  • Hills Road cycleway extension to Addenbrooke's - City Deal scheme

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Hills Road and Addenbrooke's Route is one of the five City Deal 'cross-city improvements' schemes.

    "This is a key route for people accessing local schools and sixth form colleges as well as the Biomedical Campus. The cycle facilities at the junction of Hills Road/Long Road/Queen Edith's Way are limited. The two proposed options aim to provide safer crossing for pedestrians and cyclists accessing the Biomedical Campus and local area."

  • Facilities on Groathill Avenue to improve QuietRoute 20

    Created by Chris Paton // 0 threads

    What?
    Consider facilities on Groathill Avenue to improve connectivity between Craigleith Hill Avenue (quiet road part of QR20) and the junction with NCN1 / North Edinburgh Path Network and the Craigleith Retail Park.

    Why?
    Groathill Avenue has no cycling facilities on it whatsoever, even though it is a link the council's QuietRoutes network. It is an important link in QR20 that connects Craigleith, Inverleith, and Stockbridge with the main offroad cycle network and additionally a busy retail park. Groathill Avenue is certainly not quiet, especially at the weekend when retail park traffic combined with parked cars makes it really hazardous and not at all cycle or pedestrian friendly. Improving this would encourage cyclists and help reduce traffic pressures in the long term.

    How?
    Groathill Avenue has reasonable width and so there does seem to be space for either a shared use footpath or a dedicated cycleway, particularly if parking restrictions are implemented to allow free movement of traffic along the remaining carrigageway. Given that the street has houses on it I believe a dedicated cycleway is best to avoid conflict between cyclists and homeowners. In either case, the east side of the street makes most sense as this means that cyclists can use the existing toucan crossing at the offroad path access and continue north to Craigleith Hill Avenue. As part of this it would make sense to improve the connection at Craigleith Avenue with better signage/markings and dropped kerbs to access the new path.

  • Advanced stop lines/Cycle giveway on side roads off of Avenue

    Created by pmwebb // 0 threads

    The side roads that access the avenue are a danger to the users of the shared path. This is especially prevalent on the northbound side in the mornings. Cars seem to have two modes:
    1) stationary avenue traffic - approach at speed and hit the anchors in time not to hit the queue
    2) no queue on avenue - approach at speed hoping not to have to stop. Then go for it or again hit the anchors.

    In both stopping cases this blocks the crossing for the cycle/pedestrian

    Ideally there would be an advance giveaway line/colored tarmac to identify the possibility of crossing bikes/pedestrians

  • Bar Hill to Cambridge Cycleway

    Created by Hester Wells // 1 thread

    There is a campaign for a cycle route between Bar Hill and Cambridge, also connecting Dry Drayton, Madingley and Coton to North-West Cambridge.

    Currently cycle provision for these villages is poor. Bar Hill has lower rates of cycling than other villages that are closer to Cambridge.

    The campaign site is: http://www.bhddmadcycle.com/

  • Pampisford to Granta Park proposed cycleway

    Created by David Earl // 1 thread

    The County Council has sent Cambridge Cycling Campaign an outline consultation on a proposed cycleway to Granta Park (the PDF will be attached to this issue in a thread). There's not a lot of detail about e.g. junctions, and nothing about how this relates to any extension of the cycleway between Wandlebury and Brabraham. It appears they have abandoned attempts to use the bridleway between Baraham and Abington and chosen a route along the A5050 instead.

  • Richmond Circus pinch point

    Created by Paul James // 1 thread

    The shared use pavement is pinched very tight at this point where pedestrians are crossing the road and cycles are going straight on.

    Visibility of pedestrians and bikes from Larkfield Rd is blocked by the building.

    Continue cycleway along Richmond Circus south side.
    Provide more cycle/pavement width by moving carriageway northwards or reducing to 2 lanes.

  • Lower Mortlake Road side roads

    Created by Paul James // 0 threads

    All the sideroads between Richmond Circus and Manor Circus are a danger to cyclists on the cycleway.

    There is no warning to motorists that there will be crossing cyclists and the building angles make it hard to see if anything is coming.

    Turning traffic from the A316 can have an obscured view of the cycleway due to foliage.

    Decrease corner radii.
    Make road hump more pronounced.
    Make cycle surface colour continuous across roadway.
    Add markings across roadway.
    Add warning signage.
    Move give way lines back to before cycleway or add additional give way lines.

  • Manor Circus

    Created by Paul James // 0 threads

    West side the cycleway terminates at the Manor Rd zebra crossing.

    East side it vanishes 20 meters from the junction at the Lower Richmond Rd zebra crossing.

    Path between is not shared use and is very narrow due to excessive road width on roundabout due to dedicated turning lane and large roundabout center.

  • Huntingdon Road - wider cycle lanes needed

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 3 threads

    Huntingdon Road currently has rather narrow cycle lanes, which are unnecessarily so since this is quite a wide road.

    There is space here to create really high-quality, direct, cycle infrastructure which retains priority at sideroads and which would encourage new people to start cycling.

  • Lamppost in way of cycle path, Bluebell Road, Ashford

    Created by Gregory Williams // 1 thread

    A lamppost is positioned in the way of a cycle path beside Bluebell Road at its junction with Sheepfold Lane. It is particularly hazardous if cycling along Bluebell Road west-to-east and then transitioning onto the cycle path beside Sheepfold Lane just before the road junction.

    Created by kirbyjames // 1 thread

    Pupils at The King’s School. Ottery are proposing a new cycleway follow the old railway track starting at Feniton, through Ottery and Tipton St John and finishing at Sidmouth.

    Summary from the Sidmouth Herald:-

    "A campaign for a cycleway to link Sidmouth with Ottery St Mary and Feniton will shift up a gear next month with an exhibition to show
    off its potential benefits.

    Pupils at The King’s School are spearheading the project with help from teachers and councillors.

    It is proposed the cycleway follows the old railway track starting at Feniton, through Ottery and Tipton St John and finishing at Sidmouth.

    An open evening at the The King’s School on Thursday, October 18, at 7pm will demonstrate the benefits of such schemes to the local economy and to residents’ health.

    Councillor Claire Wright, said the Tarka Trail in North Devon has given a huge boost to tourism there. She hopes volunteers will join a committee which will work towards making the scheme a reality, but funding will be the biggest issue."
