  • 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.

  • Two consultations essential for Delancey-Pratt

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden consultation: Proposed walking & cycling improvements on Bayham Street and Greenland Street TfL consultation: Proposed changes to bus route 31 Way back in 2015, after consultation, Camden approved a proposal for an east-west segregated cycle route across Camden Town along Delancey Street and Pratt Street (generally referred to as ‘Delancey-Pratt’). See the original discussion on CycleScape. https://www.cyclescape.org/issues/1863-consultation-on-delancey-pratt-august-2015 The proposals include the banning of the right turn from Pratt Street into Camden High Street in order to provide a safe two-way cycle crossing over Camden High Street. Unfortunately this turn is part of the route for buses 31, N31 and N28. The current consultations deal with a minor modification to the Bus Route so that it uses Greenland Street instead of Pratt Street. Camden’s consultation deals with the details of modifications to the roads, signals and relocation of bus stops: https://consultations.wearecamden.org/supporting-communities/bayham-greenland/ TfL’s consultation is concerned with the re-routing and the exact locations of the bus stops: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/route-31/

  • North-South Cycle Superhighway (extension to Kings Cross)

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 3 threads

    The North-South Cycle Superhighway is already under construction between Stonecutter Street and Elephant & Castle. TfL, together with Camden and Islington Councils, is now consulting on proposals to extend it north up to King’s Cross. The proposal is that it should continue north on Farringdon Road to Greville Street where northbound cyclists would turn onto a quiet back-street route to King’s Cross. Southbound cyclists from King’s Cross would turn off the back-street route onto Farringdon Road at Ray Street via a new signalised junction and continue south on a stepped cycle track. Detailed proposals Section 1 - Farringdon Street (between Stonecutter Street and Holborn Viaduct) https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/afgdegdg8t9 Section 2 - Farringdon Street (between Holborn Viaduct and Charterhouse Street) https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/afgdasrcgrm2908 Section 3 - Farringdon Road and Saffron Hill (between Charterhouse Street and St. Cross Street) https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/rcgrthth5w6 Section 4 - Farringdon Road and Saffron Hill (between St. Cross Street and Ray Street) https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/cg25ty5cy Section 5 - Farringdon Road, Ray Street, Herbal Hill and Warner Street https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/cg5eh4h Section 6 - Warner Street and Phoenix Place https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/cv45h646 Section 7 - Pakenham Street, Calthorpe Street and Cubitt Street https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/c5hv365j753j Section 8 - Ampton Street, Sidmouth Street and Tavistock Place https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/vch34yv3u Section 9 - Tavistock Place and Judd Street https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/qgc245y See also this related scheme for the treatment of the Euston Road junction and continuation northwards: http://camdencyclists.cyclescape.org/issues/2057-midland-road-and-euston-road-judd-street-junction-north-south-cs-link

  • King Cross Gyratory Redesign

    Created by Tom Harrison // 1 thread

    Issue now superseded by this issue discussing TfL's consultation: http://www.cyclescape.org/issues/2040-changes-to-the-king-s-cross-gyratory TfL, Camden Council, and Islington Council are currently developing plans to redesign the Kings Cross Gyratory and address some of the failures of the current gyratory layout. The current environment is very poor, and a real barrier to cycling. Fast, and congested one way traffic with 10-20,000 PCUs per day, and no cycle provision currently. Accessing the station from the east is almost impossible. The area has seen a number of cycle collisions including at least one fatality. To pre-empt the consultation due late 2015, we wanted to discuss what would be the best outcome for people on bikes. More information will be added when we know more, but for now, ideas please.

  • Changes to the King's Cross gyratory

    Created by George Coulouris // 1 thread

    TfL are consulting on a major scheme aimed at improving the roads in the Kings Cross area. The consultation proposes the conversion of several key roads from one-way to two-way working (York Way, Pentonville Road, Gray's Inn Road and Caledonian Road). New cycle facilities proposed include cycle contraflow lanes on Wharfedale Road, King's Cross Road, Penton Rise and Acton Street. New signalised crossings for cycles are suggested at Lorenzo Street and Pentonville Road and Penton Rise and Pentonville Road. There is no discussion of the engineering details. Those are promised for early 2017 following the results of this consultation. An important issue for cycle campaigners will be the feasibility of achieving protected space on the main alignments through the area.

  • TfL consultation on junction Farringdon Road/Calthorpe Street/Margery Street

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 2 threads

    N-S Cycle Superhighway consultation ------------------------------------------------------ TfL proposed that the N-S Cycle Superhighway should stop at Greville Street but LCC's response to the consultation stated that the route should continue on Farringdon Road to at least the junction with Calthorpe and Margery Street (under discussion here). After the consultation TfL replied that they would explore options north of Stonecutter Street(which is actually south of Greville Street!). The N-S Cycle Superhighway may be completed by Spring 2016 but we have no date for it being extended any further north. Link to our discussion on CycleScape http://camdencyclists.cyclescape.org/issues/1407-the-tfl-north-south-cycle-superhighway-consultation ========= Junction Kings Cross Road/Farringdon Road/Calthorpe Street/Margery Street --------- See consultation on TfL's website at: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/kings-cross-road which has a link to their junction plan Plan to build September 2015 ----------- TfL's proposals include the following: On Farringdon Road - Grays Inn Road - right turn pocket for northbound cyclists turning into Margery Street -1.5 m advisory cycle lane on Kings Cross Road for cyclists travelling southbound with one instead of two motor lanes and on northbound carriageway north of the junction - footway build outs Calthorpe Street - longer ASL and low-level early release signals - footway build out Margery Street - widen contraflow - longer ASL box and low-level early release signals Immediate issues: - no space for cycling on Farringdon Road south of the junction - northbound approach on Farringdon Road left hook issue - no attempt to provide protection for cyclists crossing the junction; Farringdon Road is wide enough to put in the infrastructure needed for a separate signal stage for northbound cyclists or for "hold the left turn". - the early release signals are only as effective as a longer ASl box, not protecting cycles that arrive during the green stage. Dates: consultation 20 February 2015; reply due 6 April 2015.

  • The TfL North-South cycle superhighway consultation

    Created by George Coulouris // 4 threads

    Full details of the consultation are at: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/northsouth closing date for comments is 19 October 2014. Camden Cyclists we propose to send a response to this consultation on behalf of our members. This will focus only on the part within Camden (the section between Charterhouse Street and Euston Road - as detailed on the map attached). But note that the alignment of the route north of Greville Street is not agreed between Camden and TfL and is not formally considered a part of the consultation. So it makes sense to have two discussion threads for the sections in Camden south and north of Greville Street.
