  • 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

  • Collingwood Road & Anton Crescent Area Improvements

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/collingwoodroad/ plans https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/collingwoodroad/user_uploads/t30139-c-002-to-010---collingwood-road---consultaion-plans-v0.4.pdf Quite a few improvements to junctions, change to the flow of one way, improvements and extension of 20mph zone and removal of speed cushions Details of Proposed Improvements The proposed improvements include the following main features, as detailed on the attached Plan Overview: A. Width restrictions with priority give-ways to replace existing refuge islands, and speed cushions. (refer to details 3,4,11 &12) There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions. Parents have expressed a sense of vulnerability while crossing at the refuge islands. The existing carriageway width do not allow widening of the refuge islands, which would be the ideal solution, and therefore width restrictions are proposed. This will provide more footway space for pedestrians and a shorter distance to cross. In addition, the safety risks of vehicles driving on the wrong side of the refuge island observed on site can be avoided.There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions.

In addition, the safety risks of vehicles driving on the wrong side of the refuge island observed on site can be avoided. B. Reversal of one-way on Anton Crescent. (refer to details, 4, 7, 8, & 9) The current direction of one-way on Anton Crescent results in regular congestion outside the school during drop-off and pick up times which at times impacts the flow of traffic on Collingwood Road. Reversing the direction will provide more queuing space for school traffic on Anton Crescent thus minimise impact on Collingwood Road. C. Raised junction entry treatment. (refer to details, 4, 5 & 10) The raised entry treatments will provide a level surface for pedestrians when crossing side roads and will help to slow down the in and out movement of traffic. D. Improvement to walking routes leading to school. (refer to details, 3, 7, 8 & 9) The area adjacent to the school entrance will be raised. It is proposed to surface the existing grass verge on Anton Crescent adjacent to No. 298 Collingwood Road and widen the footway from the entrance to the Wetlands access leading up to the school entrance to improve walking routes. E. Signage and road markings. School warning signs, elderly crossing, weight restriction, bridge height and speed limit signs will be reviewed and adjusted or new ones provided where necessary. 20mph roundels will be refreshed and more added to emphasize the speed limit in the area.

  • Balls Pond Road Cycle Superhighway 1

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Hackney council says: Hackney Council is working with Islington Council and Transport for London (TfL) to make improvements to the Cycle Superhighway Route 1 (CS1) on Balls Pond Road. In February 2015 TfL in partnership with Hackney Council consulted on the CS1 route which included two options for Balls Pond Road: an option for advisory cycle lanes on each side of the road and an option for a two-way segregated cycle track. A positive response to the consultation was received showing overall support for the segregated two-way cycle track along Balls Pond Road. In autumn 2015 a second consultation was held by TfL in partnership with Hackney Council on a motor traffic reduction scheme in the De Beauvoir area to assist users of the CS1 route. We are now seeking your views on measures required to implement the segregated two-way cycle track along Balls Pond Road between the junctions of Culford Road and Kingsbury Road. These measures would complete the route, safely connecting the two halves of the CS1.

  • Bromley Local Implementation Plan 3

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Bromley says: The Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is a statutory document, required by the Greater London Authority Act 1999, which sets out how we intend to implement the Mayor's Transport Strategy (MTS) within the borough. Each borough has to produce a Local Implementation Plan which must be approved by the Mayor. We are consulting on our third Local Implementation Plan for Transport (LIP3). This sets out the borough's approach to transport, including our ambition to improve road safety and reduce road danger, and investment priorities for both the next three years as well as in the longer term to 2041 at a more strategic level. Bromley's LIP3 sets out how the council will deliver and work with partners such as rail operators to deliver an efficient and high quality transport network that safely supports borough residents, visitors to the borough for work and leisure and the borough's economy. Bromley's population is expected to increase, with the level of population growth presenting challenges for the borough's transport networks. If this growth in demand for travel were to be accompanied by an equal growth in car use, congestion would get worse, with slower journeys for residents and businesses and a probable deterioration in air quality. To accommodate the projected increase in demand for travel, we need to make the most efficient use of the capacity we have on our transport networks. Given this, the LIP3 outlines the borough's priorities, which include improving road safety by reducing collisions and casualties on the roads, making it easier to walk and choose to cycle, reducing congestion and working with partner organisations to deliver new public transport connectivity such as between the borough's main centres and for example Canary Wharf.

  • Englefield Road - De Beauvoir area - Environmental and cycle improvements to CS1

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Hackney says: "The Council is committed to making Hackney’s roads safer for everyone living, working and visiting the borough. These changes aim to create an environment that will encourage more walking and cycling, improve air quality and reduce emissions within the local area. Our Transport Strategy includes a Liveable Neighbourhoods Plan, which recognises that local streets are not just places to park vehicles or drive, walk and cycle on. They are places where we socialise and live our lives. An aspiration is to reclaim Hackney’s streets from motor traffic congestion and transform them into the most attractive and liveable neighbourhoods in London. One key objective for this proposal is to create a safer, more pleasant environment for cycling on the CS1 route through the De Beauvoir area. Back in autumn 2015 Transport for London (TfL) in partnership with Hackney Council consulted on a motor traffic reduction scheme in the De Beauvoir area that assists users of the CS1 route. These proposed modal filters have now been introduced. One of the proposals that was not taken forward at that time was a zebra crossing on Englefield Road near the junction of Culford Road. From continued feedback from residents, and users of the CS1 route through this area, the Council has now reviewed the design and location which provides a safe crossing point for cyclists, as well as pedestrians, crossing Englefield Road. Please see the drawing attached for more detail. Introducing this duel crossing point on Englefield Road at Culford Road will also allow the relocation of two of the existing modal filters to be moved to this new crossing point. Modal filters are closures to motorised traffic that still allow access for pedestrians and cyclists. "

  • Duke Hill St/Tooley St

    Created by SallyEva // 1 thread

    Proposals include: Introducing a 20mph speed limit along entire length of Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street (between Borough High Street and Tower Bridge Road) Introducing a 2 metre wide mandatory cycle lane westbound, on Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street, running between Borough High Street and Bermondsey Street junctions, separated from traffic with wands on the Duke Street Hill section Introducing a protected right turn ‘pocket’ for cyclists waiting to turn right into Bermondsey Street from Tooley Street Making Duke Street Hill no entry, apart from cyclists and buses, from the junction with A3 Borough High Street. This will mean that eastbound traffic along Duke Street Hill and Tooley Street as far as the junction with Bermondsey Street is restricted to buses and cycles only. Restricting access from side roads onto Tooley Street to westbound travel only. Any motorized vehicle turning onto Tooley Street from the following roads will not be able to turn onto and travel eastbound towards Bermondsey Street: Tooley Street onto Duke Hill Street Bridge Yard onto Tooley Street Cottons Lane onto Tooley Street Hay’s Lane onto Tooley Street Battlebridge Lane onto Tooley Street Westbound traffic will continue to be able to travel along this section of highway as it does at present (i.e. accessing via Bermondsey Street or from roads further east) which lead onto Tooley Street. This will be an interim scheme, reducing traffic in the short term. We are working on a more transformational scheme for Tooley Street, to extend the high-quality cycling provision proposed as part of Cycle Superhighway 4 towards London Bridge.
