  • Islington section of Central London Cycling Grid

    Created by John Ackers // 1 thread

    Lever Street - Two-way cycling, providing a westbound cycle lane

    Junction Bath Street/Lever Street - Kerbside build-out to protect cyclists turning into contraflow cycle lane. Loss of one car parking space and the provision of parking facilities for six bicycles.

    Bath Street through to Bunhill Row - Refreshing existing road markings to better define the cycle route

    Bunhill Row - Clearly marked contra-flow cycle lane which will help cycle safety by making it clearer that cyclists are using this route

    Bunhill Row junction Chiswell Street - Protection for cyclists with footway build-outs and traffic islands. A signalised junction could be considered in future, depending on the outcome of a consultation carried out by the City of London in November 2015.

    Chiswell Street - Introduction of segregated cycling facilities resulting in the loss of some parking bays

    Chiswell Street/Finsbury Square junction - separate traffic light phases for cyclists

    Finsbury Square - Two-way segregated cycle lanes

    Sun Street/Wilson Street junction - Two-way segregated cycle lane

    Featherstone Street/City Road junction - Featherstone Street at the Junction of City Road will be closed to motor traffic

    Leonard Street - Inset parking bays and widened cycle lane to improve contraflow cycling

  • Arlington Road

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    We have been asked to tell Camden Council what changes might be helpful to make Arlington Road more comfortable to cycle on.

    The intention is to deliver it as part of the Cycle Grid by the end of April 2017. 

    We have asked for more details on traffic flows but an initial look seems to show that vehicle movements are significantly below 2000 per day on Arlington Road itself.

  • Central London Cycling Grid Borough High Street/Newcomen Street junction

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Overview
    We are seeking your views on proposed changes to the junction of Borough High Street with Union Street and Newcomen Street. The proposals are part of the Central London Cycling Grid - a network of cycle routes in Zone 1.
    This junction forms part of the Blackfriars to Tower Bridge Road route. The London Borough of Southwark consulted on other parts of this route in October 2015 – further details can be found here:
    What are we proposing?
    Our proposals aim to improve safety for cyclists and accommodate the predicted increase in cyclists along this route. The design would provide a more direct route for eastbound cyclists by removing a long detour and allowing them to proceed along Newcomen Street. By altering the signal phasing of the junction, we would also enable cyclists on Borough High Street to turn onto the new route.
    Why are we proposing this?
    The Blackfriars to Tower Bridge Road Route will provide a safer and more pleasant journey through a section of the city that is already popular among commuters as well as recreational cyclists. Transport for London and Southwark Council have identified certain junctions and sections of the proposed route that could be modified to improve cycle accessibility as well as safety for all users of the road, including pedestrians.
    By closing a short section of Newcomen Street to motor vehicles and creating two-way access to the junction, we will remove a long detour from the cycle route. Changes to signal phasing at the junction, and modifications to existing street furniture, will create safer routes for cyclists without affecting pedestrian accessibility.
    At construction stage the junction would also be resurfaced. Proposals for this junction are:
    Union Street
    Existing contra-flow cycle lane retained for cyclists travelling westbound on Union Street. This would connect to Southwark Council’s proposals for Union Street.
    Existing advanced stop line extended to 5m with a cycle feeder lane. These extended facilities would provide cyclists with a larger waiting area in front of motor traffic, improving their visibility, and allowing them to safely move away at the traffic lights.
    Borough High Street
    Dedicated low-level cycle signals to inform cyclists of when to safely proceed across Borough High Street from Union Street and Newcomen Street.
    Pedestrian islands widened to improve pedestrian accessibility across Borough High Street.
    Cyclists permitted to turn left onto Union Street and Newcomen Street. This movement is currently banned and would remain banned for other vehicles. This allows cyclists on Borough High Street to join the route. The signal phasing would be altered to permit this movement. NOTE: All vehicles (including cyclists) would continue to be banned from turning right into Union Street or Newcomen Street.
    All-round pedestrian signal phase retained so that pedestrians can safely make all movements across the junction at the same time.
    Newcomen Street
    Section of Newcomen Street closed to motorised traffic. Bollards would be installed approximately 30m west of the junction to enforce road closure to motorised traffic except for emergency access. NOTE: Newcomen Street is a borough-owned road and this aspect of the scheme would be progressed by the London Borough of Southwark.
    Two-way cycling permitted on Newcomen Street allowing cyclists travelling eastbound to proceed directly from Union Street, and turn left from Borough High Street.
    Existing footways widened to improve pedestrian accessibility.
    We have carried out traffic modelling for this proposal. The results indicate that the proposed changes can be accommodated without undue delay to any road user.

  • Consultation on Delancey–Pratt , August 2015

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Official title: "CENTRAL LONDON CYCLE GRID - PRATT ST AND DELANCEY ST PROPOSED WALKING AND CYCLING IMPROVEMENTS"

    This consultation proposes the construction of an important two-way east-west cycle route across Camden Town.

    It will run from St Pancras Way along Pratt Street, across Royal College Street to Camden High Street, where a two-way cycle crossing will be provided.

    It will then run two-way along Delancey Street as far as Mornington Terrace.

    A later consultation on the continuation of this route to Regents Park is promised.

  • Clerkenwell Boulevard

    Created by Andrea Casalotti // 1 thread

    Here is an ambitious plan for a Bicycle Boulevard from Shoreditch to Fitzrovia, along Old Street, Clerkenwell Road and Theobalds Road, open only to bicycles, buses and motor traffic for local access only.
    a. It is now the most cycled route in London, showing that it is the desired EW route.
    b. It is of variable width, therefore trying to accommodate bikes, buses, and through traffic in a consistent and safe way is impossible. In other words, a compromise will be a botch job.
    c. There will not be mixing of buses and bicycles: bicycles will have a dedicated two way cycle lane on the South side of the street.
    d. The Boulevard stops being a mega- EW-rat-run. Motor traffic will have to use Pentonville/City Road.
