  • Fact-checking the LCC

    Created by Simon Parker // 1 thread

    The London Cycling Campaign have reported that cycling is up 38% on the Embankment, and 200% on Lower Thames Street! This is money well spent, they reckon.

    Simon Munk has previously written that he is rather keen that no one makes wildly inaccurate claims about any scheme, and I would like to fact-check the LCC's claims here.

    That cycling is up 38% on the Embankment is neither here nor there. People for Bikes has reported that protected bike lanes tend to increase ridership on a street by an average of 75% in the first year alone. As they also noted, about three quarters of these 'new' users were already using a bike for that trip — they had simply adjusted their route to take advantage of the improved facility. So a 38% increase on the Embankment equates to very few genuinely new users, and almost zero from the Interested but Concerned demographic.

    A 200% increase on Lower Thames Street is more remarkable, and remarkable claims need remarkable evidence. Any takers?

  • Tanner St./ Druid St. Link to (proposed) Cycle Superhighway 4 (from Quietway14)

    Created by Luce // 1 thread

    Overview

    We would like your views on our proposals to make changes to cycling provision on Tanner Street. As part of these changes, a segregated two-way cycle track would run along the eastern side of Tanner Street and join the proposed Cycle Superhighway Route 4 (CS4) on the northern edge of Jamaica Road. Tanner Street forms part of Quietway 14, linking Tower Bridge Road to Canada Water. Quietways are a network of cycle routes throughout London, linking major destinations and are especially helpful for those who wish to use quieter, low traffic routes.

    These changes have been designed to make cycling easier, safer and more attractive. We’re also proposing changes for pedestrians, including a new signalised pedestrian crossing on Druid Street and changes to footways. The proposals form part of the Mayor of London’s plan for Healthy Streets - a long-term vision to encourage more Londoners to walk and cycle by making London’s streets healthier, safer and more welcoming.

  • Whiston Road

    Natalie G // 1 thread

    The proposals for this route along Whiston Road include:

    Removing some of the existing speed cushions and replacing them with raised carriageway
    tables. These speed tables will be raised to footway level to provide a traffic calming feature
    to assist in reducing the speed of traffic along Whiston Road, making it a safer environment for
    pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

    Please let us have your comments before 17 October 2016 so that we can draft a group response.

    thanks
    Natalie
