  • 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.

  • High Barnet Station Development

    Created by JonC // 2 threads

    A major housing development of 450 new homes is proposed around High Barnet Station, east of Barnet Hill. It includes a Cycle Hub, but no details on safe space of cycling to the station. It means removal of a large number of trees to build high-rise blocks.

    "Our proposals aim to deliver new, enhanced public space and much needed homes around High Barnet station and to improve the interchange between different modes of transport.

    Our vision is to improve the connections between Chipping Barnet and Underhill, support local businesses in the town centre, deliver tangible benefits for the local community and provide new green spaces throughout the site.

    We will do this whilst keeping the station open."

  • A41-A598 Burgess Hill

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Cyclists going straight up the Finchley Road from Swiss Cottage to Golders Green have to cross two lanes of fast A41 traffic, where the Hendon Way turns off to the left.One possible solution would be for cycles to remain on the left and have a facility to use the pedestrian crossing across the top of the Hendon Way. Recommended route via Ardwick Road/Burgess Hill is not efficient and involves crossing 2 lanes when rejoining Finchley Road.

  • Drayton Park School Streets Consultation

    Created by David Lincoln // 0 threads

    Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Drayton Park Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.

    The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Arvon Road, between Drayton Park and Witherington Road, between 8.30am - 9.15am and 3.15pm - 4pm during school term time.

    Vehicles will not be able to enter the street between these times unless they have been given an
    exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register foran exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends.

    Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.

  • Six new routes

    Created by Simon Parker // 1 thread

    Green light for development of six new cycle routes across London

    TfL’s Strategic Cycling Analysis identified the top 25 connections where new cycling infrastructure is required to enable more people to cycle. Further work between TfL and the boroughs has identified these six routes as the initial routes to take forward to the design stage. The routes will extend from Tottenham in the north, to Peckham in the south, and from Barking in the east, to Willesden Junction in the west, "helping to create a pan-London network of high-quality cycle routes".

    The new routes are, it is claimed, an important further step in making the investment required to achieve the Mayor's aim, set out in the draft Mayor's Transport Strategy, of 80 per cent of journeys being made by foot, bike or public transport by 2041.

    TfL and the boroughs will now begin design work on:

    Lea Bridge to Dalston (3)
    This 3km route would link the City and Waltham Forest by filling the gap between Lea Bridge Road and Cycle Superhighway 1 at Dalston

    Ilford to Barking Riverside (10)
    This 8km route would link two bustling outer London town centres and a major growth area with up to 10,800 new homes and a new London Overground connection – while enhancing access to the Elizabeth line and London Overground services

    Hackney to the Isle of Dogs (5)
    This 8km route would stretch from Hackney to the Isle of Dogs via Canary Wharf, Mile End and Victoria Park

    Rotherhithe to Peckham (12)
    This 4km route would link Peckham with key and growing destinations such as Canada Water and Surrey Quays, and connect up other cycling routes such as Quietway 1 and the proposed Cycle Superhighway 4

    Tottenham Hale to Camden (2)
    This 8km route would connect major town centres and will cover seven junctions identified as being among the 73 with the worst safety records

    Wembley to Willesden Junction
    This 5km route would be north-west London’s first major cycle route, connecting Wembley, Stonebridge Park and Willesden Junction. Future sections will connect to planned infrastructure in west London such as CS9 and CS10.

    The Mayor is also committed to providing a new river crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf for pedestrians and cyclists, which ultimately could link the proposed cycle routes between Hackney and Peckham to create a continuous 12km cycle route. An initial review of the recent consultation on the proposed Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf Crossing showed strong support for the project. TfL is still analysing all the responses and will be announcing the full results of the consultation in the coming months.

    Sadiq Khan said: "I've committed to invest record amounts in making cycling easier and safer for Londoners, and I'm delighted that work is now beginning on designing the next generation of high-quality cycle routes across the capital.

    "Working closely with the boroughs, we’re providing new routes in both inner and outer London, including in areas that haven’t previously seen serious investment in cycling infrastructure."

  • London Assembly Transport Committee Bus network design, safety

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London Assembly said:
    "Buses are the busiest form of public transport in London. The city has 675 bus routes, with around 9,000 buses in operation and over 19,000 bus stops. Approximately 2.5 billion bus passenger trips are made every year, around double the number made on London Underground.
    "TfL commissions private operators to run bus services in London, awarding seven-year contracts to operate bus routes. Although bus safety (in terms of casualty numbers) has improved over recent years, there was a spike in bus collision fatalities in 2015.
    "The London Assembly Transport Committee is investigating two aspects of bus services in London: Network Design and Safety."

  • Mayor's Transport Strategy

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Draft Mayor's Transport Strategy 2017
    On June 21 Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, published a draft of the Mayor's Transport Strategy. The document sets out the Mayor’s policies and proposals to reshape transport in London over the next 25 years.

    About the strategy

    Transport has the potential to shape London, from the streets Londoners live, work and spend time on, to the Tube, rail and bus services they use every day.

    By using the Healthy Streets Approach to prioritise human health and experience in planning the city, the Mayor wants to change London’s transport mix so the city works better for everyone.

    Three key themes are at the heart of the strategy.

    1. Healthy Streets and healthy people
    Creating streets and street networks that encourage walking, cycling and public transport use will reduce car dependency and the health problems it creates.

    2. A good public transport experience
    Public transport is the most efficient way for people to travel over distances that are too long to walk or cycle, and a shift from private car to public transport could dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on London’s streets.

    3. New homes and jobs
    More people than ever want to live and work in London. Planning the city around walking, cycling and public transport use will unlock growth in new areas and ensure that London grows in a way that benefits everyone.

  • TfL consultation: A406 crossing at Palmerston Road N13

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    The proposed changes by TfL are on their website here: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/bowes-road-palmerston-road/

    Some initial thoughts are:

    1) The staggered crossing already makes crossing by bike or on foot slow and unpleasant, with a long wait on the island where air quality is bad. A one-stage crossing would be far preferable. This is a route used by families on their way to school.

    On this point, I've noticed that when there is a green light to cross the A406 eastbound, westbound traffic seems to be held at the A105 lights - so it is sometimes possible to cross the whole road if you ignore the red signal on the westbound side. Surely therefore this could be converted to a green signal all the way across without delaying traffic?

    2) A modal filter where Palmerston Road meets the A406 would make that section of the route much safer and more attractive for walking and cycling.

    3) A wider point worth making: If Palmerston Road is part of Quietway 10, then surely more than one filter is necessary along its length to make it low-traffic and low-speed. Currently cycling on it is stressful, as a narrow road where drivers may be impatient at being behind a bike. Filtering would improve it both as a cycling route and for residents. This is especially important given that there are no plans to provide safe space for cycling on Green Lanes south of Palmerston Crescent, so filtering Palmerston Road could create a safe route for commuter cycling which currently doesn't exist.

  • A406 North Circular: Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and Golders Green Road/Brent Street junction

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Overview
    We are proposing improvements for pedestrians and cyclists along the A406 North Circular from Bridge Lane to Golders Green Road and at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. The proposals include converting some sections of footway to shared use for pedestrian and cyclists, and a new staggered shared pedestrian/cycle ‘toucan’ crossing on the westbound carriageway, adjacent to the Woodlands retaining wall.
    The proposals for the crossing are in response to safety concerns that pedestrians are crossing the A406 independently and using the central reservation as a waiting area, rather than using the pedestrian footbridge located at the junction. The existing pedestrian footbridge will remain as a secondary crossing point for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists to use.

    We propose the following:
    - A new ‘toucan’ crossing for pedestrians and cyclists on the A406 North Circular westbound carriageway, adjacent to A406 Woodlands retaining wall. This would involve widening the central reservation by 4 metres to accommodate the crossing, central waiting area and guard railing, which in turn would require minor widening of the carriageway into the footway on the north west corner of the junction
    - New shared use footway for pedestrian and cyclists at the A406 junction with Golders Green Road and Brent Street. This would involve resurfacing the footways on three of the four corners of the junction to ensure surface consistency; we would also resurface the footway north of the junction to link to our current footway works at the Woodlands retaining wall. Signage and tactile paving would be used
    - Improve the shared use footway facilities from south of Bridge Lane to link to existing shared use facilities north of Courtleigh Gardens. This would involve resurfacing the footway to ensure surface consistency and adding new signage
    - Build a retaining wall to enable widening of the footway into the grass verge embankment just south of Bridge Lane
    - Widen the existing unsignalised crossing located across Golders Green Road to 3.2 metres to enhance facilities for the north/south movement
    - Introduce Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists on the Brent Street and Golders Green Road approaches

  • TfL Consultation: Proposed improvements at the Nag’s Head on A1 Holloway Road

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/streets/a1-holloway-road

    A1 Holloway Road - Nag's Head
    Overview
    Transport for London (TfL) has developed proposals to improve road safety for pedestrians and cyclists on the A1 Holloway Road in the Nag’s Head area.

    The main objective of the scheme is to put in place a pedestrian crossing on the A1 Holloway Road, enabling people to cross the road easily and safely and to improve access to businesses on the south-western side of the road.

    In summary, the proposed measures include the following:

    New signalised pedestrian crossing outside the Nag’s Head Shopping Centre

    New cycle lanes in both directions

    Advanced stop lines added to the junctions of Holloway Road and Tollington Road/Camden Road and Seven Sisters/Parkhurst Road

    Resurfacing of the footway and carriageway
    In order to make space for these improvements some other changes are required. These include

    Relocation of the northbound bus stop (Stop L) approximately 50m north of its existing location

    Changes to parking and loading provision, with and overall slight reduction in parking and loading availability

    Loss of one small tree on the median island where the crossing will be located. There may also be the potential loss of one other small tree and two relatively mature trees due to kerb cutbacks required in order to relocate the bus stop.

    Relocation of several items of street furniture including the removal of a redundant telephone box
    The proposals are shown on the attached map. In addition to these proposals, an informal pedestrian crossing with a central refuge island is planned for the A1 Holloway Road adjacent to Jackson Road.

    All of the measures that we propose are subject to change as a result of this consultation. Given no unforeseen issues, it is anticipated that the scheme will be implemented in Spring 2014.

    Please gives us your views by completing our online consultation form below by Monday 6 January 2014.
