  • Jubilee Quietway (Harrow)+

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow council originally proposed a segregated cycle route along Honeypot Lane / Marsh Lane, as part of the 2013 mini-Holland bid, but it was not funded. They are currently trying to build  a cycle route along the Jubilee line using LIP funding. This route does not follow the direct main roads, but uses mostly minor roads, with some sections of shared footway along main roads. 

    The original consultation is for the scheme shown on the map above, but a more direct route using a short section of Honeypot Lane is also going being worked up.

    Scheme description (From Harrow council consultation leaflet):

    Stanmore Station / London Road

    1.New shared use footway and Toucan Crossing. The existing footway outside Stanmore Station will be widened to incorporate a shared use footway (which allows both pedestrians and cyclists to use the footway) to start the westbound cycle route on London Road through to the junction with Merrion Avenue. This will improve cycle access to Stanmore Station, a key interchange along this route. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    Merrion Avenue

    2.Raised table to provide level access to cyclists and pedestrians on Merrion Avenue at its junction with London Road. This will provide continuity to the cycle route, assist in slowing down traffic accessing Merrion Avenue and improve cycle and pedestrian safety at the junction.

    Whitchurch Lane

    3. New Parallel Pedestrian and Cyclist Crossing with shared use on adjacent footways, which would allow them to safely cross Whitchurch Lane. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    4. Shared use footway on south side of Whitchurch Avenue between the parallel crossing and the pedestrian crossing on 

    Honeypot Lane

    This will require some widening into the adjacent green area of Stanmore Marsh to the south. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    Bromefield

    5. New traffic island and shared use footway to provide protection for right turning cyclists south of the junction with Wemborough Road. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    Honeypot Lane

    6. Shared use footway on east side of Honeypot Lane between the pedestrian crossing at Broadcroft Avenue and Collins Avenue. The existing turning head south of Dalston Gardens will be raised to footway level to accommodate the shared use footway. A vehicle crossover will be provided, in the location of the turning head, to aid turning vehicles. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    Aldridge Avenue

    7. Raised table to provide level access to cyclists and pedestrians on Aldridge Avenue This will provide continuity to the cycle route, assist in slowing down traffic accessing Aldridge Avenue and improve cycle and pedestrian safety at the junction.

    Camrose Avenue

    8. New Parallel Crossing with adjacent shared-use footway on Camrose Avenue west of Turner Road for pedestrians and cyclists to allow them to safely cross Camrose Avenue.

    9. Shared use footway on Camrose Avenue between Collins Road and Turner Road. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway.

    Turner Road

    10. Shared use footway on Turner Road between Camrose Avenue and the borough boundary (near Queensbury Station). This will require some footway widening into the carriageway. Measures such as signage and tactile paving would be used to indicate the shared use footway. Along with the above measures, we are proposing to provide cycle road markings and traffic signs for cyclists, pedestrians and motorised traffic at various locations along the route. These signs and road markings are necessary to inform all road users of the presence of the cyclists on the road and the cycle route.

    Honeypot Lane, Wigton Gardens, Aldridge Avenue

    With the amount of funding made available next financial year, we anticipate to carry out further investigation on providing a more direct cycle route through Honeypot Lane – Wigton Gardens – Aldridge Avenue. A separate public consultation will be carried out on proposed measures along these roads.

  • Proposed Harrow Quietway

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Final proposed route of the Harrow Quietway. The Quietways programme commenced under Mayor Boris Johnson aimed to build a cycle route in each borough, predominantly on quieter roads. Ideally these should be roads along cyclist desire lines from which through motor traffic has been removed. However, many of them have been substandard, either because they follow busy roads or are indirect.

    The proposed route has changed several times (see http://harrowcyclists.org.uk/consultations/tfls-wiggly-quietway-for-harrow-june-2015/) and this is the final version.

    The sections along Station Road and George Gange Way use existing segregated cycle paths, and the remaining sections are along minor roads with some changes to junction geometry and parking restrictions, but no new restrictions on motor vehicle movement. The toucan crossing of Kenton Road will move about 100m to a more convenient location, and there will be new lighting along the path in Byron Park and the Belmont Trail.

  • Metropolitan Quietways

    Created by Anoop // 1 thread

    Harrow Council is proposing to create 'Quietways' roughly following the route of the Metropolitan line, along residential roads and through parks. The routes will be signed with minor changes at some junctions (shared footway, tiger crossings), and improvements to some off road sections of route. There are no planned restrictions to motor traffic flow, nor any new segregated cycle paths along the road.

  • Healthy Streets: Ashurst & Buxted Roads, Friern Barnet Lane, Friern Park N11

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Barnet Council says:
    As part of the Mayor of London’s new ‘Healthy Streets’ http://content.tfl.gov.uk/healthy-streets-for-london.pdf agenda funding has been made available by Transport for London; this funding has been created to support sustainable transport improvements in the neighbourhood shown on this map. The area in focus is part of the new proposed backstreet Quietway cycling route from Hornsey to North Finchley.

    More information on the project, and what we are aiming to achieve, is provided in our FAQs document https://engage.barnet.gov.uk/1173/documents/1056 . You can also view the full map of the Quietway route here https://engage.barnet.gov.uk/1173/documents/1057 .

    To decide which designs would work best in this area, we need your local knowledge. Our delivery partner, Sustrans, aim is to work with the diverse range of residents, school pupils and other groups in this area to understand:

    - the issues you face in moving around this area

    - different requirements of all those living and travelling through this area.

    To share your local knowledge you can complete our questionnaire in one of two ways:

    - through our online questionnaire( https://sustrans.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/healthystreets )

    - by attending one of our events, where staff members from Sustrans and Barnet Council will be on hand to answer any questions, and help you complete the questionnaire:

    Thursday 21 September 6.00 - 8.00 pm, at the Wren Academy, Woodhouse Road entrance, N12 9HB

    Saturday 23 September 10.30am - 1.30pm, Wren Academy, Woodhouse Road entrance, N12 9HB
