  • 'Quick Wins' - minor cycling infrastructure improvements in Camden

    Created by George Coulouris // 2 threads

    Camden officers have indicated that they would like to receive prioritised list of suggestions for (very) minor improvements throughout the borough that will make cyclists feel better catered for. Examples of changes that will be considered:
    - dropped kerbs
    - obstructive barriers (i.e. anti-motor cycle barriers)
    - stretches of poor road surface (such that you have slow down on a Brompton or weave around holes)
    - Feeders into ASLs that are too short or non-mandatory

    Changes that shouldn't be suggested for this initiative include:
    - anything that would require a local consultation
    - anything that involves changes to parking provision
    - individual pot-holes

    To compile a list, we want suggestions from members. The Council's deadline is Monday November 25th. So can we have members' suggestions by Wednesday November 20th please. That will allow time for us to compile a list and circulate it here for comment.

  • Toucan crossing between Featherstone Street and Leonard Street slow to change

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 0 threads

    The toucan crossing for cyclists avoiding Old Street Junction are very slow to change for pedestrians and cyclists. Often people get fed up waiting and then dart across in a gap. Or once there is a gap, it takes until cars start appearing before they change.

    If TfL is seriously interested in encouraging walking and cycling they need to change the timing of these lights so that they don't take forever to change.

  • Pinch point where Clerkenwell Road crosses Farringdon Road

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    As a cyclist it's pretty horrible to cycle along Clerkenwell Road due to it being much narrower than it used to be, or could be due to the ultra wide pavements.

    West bound there is a bit of 2 lane queuing preventing cyclists getting past. Eastbound just before the lights the Island is in the way forcing cyclists to merge with motors.

  • Severn Sisters to Hornsey Rd. right turn problem

    Created by Harry Wood // 1 thread

    I cycle southwards down Sussex Way each morning, and the logical thing to do is continue down Hornsey Road. Even better would be if this could somehow join onto the nicely cycle provisioned route down Arnette Road. Would make a logical route southwards, but short of bulldozing some shops, I'm not sure how it could be made to join up better.

    So anyway I go down Hornsey Road, but the weird thing is I'm not allowed to turn right from Severn Sisters Rd to Horsey Road. It's weird because there's a little strip of cycle lane on Severn Sisters Road leading into this junction, which would very much imply that the highway planners are expecting cyclists to do this. Maybe there should be a blue 'except cyclists' sign there.... except that cyclists need to avoid running over the pedestrians who are crossing at that time in the traffic light sequence.

    I'm actually not sure what can be done to improve this. Maybe someone else can think of something.
