  • Barnet Draft Long Term Transport Strategy 2020-2041 Consultation

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    "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)."

  • 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.

  • Baring Street Road Safety Improvements

    Created by David Lincoln // 1 thread

    Islington Council is proposing to make road safety improvements to reduce traffic speeds on Baring Street to tackle speeding issue for the safety of the community.

    We are seeking your views on the council’s proposals to implement the following:

    • Installing speed cushions along the road. These are ‘bus friendly’ and should reduce general traffic speeds, but not hinder the journey for buses.
    • Installing a raised Zebra pedestrian crossing with associated yellow flashing beacons and tactile paving located between the eastbound and westbound bus stops. This is to help people cross the road to access either of the bus stops. The removal of some parking spaces to make space for the crossing would be necessary However it was noted that parking bays are not fully occupied during the traffic survey.
    • Building out sections of footway with planters to guide traffic around parked cars.
    • Providing electric vehicle charging bays to the western end of Baring Street in line with the Council’s sustainable transport goals.
