  • Sittingbourne Road and Bearsted Road, revised speed limits.

    Anon // 1 thread

    KCC Consultation: http://consultations.kent.gov.uk/consult.ti/speedlimitamendsmaidstone/consultationHome

    Extends the 30 mph limit on Sittingbourne Road to include the Chiltern Hundreds roundabout.

    It leaves a 40mph limit on Bearsted Road where the marked cycle route from Mote Park to Detling crosses at Hockers Lane / Weavering St.

    That seems to me like an opportunity missed to reduce the 40mph limit on Bearsted Road to 30mph from Newnham Court Roundabout to Hockers Lane.

  • Cambridge Community Speedwatch

    Created by Simon Nuttall // 1 thread

    The Speedwatch scheme allows the public to get actively involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through their neighbourhood. It is used in areas where speeding has been identified as a priority at quarterly neighbourhood panel meetings. The scheme is run by the force alongside the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership. It is about educating motorists in the law in relation to speeding and monitoring any trends in speeding in neighbourhoods.

    Volunteers are trained to use speed indicator devices which displays vehicle speed. The registered owner of any vehicle seen exceeding the speed limit is sent an advisory letter from their local neighbourhood policing team, explaining that speeding is unacceptable to the local community.

  • Poorly-designed cycleway at junction

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Between the A10 cycleway and the Hardwick Road cycleway is a complex of sluggish crossings, narrow tracks and dangerous junctions which currently (early 2014) take 7 minutes if you wait for all the crossings. Of course, the red bike lights are only advisory, but then riders and drivers are hindered by the poor visibility at many of the crossings, plus some drivers mistakenly believe that riders should dismount and walk across, to the point of harassing riders who ride across.

    Unsurprisingly, some commuters riding through this junction have developed a number of innovative and, eh, "interesting" approaches to it. This shouldn't be necessary. This junction between the Highways Agency's A47 and Norfolk County Council's A10 and A149 should be cycle-proofed as a high priority, before the planned housing at West Winch and North Runcton.

  • Rat-run through Deri Road, Chain Road and Pentre Lane

    Created by Sam Charrington // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    School traffic from King Henry VIII School, exiting the school onto Pen-y-Pound, uses this very narrow route as a quicker way, at a busy times, of getting to the A40 or to Old Hereford Road. Can anything be done to discourage drivers from using these narrow lanes as a rat-run?

    The issue of fly-tipping on Deri Road was also raised.

  • Pentre Road

    Created by Sam Charrington // 0 threads

    The National Speed Limit currently applies on this very narrow lane. There should surely be be a 20mph limit here? Pentre Road runs along the tops of a number of residential streets on the edge of Abergavenny. It is popular with cyclists and pedestrians. Much of the lane is extremely narrow, with some blind bends, and it is not possible to drive safely along here faster than 20mph.

  • BARNSTAPLE TOWN CENTRE - FIVE YEARS PLAN

    Created by North Devon Cycling Forum // 0 threads

    20 mph speed limit for Town Centre area. This is essential to make particularly Vicarage Street, Boutport Street, Bear Street, Queen Street and Tuly Street more inviting to cycle on. Taxis, cars and buses reveling up to 30 mph just for 100 metres or so are highly harassing for cyclists and there is just no time gain to it.
    The North Devon Cycling Forum recommends a 20 mph zone for the whole area enclosed by the River Taw, The Square (A3125), Alexandra Road and North Walk. On North Walk, the 20mph zone could start/end at the Civic Centre Car Park entrance, but ideally at Rolle Quay roundabout.

  • pinch points Southwood Road

    Created by Sarah Wood // 0 threads

    There are several pedestrian refuges along the road particularly at the western end of the road. The refuges cause a pinch point for cyclists. The road marking confuse priorities between those using the on road cycle path and other traffic.

  • South Gloucestershire A38 consultation

    Created by christhebull // 1 thread

    South Gloucestershire have released plans of their proposed changes to their section of the A38 Gloucester Road. Several locations will be altered, namely:

    Northville Road Roundabout
    Filton Roundabout
    A38 / Filton Avenue Junction
    A38 Patchway Slips

    The proposals can be viewed here https://consultations.southglos.gov.uk/consult.ti/A38_Cycle_Safety_2013/consultationHome and the consultation closes on the 29th July.

    What is being proposed is, in my mind, inadequate, as the modifications are mostly tinkering with junctions, with cyclists still expected to use the mainline carriageway (which has a 40 mph speed limit north of the Air Balloon). This route forms part of Bristol Cycling Campaign's proposed "cycle freeways" and the proposals are nowhere near adequate for this road to be called such - so make your voice known at consultation!

  • Barton Road speed limit

    Created by David Earl // 1 thread

    Dear CCC,

    In light of the recent news of a cyclist being injured by a motorist whilst on the off road cycle path on Barton Road (http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Cambridge/Driver-who-knocked-over-cyclist-keeps-his-licence-16012012.htm) I was wondering if the CCC is campaigning for a reduction in the speed limit along Barton Road? I think (but am not categorically sure) that Barton Road remains the last main road into Cambridge with a 60mph limit.

    Barton Road suffers from two problems with speed: heading out of town motorists accelerate from 30 to 60 after the speed camera; and heading into town motorists are coming off the motorway and are used to such speeds and continue to drive way over the 60 limit.

    According to the http://www.crashmap.co.uk/ Barton Road has seen several fatalities and many accidents recently.

    Sincerely

    Barnabas Baggs
