  • Safer Junctions - Kennington Park Road/Braganza Street

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Tragically, there was a fatal accident involving a motorcyclist who was in a collision with a vehicle turning right from Kennington Park Road into Braganza Street in 2015. Similar collisions have also been recorded at this junction.  We are proposing improvements to the junction for vulnerable road users in  response to the Coroner’s recommendations and to improve the overall safety of the junction for road users.  

    Our plan is to modify the junction to create a ‘right turn only phase’ for traffic turning from Kennington Park Road into Braganza Street. This will remove the conflict between drivers turning right and vehicles progressing straight on southbound through the junction. Our full proposals include:  

    • A separately controlled right turn from Kennington Park Road into Braganza Street. Drivers turning right will be held at a red signal while southbound traffic moves, completely removing the potential for right turn conflict
    • Creating a northbound segregated cycle by-pass of the junction
    • Shortening the loading bay on the north-east side of the junction to allow for the cycle by-pass, while leaving space for deliveries to local shops and businesses to continue
    • Providing an earlier green signal for cyclists using the junction. This will allow cyclists to be clear of the junction before other vehicles move, reducing conflict
    • Reallocate northbound traffic lanes with designated lane markings for ahead and right turning movements. This will allow free flow of northbound traffic without having to wait for right turning vehicles to clear the junction
    • Introducing a banned left turn into Braganza Street, except for cyclists, removing the risk of conflict between left turning drivers and cyclists and motorcyclists moving stratight ahead
    • Extending the southbound bus lane to the junction
      • Removing a short stretch of northbound bus lane to allow for the new road layout

  • Safer Junctions - Clapham Road and Union Road and Clapham Road and Stirling Road

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    In the last three years, there were 23 collisions at this junction, 18 of which were people cycling. (Data available up to 30 September 2018).  

    A number of issues have been identified with the current junction layout:  

    • Difficult for road users to turn right from A3 Clapham Road into Union Road. People making this turn are allowed to proceed at the same time as the A3 northbound traffic is moving, leading to right-turning drivers seeking short gaps in the traffic and turning impatiently or without enough care.  People cycling northbound nearer the kerb may be hidden by other vehicles, increasing the risk of them being struck.
    • Northbound cyclists vulnerable to left-turning traffic. There are a lot of cyclists heading north into central London in the morning peak. Drivers turning left into Union Road have to cross this flow of cyclists.
    • Advanced stop lines (ASL) for cyclists at the junction are too small. The number of cyclists using the junction at peak times means the ASL boxes can not safely protect everyone cycling, particularly people cycling northbound along Clapham Road in the morning peak.
    • Poor junction alignment with Stirling Road. Many vehicles turn right from Stirling Road onto the A3 and then turn left into Union Road, cutting across two lanes of traffic including cyclists.
