  • North Peckham Healthy Streets

    Created by Raiph // 2 threads

    We would like to hear what you think about proposals to improve cycling and reduce parking pressures within the North Peckham area - that's roughly the area between Burgess Park to the north and Peckham Road to the south - see map below.

    Controlled Parking Zone

    In recent years many residents have told us that parking can be difficult in this area. With the introduction of a parking zone, parking stress is likely to be greatly decreased in the area allowing for safer walking and cycling and prioritising space for residents.

    Please let us know if you would like to see parking restrictions on your street, this would help to free up more spaces for residents to park.

    If you have any questions or would like to know more about parking restrictions, please refer to our information section at the bottom of this page.

    Cycling Improvements

    In addition, we would like to make changes to some key junctions in the area to create a safer cycle route through North Peckham, this would form part of the Southwark Spine (http://www.southwark.gov.uk/transport-and-roads/cycling/cycle-improvements?chapter=3). This would link existing sections of cycle route at Wells Way (Quietway 8) and Lyndhurst Way (the Southwark Spine) - these cycle routes are intended especially to enable younger or less confident cyclists to cycle more safely.

    Overall, the Southwark Spine is a north to south cycle route through the whole borough. A map can be found in the related documents at the bottom of this page.

    The principal changes we are proposing include:-

    An improved crossing for cyclists and pedestrians at the junction of Wells Way and St George's Way - This will include additional phase for cyclists and widened pavements. (Section A)
    Closing St George's Way to through motor traffic, with a barrier east of Chandler Way - This would be an experimental change, which would be open for public comments for 18 months before a decision is made whether to make it a permenant change. It is intended to reduce through traffic along St George's Way. Access will be maintained to Chandler Way from the west and Cator Street from the east. (Section B)
    Installation of a two-way cycle track on part of Commercial Way - This will facilitate the crossing of cyclists from Chandler Way to Moody Road. (Section C)
    Changes to the crossing at Moody Road - this will help cyclists and pedestrians cross Commercial Way (Section C)
    Footway widening at the junction of Kelly Avenue and Peckham Road - this will create more space for pedestrians and cyclists (Section D)

  • traffic island crossing Clifton Moor Gate cycle route with poor visibility

    Created by becm // 1 thread

    When crossing Clifton Moor Gate from George Cayley Drive towards Water Lane and waiting on the traffic Island in the middle of the road, if the traffic waiting to turn right into Water Lane is backed up to the Island there is no visibility of vehicles travelling up Clifton Moor Gate.

    I have had 2 near misses now and an going to stop using this crossing which will mean cycling on the main roads and not using the cycle lane.

  • North Waltham cycle route

    Created by Heather Rainbow // 1 thread

    A proposed cross country route from North Waltham via Level lane and farm tracks and the ROW to Kempshott and the Roman road. Parts of the route are ROWs on footpaths and need upgrading to restricted byeway and parts are private tracks which could be permissive paths. Some of the land crossed has been registered on the SHEELA as available for development and some is on the boundary of Hounsome fields and Kennel farm.
    It is proposed that this route is adopted as part of the North Waltham Neighbourhood plan so that CIL and section 106 money can be used to develop it.

  • dangerous junction - no visibility

    Created by Heather Coleman // 1 thread

    A few years back, the university reopened the Fitzwilliam Gate off the Downing Site, which had been locked and closed for many years. This was to facilitate a one-way system on the site so that vehicles enter via Botany, but leave via Fitzwilliam.

    There is a wall which obstructs visibility of drivers exiting - it is very hard to see traffic coming from the Lensfield Road (southern) end of Tennis Court Road. I spent a few minutes chatting to a friend on that corner and we saw several near-misses.

  • Disappearance of Cycle Route - Sunnymead Drive, Waterlooville

    Created by Tim P // 1 thread

    Sunnymead Road, Waterlooville is currently a "Cycle Advisory" route" from Milton Road to Charlesworth Drive, marked out with 0.75m (substandard) on road advisory cycle routes.

    Approx 10 meters after the junction (north/west bound) after Charlesworth Drive, the route disappears, and there are no signs to show that the route goes via Charlesworth Drive.

    Given that many cyclists traversing this road are from Denmead, and have used the Hambledon Road shared path from Denmead, typically to/From Cowplain School, to divert them off Silverster Road having crossed it, then back on again, makes no sense.

    Route needs a review with the Council to provide a clearer, safer route from Denmead area to Cowplain School.

  • Torthorwald cycle route

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 1 thread

    Torthorwald is only a couple of miles from Dumfries but very few people are willing to cycle on the Lockerbie Road/ A709. An off-road path running parallel to the road down to Heathhall forest would connect up with the Caledonian Cycleway and provide an accessible route into town.

  • Join Mill Road to College St bike route

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 0 threads

    There is now a nice cycle path that takes you from the river away from Devorgilla bridge, but there is no easy way to go from there to the College Street cycle track or Terregles Street as both Market Square and Howgate Street are one-way going the other way. Adding an 'except cycles' sign and allowing contraflow cycling along Market Square (which is not a fast or busy road), combined with a crossing across Buccleuch St on the east side of the street would provide an alternative route through town when the Whitesands is closed (or the Loreburn Bridge). At the moment, to get across Buccleuch street you have to cross in three cycles of the light and there are railings preventing pedestrian and bike access to College Street. This would also benefit pedestrians.

  • Lack of cycle routes to Cambridge Business Park, Waterbeach

    Created by David Green // 1 thread

    My employer is planning to relocate from central cambridge to the Cambridge Business Park (near Waterbeach). There is currently no decent cycle (or footpath!) access to this business park which avoids riding along the A10. I am a confident cyclist but I am not looking forward to riding to work along sections of the A10.

    Are there any plans for cycle route construction which the campaign can, perhaps, help accelerate?

  • Ideal for a high quality long distance cycle route

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 0 threads

    From the picture ( https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.0377162,1.2020237,3a,75y,344.67h,90.27t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s3qD7ifQ-yxT6s-syDxhktQ!2e0?hl=en ) you can see just how wide the road is. It is like this all the way from St Augustines r/bout all the way to Seven Hills . Look at the picture, the white van is moving but it barely fills half of the eastbound lane. Look at the west bound mandatory cycle lane - as usual has cars in it . The cycle lane is also very rough, much smoother to ride on the white paint !
    I believe that we could have a high quality cycle facility in both directions .
    The existing cycle route is better than nothing especially as it is mandatory but there is no enforcement against parking in the cycle lane, there are pinch points and the road space is ready for reallocation.

  • Route from Durham station to University (Mountjoy campus)

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    The main route from the railway station to Durham University's Mountjoy campus is not ideal at present for cyclists. DBUG offered a detailed critique of this route in the recent submission to the County Durham Plan process. See http://community.dur.ac.uk/m.e.phillips/cycling/DBUGResponse.pdf pages 25-29.

    It would be good to open some discussion on what the best means would be of improving these routes, from the radical (e.g. closing Margery Lane to through car traffic) to the obvious (20 mph speed limits on sections of the route). I'd be quite happy for this to more broadly cover pedestrian improvements too as that's all part of the active travel agenda.

    Can I suggest that people open separate discussion threads for different sections of the route, for example:

    1) railway station to Crossgate traffic lights
    2) Margery Lane to roundabout at bottom of Potters Bank
    3) roundabout to New Inn lights

    There may be some issues which affect the whole route. Are there alternative routes worth considering, such as North Road, South Street, Pimlico, or North Road, Silver Street, Saddler Street, the Bailey, Prebend's Bridge? The former is shorter but steeper, and the latter is quieter but longer.

    What do you think of the suggestions in the report? Are there other options we did not think of? What do you think is achievable?

  • Duke of Wellington junction

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 0 threads

    The junction by the Duke of Wellington has a number of issues. The only official cycling provision is the shared-use pavement on the east side of the A167, with a toucan crossing over Potters Bank. No provision has been made for cyclists to safely leave or join this path at the junction: it is as though no-one is expected to cycle on Potters Bank or Lowes Barn Bank, but in fact these roads are also well-used by cyclists.

    The photograph shows the sign at the south-east corner of the crossroads, with the cycle-route pointing you to Consett and Bishop Auckland. The sign points you to the toucan crossing in order to continue north up the A167, past Neville's Cross junction to join NCN 70 at Tollhouse Road. Of course, a cyclist with local knowledge going to Bishop Auckland would never choose to go this way: instead you would go west, down Lowes Barn Bank, to join NCN 70 at the Broompark picnic area off Broom Lane. This cuts about a mile from the journey, as well as several awkward road crossings. The sign just doesn't take account of the road and cycle-path network!

    Another issue is the timing of the traffic light phases when coming out of Lowes Barn Bank. This has been reported to the Council via FixMyStreet: http://www.fixmystreet.com/report/393775

    If you observe the lights from the pavement, it is quite clear that cyclists are given insufficient time from the Lowes Barn Bank lights changing to red before the lights on the A167 go green.

    One possible solution here would be a Dutch-style "green phase" where pedestrian crossings all go green and additional cycle-only lights on all approach roads go green as well. This would allow cyclists to turn safely, join and leave the shared-use paths, etc., without suffering conflicting movements from cars. Pedestrians would be able to cross diagonally in one go if needed. Reducing the speed limit on the A167 would also help: the pavements alongside the A167 are used by children going to local schools and the park.

    The junction itself could do with the corners tightening to reduce the design speed of the junction and make it safer for vulnerable road users. Other options include making Lowes Barn Bank a non-through-road for motor vehicles or banning lorries from using it. This would allow the stop line to be brought much closer to the junction. The satellite view of the junction is quite illuminating: see how much road space is devoted to making this junction fast: http://goo.gl/maps/puQ56

    The A167 is one lane in each direction in the sections to the north and south of the junction, but widens to three lanes south approaching the lights, and three lanes north. The need to have high-speed throughput of vehicles at the junction must be balanced against the safety and convenience of pedestrians and cyclists who are most vulnerable at major junctions like this.

  • Improve Dual Carriageway, London Road, Copdock for cycling

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    This is a signed cycle route from Capel St Mary into Ipswich. It used to be the A12 into Ipswich. Now it's a 50 mph dual carriageway, with little traffic due to minimal access. It would be easy to bring it down to one lane each way, and give the other lane over to cyclists with safe segregation and a wide path. Also on the south end a better link and also signage southbound to Capel St Mary and other places further south is needed.

  • Cycle access to Edinburgh Airport

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    Cycle access to Edinburgh Airport should be improved. You are currently just left to fight it out with cars and buses, then when you get close to the entrance, you have no directions to the cycle parking, and then when you do spot it you have to dart across 4+ lanes of traffic.
