  • Cockfosters station major development

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    NO MENTION OF IMPROVED BUS, PEDESTRIAN OR CYCLE ACCESS.

    TfL and Grainger plc are working in partnership to prepare plans for a residential development at the Cockfosters station car park site.

    - Utilise brownfield, public sector land to help deliver around 400 new private and affordable homes for rent;
    - Preserve and enhance the setting of the Grade II listed London Underground station;
    - Through quality design, create a positive relationship between any new development and Trent Park Conservation Area and
    Grade II listed park and gardens which form part of the Greenbelt;
    - To create new public and private spaces and improve the access point to the London Loop trail and Trent Park;
    - To encourage a shift to more sustainable modes of public transport and reduce the need to travel by car in the local area; and
    - To deliver a car-free development, with the exception of disabled car parking for both station users and new residents.

    An initial public event was held on 18th June. A detailed public exhibition is due autumn 2019 followed by a detailed planning application.

  • Segregated cycle path on approach to North Circular

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    The A105 southbound has segregated cycle lanes and then a bus lane until the bus lane ends just short of the North Circular. The bus lane ending creates a vicious pinch point for cyclists with a metal barrier on the left and cars pushing into the lane from the right to avoid the queue of vehicles turning right into the North Circular.

    As the pavement on the left is very wide, there is enough space to paint a short stretch of bicycle lane onto the pavement, starting where the bus lane ends (so as to not interfere with the bus stop) and ending at Regents Avenue where the road is wide enough and one can continue into the bicycle box at the North Circular junction.

  • Firs Lane Quiet Way Link 2

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 3 threads

    Firs Farm park has undergone a transformation with the wetlands project and more exciting facilities are planned. This proposed Quietway cycle route will make it easier and safer for Enfield residents to get there by bike or by foot.

  • ECC - 9 Contraflow signs needed on Devonshire Rd N13

    Hamish F // 0 threads

    There are no contraflow signs when entering Devonshire Rd from Adermans Hill. Cyclists have reported hostility towards them as they ride "against the flow". The markings are correct as the cyclist enters Devonshire Rd from A105 but of course the drivers do not see that.

  • ECC 1 - Serious safety issues at junction A105 / Green Dragon Lane

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    A105 Junction Green Dragon lane

    Serious safety issue due to low visability of cycle lane and wide sweeping junction allowing drivers to turn at speed. The danger areas are one of the two lanes of traffic exiting GDL not giving way to bikes, or a left hook by drivers turning into GDL (cyclists will not have seen driver signaling from behind).

    This junction should always have been either a) signalised or b) low-traffic neighbourhood treatment given to Green Dragon Lane and area to reduce traffic volume on GDL.

    We suggest:
    1) reducing GDL to two lanes only;
    2) removing ped island;
    3) adding reclaimed space to footway to make carriageway narrower to cross;
    4) set back cycle lane one car's length before the junction, as for eg Park Ave treatment.

  • ECC 3 - Short green signal at junction A105 / Station Road

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    Short, delayed green signal for cyclists NB with push button at junction A105 / Station Road. Most cyclists stay in the carriageway We suggest removing push button and a green cycle phase northbound moving with the traffic on Green Lanes. Drivers turning into Station Road will have to give way to bikes going ahead, with the same rules applying as for cars turning into any side road. This is easy and should be a quick fix!

  • ECC 4 - Cycle lane crosses a very wide junction at Fox Lane / A105

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    At A105 junction Fox Lane, north-bound cycle lane crosses a very wide junction - difficult to cross Fox Ln on foot, flared turning allows vehicles to turn at speed
    1) Filtered permeability in Fox Lane neighbourhood would reduce traffic volume and the dangers at this junction;
    2) failing that, perhaps a narrow entrance to Fox Lane with a planter in the carriageway or
    3) a parallel zebra crossing over the mouth of the junction
