Why do the Dutch Reach?

Every year, over 500 people across England, Wales and Scotland are injured because someone opens a car door into their path - and these are just the injuries which are reported to police - many more are never reported. If we want more people cycling more safely, we need everyone to make this simple technique an everyday habit.

Re: Proposed Meeting with Daniel Glaser

Steven Edwards
 

There was an attempt to get that introduced in the UK a short while ago (maybe by Cycling UK if I remember).

I think it lost support as it:

1) Was regarded as a minor part in the scheme of things

2) Had a bit of negative publicity since it attributed the scheme to the Dutch (funnily enough!) yet the Dutch don’t actually make such a big deal of it themselves…(?)

Or did I imagine the bit ?

I’m afraid it will take a death or serious injury to a cyclist to get any changes.

 

It has not been such a problem with traffic being relatively low; but there are a lot more motor vehicles out and about now, and it will only get worse, especially when government policy makes public transportation more difficult (face coverings; limits to capacity; extra delays) so that more people seem to be driving cars.

We are pushing back on the barriers, both to TfL and to Camden but not getting anywhere. We're particularly concerned about the fences on top but have been told they are required to meet regulations which is ridiculous. Trying to get Camden to ask for an exemption. We understand why footways may need widening in places but it should not be at the expense of cyclists' safety.

Space for extra cycle lanes 'on 1,500 miles of London's roads'

39 minutes ago

A sixth of roads in London are wide enough to accommodate protected cycle lanes and could be quickly converted to keep cyclists safe, researchers revealed today.

They found there was space for 2.2m-wide pop-up lanes in either direction on an extra 1,464 miles of road – enabling an eightfold increase in the amount of segregated space as lockdown eases and while Londoners are advised to avoid public transport .

Dr Ashley Dhanani, of The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL, said: “Many Londoners want to cycle to avoid using public transport but are concerned about their safety when cycling on main roads. This new analysis shows there is plenty of space to create cycle lanes on key routes across the city.”

The researchers said it was important to avoid building short sections of cycle lanes in a “piecemeal” manner.

They identified five roads able to provide long, continuous routes for commuters heading into central London: the A5 from Edgware hospital to Marble Arch, the A2 from New Cross to Elephant and Castle, Camberwell Road/A2216 from East Dulwich to Elephant and Castle, the A107 from Hackney Central to the Royal London hospital, and the A503 from Manor House to Regent’s Park.

Dr Dhanani said: “Long, continuous lanes along key routes to key employment centres are essential to support the large numbers of people who are likely to want to cycle to work.”

To accommodate 2.2m cycle lanes on each side – the width recommended by Transport for London - the research found that a road would need to be at least 11m wide – allowing 3m of space in each direction for vehicles and 0.6m for low kerbs or protective barriers to enable segregation.  

Existing cycle tracks are shown in blue, while potential new cycle lanes are shown in green (Bartlett School of Architecture)

 

This would increase protected routes from two per cent to 16 per cent of all streets in London.

Researcher Nicolas Palominos said: "London has a real opportunity to create a comprehensive cycling network. This would both make cycling convenient and attractive and achieve concrete progress in promoting sustainable urban mobility."

TfL is funding more than 500 borough schemes to encourage cycling and walking, though many of these are small scale.

Lucy Saunders, director of the charity Healthy Streets, said: “This data shows the scale of what could be achieved over the coming weeks through simply marking out safe space for cycling on our street.”

Re-allocation of Street Space in Camden

John Chamberlain
 

Camden have recently announced more measures and proposals to re-allocate road space to pedestrians and cyclists and reduce traffic through residential neighbourhoods. These all look really good but from a cycling point of view probably the most significant proposal is for a network of pop-up cycle lanes covering a substantial part of the borough which you can see here overlaid on an interactive street map (use the slider at top right to change the opacity of the overlay). And TfL have announced that there will be a segregated lane on Oakley Square, Lidlington Place and Hampstead Road (we haven't seen the details yet). We've been campaigning for this for years!

We're keeping track of all the proposed, agreed and implemented schemes on our Covid-19 page at http://camdencyclists.org.uk/covid-19/ so keep an eye on this. We'll email when there are significant new developments.

Camden's Commonplace website at https://camdensafetravel.commonplace.is/ is still active so do add items and support the ones you agree with. Numbers count!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS
and if you were forwarded it, sign up here to receive this eBulletin every couple of weeks

The developer (Peabody) is still yet to release their draft master plan. But there's another document we all need to respond to asap -
 
 
Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping Report
 
DEADLINE FOR RESPONSE: This Saturday JUNE 6th 2020
 
The Report details how Peabody will assess all the environmental impacts of their proposed project. Islington council estimated the capacity of the site as 900 homes - but the Scoping Report assesses the impact of up to 1200 homes, which is 33% more. This is not to say Peabody are definitely planning to build 1200 homes, but many locals are concerned.
 
We at CP4H have carried out a review of the Scoping Report, with the support from our Architecture & Planning Working Group (big thanks to them – it's 457 pages long!). We welcome the inclusion of important factors like Ecology and Socioeconomics. However we are very concerned that the Scoping Report seems to suggest the following issues are insignificant, therefore don’t need to be looked at:
 
  • Greenhouse gases and Climate change
  • Noise and Vibration (inside the site)
  • Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing (inside the site)
  • Health and Wellbeing 
 
To ensure we get the best development possible for the community this needs to be challenged and Islington council must make sure all these significant issues are studied.
 
You can submit a comment to the Council by using this link.

Or using number P2020/1244/EIA via the Islington Planning Website.
Climate change implications are clearly not something we can ignore. Vital issues around physical and mental health must also be addressed. Alongside the risk of over-crowding the site beyond its capacity, it also has to be able to respond to pandemics with social distancing. Access to sufficient open green space for all is a key concern. 
 
We will be asking the council to broaden the scope of the environmental assessment to ensure that all aspects of the project are studied in depth.
 
If you have any comments please let us know.
 
If you want to see the full document it can be found here. The important details are in the first 65 pages - so you don't need to read all 457 pages! A longer version of our review is here.

Re: Camden Road

Daniel Glaser
 

It’s a good point. We cycled with the kids into the West End at the weekend. Good wide lane just was just being finished on Portland Place. But for example at the bottom of Regent Street the build-outs for pavements make it quite tight for cycles and buses. This will definitely be a problem when buses are backed up.

Re: Five point closures and a pair of pop-up cycle lanes

I would suggest until the next batch of measures go in, keeping up the suggestions on Commonplace -
being specific re schools & narrow pavements.

If you can recommend area wide measures - it can only reinforce any intentions Camden has for various
forms of low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs).

eg. Look for particular point closures at the 'boundary” of an area that may reduce the need for several local ones.

Sandall Road is a good example.

I also suggest considering the borough as a whole, and where through traffic can be minimised, diverted onto boundary
routes designed to carry larger traffic volumes.

It’s also good to let councillors know how great it is to cycle without the weight of excessive caution (or would/could be),
and how much more appealing to ride, the existing infra makes it.

Then when you’ve done that…


to help Islington’s cycling network take shape - and firm up those routes crossing from Camden.

Be bold!

And ask others to do the same for both boroughs

In your photo of Sandall Road the plastic barrier on the railway side is enclosing a manhole cover broken by a vehicle evading the closure by driving on the pavement.  I have also witnessed a car evading the closure on the school side by driving on the cycle bypass.  A tight fit but passable.  I have informed Camden of both.  I suspect it’s also happening at Wilmot Place.  Incredible.

By the middle of the last week, Camden completed  Phase 1 of their Covid-19 response by building point closures in Sandall Road, Constantine Road, Wilmot Place, Clarence Way and Hartland Road as well as pop-up lanes in Goodsway.

I passed through Sandall Rd this afternoon and additional plastic barriers had been attached - not overly secure
- some moved by pedestrians perhaps - but enough to deter footway mounting motorists until something a bit more permanent goes in?
