    • Widening of footways, including the removal of three parking spaces, to create a better environment for pedestrians.
    • Introduction of raised features on Colombo Street and Hatfields to further slow vehicular traffic and improve pedestrian accessibility.
    • Removal of redundant street clutter such as bollards and non-essential signage and the introduction of additional cycle stands.
    • The removal of the island at the junction of Meymott Street and Hatfields allowing us to build out the footway.

  • 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

  • Quietway7 Update – What’s Next?

    Created by Gipsy Hill // 2 threads

    Introduction:
    Quietway7 links a cycle route from Elephant & Castle (E&C) with Crystal Palace, and was routed by TfL to be via Dulwich Village, West Norwood (Thurlow Park Road), Gipsy Hill and then Crystal Palace (via Farquhar Road).

    The route from E&C southbound is in Southwark (to Dulwich) then is in Lambeth (Turney Road, Rosendale Road/Thurlow Park Road, Hamilton Road, to Gipsy Hill), then goes back into Southwark (from Gipsy Hill to Crystal Palace). Southwark had their part of the quietway consultation approved.

    Lambeth delayed their decision to June 2017, and was then subsequently “called in” as there was widespread concerns from both the local community and cycling groups for parts of the route. Cycling groups unanimously objected to the proposed design along Gipsy Hill by: Southwark Cyclists, Lambeth Cyclists and Wheels for Wellbeing. 70% of respondents objected to the the design on Gipsy Hill. Gipsy Hill is a busy Local Distributor Road and bus route. Gipsy Hill has “insufficient road width” for a segregated track. The original proposed design meant motor vehicles “will encroach on the advisory cycle lane” to allow oncoming motor vehicles to pass.

    Gipsy Hill Options:
    There are alterative options to avoid Gipsy Hill. Southwark Cyclists have supported the design option to follow LCN23 downhill all the way along Dulwich Wood Avenue and then using the other side of Long Meadow (so not using Gipsy Hill), with a new track behind the bus stop.

    See navy dashed line on sketch attached (mauve was the proposed Q7 design, red is LCN23)

    This design is quieter and safer than using Gipsy Hill, and avoids the proposed dangerous junction Gipsy Hill/ Dulwich Wood Avenue, near the rail station. This integrated design also allows greatest cycle access to local amenities, schools, shops, and parks in Dulwich, West Dulwich and West Norwood. There is interest and outline support from Southwark to explore this option.

    Next Steps:
    Lambeth are now actively progressing engagement and revised designs for their part of the route, with a new consultation process due in September. There is potential for an improved option at Gipsy Hill, but this is likely to need new additional funding from TfL.

    Suggested, to let local Gipsy Hill Ward Cllrs (Lambeth) and College Ward Cllrs (Southwark) and local cycling groups know your views.

    What are Quietway?
    London Cycling Design Standards, Chapter 1 (page 15):
    Quietways “..are aimed at new cyclists who want a safe, unthreatening experience.” The key principles for Quietways include:
    o Routes should be on the quietest available roads consistent with directness;
    o Routes should be as straight and direct as possible;
    o where they have to join busier roads, or pass through busy, complicated junctions, segregation must be provided;

  • Peckham Rye to Dulwich Quietway

    Created by Luce // 1 thread

    New QW in preconsultation phase - possible changes:

    * Raised table at jct/ of Friern and Goodrich Rd. ;
    * Sinusoidal humps completed all along Friern rd.;
    * 'Greening' of modal filters at Peckham Rye/ Friern & Upland/ Friern;
    * Potential for either a segregated bidirectional cycle lane from Etherow st. & across the junction of Barry rd. (helping cyclists to turn right down Woodwarde) or the signalisation of the junction of Etherow and Barry rd. (the former would require the relocation of the bus stand at the top of Barry rd.);
    * Tightening up of the jct. of Eynella and Woodewarde rd. (build out);
    * Build out of of western corner of Beauval rd./ Woodwarde rd. - potential for pocket park;
    * (Dependent on TFL modelling) removal of traffic islands on jct. of Lordship ln. and Barry rd./ Eyenella - de-cluttering of jct. - question of what turns are allowed and needed & the regulation of these.

  • Junction of A100 Tower Bridge Road and Tanner Street

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL Overview
    In partnership with the London Borough of Southwark, we have developed proposals to improve the provision for cyclists and other road users around Tower Bridge Road/Tanner Street junction, and we would like to hear your views.

    What are we proposing?
    The proposals are part of the Central London Grid – a network of cycle routes in Zone 1. The route passes along Tanner Street, Southwark Council consulted on proposals on the rest of the route in autumn 2015, including proposals for the one-way operation of Tanner Street. Our proposals aim to improve safety and create more space for cyclists, and have been coordinated with Southwark Council’s designs.
    Our proposals also include changes to traffic and bus lanes, as well as new traffic restrictions and improved pedestrian crossings.

    The enclosed consultation drawing shows the proposals for this junction. The numbered descriptions below correspond with the numbered labels on the drawing.
    1 Carriageway to be widened by 0.5 metres to improve traffic flow. There will still be sufficient width maintained on the footway.
    2 Centre lines to be altered to provide two northbound general traffic lanes further back from the junction with Druid Street
    3 New one-way westbound on Tanner Street between Tower Bridge Road and Archie Street to create space for a segregated two-way cycle track
    4 New one-way eastbound on Tanner Street between Tower Bridge Road and Pope Street to allow for contraflow cycle provision
    5 Segregated bi- directional cycle track to allow cyclists to approach and exit the junction with substantially reduced risk of conflict with motor vehicles
    6 New segregated contraflow cycle track to parallel crossing to allow for safer approach for cyclists, and to decrease potential conflict between modes of traffic. This would require the relocation of a loading bay (see 9 and 10)
    7 New parallel cycle/pedestrian crossing to connect the cycle route on Tanner Street and allow cyclists to conveniently cross Tower Bridge Road separately from pedestrians
    8 Cycle stands to be relocated to allow for widened traffic lanes on the approach to the junction, and to prevent conflict between traffic modes
    9 Loading bay relocated from Tanner Street to Tower Bridge Road to create space for the contraflow cycle track (see 6). The same operating hours will apply
    10 New position of relocated loading bay from Tanner Street (see 9)
    11 Loading bay relocated 12m south to provide enough space for traffic to merge. Operating hours will remain the same.
    12 New bus lane (Hours of operation: Mon –Sat, 7am-10am, 4pm-7pm) to make journeys faster and more reliable for bus passengers. We would create space by moving the centre line on this section of Tower Bridge Road.
