  • King's Parade anti-terrorism barriers

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    The Councils are proposing that King's Parade have some kind of anti-terrorism blockage, presumably to prevent a car being driven at speed into a large number of pedestrians.

    Clearly it is important that cycle access is not impeded unduly.

  • Vehicles blocking Hills Road cycle track; what's the law?

    Created by Henry Gomersall // 1 thread

    tl;dr What does the law or highway code have to say about vehicles (specifically, delivery vehicles) stopping in and blocking a cycle track?

    There was a DPD van blocking the hills road cycle track last week and I wrote to DPD informing them of this. They said they were going to make sure it didn't happen again and that the drivers would be informed of the rules. Today, the exact same van and driver were in the cycle track again.

    So, before I go back to DPD, and for my own knowledge to use as suitable ammunition in a "discussion", what _are_ the rules around vehicles entering, stopping and parking on a cycle lane and/or track like those on Hills Road, as well as others?

  • Replace Hooper Street gates with bollard

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    The permeability gate between Hooper Street and Kingston Street is obstructive as it only allows passage in one direction at a time.

    Given the ever-increasing amount of cycling in areas like this, it's time to get this replaced with a simple bollard arrangement that would allow two-way passage whilst still enable the emergency services to unlock for access in an emergency.

  • Vehicles parking in mandatory cycle lane

    Created by Simon Hewison // 0 threads

    On this stretch of CS7, there's mandatory cycle lanes, which motor vehicles aren't allowed in, but it seems that Southwark Council forgot to include double-yellow lines, or any segregation, just blue paint with a solid white line. This leaves cyclists swerving into the road to avoid multiple badly parked vehicles (often HGVs taking their lunch, and in many cases, unmarked police vehicles at the unmarked police office)

    Quick fix: Armadillos and/or double-yellow lines.

  • Roehampton Gate Cafe

    Created by timlennon // 0 threads

    Comment from RCC correspondence: The only question to ask is: What would the Dutch do? There is far too much unrestricted tarmac area for vehicles, and the Mini-roundabout does not slow down cars sufficiently. Restricting the space for cars so as to slow them down, and increasing the protected space for cyclists and pedestrians is a must. But, why stop at Richmond Hill? The Roehampton Gate is also dangerous. Maybe make the park access-only for motor vehicles, so you can only get to the nearest car park. That could easily be achieved by placing no entry and right/left turn only signs ( except cycles) around the park, so that you would simply have to pick the appropriate entrance to visit a specific area of the park, or even better, just park and walk. That would make it safer by reducing a lot of the through traffic that makes it dangerous. I'd also like it to be closed to motor vehicles on Saturday mornings between 8 and 12 noon, but you can't have everything. One final thought. The car park at the Roehampton Cafe is dangerous on a Saturday morning. So many cyclists and cars pushing through. The space in front of the cafe is especially dangerous with lots of excited kids on hire bikes . That space was recently blocked off to cars whilst the cafe was refurbished, but alas it's now been re-opened. Should have kept it shut for safety. Plus, it could be used for bike parking to ease the pressure on space outside the cafe. Unfortunately, the Royal Parks don't seem to have a clue.
