  • Newmarket Road, Cringleford contraflow cycle lane

    Created by Richard Jennings // 1 thread

    A cyclist was killed after being hit by a speeding driver that was in the contraflow cycle lane because parked cars were obstructing the with-flow lane. The collision happened on 9 November 2015, died 22 January 2016 (according to Coroner). Press report of inquest: https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/driver-speeding-before-head-on-collision-which-killed-cyclist-in-norwich-cannot-be-prosecuted-1-5136540/

    The coroner said that "the road currently posed a “significant risk” to cyclists", they were due to contact Norfolk CC to get details of the changes. The proposed changes were, in part, to change from a mandatory cycle lane to an advisory one!

  • Northfield Avenue Crossing

    Created by Martin Gorst // 1 thread

    A new Toucan crossing to link Dean Gardens with Mattock Lane. This will replace the present Toucan crossing. This route is part of the London Cycle Network Route 41. The plan was included in the West Ealing Liveable Neighbourhood Bid, but the council intends to install this as a separate project - probably in the financial year ending March 2019.

  • Removal of cycle track on Putney Embankment

    Anon // 1 thread

    Wandsworth Council in TMO 1644 propose removing the contra-flow segregated cycle track at the eastern end of Putney Embankment to allow a hoarding to be built around the Thames Tideway tunnel construction site. The track will be re-opened when the work is complete, but this could take at least a year. It is proposed that eastbound cyclists join the Upper Richmond road by the Dukes Head pub and then continue on this road. Wandsworth Cycling Campaign objected to this on the grounds that the Upper Richmond Road is extremely heavily trafficked and the proposed diversion involved cycling past a row pf parking bays . This would be very difficult and hazardous for the mix of cyclists using the Thames Path of which this forms part. We asked that the parking bays be temporarily removed and replaced by a 1.5 to 2 m cycle lane separated from the motor traffic by wands or similar. For west-bound cyclists using the narrow lane left on Putney Embankment past the work site, we asked for the installation of 'Do not overtake cyclists' signs.

  • Development West of Hall Lane

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    This area is proposed for development. It is of strategic interest because access will almost certainly cross National Route 1 and it would be good to have very good cycling connectivity to avoid adding unnecessary cars to the roads in this area.

  • Teddington Railway Bridge

    Created by Paul L // 0 threads

    Tedington railway bridge is the steepest hill in Teddington and the roundabouts make cycling at busy times stop-start. There are sections of off-road track but they pushy you back onto the road at narrow sections. What is needed is a comprehensive scheme with protected crossings of Park Rd and Waldegrave rd parallel to the existing zebras.

  • Awkward turning onto cycle path, Shincliffe Peth

    Created by Matthew Phillips // 1 thread

    Coming out of Durham down Shincliffe Peth on the A167, there is a pedestrian refuge at the foot of the hill, by the turning to the cycle-track which skirts the bottom of Maiden Castle hill-fort. You are expected to negotiate a 180 degree turn to access this track, at the same time as avoiding speeding cars and the pinch-point of a refuge. In the other direction, cyclists have to be cautious of using the refuge as the width of it is not sufficient to accommodate a tandem or a cycle with trailer or child tag-along attachment. Visibility is poor when crossing the road from north to south.

    Improvements might include moving the 30mph limit to the foot of the hill, introducing speed cushions or a raised junction table. If the speed were reduced, the central refuge would not be needed and some of the difficulties might be avoided, but that may not be the best solution at this site.

    Speed of the traffic is the main issue here, both for cyclists and the pedestrians who use the popular footpaths.
