Dear all

It’s now over a year since Camden put in several trial schemes so they are beginning to send out consultations on making the schemes permanent.

They have started with three schemes that used bollards to stop rat running through residential roads. Although most people living in those roads appreciate the schemes, they may not realise that they need to reply to the consultation. But the minority of people who think that driving is more important than safer streets are likely to express their objections.

Here is a list of the three consultations (deadline 15th July)

Sandall Road Safe and Healthy Streets scheme
Bollards were placed across Sandall Road by the width restriction to prevent motor traffic from cutting through residential streets between Camden Road and Kentish Town Road or Leighton Road.
Camden is consulting on whether the trial scheme should be made permanent
Reply to the questionnaire at the bottom of the page.


Savernake and Cressy Road Safe & Healthy Streets
Bollards were placed across Savernake Road by the entry to Savernake Bridge.
Camden is consulting on whether the trial scheme should be made permanent with some enhancements – three planting areas to include three new trees
They also propose two-way cycling on Cressy Road between Agincourt Road and Constantine Road
Reply to the questionnaire at the bottom of the page.


Clarence Way and Hartland Road Safe & Healthy Streets
Bollards were placed at  three locations around Holy Trinity & St. Silas School
Camden is consulting on whether the trial scheme should be made permanent with some enhancements – footway build outs and greenery on Hartland Road, near the junction of Hawley Road
Reply to the questionnaire at the bottom of the page.

And if you live in any of those areas, please remind your neighbours to respond.

Excellent summary by Linus Rees of Westminster's plan to close Oxford Circus to E-W traffic including cycles.

https://fitzrovianews.com/2021/06/21/westminster-council-plans-part-pedestrianisation-of-oxford-street

This looks horrendous with no plans to create protected cycling infrastructure, complicated and long routings on unsuitable streets and several turns across oncoming traffic. One junction is replaced by 8 and we know that junctions cause the most danger for cyclists and pedestrians.

Re: Monthly meeting on Monday 21st

Suggest people read the CNJ two page article on this scheme. No monitoring of effects and impact on the disabled. Had the Council discussed a scheme with local people instead of imposing it unilaterally it could have worked. Read also GO Community page FB. As a cyclist of 45 years pedalling living in the area we do need to deal with commuting traffic. The Council got now £1.9m from GLA  - £1.1 back in Feb 2018. No work on broken pavements, potholes and blocked drains. We asked for a lights controlled crossing where a 15 year old was killed – no response. Those cycling along QC may notice at each end (Malden Road and Grafton Road) rising bollards in the road – a minor cycling hazard – These were put in over 20 years’ ago at a cost of ? £250k and have never been used. Cars regularly are forced to do 3 point turns outside Carlton school increasing pollution and dangers to pupils. Council officers advised local vehicle owners  to use Vicars Road despite it being narrow and having a care home and nursery school on it,  If councillors attend the meeting ask if they support the six month experiment. Only c 120 people living in the area support it.

As far as I know, LCC don't take minutes or record the Local Group Forum meetings.

Regarding painted lanes etc, almost all recent cycle infrastructure on busy roads consists of segregated lanes, installed either by TfL (on their roads) or local councils.  And LTNs create quiet neighbourhoods where specific infrastructure is not needed. Camden has been very active and there is a good summary of what they have been doing on our website here with specific reference to segregated routes here

Other boroughs, notoriously Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, have failed to provide for cycling or have used painted lanes. K&C have even removed the segregated lane they put in with TfL funding. TfL will not fund sub-standard facilities and are looking to claw back the money that councils took if they then remove the facility. So pressure really needs to be on the boroughs, rather than TfL.

There's a really good graphic showing the growth of segregated lanes in London but I can't put my finger on it - anyone?

Dear John,

I hope you are doing well.

In this week’s Friday Post we have:

  • Local Group Forum on Thursday
  • 100m for cycling and walking in DfT-TfL deal
  • Micromobility parking
  • Introducing Katy – network coordinator
  • London cycle infrastructure through time
  • Guidance
  • LCC website map

Local Group Forum with Will Norman

A reminder the Local Group Forum is this Thursday and Will Norman will be joining us.

The discussion with Will Norman will take up most of the meeting and we will begin with that. He will be talking about what local groups can do to support walking and cycling in their area and listening to you about the issues that you face so do come prepared with questions and items you want to raise with him.

After the conversation with Will, the other items on the agenda are:

  • Introduction to Suami (for those who haven’t met him) and Climate Champions
  • Introduction to Katy, our network coordinator
  • Micromobility parking report alert

**Please do share details of the Local Group Forum with other group members who are not on the Friday Post.**

A reminder that the meeting will not be recorded.

100m for cycling and walking in DfT-TfL deal

The Department for Transport and Transport for London have agreed a funding deal for London’s transport systems until December 2021. In case you missed the blog post looking at the deal and particularly what it means for cycling and active travel, read it here.

According to the deal, TfL must commit at least £100 million on walking and cycling before December of this year. Do ensure that your borough is prepared to capitalise on money that comes to them.

Micromobility parking report from LCC policy forum

More cycles, cargo bikes and e-scooters on our streets are causing a shortage of parking spaces for these “micromoblities.” Parking must double rapidly based on rising cycling levels, the roll-out of e-scooter hire trials and other factors, says new research from the London Cycling Campaign’s Policy Forum, the Micromobility Parking: Literature Review.

In the week e-scooter trials started in London, the LCC’s Policy Forum report on micromobility parking good practice provides recommendations for local authorities and operators.

You may wish to alert your officers to the report. It can be found here

 

Introducing Katy

Katy Rodda is joining LCC in the newly created post of network coordinator. She’ll be working closely with local groups and will be at the Local Group Forum.

See here for a little Q&A with Suami and Katy, the newest joiners to the campaigns team.

For now a few words from Katy introducing herself:

I feel as if I've been moving into this space over a few years. It started not long after I became a cycle trainer, when I'd hear parents say “Well, thanks for that, but s/he's not cycling on the road because it's too dangerous.” And holidays in Denmark and personal field trips to the Netherlands were like having the clouds lifted from my eyes. I returned from those idyllic places to weep daily for young people here, because the quality of life is so compromised by the inappropriate outdoor environment. 

I've also been working for Wheels for Wellbeing, so I've seen how having the opportunity for freedom isn't just a matter for non-Disabled people. Right now we're at a critical point trying to make our streets more inclusive than they've ever been, restoring the social function of decades past combined with mobility options for more people. 

So much to work for, and I'm looking forward to working alongside the many outstanding LCC local reps to achieve our visions for London.

London cycle infrastructure through time

You may have already seen these time-lapse videos from @SafeCycleLDN looking at how cycle infrastructure has grown in the capital over the past decade of increased attention to cycling. A number of boroughs have been done, and the plan is to cover all of London. These first eight videos really show what a decade of pro-cycling policy can create. They sadly also show what happens when boroughs don’t do enough.

You can see them here

Guidance

As soon as it becomes clear whether restrictions will be lifted on June 21 and how, we will issue updated guidance. In the meantime, please refer to existing guidance for rides and Dr Bikes, and if you meet face-to-face for any other LCC-related task please ensure you adhere to all government guidance.

LCC website map

The events map on the website is still being looked at and it should be fixed by Monday.

Hope you enjoy the weekend

Re: Friday post: LGF this Thursday with Will Norman, and much more

Steven Edwards
 

The main suggestions from the meeting were to keep responding the mass of consultations on 
ETO measures (many soon to reach the end of their temporary trial period).

There has indeed been an amazing amount of infra that’s gone in in the last year and a bit; the equivalent to perhaps several year’s worth under ’normal’ circumstances.
A problem for TfL has been ‘burn-out’ - with insufficient officers available to keep up with the pace of
change (facing off the noise of the opposition who remain persistent despite the positive ruling on the Bishopsgate measures).

The successful overturning of this JR (challenge by the pro-motoring lobby to the City measures), though positive
(and will likely be cited in further instances where motoring groups challenge active/healthy travel schemes), tereare still other JRs still to go to the courts.

The other main take-away from the meeting was to ensure your councillors receive positive feedback for the schemes that have gone in.

I referred to one of my preferred routes (from a wide choice across Camden), of Waterloo to Camden via Gower Street,
made possible by the simple contra-flow on Endell Street (in Covent Garden).

In the week e-scooter trials started in London, the LCC’s Policy Forum report on micromobility parking good practice provides recommendations for local authorities and operators.

You may wish to alert your officers to the report. It can be found here

 

Introducing Katy

Katy Rodda is joining LCC in the newly created post of network coordinator. She’ll be working closely with local groups and will be at the Local Group Forum.

See here for a little Q&A with Suami and Katy, the newest joiners to the campaigns team.

For now a few words from Katy introducing herself:

I feel as if I've been moving into this space over a few years. It started not long after I became a cycle trainer, when I'd hear parents say “Well, thanks for that, but s/he's not cycling on the road because it's too dangerous.” And holidays in Denmark and personal field trips to the Netherlands were like having the clouds lifted from my eyes. I returned from those idyllic places to weep daily for young people here, because the quality of life is so compromised by the inappropriate outdoor environment. 

I've also been working for Wheels for Wellbeing, so I've seen how having the opportunity for freedom isn't just a matter for non-Disabled people. Right now we're at a critical point trying to make our streets more inclusive than they've ever been, restoring the social function of decades past combined with mobility options for more people. 

So much to work for, and I'm looking forward to working alongside the many outstanding LCC local reps to achieve our visions for London.

London cycle infrastructure through time

You may have already seen these time-lapse videos from @SafeCycleLDN looking at how cycle infrastructure has grown in the capital over the past decade of increased attention to cycling. A number of boroughs have been done, and the plan is to cover all of London. These first eight videos really show what a decade of pro-cycling policy can create. They sadly also show what happens when boroughs don’t do enough.

You can see them here

Guidance

As soon as it becomes clear whether restrictions will be lifted on June 21 and how, we will issue updated guidance. In the meantime, please refer to existing guidance for rides and Dr Bikes, and if you meet face-to-face for any other LCC-related task please ensure you adhere to all government guidance.

The events map on the website is still being looked at and it should be fixed by Monday.

Re: Friday post: LGF this Thursday with Will Norman, and much more

As far as I know, LCC don't take minutes or record the Local Group Forum meetings.

Regarding painted lanes etc, almost all recent cycle infrastructure on busy roads consists of segregated lanes, installed either by TfL (on their roads) or local councils.  And LTNs create quiet neighbourhoods where specific infrastructure is not needed. Camden has been very active and there is a good summary of what they have been doing on our website here with specific reference to segregated routes here

Other boroughs, notoriously Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, have failed to provide for cycling or have used painted lanes. K&C have even removed the segregated lane they put in with TfL funding. TfL will not fund sub-standard facilities and are looking to claw back the money that councils took if they then remove the facility. So pressure really needs to be on the boroughs, rather than TfL.

There's a really good graphic showing the growth of segregated lanes in London but I can't put my finger on it - anyone?

Whilst it is encouraging to hear about cycling infrastructure spending, historically this meant pointless painting on streets which serve no purpose and are routinely ignored:  how can we ensure we push TfL to spend this money on segregated structures ?
