  • Segregated cycle path on approach to North Circular

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    The A105 southbound has segregated cycle lanes and then a bus lane until the bus lane ends just short of the North Circular. The bus lane ending creates a vicious pinch point for cyclists with a metal barrier on the left and cars pushing into the lane from the right to avoid the queue of vehicles turning right into the North Circular.

    As the pavement on the left is very wide, there is enough space to paint a short stretch of bicycle lane onto the pavement, starting where the bus lane ends (so as to not interfere with the bus stop) and ending at Regents Avenue where the road is wide enough and one can continue into the bicycle box at the North Circular junction.

  • A111 Chase Side - improve safety for cyclists

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    The A111 Chase Side is a useful and direct commuting and leisure route for cyclists, linking Southgate and Cockfosters. Safety improvements are needed for cyclists using the road, particularly at central refuges forming pinch points where close passes are a frequent risk.

    More extensive infrastructure, utilising wide verges, service roads and semi-segrated lanes, could provide a safe route to increase levels of cycling to local schools, shops and sports facilities.

  • A111 Cockfosters to Hadley Wood

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Convert the footway along the A111 Cockfosters Road to shared use between the entrance to Trent Park and Waggon Road. This would link with the existing segregated cycle track from Cockfosters tube station to Trent Park and to Sustrans Route NCN 12 and Hadley Wood train station. It would allow residents in new developments along Cockfosters Road and the large planned development within Trent Park to cycle to both stations and beyond.

    The A111 is narrow and busy, with insufficient room to overtake a cyclist safely if there is oncoming traffic. Motorists can be aggressive and pass cyclists very closely, so only the bravest cyclists use this road. During morning and evening commutes there are long queues of traffic, making it difficult and unpleasant to use the road on a bicycle.

    The footway on the west side of the road has very few pedestrians and is wide enough to allow dual use or be upgraded to segregated use. It also has dropped kerbs to allow cyclists to cross side roads.

  • Chalk Lane Cockfosters - cyclist contraflow needed

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    An 80 metre length of Chalk Lane is one-way northbound, preventing use by southbound cyclists wanting to avoid the busy A111 between Hadley Woods bridleway and Cockfosters Station, where there is a safe Pelican crossing onto the cycle track linking to Oakwood and beyond.

    An 80 metre long contraflow for cyclists would fix the missing link and provide a safe and mostly off road cycle route all the way from Enfield to High Barnet.

    London Cycle Design Standards state: "Unless there are over-riding reasons not to, there should be a presumption that contraflow cycling should be provided for in any one-way street." (4.3.9 Two-way cycling in one-way streets).

    Chalk Lane used to be two-way until a new housing estate was built in Verwood Drive, when it was made one-way to stop too many cars emerging onto the A111 next to the tube and bus station. However, there is no reason to stop cyclists.

  • ECC - 9 Contraflow signs needed on Devonshire Rd N13

    Hamish F // 0 threads

    There are no contraflow signs when entering Devonshire Rd from Adermans Hill. Cyclists have reported hostility towards them as they ride "against the flow". The markings are correct as the cyclist enters Devonshire Rd from A105 but of course the drivers do not see that.

  • ECC 1 - Serious safety issues at junction A105 / Green Dragon Lane

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    A105 Junction Green Dragon lane

    Serious safety issue due to low visability of cycle lane and wide sweeping junction allowing drivers to turn at speed. The danger areas are one of the two lanes of traffic exiting GDL not giving way to bikes, or a left hook by drivers turning into GDL (cyclists will not have seen driver signaling from behind).

    This junction should always have been either a) signalised or b) low-traffic neighbourhood treatment given to Green Dragon Lane and area to reduce traffic volume on GDL.

    We suggest:
    1) reducing GDL to two lanes only;
    2) removing ped island;
    3) adding reclaimed space to footway to make carriageway narrower to cross;
    4) set back cycle lane one car's length before the junction, as for eg Park Ave treatment.

  • ECC 3 - Short green signal at junction A105 / Station Road

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    Short, delayed green signal for cyclists NB with push button at junction A105 / Station Road. Most cyclists stay in the carriageway We suggest removing push button and a green cycle phase northbound moving with the traffic on Green Lanes. Drivers turning into Station Road will have to give way to bikes going ahead, with the same rules applying as for cars turning into any side road. This is easy and should be a quick fix!

  • ECC 4 - Cycle lane crosses a very wide junction at Fox Lane / A105

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    At A105 junction Fox Lane, north-bound cycle lane crosses a very wide junction - difficult to cross Fox Ln on foot, flared turning allows vehicles to turn at speed
    1) Filtered permeability in Fox Lane neighbourhood would reduce traffic volume and the dangers at this junction;
    2) failing that, perhaps a narrow entrance to Fox Lane with a planter in the carriageway or
    3) a parallel zebra crossing over the mouth of the junction

  • ECC 8 - Long delay at A10 toucan crossing Salmons Brook

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    There is a 40-second or more delay after pushing the button before the ped/cycle phase (on the west side of the crossing) at the A10 toucan crossing Salmons Brook. This delay leads to some people risking crossing outside of the green phase on a 40mph road where speeding is rife.
    20 seconds would be more acceptable, as for the east side of the crossing.
