  • The Royal Parks' draft Movement Strategy

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    The Royal Park says:
    "The Royal Parks is embarking on an exciting and ambitious journey to develop a Movement Strategy that will influence movement and transportation throughout our parks and London.

    What is the Movement Strategy?

    The Movement Strategy will set a long-term vision for how park visitors will move within, access and subsequently experience the parks.

    The strategy will include a comprehensive exploration of all movement and access related issues and opportunities that are relevant to the parks both now and into the foreseeable future.

    This will include (but is not limited to) increasing safety for all park users, reducing the impact of vehicle-based traffic and reducing conflict between different modes.

    How will it be developed?

    To develop the strategy, we will utilise an evidence-based approach to explore all current and future movement opportunities. Input from key stakeholders, including the general public, will be a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.

    Engagement Phase One – Now Open.

    We are seeking input from key partners including the general public, Transport for London, neighbouring boroughs and all interested parties. This input is a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.This discussion paper sets out the draft aim and principles for our Movement Strategy. These summarise our aspirations and provide the basis for developing a series of bold projects and proposals across all eight parks."

  • Wandsworth to Teddington Quietway consultation

    Created by jon_events // 1 thread

    You can see the detailed proposals bit by bit on the link below.

    I've roughly mapped out the proposed route. It essentially follows an existing part of the LCN with a few minor tweaks. Sadly no new modal filters appear to be proposed. Sinusoidal humps at the beginning of the route in Wandsworth I fear will do little to deter the speedsters.

    Feel free to add your thoughts below.

    "As part of the development works which have been undertaken in the area, the Council has secured funding to improve the footway and carriageway in the immediate vicinity of Star & Garter Hill / Richmond Gate. The improvements works are planned to take place in July and will include: resurfacing the footway and carriageway, upgrading the existing traffic islands / refuges, implementing a new footway that joins up to Richmond Park, and general improvements to the signage and street furniture.

  • Quietway 1: Ham - Teddington

    Created by Simon Munk // 2 threads

    Richmond council says:

    The previous Mayor of London’s Vision for Cycling (2013), a 10-year plan to deliver cycling improvements across London with spending set to total £913m by 2022, announced that a cross-London network of high-quality guided cycle routes would be implemented. This was two-fold; high capacity Superhighways, mostly on main roads, for fast commuters, and slightly slower Quietways on low-traffic side streets, for those wanting a more relaxed journey, providing two clearly branded routes, together composing the ‘Central London Grid’.

    Unlike the previous London Cycle Network, Quietways will be direct, better-surfaced and clearly signposted. The Quietway network will also include new off-road greenway routes through parks and along waterways, to be used for recreation and by families. Richmond’s natural assets particularly align to this purpose. Quietways aim to change the nature of cycling. Therefore, the routes will be pleasant and interesting to cycle on, showcasing hidden corners of London. Borough police resources, local community safety budgets and TfL-funded Safer Transport Command officers, lighting, CCTV coverage and patrols will ensure people feel safe using Quietways at night. Thus, it is hoped that Quietways will attract new types of cyclists and beginner cyclists. Quietways are also designed to benefit pedestrians and other road users.

    The first Quietway route, from Waterloo to Greenwich, launched in June 2016 and seven Quietways are due to be completed by 2017. Richmond is proposing initially to introduce two new Quietways. TfL has agreed to fund Quietways 1 and 2 as part of ‘Phase 2’ of the Quietway programme. This consultation introduces Quietway 1, which will run between Ham and Teddington. The route comes from the neighboring borough of Wandsworth, beginning here at Richmond Park’s Ham Gate, and finishing by Bushy Park, crossing the river at Teddington Lock.

    Community consultation and engagement events took place in July of this year where the proposed route was introduced. Having taken on board the feedback from the initial engagement, this new consultation seeks to present the updated proposals for Quietway 1. We welcome views from Richmond’s residents, businesses, stakeholders and visitors on the proposals.

    This consultation is presented in conjunction with Richmond’s Cycling Strategy, currently also under consultation; the Quietways will help to realise Strategy Objective A. There will also be joint consultation events where there will be the opportunity to give feedback.

  • Elsinore Way/A316 - TFL consultation on removal of section of cycle track

    Created by Andrew Woodward // 1 thread

    Google streetview link: http://goo.gl/maps/Fy2cs

    From TFL:
    Elsinore Way junction with the A316 Lower Richmond Road

    Please find attached a letter that will be sent to local residents regarding proposed changes to the junction of Elsinore Way and the A316 Lower Richmond Road.

    We propose to cut back the kerb immediately to the east (upstream) of the junction, to allow a better turning circle and prevent turning vehicles coming onto the kerb and the cycle path. A shared cycle/pedestrian space will be marked around this junction. Please see the plan attached.

    We are consulting the local community for their opinions regarding the proposals and we would also like to know your views. The consultation is open until 21 June 2013. Please let us know your views on the proposals by visiting our consultation website at consultations.tfl.gov.uk/streets/elsinoreway, emailing us at stengagement@tfl.gov.uk (with ‘Elsinore Way’ in the Subject line).

  • Eton Street, George Street and Paradise Road - Make 2 way for cycling

    Created by Ross // 1 thread

    Cycling around Richmond town centre is tortuous on a bicycle due to the one way system. To encourage even greater cycling journeys to Richmond town centre business the one way system should be redesigned to allow 2 way cycling for bicycles on Eton Street, Paradise Road and George Street. Ideally this should be achieved with segregated cycle contraflows

  • Quiet Routes into Central Richmond from Ham

    Created by Kate // 1 thread

    This spot is part of the route that has potential to help people cycling avoid congested unappealing George Street in order to get to Richmond station or other parts of Richmond from the riverside. When you come up Friars Lane from the riverside you reach a junction where the traffic is one way away from central Richmond.

    If you follow the one way system left around the Green you add at least 5 minutes to your journey time. You cannot turn right and take the quicker route because it is one way. You also cannot turn right up King Street to join George Street because that is also one way.
    You also cannot go straight across the path on the Green as this is officially a footpath.

    There is more than one possible solution here: a contraflow for cyclists on the side of the Green nearest to George Street. A cycle path alongside the footpath straight across the Green.

    King Street would also benefit from a contraflow which would open up the options for cyclists - particularly when the riverside route is flooded.
