  • The Royal Parks' draft Movement Strategy

    Created by Simon Munk // 2 threads

    The Royal Park says:
    "The Royal Parks is embarking on an exciting and ambitious journey to develop a Movement Strategy that will influence movement and transportation throughout our parks and London.

    What is the Movement Strategy?

    The Movement Strategy will set a long-term vision for how park visitors will move within, access and subsequently experience the parks.

    The strategy will include a comprehensive exploration of all movement and access related issues and opportunities that are relevant to the parks both now and into the foreseeable future.

    This will include (but is not limited to) increasing safety for all park users, reducing the impact of vehicle-based traffic and reducing conflict between different modes.

    How will it be developed?

    To develop the strategy, we will utilise an evidence-based approach to explore all current and future movement opportunities. Input from key stakeholders, including the general public, will be a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.

    Engagement Phase One – Now Open.

    We are seeking input from key partners including the general public, Transport for London, neighbouring boroughs and all interested parties. This input is a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.This discussion paper sets out the draft aim and principles for our Movement Strategy. These summarise our aspirations and provide the basis for developing a series of bold projects and proposals across all eight parks."

  • A23 Streatham Hill Cycleway

    Created by Simon Still // 2 threads

    Our proposals at a glance  

    Transport for London (TfL), together with Lambeth Council would like to know your views on proposals for improvements which will include:

    • High quality segregated cycle lanes and bus stop bypasses throughout the extent of the scheme
    • Straight-across pedestrian crossings relocated to be where people want to walk and cross the road
    • Zebra crossings proposed to cross the cycle lane to signalised pedestrian crossings across the main carriageway
    • 2 additional pedestrian crossings
    • Bus lanes maintained or implemented and operational hours extended to between 07:00 - 19:00 Monday to Saturday throughout the scheme
    • 20mph speed limit throughout
    • Changes to side road access including restrictions and closures, redesign and resurfacing
    • New traffic signals at the Telford Avenue junction
    • Improvements to public realm throughout the route, unlocking areas by removing central brick build planters and planting of new trees and landscaping
    • Changes to some parking and loading provision  

    To complement this scheme we have been working with Lambeth Council to develop a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in the nearby residential areas to the east of the A23. This will complement the A23 scheme by protecting local streets from through traffic and will help deliver wider objectives such as creating Healthy Routes on local roads. Visit the consultation page of Lambeth’s website from the 22 February 2020 to find out more.

  • Thessaly Road SW8

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Council says:

    Wandsworth Council would like to hear your views on proposed improvements for pedestrians and cyclists along Thessaly Road, enhancing access and the local environment.

    As motorised vehicle movements are relatively low on Thessaly Road, the proposals aim to provide safer infrastructure for more vulnerable road users.

    The proposed introduction of raised, controlled crossing points would benefit pedestrians, particularly school children visiting local community facilities and St George’s Primary School, whilst also slowing traffic speeds along Thessaly Road.

    Within the scope of the scheme, Thessaly Road would also have new raised ‘Copenhagen style’ junctions with side roads, to create an improved pedestrian and cycle user experience and slow down traffic joining Thessaly Road. ‘Copenhagen style’ junctions allow cyclists and pedestrians to have priority over vehicles exiting the side roads. The scheme will also include installation of new high-quality paving materials and new cycle parking.

    A segregated cycle track would provide a safe route for cyclists between Battersea Park Road at the north end (which is the subject of proposed improvements being developed in partnership with Transport for London) and Wandsworth Road and Lambeth to the south. It would also provide a safe route to the two new Northern Line Extension stations opening in 2021.

    The proposals include improvements to the public realm at the junction of Condell Road, Deeley Road and Battersea Park Road, featuring new seating areas and new planting.

    The scheme is part of a package of infrastructure improvements in the area which include proposals for a Controlled Parking Zone and a colourful ‘Happy Street’ redesign for the Thessaly Road rail bridge, all funded by contributions from developers in the area.

    In line with strategic masterplans for the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area, Thessaly Road has been identified as a key strategic link for cycle and pedestrian movements from north to south through the opportunity area, and so the proposed improvements reflect the need to meet changing demands of this growing central London area.

    It is important for the Council to know the views of local residents and businesses before progressing with any improvements.

  • Safer Junctions - Clapham Road and Union Road and Clapham Road and Stirling Road

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    In the last three years, there were 23 collisions at this junction, 18 of which were people cycling. (Data available up to 30 September 2018).  

    A number of issues have been identified with the current junction layout:  

    • Difficult for road users to turn right from A3 Clapham Road into Union Road. People making this turn are allowed to proceed at the same time as the A3 northbound traffic is moving, leading to right-turning drivers seeking short gaps in the traffic and turning impatiently or without enough care.  People cycling northbound nearer the kerb may be hidden by other vehicles, increasing the risk of them being struck.
    • Northbound cyclists vulnerable to left-turning traffic. There are a lot of cyclists heading north into central London in the morning peak. Drivers turning left into Union Road have to cross this flow of cyclists.
    • Advanced stop lines (ASL) for cyclists at the junction are too small. The number of cyclists using the junction at peak times means the ASL boxes can not safely protect everyone cycling, particularly people cycling northbound along Clapham Road in the morning peak.
    • Poor junction alignment with Stirling Road. Many vehicles turn right from Stirling Road onto the A3 and then turn left into Union Road, cutting across two lanes of traffic including cyclists.

  • Safe speeds for central London – introducing 20mph speed limits

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Overview

    We want your views on our proposals to make the streets we manage in central London 20mph by 2020 and the associated measures.

    Last year, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), we published the Vision Zero Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out our ambition to eliminate death and serious injury from London’s transport network by 2041.

    It details our plans to reduce road danger, including proposals to implement a 20mph speed limit on the roads we operate and manage in central London. 

    We’ve been working to determine the most effective way of implementing the new speed limits and are now ready to share our plans with you.

    We’ve provided more information about our proposals on this page and would like your feedback before we progress this important safety programme.

  • Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood - First engagement (commonplace)

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood aims to realise the great potential Brixton has for walking and cycling while improving air quality, reducing congestion, supporting local businesses and providing for the growth in jobs and homes planned for the area.

    We successfully bid for funding from Transport for London (TfL) to deliver these aims. At the heart of our proposal is transforming Atlantic Road in the town centre, but the ambition goes well beyond this, with proposals to create ‘low traffic neighbourhoods’ in adjacent residential areas that link communities together and ‘healthy routes’ for walking and cycling. Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood is the cornerstone of Lambeth’s Draft Transport Strategy, which seeks to allow people to live healthier lives and create better places for everyone to enjoy.

    This is the first stage of consultation, collecting resident and user comments about the area.

  • Waterloo and South Bank Public Realm Framework

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Waterloo and South Bank is experiencing significant development and economic growth. This brings both benefits and challenges, including increased pressure on infrastructure and the public realm.

    To understand the public realm Improvement needs of the area better and to prioritise and direct resources, Lambeth Council has worked with urban design and public realm consultants, Publica, to develop a Draft Public Realm Framework.

    The Framework provides an assessment of the existing public realm and identifies opportunities for improvement across Bishop’s Ward, Lambeth. Based on a rigorous baseline audit of streets and spaces, it establishes six guiding principles to shape better placemaking. These principles inform and infuse 18 location specific spatial briefs that describe the type of improvements that should be considered in each location.

    The Draft Public Realm Framework is intended to underpin the Lambeth Local Plan and other strategic documents, provide direction to the public and private sector, help secure support and funding from a variety of public and private sources, and act as a springboard for the improvement and investment necessary to support growth, resilience, independence and place.

  • Kensington & Chelsea LIP

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    The Mayor of London published his Transport Strategy (MTS) in March 2018. The aim is for 80 per cent of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041 (compared with 63 per cent in 2015).

    Our Third LIP sets out how we plan to implement the MTS locally as well as our other local transport-related priorities. LIPs are statutory documents and all London boroughs must prepare and submit their LIPs to Transport for London (TfL) for Mayor of London approval. See the MTS on the London.gov website.

    There are four main elements of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's LIP:

    • A set of Borough Transport Objectives covering the 2019/20 to 2021/22 three-year LIP period and beyond.
    • The transport challenges and opportunities that we face in the borough.
    • A Delivery Plan of schemes, initiatives and policies covering the period 2019/20 to 2021/22.
    • LIP targets and delivery indicators.
    The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Commonplace survey

    To help shape the themes of our LIP we ran an online map-based ‘Commonplace’ survey during the summer of 2018, inviting people to tell us the kind of transport improvements they would like to see in their local area. See the online map.

    407 people responded to the question ‘What is your biggest concern about getting around on Kensington and Chelsea's streets? Amongst all respondents the top five concerns in descending order were:

    • cycling doesn’t feel safe
    • pollution
    • speed of traffic
    • too much rat-running
    • congestion for cars

    Amongst those who stated that they lived in the borough the top five concerns were:

    • pollution
    • speed of traffic
    • congestion for cars
    • too much rat-running
    • cycling doesn’t feel safe
    Key projects, policies and initiatives proposed in our LIP include:
    • considering pedestrians’ wish for ‘green man’ facilities at busy junctions, which will reduce traffic capacity and increase queues, even if these would not have the traditional road casualty based justification
    • consulting on introducing pilot 20 mph limits in some streets and areas
    • examining TfL's proposals to improve conditions for walking and cycling along the Holland Park Avenue/Notting Hill Gate/Bayswater Road corridor
    • introducing one or more ‘floating’ car clubs, which allow customers to make one-way trips, paying by the minute, without having to return the car to a dedicated bay
    • reviewing the case for taking on powers to enforce moving traffic offences, such as yellow box junctions and banned turns, to make sure road users observe traffic restrictions
    • a trial of part-time ‘school streets’ in which motor vehicle access is limited at school drop-off and pick-up times to encourage children to walk to school and improve safety
    • considering opportunities to introduce restrictions to move traffic away from residential roads in some circumstances
    • working with TfL to find sites for rapid electric vehicle chargers

  • Duke Hill St/Tooley St

    Created by SallyEva // 1 thread

    Proposals include:

    Introducing a 20mph speed limit along entire length of Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street (between Borough High Street and Tower Bridge Road)
    Introducing a 2 metre wide mandatory cycle lane westbound, on Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street, running between Borough High Street and Bermondsey Street junctions, separated from traffic with wands on the Duke Street Hill section
    Introducing a protected right turn ‘pocket’ for cyclists waiting to turn right into Bermondsey Street from Tooley Street
    Making Duke Street Hill no entry, apart from cyclists and buses, from the junction with A3 Borough High Street. This will mean that eastbound traffic along Duke Street Hill and Tooley Street as far as the junction with Bermondsey Street is restricted to buses and cycles only.
    Restricting access from side roads onto Tooley Street to westbound travel only. Any motorized vehicle turning onto Tooley Street from the following roads will not be able to turn onto and travel eastbound towards Bermondsey Street:
    Tooley Street onto Duke Hill Street
    Bridge Yard onto Tooley Street
    Cottons Lane onto Tooley Street
    Hay’s Lane onto Tooley Street
    Battlebridge Lane onto Tooley Street
    Westbound traffic will continue to be able to travel along this section of highway as it does at present (i.e. accessing via Bermondsey Street or from roads further east) which lead onto Tooley Street.

    This will be an interim scheme, reducing traffic in the short term. We are working on a more transformational scheme for Tooley Street, to extend the high-quality cycling provision proposed as part of Cycle Superhighway 4 towards London Bridge.

  • Quietway 5 - Pathfield Road Scheme

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Quietway 5 is a cycle route linking Waterloo to Norbury that passes through Lambeth North, Vauxhall and Clapham. Following the delivery of the one way closure on Estreham Road we are working on a scheme to address the issues in Pathfield Road.

    The Options Considered

    The top three solutions mentioned at the event that have been assessed were;

    Relocating or removing the existing point closure in Estreham Road
    A residents parking scheme
    Introduction of traffic restrictions to reduce traffic volumes
    Relocating the existing barrier on Estreham Road was considered, however, this would simply redistribute the traffic on to more local roads and not necessarily address the issue of rat-running traffic, speeding and increased parking on Pathfield Road. Also, the scheme to retain the point closure at Estreham Road received majority support from the wider community after the trial period in 2016.

    Options around parking controls in the area are being coordinated by the CPZ team. They are analysing the feedback from the Streatham parking attitudinal survey carried out at beginning of 2018 and will be providing feedback in the coming months.

    Given the above, the council's view is that the introduction of traffic restrictions to reduce the amount of traffic on Pathfield Road is the best option to address the issues raised at the meeting. We are also proposing speed humps to reduce general traffic speeds. The main proposals are detailed in the plan below.

    The Proposals

    You can view the proposals at the link below. The main changes proposed are;

    No-entry except cycles from Estreham Road to Pathfield Road, to prevent the majority of rat-running traffic from using Pathfield Road
    New sinusoidal humps installed along Pathfield Road to reduce general traffic speeds.
    No-entry except cycles from Greyhound Lane to Rotherhill Avenue, to prevent any rat running traffic that might use this route
    Junction improvements, with new greening/tree planting at Pathfield Road/Estreham Road. This proposal will require the loss of 1 informal parking space.

  • Nine Elms Pimlico bridge

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Flyer says:
    Wandsworth Council is proposing a pedestrian and cycle bridge to
    connect Westminster and the new neighbourhood emerging in Nine Elms
    as well as the existing communities south of the river.
    The connection will improve access to this new shopping, restaurant and
    cultural district, as well as the new green spaces, thousands of jobs and
    Northern Line stations.
    Following consultation in 2017 on nine possible locations between
    Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges we have now selected three location
    options for further exploration.
    We want to find out what you think about this new car free bridge so are
    holding public exhibitions across Wandsworth, Westminster and Lambeth.
    Join us to learn more about the proposal and help shape one of London’s
    most exciting infrastructure projects. See the back of this leaflet for time
    and location details.
    You can also find out more and tell us your views online from Monday 5

  • partial filter on Champion Hill to improve Q7

    Created by SallyEva // 1 thread

    council says:
    traffic surveys show that most of the traffic on Champion Hill is through traffic, avoiding Grove Park, Champion Park and Denmark Hill, particularly north-bound in the morning peak. The trial is intended therefore to restrict the morning through traffic, travelling westwards/northwards through Champion Hill to Denmark Hill, so that the area is safer and more pleasant for walking and cycling creating Healthy Streets for everyone in Champion Hill. We believe this will also reduce traffic dominance on Grove Hill Road around Dog Kennel Hill school.

    From a cycling POV this will improve safety on Q7 in the evenings.
    Experimental traffic order 6-12mths

  • Newington trial width restrictions

    Created by SallyEva // 1 thread

    some of the roads in the Newington area have a higher than expected volume of lorries and other large vehicles using them as a cut-through from the major roads. This makes the local roads less safe and more unpleasant for residents and other road users.

    council is proposing to install trial width restrictions in the form of traffic islands that narrow the road to 198cm (6ft 6in) - to prevent large vehicles from using the route at several points in the area.

    no detailed drawings -- width restrictions on Harper Road had cycle bypasses -- important that these do too. Width restrictions on Harper Road repeatedly vandalised -- continual monitoring and replacement needs to be factored in.

  • Bedford Hill, Balham (pre-consultation public engagement)

    Created by jon_events // 1 thread

    Bedford Hill between Balham Station Road and Balham High Road is to be improved, and local people are being asked for their views.

    Money is available through the Wandsworth Local Fund - a charge paid by developers to fund improvements to the local area.

    The council's drawn up preliminary ideas and wants to know what residents think of them. We will use your feedback to develop detailed designs prior to a formal consultation.

    Comments received from local businesses, residents and ward councillors previously suggest that key areas for improvement are the condition and appearance of the footway, having less street furniture, or putting it in a better place, increased cycle parking and making the road an attractive place offering a variety of high quality goods and services to residents and visitors.

    Bedford Hill from Balham High Road to the junction with Balham Station Road would be improved with new footways in high quality materials. Granite paving could be installed similar to that in Hildreth Street.

    'Entry treatments' - which raise the start of the road up to the same level as the footway, would help reduce the dominance of cars and will make it easier for wheelchair users and people pushing prams. See Figure 3 (Blended crossing). Decluttering will remove any unnecessary signage and street furniture to improve the appearance of the area and to maximise space on the footway.

    Depending on the location of underground utilities, it may be possible to introduce sustainable drainage and more street trees. Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) minimise surface water run-off and include street trees and plants, increased biodiversity and adaptation to climate change.

    There is the opportunity to resurface the road in a different colour through using a subtle coloured aggregate within the asphalt or an overlaid surface treatment, see figure 1. Removing the centre line also encourages drivers to be more considerate, less aggressive and drive at lower speeds.

    Earlier this year a boroughwide 20mph speed limit was implemented on residential roads (excluding all A and B roads). A review of traffic speeds, volumes and accidents will be carried out in late 2018 and subject to this review it may be possible to implement a 20mph speed limit on this section of Bedford Hill (B242) if there is local support.

    The council is also exploring the possibility of including a pedestrian crossing outside The Bedford public house at the junction of Bedford Hill/Balham Station Road and Fernlea Road. We are currently working closely with Transport for London to investigate the feasibility of the crossing. If it is possible and there is local support, we hope to include it as part of the Bedford Hill scheme.

    It is important for the council to know the views of local residents and businesses before going ahead with any of these proposals.
