  • Roadworks: Gower Street

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    From Monday 25th November to Monday 2nd December Gower Street will be closed from Grafton Way to between Torrington Place and Chenies Street for resurfacing. There will be no access for motor vehicles nor cyclists and both University Street and Torrington Place will be closed with diversions in operation. This will obvously have a major impact on the E-W cycle route on Tavistock Place/Torrington Place. Details of diversion routes are shown in the attached thread.

    Then from December 2nd until Monday 9th the works move south and Gower Street will be closed from north of Chenies Street to mid-way down Bedford Square. The E-W cycle route on Tavistock Place/Torrington Place will re-open. This should have less impact but there will still be local diversions.

  • Roadworks: Eversholt Street

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    From 25th November to 23rd December one lane of Eversholt Street will be closed between Phoenix Road and Drummond Crescent for work on a 16" water main. Traffic will be two-way but controlled by signals and therefore is likely to be even more congested than usual. In addition, Phoenix Road will be closed so cyclists will need to use Polygon Road to access Somers Town and Ossulston Street.

    Update 27/11/19 - now deferred till 2020

  • Roadworks: Royal College Street

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    From 20th November until 18th December contractors Sf Stefan will be laying broadband fibre on Royal College Street. This will affect the northbound with-flow cycle lane. As far as possible, a segregated cycle lane will be maintained by closing parking bays and using barriers to make a cycle lane in the main carriageway but there may be a few locations where cyclists temporarily have to use the main carrigeway.

      • northbound cyclists will be diverted to ride in the road past the section under construction, e.g. during the first week, from Crowndale Road to Plender Street
    • the work on the southbound side will also start from Crowndale Road
      •  southbound cyclists will be diverted via Georgiana Street to St Pancras Way.

    We will keep you informed here as to which segment of the cycle track is currently unavailable.

  • Roadworks: Gloucester Gate

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    From January through June 2019, Gloucester Gate will be closed to all traffic including cycles. It is possible to get through on the footway (by dismounting). We are trying to get a better solution in place but in the meantime the only other options are to use Albany Street and Chester Gate (southbound) or Prince Albert Road and Macclesfield Bridge (westbound).

    Update 7/6/19: Gloucester Gate has now re-opened to two-way traffic. So cyclists can now enter and leave Regents Park here, but, unfortunately, so can drivers.

  • Roadworks: Calthorpe Street

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    From June 1st for several weeks, Calthorpe Street will be one-way westbound for motor traffic to allow replacement of a gas main. We have negotiated with the contractor and Camden to allow contraflow eastbound cycling through the works, but please take care; this may be rescinded if there are any issues. At a later stage, Kings Cross Road will be closed southbound at the junction with Calthorpe Street.

  • Roadworks: Guilford Street

    Created by John Chamberlain // 0 threads

    From 18th February to mid June, Guilford Street will be one-way westbound from Grays Inn Road to Grenville Street for the replacement of a 32" gas main. Eastbound traffic will be diverted via Theobalds Road and Roseberry Avenue but cyclists will be better off using Tavistock Place and Ampton Street (CS6). Note that Guilford Street is already permanently one-way westbound west of Grenville Street. At the same time, a raised junction will be installed at Guilford Place.

    Update 22/5/19: Works now extended till end May and new closure due to work on the Great Ormond Street Hospital building. As well as a new gas main, works include electricity and water.

    Update 5/6/19: Works complete as far as Guilford Place but still one-way from there to Grenville Street.

  • Blockage of cycle lane by street light replacement

    Created by Heather Coleman // 1 thread

    Yet again, Balfour Beatty are doing an utterly shocking job on the street light replacements. I thought there was a thread about this somewhere but I can't find it thus can't find if we've got any contacts to directly complain to.

    Basically, there's a large hole in the pavement around where I've put the pointer - not sure that's 100% accurate since I was occupied with other things. So the cycle lane is closed to allow pedestrians somewhere to walk.

    That has been fine this week as it's the school holidays and there is virtually no traffic to speak of. Come Monday, when Hills Road is nose-to-tail gridlock, cyclists will be double and pedestrians probably doubled, it's going to be dangerous chaos. The pedestrian route will not actually be wide enough for all the pedestrians that walk along there on a school day - they will be queuing to get through, let alone the effect of all the 'stuck' cyclists who can't get into the car lane as that's queuing all the way to Cherry Hinton Road.

    What is particularly annoying is that this hole has been there all week with no change.

    Basically yet again, they've just dug holes, stuck up obstructions and gone off leaving them. How about digging the hole, doing the work, and filling in the hole in a timely manner. This whole now four-year operation has been a shambles from beginning to end.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for direct phone numbers or email addresses so I can complain?

  • Cycle Superhighway Section G

    Created by Charlie Lima // 1 thread

    The City Connect website shows that this section is a type 1 cycle track, from start at Burmantoffs Street, up the hill and over the flyover to the junction with Torre Road. It appears that they have built this part as a shared access path for pedestrians and cyclists instead. At the top, the cycle track veers off the A64, down the slip road towards a couple of roundabouts outside the Benfield Ford garage, before re-joining the A64. No doubt this will include some Toucan crossings, designed to slow cyclists and discourage those of us that already us the cycle/bus lane (as it is) to commute, from using the "Superhighway" at all.

  • North West Cambridge Building Works

    Created by Rachel_O // 1 thread

    Ongoing work on the development of the North West Cambridge site results in cycle paths being blocked at random intervals, and inappropriate pedestrian-oriented alternative provision makes the situation more, not less, dangerous for cyclists, forcing us into a narrow roadway with fast-moving traffic. With the increase in heavy traffic, road surface is also deteriorating rapidly - increasing numbers of large potholes, which can easily lead to pinch flats and other mechanical failures on dangerous, narrow sections where lack of cycle path of pedestrian walkway means here is no escape route.

  • University Arms hotel reconstruction

    Created by Richard Jennings // 2 threads

    There are a variety of issues with construction lorries in this busy location, closure of the footway outside the hotel, narrowing of the route from Regents Street to Parker's Piece and traffic signal changes. The construction is expected to take two years.

  • Gresham Road Resurfacing - No Diversion

    Created by MJR // 0 threads

    For a change, I tried following the route signs for the station today. As well as a mystery tour near the Grafton centre where the signs simply stop, my route was blocked at Gresham Road by "WET TAR" and a sign proclaiming it. No diversion was signed and there were no advance warning signs that would have let me pick a better route earlier. Plenty of people were riding along the footways - enough that it was too crowded for me to feel safe doing so. I performed a U-turn, waited a second time at the crossroad traffic lights and rode along the very busy Gonville Place and Hills Road instead.

    I've tweeted at Cambridgeshire County Council and Cambridge City Council in https://mobile.twitter.com/mjray/status/453926972843118593 because I don't think that is legal - a cycle route suddenly being blocked by wet tar does not comply with the code of practice on safety at streetworks, which is required by law. I'm disappointed to encounter this in Cambridge.

  • Townscape Heritage Initiative

    Created by MJR // 2 threads

    There is a Heritage Lottery Fund stage 1 project hoping to progress to stage 2 and work for 5 years from June 2014 to regenerate the "old town" around the Saturday Market Place. The initial draft contains no cycle measures but does mention cycle access policy, so may be persuaded to reinstate lost public cycle parking in places like opposite the old Post Office and might even be a way to fill in the missing link in National Cycle Network Route 1. The consultation papers are online at http://www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=26919 and open until 16 December.
