Separately - I asked TfL whether cyclists could continue to use Hampstead Road during the planned closure of the southbound lane over the weekend of the 22nd/23rd and also what the plans were for the 13 month period starting next month when HS2 are taking half the road - see answers below (spoiler alert - "Yes" and "Working on it").

Have a good weekend - hope to see some of you on Monday.

Hi John,

 

Please find responses to your two questions below.

 

Southbound cyclists can continue to use the facility on Hampstead Road and following your question the Project Manager is arranging for signage indicating this to be placed on the street.

 

Conversations are still ongoing with HS2, but we are hoping to retain as much as much cycle provision as possible. I will of course keep you updated as soon as I have any further information.

 

With best wishes,

Thanks, Emily. I have two questions:

  1. Will southbound cyclists be able to use Hampstead Road during the works or will they also need to use the diversion route?
  2. I understand that HS2 will be closing the northbound lanes of Hampstead Road between Varndell Street and Granby Terrace for 13 months from late September, with all traffic using the current southbound lane. I assume that this will mean that all the cycle facilities will have to be removed, or are there any plans to maintain protected lanes?

Good afternoon,

 

I hope this email finds you well.

 

As part of the Mayor’s ‘Streetspace for London’ programme, we have been working to quickly transform London’s streets to accommodate increases in cycling and walking, as lockdown restrictions are eased.

 

At the beginning of June, we introduced temporary pop-up cycle facilities to aid safe active travel and social distancing in Camden on Hampstead Road, Oakley Square, Lidlington Place and Harrington Square. These urgent and necessary measures have provided quick-to-install cycle facilities to help protect those choosing to cycle on one of London’s known strategic cycling corridors. This has provided a route for cyclists in this area and enabled public transport to be used by those who need it most.

 

To complete the scheme, we will be installing a bus stop bypass near Netley Street, and applying blue surface colouring on the road. Both of these measures will improve cycle safety.

 

To put these measures in place, there will be a southbound closure of Hampstead Road from Harrington Square to Euston Road, from 08:00 on 22 August until 18:00 on 23 August. During this time southbound buses will be diverted. There will also be closures of Drummond Street, Robert Street and Varndell Street at their junctions with Hampstead Road (on the western side only) to facilitate the blue surface colouring.

 

Working hours will be 08:00 – 18:00, to reduce disruption for local residents by avoiding night works.

 

I’ve noted the diversion routes below:

 

Diversion for Hampstead Road southbound closure:

Camden High Street – Plender Street – Camden Street – Crowndale Road – Pancras Road – Midland Road – Euston Road

 

Local traffic diversion for side road closures:

Stanhope Street – Park Village East – Mornington Street

 

I hope this information is helpful. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. I’ve also included a link to the website for our Streetspace initiative, where key temporary changes to support walking and cycling and make active travel more viable are explained in more detail: https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/improvements-and-projects/streetspace-for-london

Petition – Fund the construction of segregated cycle paths alongside all A roads

Steven Edwards
 

The Government should provide funding for segregated cycle paths alongside all A roads. This should allow for safe cycling alongside the road with a barrier or verge between cars, lorrys etc and cyclists, making cycling safer and a useable means to commute and keep healthy.

More details

This should enable safe commuting and exercise for all, and is in line with action by other countries such as the Netherlands. Electric bikes could be able to use this facility up to 30mph, so these paths are useful to those making longer journeys, and enabling people to arrive at work swiftly, safely and not too sweaty. People could use enclosed bikes too for poor weather.

There still seems to be a construction vehicle entrance on Polygon Road so a little care will be needed at the corner where you turn onto the traffic-free area.

Re: Cycle Orbital - a request

Jon Cyclome <swiftjonc@...>
 

Nice idea Martin,

1) I led a large group of cyclists on a 5-day clockwise continuous M25 tour in 2014 staying in Travelodges. We started in Hatfield and stopped the nights at Chelmsford, Maidstone, Dorking and Camberley https://shertscyclists.blogspot.com/2014/06/club-tour-2014-around-london.html
Lots of photos on the link - feel free to use any (photo credit: South Herts CTC). Apologies for the lack of captions as they were taken by various people. Hopefully you can recognise where some of them are or work it out from the routes.
Route maps also linked on the blog can be viewed full screen.

2) Tim Boden has done a similar project to yours 'The Oyster Wheel' in 8 stages: https://oysterwheel.wordpress.com/

Jon


Re: Cycle Orbital - a request

Steven Edwards
 

Hi Martin,

yes it all looks really fantastic (more incentive to apply for my travel pass..!)

Just some minor points I might suggest re format.

On the home page:


1) Perhaps change colour red of text heading for “Welcome” (hard to read against background).

2) The text for:

 “Cycle Orbital... a network of cycleways ringing the capital, accessed from Oysterzone stations.

For all cyclists, from novice to athlete, the routes comprise twelve Arcs, Spokes and Spinoffs, connecting Londoners to Southeast England - and beyond.

Devise and download your rail-assisted outing on quiet byways and off-road cycle paths - and discover the riches on your doorstep at the urban periphery."


is legible but could do with being a couple of notches larger perhaps?


3) The pictures are excellent and inviting - but if possible replace the ‘maps’ in the ‘maps & locks’ one?

On first viewing, not apparent as maps?.


These are only minor points - still look forward to trying out some of these rides.


(Well done for getting Alan Bennett’s testimonial!)


Thanks,

Steven

Residents to get new decision-making powers in cycling 'revolution' | The Guardian

Residents to get new decision-making powers in cycling revolution'




Measures include watchdog to ensure quality and safety of walking and cycling routes

Residents will get powers to banish through-traffic from local streets and councils will be prevented from building substandard cycle lanes under what Downing Street has billed as a revolution for cycling and walking in England.

The plans will see the creation of a watchdog to ensure new cycle and walking routes are up to standard, intended to act as a transport equivalent of the schools inspectorate, Ofsted.



Active Travel England, to be led by a yet-to-be-appointed commissioner for walking and cycling, will refuse to fund paint-only bike lanes – without physical barriers or protection from cars – or routes where cyclists and pedestrians have to share space. It could also cut budgets in other areas for highways departments which fail to deliver on active transport.



The plans, led by Boris Johnson, will be funded by a previously announced £2bn in new funding over five years, with a pledge of longer-term money. They include cycle training for every child or adult who seeks it, a pilot scheme for GPs to prescribe cycling to improve patients’ health, and thousands of miles of protected bike lanes.

Local people will be given a chance to choose whether residential side streets should be closed to through motor traffic to make them safer for pedestrians and cyclists, under plans to be put out for consultation.



Another proposal could see some main roads, for example in cities, kept as through-routes for pedestrians, cyclists and buses, with other motor traffic allowed access only.



Also on the table are grants to help people with the cost of electric-assist bikes, which can encourage cycling, particularly on longer or more hilly commutes. However, these tend to be more expensive than traditional bikes, often costing well over £1,000. It has not yet been specified how much assistance might be offered.




Here's Daniel Glaser’s brilliant Ham and High piece

“Let’s celebrate the city’s cleaner air and shape the streets in which we live”, 
“ unique opportunity to test by building … we need to pay attention now to what we like and tell people about it.”

Hi Susan, the way it works is, you decide how much you want to do and where you want to deliver, and then sign up on a google sheet. It works on a weekly basis, the one for next week has just gone up I think. There are runs to Clapton, Shoreditch, Kings Cross and Holborn, Highbury and Holloway, Hampstead Road and Camden Town, Kentish Town, and West Hampstead. You can pick up the meals from the Camden People's Theatre from 11.30 - I find I'm generally back home by 2pm.

The runs aren't formal, you can pick and choose addresses, but those are the ones I tend to do.

Some people I see pretty well every time, and others prefer to pick up the meal after I've left. Today I saw a young man who I've never seen out of his dressing gown, now dressed to go out and smiling. That was good.

 

Anything else you want to know, we can discuss tomorrow?

Call me or email to find out more. It's a great way to exercise body and mind (where was that flat that I can never find??) and to feel part of a collective endeavour.

Re: Cycling volunteers needed

Hi Susan, the way it works is, you decide how much you want to do and where you want to deliver, and then sign up on a google sheet. It works on a weekly basis, the one for next week has just gone up I think. There are runs to Clapton, Shoreditch, Kings Cross and Holborn, Highbury and Holloway, Hampstead Road and Camden Town, Kentish Town, and West Hampstead. You can pick up the meals from the Camden People's Theatre from 11.30 - I find I'm generally back home by 2pm.

Just a warning that Crogsland Road will be closed all day tomorrow 23rd for a crane to be removed from the building site. It will be best to avoid the road but if you do decide to walk through please be respectful and dismount through the closed section.
