  • New road layout

    Created by Gregory // 0 threads

    New road layout has been finished here, unfortunately I didn't get a chance to look at any plans before they started work. Despite cycling past on a weekly basis, I saw no notices. It's not too bad, and extra lanes mean more space. However, I think it would be good to paint an ASL (cycle box) on at the Belmont Industrial Estate Junction. This will make cyclists feel a lot safer and give them a chance to cross the junction then get into a left-hand lane so motorists/lorries can over take after the junction (not dangerously overtake while turning). On the industrial estate is a local church, two sports centres, the Royal Mail sorting office, and a number of small businesses. As a result, there is a lot more cycling here than there was 5 years ago. Yet there are lorries and now buses(the bus depot has moved here) causing possible space-tensions between road users.

  • Update on light timings, Nursling street

    Created by DavidC // 1 thread

    It has been brought to the attention of SCC that the time given at these traffic lights does not allow for slower moving traffic to given for slower moving traffic to exit from Nursling street onto Romsey Road. A member of the campaign has informed Hampshire County Highways of this.

  • Cyclists not detected at toucan by Gogarburn RBS

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    When cyclists are on the cycle path approaching the toucan crossing, esp at night with low traffic, the lights should change to green for cycles quickly, or even default to cycles. Ideally cyclists shouldn't need to press the button to get the light to go green for them.

  • Add cycle-specific traffic lights at Victoria Bridge Road/Brougham Hayes junction

    Created by t1mmyb // 0 threads

    Cycling south from Victoria Bridge Road to Brougham Hayes either involves a multi-stage walk across the pedestrian crossings at the junction, or, more riskily, cycling across the junction between traffic light phases on the other arms of the junction. The exit from Victoria Bridge Road could have its own traffic light phase instead.

  • Toucan crossing between Featherstone Street and Leonard Street slow to change

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 0 threads

    The toucan crossing for cyclists avoiding Old Street Junction are very slow to change for pedestrians and cyclists. Often people get fed up waiting and then dart across in a gap. Or once there is a gap, it takes until cars start appearing before they change. If TfL is seriously interested in encouraging walking and cycling they need to change the timing of these lights so that they don't take forever to change.

  • Crazy traffic light priorities on crossing

    Created by DaveE // 0 threads

    The lights seem to always wait until no traffic is coming on the road before changing in favour of cyclists/pedestrians using the cycle route (NCN 20) to cross the road. The road is very busy and this equates to extended unecessary delays. What is the point in lights that hardly ever stop cars? This, combined with the terrible surface of the path to the south, is discouraging cyclists from using the cycle route, pushing them onto the very busy road junctions to the east and west, which have little to no cycle provisions. Another effect is encouraging people to take risks crossing before the ligths have changed, and leaving the lights to (eventually) change when no-one needs to cross any more.

  • Pinch point where Clerkenwell Road crosses Farringdon Road

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    As a cyclist it's pretty horrible to cycle along Clerkenwell Road due to it being much narrower than it used to be, or could be due to the ultra wide pavements. West bound there is a bit of 2 lane queuing preventing cyclists getting past. Eastbound just before the lights the Island is in the way forcing cyclists to merge with motors.

  • Prince St Bridge - Quick Fix

    Created by Eric Booth // 2 threads

    Prince St bridge is an anarchic pigs ear. I like pigs and fond of a bit of anarchy but it's getting beyond a joke. Of course it will all be sorted out properly in due course but we could live with this for years. Here's a quick fix: SOUTH 1. Move south vehicle stop line back 10m behind tramlines 2. Remove all bollards unless one or two kept in line with centre of bridge with arrows right for cars 3. Widen cycle lane from bridge to Festival way turn so suitable for 2-way cycling. 4. Put in Give Way painted line at an angle running from enlarged cycle lane to centre line so southbound cyclists alerted to need to filter across traffic. NORTH 1. Remove all bollards 2. Widen cycle lane for 2 way cycling all the way up to the traffic lights with The Grove. 3. Remove 5 bollards on each side of north bound traffic light along with the two set back 4. Paint cycle lane passing behind light and then back onto carriageway making it nice and clear that it's an option for cyclists when lights red or they can carry on (as most will, no worse than now but at least it will be clear that they can treat these as 'give way') 5. There will need to be 'give way' paint to make clear that pedestrians have right of way on the by-pass. Yes it's muddled but less so than now and makes the desire lines easier. It's also a cheap paint based fix pending the proper job.

  • Traffic lights from Dickens Road to London don't detect cyclists

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 0 threads

    Cyclists have to wait for a car to trigger the lights for them in either direction (e.g. when a car is parked the car coming from London Road goes over the other side of the road thus tripping the detectors.) At this location there is a cycle lane, and a dropped kerb on the opposite side of the road for cyclists to get on to the shared pavement to access the cycle path which is signed to go to the station via the park.

  • Phasing of Eagle Street Lights eastbound such that you always get caught at second again

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 0 threads

    The traffic lights at Eagle Street were timed such that travelling eastbound you would always get caught at the second set unless you were extremely fast setting off. After discussions with the council and it brought up at the Sustainability Forum by Cllr Smart, it was fixed to increase the length of time that those lights were green, and was great as you always knew you could get through the second set of lights without having to wait unless you just went through the earlier ones just before they went red. However over the past few days the signal timing has changed back to the older timing where the probability of getting through the second set is virtually nil. In an ideal world they would be phased such that the first set would go green, then the second set would go green several seconds later at the point where you would be arriving at them, rather than having them change to green almost at the same time.

  • Tesco development Grafton Way/Star Lane/Greyfriars/Stoke bridge/Nicholas Street

    Created by Kevin Ablitt // 1 thread

    Total re-design of this important junction. Very complicated junction with 4 routes entering/leaving . Covers very large area. Proposal is for one large oval to replace existing double roundabout. The junction has an existing reported and unreported high level of vehicle/cyclist crash. An ideal opportunity for Ipswich to have a radical design which protects the more vulnerable road users ? Please post your opinion here.

  • West bound cycle filter too narrow for wide bikes

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 2 threads

    When cycling west bound from Rope Walk into Eagle Street through the cycle filter (where cyclists are unaffected by the traffic signals except giving way to the traffic from the left), the width between the bollard and the kerb and the sudden left movement required make the travel through the junction more difficult especially when using bikes with trailers, cargo bikes. Ordinary bike users also find it difficult to use and will avoid it instead.
