  • Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is proposing the following changes intended to improve bus journey times, cycling and pedestrian facilities:

    • A northbound 24/7 bus lane on Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue
    • An advanced stop line and early release for cyclists on Camden Park Road, at the junction with North Villas and Cliff Road, to improve cyclist priority at the junction
    • Removal of parking bays on Camden Park Road and double yellow lines within 10m of South Vilas junction
    • Wider footways for an increased waiting area for parents outside Torriano School, to aid social distancing
    • Remove parking bays to provide more footway space for parents/carers and children accessing Torriano School
    • Additional speed reduction measures along Torriano Avenue, such as more signage and improved speed bumps, to improve pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety

    But they have forgotten to consider removing the speed cushions in Camden Park Road

    The drawing also mentions the potential for vehicle activated speed signs on Torriano Avenue.

    BUT

    • No changes to the junction with Camden Road (the nearside lane will be used by left-turning motor vehicles). People cycling into Torriano Avenue need to be at the front of the ASL and go as fast as they can to reach the bus lane which starts again soon after the entry to Torriano Avenue (in the same place the cycle lane starts now).
    • There is the same left hook risk when passing Busby Crescent which urgently needs a filter (at least a ’No Entry’ but a closure would be better).
    • They don’t mention the railings outside the schools

  • Arlington Road Area LTN - Scheme Amendments

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council recently implemented an LTN in the area around Arlington Road. Following feedback on the scheme, they propose two major amendments

    1. No entry into Arlington Road from Inverness Street (i.e. southbound movements restricted to allow only emergency vehicles and bicycles).

    This filter will be enforced by

    • An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera,
    • Flying Motor Cycle signs
    • Planters.

    Parking and loading will be forbidden within ten metres of this junction.

    Drawing here

    2. New filter on Mornington Place at the junction with Clarkson Row/Mornington Terrace (instead of the filter at Mornington Crescent.

    This new filter will allow cycles to pass and will be enforced by

    • Removable bollards and planters
    • Flying Motor Cycle signs

    The junction of Mornington Place  with Mornington Crescent will revert to two-way operation

  • Camden Council review of parking permits and parking charges

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden Council is consulting on a review of its parking permits and parking charges

    Motivation: diesel vehicle ownership and trips have not reduced sufficiently to address the AQ impact.

    The proposed changes are from April 2021 unless stated otherwise.

    Residents Parking permits

    The diesel surcharge to be raised from 21.5% to 50% of the petrol vehicle permit price  (surcharge ranging from £65 to £237 per annum).

    The petrol vehicle permit price depends on CO2 emissions and ranges from £130-£274 p.a.

    Electric vehicles get free permits.

    Visitors permits

    Not mentioned in the consultation document so presumably remain the same e.g. £1.12 per hour.

    Car clubs

    The current permit price is £289. This will change to a price based on CO2 emissions with a diesel surcharge.

    The price for electric cars will be £86. The lowest CO2 emission polluter pays £289.

    Doctors’ permits

    The same charges as for a  Car Club vehicle.

    Paid for parking sessions

    Currently, the borough is divided into four areas each with different tariffs. The areas with the two lowest tariffs will be merged.

    CO2 emission based charging will be introduced and the diesel surcharge will be raised from 21.5% to 50%

    Electric vehicles pay from £2.40 to £4.14 per hour in areas 1 to 3 while the charge for petrol cars range from £3.43 (lowest polluter in the cheapest area) to £5.15 (highest polluter in most expensive area).

    Increased price for coaches £13.82 per hour.

    Maximum stay of 1 hour where there is currently no maximum and in CPZs with only 2 hours of operation.

    South of Euston Road maximum stay reduced from 2 to 1.5 hour. From April 2022.

    Motorcycle parking

    Discount electric m/c residents’ permit (to £22 p.a.) and increase the price of petrol ones (to £130 p.a.). They also have business permits and visitor permits.

    Convert all dedicated solo m/c bays to shared use with one of the various permits. No more free parking for m/cs.

    Paid for parking £3.42-£5.92 per hour for petrol and £1.72-£2.96 electric per hour.

  • Barnet Draft Long Term Transport Strategy 2020-2041 Consultation

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Update: Strategy adopted by Environment Committee on 09/09/2020

    "Barnet’s population is growing and by 2030 it will have grown to almost 450,000 people, with a significant increase in the older population. We want to ensure that transport in the borough can support this growth and provides a reliable, safe and convenient transport network which supports improvements to air quality and the health of all of our residents."

    "There is also limited road space in the borough and with the projected population growth, congestion can only be addressed by reducing our reliance on the car and encouraging more sustainable and active ways to travel such as walking, cycling and public transport."

    "Our proposed Long Term Transport Strategy sets a direction for change to offer greater choices for travel, encourage more active lifestyles which will increase the health and well-being of Barnet’s residents and improve air quality. The strategy also sets out a number of proposed schemes for each type of travel along with activities to help change behaviour and encourage positive changes to the way we currently travel."

    "

    Our vision

    The strategy includes the following vision statement relating to our long term vision for transport in the borough:

    By 2041, Barnet will have an efficient, convenient and reliable transport network, which enables safe, healthy and inclusive travel, protects the natural environment and supports the borough’s growth.

    The network will have transformed the way people and goods travel, providing strong orbital and radial links which gives everyone a choice of transport modes to complete their journey regardless of age, ability or income.

    This vision informs our proposals for the future of transport in the borough, and sets out a roadmap for achieving our vision which also complements other council policies such as the Growth Strategy(External link), the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy(External link), and the draft Local Plan(External link)."

  • 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."

  • Public Realm & Road Safety Improvements on Cartwright Gardens

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Cartwright Gardens is the middle section of the road that runs south from Euston Road;  the top section being called Mabledon Place and the bottom section  Marchmont Street.

    It is well known to people who cycle (or used to do so before Midland Road opened) into Bloomsbury via the Somerstown route and cross Euston Road from Ossulston Street.

    For as long as I remember, there has been no footway on the side adjacent to the green space on the west side. And when you cycle up there, you often pass forlorn pedestrians keeping close to the fence.

  • Camden Park Road, St. Augustine’s Road and Cliff Villas walking and cycling impr

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    This consultation proposes a cycling and walking link between St  Augustine’s Road and Cliff Villas, the location of Brecknock Primary School.

    They mention connection to the proposed cycle route between Camden and Tottenham Hale that Transport for London will be consulting on in 2020 which is a very valid point even if we’re not sure of its alignment.

  • Gospel Oak – Fleet Road area Safety scheme

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Fleet Road is a one-way street with heavy motor traffic and no protected cycle infrastructure.  This means that people cycling through the area face unpleasant interactions with motor vehicles as well as needing to make diversions to reach destinations in the area,

  • 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.

  • Holborn Vision and Urban Strategy Consultation

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    Camden Council has prepared a draft Vision and Urban Strategy for Holborn and they are running a public consultation open to local residents, businesses, workers, community groups, and everyone else who has an interest in the area.  Their primary aim is to produce a Planning Strategy document to guide Camden's Planning Committee's decisions on construction projects in the area.

    We intend to submit a response by the Cycling Campaign because it clearly interacts with and should complement the Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood Scheme for which funding of around £12m has been announced by TFL and Camden.  The draft for the Vision and Urban Strategy references the Liveable Neighbourhood Scheme and outlines its main proposed actions including the proposed segregated cycle tracks on New Oxford Street and Theobolds Road, so there is no reason to fear a conflict. But the responses to this consultation may have some implications for the LN, so we should respond stating our priorities. 

    Both schemes propose the removal of the Holborn gyratory and the closure of its Procter Street arm creating a traffic free space there instead.
