  • Three sets of road closures to be made permanent Sandall Road, Savernake Road, C

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Sandall Road Safe and Healthy Streets scheme

    In May 2020, as a trial, bollards were placed across Sandall Road by the width restriction to prevent motor traffic from cutting through residential streets between Camden Road and Kentish Town Road or Leighton Road.

    Camden is now consulting on whether the trail scheme should be made permanent. Drawing here.

    The consultation and the Online Survey are here

    Savernake and Cressy Road Safe and Healthy Streets scheme

    In May 2020, as a trial, bollards were placed across Savenake Road by the entry to Saverrnake Bridge to prevent motor traffic from cutting through Constantine Road and Savernake Road to avoid the signals at the junction of Agincourt Road and Mansfield Road.

    Camden is now consulting on whether the trail scheme should be made permanent with some enhancements - three separate water absorbing planting areas to include three new trees. Plans.

    They are also proposing two-way cycling on Cressy Road between Agincourt Road and Constantine Road – a very welcome extension of the recently implemented two-way cycling on Cressy Road south of Agincourt Road.

    And an electric vehicle charging point.

  • Proposed Trial Changes to Haverstock Hill and Rosslyn Hill

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden proposes the following measures:

    • New cycle lanes, protected by flexible wands, will be installed on both sides of Haverstock Hill and Rosslyn Hill (between Prince of Wales Road and Belsize Lane).
      • On the northbound side, cyclists will have to use the existing bus lane from Belsize Avenue on – the bus lane times will be made 24/7.
    • All parking and loading spaces are to be removed from this section of Haverstock and Rosslyn Hill to make space for the cycle lanes. Some will be replaced in side roads.
    • All pedestrian refuges at informal crossings are being removed to make room for the cycle lanes. Five of the existing ‘uncontrolled’ crossing points on Haverstock Hill will be replaced with four new zebra crossings and one new signalised crossing .
    • Shared use bus boarders will be deployed at the eight bus stops – bus stops will be moved into the carriageway to allow for the cycle lane to continue next to the kerb.
    • At the junctions with England’s Lane and Pond Street ‘pedestrian countdown’ facilities, ‘early release’ for bikes and extended ‘Advanced Stop Lines’  will be provided subject to approval from TfL
    • Timed loading bays (Mon-Sat 10 am - 2pm) along (on southbound side opposite Steeles Road Haverstock Hill  and full time loading bay opposite Belsize Lane.
    • If the consultation is agreed, cycle parking will be added at the shopping parades.

  • Queen's Crescent Motor Traffic Free Environment Trial

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    The proposals will trial a motor traffic-free environment that reduces traffic volumes and speeds, supports the existing market and local businesses, and allows more space for social distancing, walking, and cycling. The proposals also include measures at the junction of Queen’s Crescent and Grafton Road to prevent rat running traffic from using Grafton Road and Vicar’s Road and create a safer and quieter environment for residents in that area.

    Camden have announced a consultation trial closures of Queen's Crescent (the market area) and Grafton Road. The resulting reduction in motor traffic will improve cycling conditions massively on Grafton Road in particular and in adjacent streets to a lesser extent. This, in conjunction with this scheme including the closure of Anglers Lane (decision to go ahead) should result in a sizeable LTN in all but name.

  • Camden Council review of parking permits and parking charges

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is consulting on a review of its parking permits and parking charges

    Motivation: diesel vehicle ownership and trips have not reduced sufficiently to address the AQ impact.

    The proposed changes are from April 2021 unless stated otherwise.

    Residents Parking permits

    The diesel surcharge to be raised from 21.5% to 50% of the petrol vehicle permit price  (surcharge ranging from £65 to £237 per annum).

    The petrol vehicle permit price depends on CO2 emissions and ranges from £130-£274 p.a.

    Electric vehicles get free permits.

    Visitors permits

    Not mentioned in the consultation document so presumably remain the same e.g. £1.12 per hour.

    Car clubs

    The current permit price is £289. This will change to a price based on CO2 emissions with a diesel surcharge.

    The price for electric cars will be £86. The lowest CO2 emission polluter pays £289.

    Doctors’ permits

    The same charges as for a  Car Club vehicle.

    Paid for parking sessions

    Currently, the borough is divided into four areas each with different tariffs. The areas with the two lowest tariffs will be merged.

    CO2 emission based charging will be introduced and the diesel surcharge will be raised from 21.5% to 50%

    Electric vehicles pay from £2.40 to £4.14 per hour in areas 1 to 3 while the charge for petrol cars range from £3.43 (lowest polluter in the cheapest area) to £5.15 (highest polluter in most expensive area).

    Increased price for coaches £13.82 per hour.

    Maximum stay of 1 hour where there is currently no maximum and in CPZs with only 2 hours of operation.

    South of Euston Road maximum stay reduced from 2 to 1.5 hour. From April 2022.

    Motorcycle parking

    Discount electric m/c residents’ permit (to £22 p.a.) and increase the price of petrol ones (to £130 p.a.). They also have business permits and visitor permits.

    Convert all dedicated solo m/c bays to shared use with one of the various permits. No more free parking for m/cs.

    Paid for parking £3.42-£5.92 per hour for petrol and £1.72-£2.96 electric per hour.

  • Barnet Draft Long Term Transport Strategy 2020-2041 Consultation

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Update: Strategy adopted by Environment Committee on 09/09/2020

    "Barnet’s population is growing and by 2030 it will have grown to almost 450,000 people, with a significant increase in the older population. We want to ensure that transport in the borough can support this growth and provides a reliable, safe and convenient transport network which supports improvements to air quality and the health of all of our residents."

    "There is also limited road space in the borough and with the projected population growth, congestion can only be addressed by reducing our reliance on the car and encouraging more sustainable and active ways to travel such as walking, cycling and public transport."

    "Our proposed Long Term Transport Strategy sets a direction for change to offer greater choices for travel, encourage more active lifestyles which will increase the health and well-being of Barnet’s residents and improve air quality. The strategy also sets out a number of proposed schemes for each type of travel along with activities to help change behaviour and encourage positive changes to the way we currently travel."

    "

    Our vision

    The strategy includes the following vision statement relating to our long term vision for transport in the borough:

    By 2041, Barnet will have an efficient, convenient and reliable transport network, which enables safe, healthy and inclusive travel, protects the natural environment and supports the borough’s growth.

    The network will have transformed the way people and goods travel, providing strong orbital and radial links which gives everyone a choice of transport modes to complete their journey regardless of age, ability or income.

    This vision informs our proposals for the future of transport in the borough, and sets out a roadmap for achieving our vision which also complements other council policies such as the Growth Strategy(External link), the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy(External link), and the draft Local Plan(External link)."

  • Safer Junctions - A1 Holloway Road (including Drayton Park junction)

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    In the last three years, there were 61 collisions, with 71 casualties, 19 of which were people cycling and eight of which involved pedestrians. (Data available up until the end of November 2018).

    The scheme aims to address identified and perceived safety concerns at these junctions, as well as at George’s Road and the turning into the petrol filling station south of Palmer Place. The scheme will introduce new, signalised pedestrian crossings at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction, replace the zebra crossing at the junction of Liverpool Road with a signalised crossing and simplify all the existing staggered crossings to straight across crossings at the Hornsey Road/Hornsey Street junction.

    We consulted on a proposal that sought to deliver signalised pedestrian crossings at Drayton Park/Palmer Place and Liverpool Road in 2010. This was not taken ahead because of concerns raised during the consultation about the impact of the scheme on local roads arising from proposed banned turns. This consultation was also launched shortly after the recently opened Emirates stadium, the effects of which were felt to have an impact on the response to the consultation. When developing our new proposal we took this feedback into account and have now amended the scheme to address these concerns. The details can be found below.

    Our proposals

    We would like your views on the following proposals which aim to provide new signalised crossings and address identified safety concerns.

    We propose to provide new, signalised pedestrian crossings at the Holloway Road/Palmer Place/Drayton Park junction and the Holloway Road/Liverpool Road junction. The existing signalised pedestrian crossing outside the London Metropolitan University Clocktower building would move south and be brought into the new junction.

    We propose to simplify the Holloway Road/Hornsey Street/Hornsey Road junction. We would convert the existing staggered signalised pedestrian crossings to straight across crossings. We also propose to remove the small triangular pedestrian island and slip road into Hornsey Road to create more space for people walking, reduce the crossing distance and simplify traffic movements.

    To allow for the proposed crossing changes to be introduced, changes to some bus stops, loading bays and parking locations between Hornsey Street/Hornsey Road and Ronalds Road would be required.

    To provide the new crossings, we propose to make changes to some permitted turning arrangements for traffic at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place and Liverpool Road junctions. All movements through the area would still be possible in the new road layout, but it might be necessary for road users to take a different route. These changes are necessary to allow the crossings to be delivered without displacing traffic on to local roads.

    In detail:

    • From Palmer Place on to Holloway Road, we propose to reinstate the right turn and remove the left turn. Traffic approaching from Palmer Place and heading north would instead use Liverpool Road to turn left on to Holloway Road
    • From Holloway Road in to Palmer Place, the left turn would be removed and vehicles would use Liverpool Road to turn left
    • From Liverpool Road on to Holloway Road the right turn would be removed and vehicles would use Palmer Place to travel south towards Central London

    We need to remove two trees to ensure the new signals at Liverpool Road are visible to drivers. We have identified locations to plant new trees elsewhere within the scheme extents, subject to ground conditions.

    We propose to change the traffic signals at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction so that the side roads run separately to reduce the risk of conflict between road users at this junction.

    To provide the new pedestrian crossings at the Drayton Park/Palmer Place junction and on Liverpool Road, all the junctions in the scheme must be addressed together. This is to ensure the road network operates effectively in this area for all users.

    Traffic modelling

    Our traffic modelling data shows that the overall effect of our proposals on buses is generally neutral. The majority of bus routes will experience a change in journey time of between 0 and 30 seconds, however there are also some considerable improvements, of up to 5 minutes, expected for buses using Liverpool Road in both directions, particularly during the PM peak. There is an overall small impact on northbound general traffic, with improved journey times for southbound general traffic. These impacts result from the need to balance the network for all vehicular modes affected by the proposals.

    Bus service changes

    As a result of changes to the turning movements at the junction of Palmer Place to Holloway Road, we are also proposing to reroute the 153 bus route in a northbound direction from Palmer Place on to Liverpool Road. This is required because of the changes at the Palmer Place junction but is also expected to increase reliability and simplicity for passengers.

    Cycleway consultation

    The London Borough of Islington, in partnership with Transport for London, are also currently consulting on a new Cycleway adjacent to this scheme. The new Cycleway will connect Finsbury Park and Highbury Fields, where the improved route will help cyclists cross Holloway Road at the existing cycle crossing at Fieldway Crescent. More details are available at: www.islington.gov.uk/highburycycleway.

  • Barnet Cycleway between Hornsey and North Finchley

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Barnet council says...

    Overview

    You and others in your area have a unique opportunity to benefit from Transport for London (TfL) funding to improve walking and cycling routes between Hornsey and North Finchley.

    We want to hear your views on our proposals that will transform streets in the borough. The improvements will help provide a future Cycleway between Alexandra Park in The London Borough of Haringey, through quiet streets and over the North Circular into The London Borough of Barnet; ending at North Finchley High Road A1000 amongst a busy parade of shops and cafes.

    Background

    The proposals are an important part of the Mayor of London Transport Strategy and Barnet’s ambition to get more people to walk and cycle. The proposals are guided by the Healthy Streets Approach(External link) which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.

    We have commissioned Sustrans Ltd(External link) as project coordinator and delivery partner for the Barnet section of the Cycleway route from Hornsey to North Finchley.

    Over the last two years Sustrans, in partnership with the council, engaged with residents in specific areas along the route to better understand local travel choices and concerns, road traffic and the quality of local streets.

    The proposals we are consulting on aim to address these issues, ensuring that improvements help to create an environment in which traffic is both reduced and slowed, and in which air quality is improved.

    What are we seeking your views on?

    This consultation is asking for your views on the draft concept designs for the route.

    Specifically, we are seeking your views on:

    • the layout of proposed street alterations within the draft concept designs
    • any comments you may have on the overall draft route.

    For more information on our proposals please read our FAQ document.
