’s Bush Road, with the existing dimensions remaining, in order to allow for an increase in the size of the existing taxi rank.

    How does this fit in with the wider plans for Hammersmith town centre?
    TfL and H&F Council are working together on ambitious plans for a long-term transformation of Hammersmith town centre.
    We are proposing shorter-term improvements to improve safety and connectivity for existing cyclists and support the Council’s cycling strategy to increase the number of new cyclists in the area. This plan is separate to, and does not affect longer term proposals for the area, however these proposals would be integrated with any future schemes.

    Delivery of the wider A315 cycling improvements
    TfL and H&F Council are also working together on plans for an east-west cycling route along the A315. Plans for this route either side of Hammersmith gyratory are currently being developed, with public consultation planned to take place later this year.

  • A205 Stanstead Road junction with Brockley Rise/Cranston Road

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL Overview
    We are proposing to make changes on A205 Stanstead Road at two locations. One proposal includes improving the pedestrian crossing facilities at the junction of Brockley Rise and A205 Stanstead Road. The second proposal includes removing a loading bay from A205 Stanstead Road to Ravensbourne Road.

    What are we proposing?

    Brockley Rise
    We propose to install a new signal-controlled ‘staggered’ crossing on Brockley Rise. To achieve this, we propose to create a safer pedestrian waiting area by widening the central reservation, while maintaining the two lane approaches to the junction heading south along Brockley Rise. We propose to improve the footway layout by providing a suitable gradient at the crossing for all users, particularly pushchairs and wheelchairs users.
    We also propose to modify the loading and parking bays to allow for traffic to turn into Brockely Rise. The bay would be slightly shortened by 2.5m and moved north by 2.5m.

    Cranston Road
    Similar to Brockley Rise, we propose to install a new signal-controlled ‘staggered’ pedestrian crossing on Cranston Road. We would create a safer pedestrian waiting area by enlarging the central island. We would also improve the footway by providing a suitable gradient at the crossing for all users, particularly pushchairs and wheelchairs users.

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL Overview
    In partnership with the London Borough of Southwark, we have developed proposals to improve the provision for cyclists and other road users around Tower Bridge Road/Tanner Street junction, and we would like to hear your views.

    What are we proposing?
    The proposals are part of the Central London Grid – a network of cycle routes in Zone 1. The route passes along Tanner Street, Southwark Council consulted on proposals on the rest of the route in autumn 2015, including proposals for the one-way operation of Tanner Street. Our proposals aim to improve safety and create more space for cyclists, and have been coordinated with Southwark Council’s designs.
    Our proposals also include changes to traffic and bus lanes, as well as new traffic restrictions and improved pedestrian crossings.

    The enclosed consultation drawing shows the proposals for this junction. The numbered descriptions below correspond with the numbered labels on the drawing.
    1 Carriageway to be widened by 0.5 metres to improve traffic flow. There will still be sufficient width maintained on the footway.
    2 Centre lines to be altered to provide two northbound general traffic lanes further back from the junction with Druid Street
    3 New one-way westbound on Tanner Street between Tower Bridge Road and Archie Street to create space for a segregated two-way cycle track
    4 New one-way eastbound on Tanner Street between Tower Bridge Road and Pope Street to allow for contraflow cycle provision
    5 Segregated bi- directional cycle track to allow cyclists to approach and exit the junction with substantially reduced risk of conflict with motor vehicles
    6 New segregated contraflow cycle track to parallel crossing to allow for safer approach for cyclists, and to decrease potential conflict between modes of traffic. This would require the relocation of a loading bay (see 9 and 10)
    7 New parallel cycle/pedestrian crossing to connect the cycle route on Tanner Street and allow cyclists to conveniently cross Tower Bridge Road separately from pedestrians
    8 Cycle stands to be relocated to allow for widened traffic lanes on the approach to the junction, and to prevent conflict between traffic modes
    9 Loading bay relocated from Tanner Street to Tower Bridge Road to create space for the contraflow cycle track (see 6). The same operating hours will apply
    10 New position of relocated loading bay from Tanner Street (see 9)
    11 Loading bay relocated 12m south to provide enough space for traffic to merge. Operating hours will remain the same.
    12 New bus lane (Hours of operation: Mon –Sat, 7am-10am, 4pm-7pm) to make journeys faster and more reliable for bus passengers. We would create space by moving the centre line on this section of Tower Bridge Road.
