  • Stag Lane & Roe Green Local Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    "Over the last 3 years there have been 26 traffic accidents recorded in Stag Lane resulting in 31 casualties. These casualties included 10 vehicle passengers, 9 vehicle drivers, 6 motorcycle riders, 4 cyclists and 2 pedestrians. 

    A 20 mph speed limit on Stag Lane and Roe Green between Mollison Way and Kingsbury Road designed to be self-enforcing through the introduction of traffic calming measures

     Speed cushions on Stag Lane and Roe Green which are narrow enough to allow a wide wheel based vehicle such as fire engine or an ambulance to pass relatively unhindered. A smaller wheel base vehicle such as a car however would need to have at least one set of wheels on some part of the cushion. Speed cushions have proved very effective in helping to reduce vehicle speeds.

     New pedestrian refuge islands on Stag Lane, by Carlisle Road and Goldsmith Lane to provide additional safe crossing points for pedestrians.

     Footway widening (kerb build outs) at the junction of Carlisle Road and Tewkesbury Gardens to slow traffic and reduce crossing widths for pedestrians.

     2 variable message speed signs to advise drivers to slow their speed.

     The installation of short sections of double yellow line “At Any Time” waiting restrictions at the Harrod Court vehicle access to the clinic. "

  • Ealing Road Local Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    The council proposes the following:

     20mph Speed Limit– A new 20mph speed limit will be introduced on Ealing Road from Wembley High Road to Mount Pleasant. Eight electronic vehicle activated 20mph and speed indicator signs will be installed at regular intervals to advise drivers about the 20mph speed limit and their current speed;

     Traffic Calming Features – Six new raised speed tables will be provided to reduce vehicle speeds and improve crossing facilities for pedestrians;

     New Zebra Crossings – 2 new raised speed tables & zebra crossings and 1 raised existing zebra crossing will replace the existing traffic island and speed cushions. This will provide more opportunities for pedestrians to cross safely between the traffic flows.

  • Consultation: Tufnell Park junction revisions

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    Revised description following release of the Consultation (on 14 December 2018):


    The proposals for this junction includes the following major changes:



    1. Widening the footway surrounding the entrance to the underground station, both on Tufnell Park Road and Brecknock Road, as well as the western footway of Dartmouth Park Hill (near Burghley Road where the school pupils congregate after school).

    2. Removal of central islands on all roads at the junction. This allows for more road space to be given to mark a dedicated cycle lane on approach to the junction where cyclists are more vulnerable or in some cases to provide an additional traffic lane to reduce delay to buses.

    3. Implementing two new diagonal crossings providing a direct link from east to west, from the school side to the bus stops on Tufnell Park Road and the underground station. These would allow pedestrians to cross in one stage instead of crossing two roads before reaching their destination.

    4. Widening the existing crossings to accommodate more pedestrians to cross comfortably at the same time.

    5. Extend double yellow lines on the western side by 16m up to 227/229 Brecknock Road to prevent vehicles parking at this location which will result in traffic congestion due to narrow width of carriageway

    6. Banning the right turn from Junction Road into Dartmouth Park Hill.

    7. Marking advanced cycle stoplines on all approaches including mandatory cycle feeder lanes on Junction Road and Tufnell Park Road.

    8. Banning the left turn from Brecknock Road into Fortess Road.

    9. Provision of a ‘Keep Clear’ road markings opposite Burghley Road to assist with cyclists turning right out of the side road.

    10. Provision of pedestrian countdown timers and a pedestrian only stage allowing pedestrians to cross all roads whilst all other traffic is stopped.

  • Heath Street/East Heath Road/West Heath Road junction Proposed Improvements

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    In the consultation Camden states that they propose measures to  improve the public realm and reduce bus journey times through the junction of Heath Street, East Heath Road and West Heath Road in Hampstead.

     

    We note that buses 268 and 603 run along Heath Street through this junction. 

     

    They list the following problems:

     

    - The staggered arrangement of East Heath Road and West Heath Road means that it is difficult to turn right or travel straight ahead when exiting West Heath Road

     

    -  pedestrians crossing the northern arm of the junction over Heath Street have to cross away from the their desire line

     

    -  southbound traffic on Heath Street is held while pedestrians cross East Heath Road

  • Enfield Transport Plan - Local Implementation Plan

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    "The Enfield Transport Plan (ETP) outlines what we will do over the next few years to improve those parts of the transport network which the Council is responsible for. Alongside this there will be continuing maintenance and, at the other end of the scale, delivery of strategic projects, such as the new Meridian Water station.

    The core of the ETP is Enfield’s third Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which is a statutory document setting out how the Council proposes to help implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy. The LIP also details how we propose to spend funding received from Transport for London (TfL).

    At the heart of the plan is improving people’s health. Our local priorities reflect this, with a focus on making travel more sustainable, active and safe:

    • Making active travel the natural choice, particularly for those trips less than 2km in length.
    • Making more school trips safe, sustainable and healthy.
    • Reducing the impact of private vehicles on our streets.
    • Making the public transport network more accessible and the
    natural choice for longer trips.
    • Maintaining our assets for the benefit of the public."

  • Bowes CPZ

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 2 threads

    Parking patterns in the Bowes area have changed. Enfield Council has, in recent years, received numerous enquiries from residents of the area, and petitions covering four different streets that indicate community support for permit parking controls.

    Enfield Council is now seeking views on its proposals for a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ.)

    Why We Are Consulting
    Enfield Council is confident that zonal parking controls will prove popular with residents and offer them greatly improved parking opportunities. Area wide zonal controls can also reduce local congestion and prompt better travel habits amongst those heading to or through the area on their daily commute.

    The Council is consulting to make residents aware of its propsals and to seek their comments before plans are finalised or taken forward.

  • High Street, Barnet Pedestrian Improvements - Statutory Consultation

    Created by JonC // 2 threads

    The revised scheme (largely funded by TfL) incorporates the following measures:

    - Removing much of the parking along the western side of the High street, and widening the pedestrian footway to provide a safer and more enjoyable shopping experience.
    - Upgrade of existing pedestrian crossings, with the added advantage of a shorter crossing width. This should reduce queueing times at the crossing.

    - Proposed new loading restrictions on the High Street and at the junctions of High Street with Union Street and Salisbury Road.
    - Introduction of trees, where physically possible, to both improve the look of the area and have a beneficial effect on the air quality.
    - Introduction of cycle stands to promote sustainable transport and provide secure cycling parking.
    - New benches are proposed to encourage people to stop in the area and enjoy the ambience of the rejuvenated High Street. New bins are also proposed to promote a litter-free High Street.

  • Kentish Town Planning Framework Consultation

    Created by John Chamberlain // 1 thread

    Camden have started consultation on a planning framework for Kentish Town, with specific focus on the Regis Road and Murphy's sites. We'll need to respond, though a cynical view might be that it is a waste of time, given that a similar exercise for the Morrison's site in Chalk Farm had no perceptible effect on the final grant of planning permission. There is a very short consultation period.

  • Proposals for the Creation of a Major Road Network (London)

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    From the DfT:
    As part of the Transport Investment Strategy, the government committed to creating a Major Road Network (MRN).

    This consultation asks for views on:
    how to define the MRN
    the role that local, regional and national bodies will play in the MRN investment programme
    which schemes will be eligible for MRN funding

    A new MRN would help deliver the following objectives:
    reduce congestion
    support economic growth and rebalancing
    support housing delivery
    support all road users
    support the Strategic Road Network

    The creation of an MRN will allow for dedicated funding from the National Roads Fund to be used to improve this middle tier of our busiest and most economically important local authority ‘A’ roads.

  • Healthy School Streets: Acland Burghley School; Proposed Walking, Cycling and Ro

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Students of Acland Burghley use the gate on Burghley Road in the morning; a majority of these who walk to school arrive from Dartmouth Park Hill and Tufnell Park junction. In the afternoon, students leave by a gate on Ingestre Road, from where most of them make their way through Burghley Road to Dartmouth Park Hill and Tufnell Park junction.

    This set of proposals is related to creating a Healthy School Street outside Acland Burghley School. This will prohibit motor vehicles from entering the section of Burghley Road between Dartmouth Park Hill and Oakford Road during school term time, Monday – Friday between 8:00-9:00am and 3:00-4:00pm.

    The restriction will be enforced through the provision of signs and by ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras located at each end of the restricted area. (So there's no need to have a one-way street)

    The following other supporting measures are proposed:

    • Widen the eastern footway on the north side of Ingestre Road by the school gate – moving four parking bays to the other side of the road. (See Plan C)

    • Move a Car Club bay from the restricted area in Burghley Road into a location in Oakford Road. (See Plan A and B)

    • Retain the existing width restriction in Burghley Road and raise the road to footway level. (See Plan C)

    • widen the footway on both sides by the school gate, paint double yellow lines; and resite the cycle strands the width restriction Burghley Road.

  • Beckford School – consultation on road safety improvements, Dornfell Street

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    There are four entrances to Beckford School on the south side of Dornfell Street (for infants, nursery, main and juniors going from west to east). Dornfell Street is one-way westbound – there should be a cycle exception.

    Currently there is ‘School Keep Clear’ marking on the south side of the street outside the nursery and junior entrances while there are two disabled parking bays outside the main entrance. Most of the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings will be replaced by a wider footway.

    The consultation proposes the following measures:

    1. Widen the footway on the north side of the Dornfell Street opposite the nursery entrance (losing one parking space)

    2 Remove the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings and widen the footway outside the nursery entrance. But provide two new parking bays at the western end (i.e. the widened footway doesn’t cover all of the space occupied by the ‘School Keep Clear’ markings.

    3. Widen the footway on the south side of the Dornfell Street outside the junior entrance, leaving the two existing disabled parking bays outside the main entrance.

    4. Install secure cycle parking (Bikehangar - Cyclehoop or Asgard) at the east end of the street – north side.

  • New London Plan 2017

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London.gov.uk says:

    What is the new London Plan?
    The London Plan is one of the most important documents for this city.
    It's a strategic plan which shapes how London evolves and develops. All planning decisions should follow London Plan policies, and it sets a policy framework for local plans across London.
    The current 2016 consolidation Plan is still the adopted Development Plan. However the Draft London Plan is a material consideration in planning decisions. It gains more weight as it moves through the process to adoption, however the weight given to it is a matter for the decision maker.

    Consultation on the draft London Plan
    Consultation on this plan is open. Comments will be publicly available. After the consultation, comments are reviewed by an inspector and you may be called in to discuss comments at the Examination in Public.

    What is an Examination in Public?
    At the end of the consultation period your comments will be reviewed by the independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to carry out the Examination in Public for the London Plan.
    You may be invited to discuss your comments at the Examination in Public. All comments will be made available to the public at the end of the consultation period. The legal provisions for the London Plan are in Part VIII of the Greater London Authority (GLA) Act 1999 (as amended) in sections 334 to 341. The Examination in Public is covered in Section 338.
