  • Vauxhall Cross public consultation

    Created by Simon Munk // 2 threads

    TfL say:
    We are proposing a number of transformational changes to Vauxhall Cross as part of our Road Modernisation Plan.
    The Road Modernisation Plan is the biggest investment in London’s roads for a generation, consisting of hundreds of projects to transform junctions, bridges, tunnels and pedestrian areas, making our roads safer and more reliable.
    Working closely with the Lambeth Council, we are aiming to return the one-way road system at Vauxhall to two-way roads and significantly improve pedestrian and cyclist provision to help create a safer and less intimidating environment for vulnerable road users. The proposed changes would also help to improve connectivity throughout the area, and create a better environment for people living, working, and travelling through Vauxhall.
    Following our initial consultation in 2014 on our high level proposals, we are now inviting your views on our detailed design proposals.

    What are we proposing?
    The changes we are proposing include:
    Removing the existing one way road system around the transport interchange (Parry Street, Wandsworth Road, Kennington Lane, South Lambeth Road) by converting these roads around Vauxhall to two way
    Providing more cycle and pedestrian crossings as well as segregated lanes and parking for cyclists
    Improving existing and providing new public spaces
    Redesigning the transport interchange, including a new central bus station

    Why are we proposing this?
    Reducing traffic dominance
    The current gyratory creates an environment heavily dominated by motor vehicles. The wide carriageway encourages high speeds, especially outside peak periods
    The gyratory can be difficult to navigate, and the one-way arrangement means that vehicles often follow indirect routes
    Lack of facilities for pedestrians and cyclists
    Large numbers of pedestrians pass through Vauxhall each day but the existing crossings do not always follow the most direct or popular routes, which can lead to pedestrians crossing roads away from the crossings
    The Vauxhall gyratory has some of the highest numbers of collisions involving injury to pedestrians and cyclists in London
    Cycle Superhighway 5 will improve conditions for cycling along Harleyford Road and Kennington Lane. However, there is limited cycle provision on the other roads surrounding Vauxhall Cross and a lack of connectivity between facilities
    Supporting the transformation of Vauxhall
    Vauxhall is the gateway to one of Europe’s largest regeneration zones, with 25,000 new jobs and 20,000 new homes coming to the Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea area
    Supporting Vauxhall’s distinct local character, the proposals look to the future – preparing for the increase in the numbers of people living, working, and visiting Vauxhall and its existing and new shops, businesses and attractions

  • The TfL North-South cycle superhighway consultation

    Created by George Coulouris // 4 threads

    Full details of the consultation are at:
    https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/northsouth
    closing date for comments is 19 October 2014.

    Camden Cyclists we propose to send a response to this consultation on behalf of our members. This will focus only on the part within Camden (the section between Charterhouse Street and Euston Road - as detailed on the map attached). But note that the alignment of the route north of Greville Street is not agreed between Camden and TfL and is not formally considered a part of the consultation.

    So it makes sense to have two discussion threads for the sections in Camden south and north of Greville Street.

  • Cycle Superhighway 5 in Westminster (via Vauxhall Bridge Road)

    Created by Colin Wing // 2 threads

    Vauxhall Bridge Road was originally the proposed route of Cycle Superhighway 5. After Westminster objected that it would displace traffic onto local roads, a number of other routes were investigated and put out to public consultation. Although a two-way route on Belgrave Road proved the most popular with cyclists, Westminster doubted whether it was feasible. So attention has now turned back to Vauxhall Bridge Road.

  • East-West Cycle Superhighway: Westminster's alternative route

    Created by Colin Wing // 1 thread

    This is Westminster's alternative route for its section of the East-West Cycle Superhighway. The following are the differences from TfL's proposal:

    * Uses Stanhope Terrace instead of Bathurst Street

    * Goes via the Mall, Trafalgar Square and Northumberland Avenue instead of Birdcage Walk, Parliament Square and Victoria Embankment.

    A plan is available at http://committees.westminster.gov.uk/documents/s9058/Appendix%207%20Northumberland%20Avenue%20Option%203.pdf or http://bit.ly/1IN4i44
