Re: St Mark's Sq

I am not conversant with the scheme.  But how about suggesting special services for cyclists with an optional "Blessing of the Bikes"

only partially tongue in cheek

Subject: [CCC] St Mark's Sq
 
 

Dear Angela, Jean and George,

How are you? I am back in the room, as it were, after a lovely holiday (walking and swimming, very little cycling) and a family bereavement.

The vicar at St Mark’s is clearly wrong on points a and c below, but I wonder about the necessity of the floating parking (points c,d ,e); might he have a point here?
As neighbour and with St Mark’s Sq is part of my originally submitted route (Princess Road to Morley College was the whole route), I would like to engage in dialogue and reduce his conviction about the scheme. He has clearly mobilised a lot of ‘anti’ responses. A bit late, but I may have some traction…

Can you help me with the planning facts/decision process? Is it feasible to have (E-W cross-section of the road): 
Parking – lane 1(L turn) – lane2 (R turn) – cycle contraflow.
Btw, I have just done a ride armed with PASTA’s pollution monitor MyCleanSpace. It took a while to load it up, and it seems heavy on the phone battery, but hope a modus vivandi settles in.
Masses to do now, including C25 and a hearing at the Lords contra HS2…
All best wishes
Martin


Dear William,


a.   Three lanes of traffic moving to two is going to bring about further traffic constriction at busy times of the day, with added pollution for all locally.
Traffic lanes are being removed all over London to improve cycle and walking provision, and to reduce the city’s dependence on motor transport. The imperatives are stark and I believe incontestable – climate change, health and air pollution. I should add that St Mark’s Square and Regent’s Park Road are part of a ‘rat run’, particularly westbound; the signed route to St John’s Wood from Delancey Street is via Parkway and Prince Albert Road (A5205). I am confident St Mark’s Square will become less, not more, polluted over time, as traffic flows reduce and traffic management improves  and we are walking and cycling more!

b.      The scheme is not compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act; not enough care for the needs of the infirm and disabled has been given and thus must be open to formal challenge. 

c.       The needs of the young, attending the Zoo, nearby, or our nursery in the week, have also been overlooked.
I would argue to the contrary; it is specifically the young who need these sorts of changes to be implemented. We have a duty of care and stewardship to the young, to pass on a habitable city (and planet). The status quo is not sustainable, in terms of CO2 emissions or air quality. Further, Camden’s plan improves pedestrian flows from Camden lock and the Zoo with the extra crossing provision, so walking to Zoo and nursery will become easier and cleaner.

d.     Having the only parking in St Mark’s Square being the “floating” type, demonstrates a signal lack of concern for the most vulnerable in our community. 
e.      Access to the church is considerably diminished by these proposals.
 


BikeTube September 14th

John Chamberlain
 

LCC are urgently looking for help with the BikeTube events on September
14th; see details below. Unfortunately all our usual leaders and
marshals are away or otherwise unavailable, but if you can possibly
help, please get in touch via the link in the email. Even if you can't
help marshal, it might be fun to join in.

And if you could help publicise the event that'd be good too! It's a bit
like the BikeFridays we did some years ago.

Regards
John Chamberlain

Hi all,

I hope you are well. As you may already be aware, were running a
series of BikeTubes (led rides) as part of Cycle to Work Day on
Wednesday, 14^th September to help support people who are interested in
commuting to work but who are nervous to make the first step. Southwark
Cyclists have been using this model successfully for many months and
wed love to use these organised rides as an opportunity to expand the
model in future and put on more rides like this, either supporting local
groups to do this or coordinating rides centrally.

This is the first year weve done this, and its been a quick turnaround
to get things organised in time. Wed love to ask for your help with the
rides, to help make them as successful as possible. Are you or your
group able to help us? Were looking for the following:

*Marshals*

We are looking to have between 50 75 people on each ride which is a
massive under taking for ride leaders and back markers. Were looking
to have between 5 7 marshals to support our ride leaders on the day.
Could you ask your group members if they would be interested in
volunteering on the day? Ive emailed marshals who supported on the
FreeCycle and have had a good response but I feel we still need more for
certain rides. We will be offering ride leaders and marshals a 5.00
Sainsburys voucher as a small token of our appreciation.

If you could forward this message onto your members and ask any
interested parties to sign up at the following link:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfRc9tcoC7WE3ggO7msp06YOhZEzQkpkulE07Rj55s_8wLKyw/viewform?usp=send_form

*Flyers*

Our numbers for the London BikeTubes arent as high as wed like so
were looking to do a social media push as well as sending out to all
contacts across London to generate interest. Im aware that you are all
very busy as well as your volunteers and members but I was hoping that
you could help. We are looking to start flyer at key tube stations to
drum up interest in the run up to the event. We would like to hand out
500 flyers at each station over a couple of days in the mornings of the
Wednesday, 7^th and Thursday, 8^th September. If you can help out with
this that would be great.

In addition to this, could I ask that you to place the attached poster
up in your workplace, pub, local library, anywhere that you think might
attract cyclists. Feel free to forward it to anyone who might be
interested and please do share it on your twitter and social media
pages. We will be printing a small number of these for staff to
distribute, however if you are interested in having one, please let me know.

Finally, I know that this has been a rushed event. I would like to let
you know that LCC values the work that you do as volunteers and that
its paramount to us to be able to support you as you support us. Your
valued contributions are important to us and I apologise if the event
planning has been rushed. As this is the pilot year, hopefully well
iron out any teething problems and well be able to work better in the
future years.

For more information on BikeTubes, please go to www.lcc.org.uk/biketubes
<http://www.lcc.org.uk/biketubes>.

If you have any questions, Im more than willing to help.

Many thanks

CS6 - moving to detailed design stage ...

Jean Dollimore
 

Dear Stakeholder
 
We have published our response to the consultation on the detailed proposals for the North-South Cycle Superhighway (CS6) between Stonecutter Street and King’s Cross. We closely considered all of the responses received in the consultation and have incorporated several changes to the original proposals in response. These changes include signalising the junction of Farringdon Street with West Smithfield and Snow Hill, which will be subject to further consultation. A detailed design will now be developed and, subject to approval from Camden Council and Islington Council, construction will begin in spring 2017.
 
Please visit https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/northsouth to see details of the changes and our Response to Issues Raised report.
 
Yours faithfully

Deadline today: Investigation into traffic congestion in London (GLA

Steven Edwards <stevenaedwards@...>
 





Investigation into traffic congestion in London 
Transport Committee 

Without intervention, the problem of congestion looks set to get worse over the coming years.  The London Assembly Transport Committee is asking the question: what can the Mayor and TfL do to reduce the level of traffic congestion in London?

We want to hear your thoughts.  
Read the Call for Evidence document and send your submission to transportcommittee@...


Please respond to the consultation here by 2 September latest. And tell the committee what you think London needs to do to improve the situation. Here’s what we think the key points to make are – but please work out your own, or use your own words:
It’s not cycle tracks or cycling infrastructure that causes congestion – these are the solution. We need lots more, and better junctions, to enable more people to get out of cars and start cycling.
What does cause (or restrain) congestion: motoring costs (including parking); journey times; enabling alternatives; facilitation or restriction of motor vehicle journeys. In other words – the more you build for demand, the more demand there is – so more tunnels, bridges and roads will only end up with more journeys made by car and the same vehicle speeds in the end.
Solutions – make parking more costly; roads pricing/congestion charging (with monies raised going to sustainable transport schemes); build for cycling, walking, public transport, not for more private motor car journeys; deal with the school run, private hire vehicles and freight/deliveries.
Again, respond here: https://www.london.gov.uk/about-us/london-assembly/london-assemblys-current-investigations/londons-congested-roads by 2 September

James Walsh
Wednesday 31 August 2016 12.14 BST

BBC presenter uploaded footage on Facebook showing an incident with a driver - has something similar happened to you?



Jeremy Vine’s video of an alleged road rage incident in a west London street is upsetting, but not surprising to regular cycle commuters.
Bike users in London and elsewhere shared many similar stories on social media, including those of drivers getting out of their cars to physically threaten cyclists over perceived indiscretions.

Most notable thing about @theJeremyVine road rage video is just about every London cyclist will have faced similar

"Cyclists not using bike lanes" ? TfLsays Daily Mail story is inaccurate and "one-sided". Cyclists Twitter response below...

Steven Edwards <stevenaedwards@...>
 


Laura Laker August 29 2016

 


Transport for London says the Daily Mail's story, showing cyclists bypassing a set of cycle traffic lights, was inaccurate and "one-sided", while cyclists on Twitter react brilliantly...

An article posted by the Daily Mail showing cyclists passing a short stretch of bike lane at a set of lights was inaccurate and "one-sided", according to Transport for London as the route is not actually a cycle superhighway, and is not yet finished.
The article, which showed people bypassing the 5m filter lane onto Parliament Square, suggested the images were evidence Boris Johnson's £50m cycle superhighway programme was a waste of money. 
Meanwhile, annoyed this snippet ignores the fact at peak times some 1,200 people per hour are using the actual Cycle Superhighway routes, including families with young children, cyclists on Twitter reacted with brilliant irony, by posting pictures of other infrastructure that is sometimes not used, including roads, and tube trains after hours.

If you cycle by the model boating pond on the Heath, be aware!

Angela Hobsbaum
 

Messsage from Ponds Project Communication officer:

Model Boating Pond causeway

The old causeway path will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists from Thursday, 1 September until Wednesday, 7 September (including the weekend) while the path is resurfaced. The path on top of the dam is open as an alternative, and cyclists are asked to dismount and walk their bikes.

 

Also, from Monday, 12 September for 2 weeks, the path which runs from Model Boating Pond down to the tennis courts is to be re-laid in 100m sections. BAM Nuttall will start from the Model Boating Pond end and will lay pedestrian suitable track way next to the section they are working on, and work their way down the path. The path will have a black-top finish. Although the majority of this path is not a designated cycle path, the work right at the top end may affect cyclists – the section when they leave the Model Boating Pond causeway.


Consultation on St Mark’s Square Proposed Pedestrian and Cycling Improvements

Jean Dollimore
 

We need some more responses in favour of the contraflow cycle lane in St Marks Square because Tom Foot has reported in CNJ on the opposition from Primrose Hill CAAC. (See page 12 if you have a copy, otherwise, here’s a photo of the article)


You can fill in the online reply form at: 


You will have to give a postode where you live and if it’s not in the Primrose Hill area, say that you ride through the area.

Help to clean up London's air

Angela Hobsbaum
 

Thousands of pollution monitoring tags will be given away to schools and community groups in what aims to be London’s biggest experiment measuring air quality right down to street level.

Data from CleanSpace Tags will help create a map charting parts of the capital with the dirtiest and cleanest air.

If you would like to help, register here: https://our.clean.space/maplondon/ and you will receive a small portable device (no bigger than an i-phone) to carry with you when you cycle round the city. It will record the air quality on your journeys.

The Online Survey asks:
Please indicate, by ticking one box or more, which one of the following best describes you.
 Resident 
 Business 
 School (eg. Parent, Guardian, Teacher) 
 We queried this with Camden and they confirmed that responses from people who cycle through the area will be considered if they identify themselves as ‘Resident’. It might be worth adding a note below your address saying you cycle in the area.  The consultation period has been extended to 16 September, so please get responding!

Camden proposes to take out one of the three motor traffic lanes and replace it with a northbound contraflow cycle lane.

They also propose a right turn pocket on Prince Albert Road to facilitate right turns into the contraflow cycle lane.

For pedestrians, Camden proposes an extra green-man crossing so that there will be one on each of the three arms.

You will keep well away from the Zoo Car park if you come out of Regent’s Park over St Mark’s Bridge and then ride up a contraflow cycle lane to Princess Road and Gloucester Road

And it’s OK to reply if your postcode is outside the area - you represent people cycling through who need this route to be completed.

If anyone's not yet responded to the consultation, I would suggest recommending to Camden that they obtain use for this (though ZSL owned?) at least as a cycling through route to Regent's Park. Currently the gates are locked permanently so even walkers can't access from Prince Albert Road.

In the meantime if the area it is being considered as an HGV holding bay, then this is leverage for something closer to the original plan for a Regent's Park through-traffic-free scheme to go ahead. The Parkway gate should be closed along with the others (one, or possibly two remaining open for access only).  

What do others think?

Ability Bikes seeks volunteer!

Angela Hobsbaum
 

*What is Ability Bikes?*

Ability bikes are specially adapted bicycles for use by people with
disabilities. We have nine bikes which are kept in Regent’s Park where
they are used by various groups. You can see some photos of them on our
website:
http://www.westeustonpartnership.co.uk/projects/west-euston-ability-bikes/.
Some of them are tricycles, some need two riders and one takes a
wheelchair. A sessional worker runs a free session on Saturday mornings and
other groups use the bikes during the week. Cycling takes place within the
park on the Inner Circle and the Broad Walk. Often people cycle with family
members which makes it a fun family activity.

*What will you be doing?*



We are looking for someone to promote our wonderful bikes and make sure as
many people as possible know about them and use them. This will involve
you contacting disability groups in the area, talking to them about using
the bikes and setting up regular sessions for them. This would suit a
cycling enthusiast, though you do not need know anything about maintaining
bikes to be our co-ordinator. You will also help with planning a big splash
to introduce a new wheelchair-bearing bike in October.

You may also be writing press releases to get the word out, tweeting, being
on our Facebook and much more. Additionally, you will be booking out the
bikes for our Saturday sessions and ensuring everyone in the office can
too.

The time you offer can be flexible and up to a maximum of 1 day a week, but
not necessarily all on the same day each week. Some of the work could be
done from home but some availability during the working week would be
preferable. Space is available in our office.


*Skills and qualities you will need*

· Enjoy cycling

· Inclusive attitude

· Interest in disabilities would be an advantage

· Able to write in English

· Confident on the phone

· Social media savvy


*What we offer you*

You will be part of a welcoming team at West Euston Partnership. You will
have an induction and regular contact and help from the WellFair
Co-ordinator, with support meetings as and when required. You will have
access to free careers guidance from our experienced Employment Outreach
Officer. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

Contact Diana Young, WellFair Co-ordinator, diana@westeuston.org, 020 7388
7932.

Your note is worrying for local cyclists and park users. How can this be stopped?
 
This parking area has always been of questionable merit. Of course it is used by coaches at the zoo, but the size is inappropriate.
