Good report in the CNJ with Paul's brilliant picture of a family cycling up Haverstock Hill. That picture tells the whole story!

Cycle lanes will be built in Haverstock Hill – after an attempt to ditch the scheme fell flat.

Please sign TFL consultation to increase PCN cost & reduce people parking in red cycle routes #cyclesafe

Steve Prowse
 

To help keep London moving safely and reduce disruption and delays we are proposing to increase the fine level (TfL penalty charge) from £130 to £160 for people who fail to follow the rules of the red route network (those roads we manage in London). The fine level would be reduced by half to £80 if paid within 14 days.

You do have to register first, so it does take 5 mins. Please add comments in the last free text box e.g. There needs to be more enforcement and more towing of vehicles that are causing delays for busses and danger for cyclists.


Re: Call in on Haverstock Hill cycling plans

John Chamberlain
 

Yes - we are definitely planning to ask for a deputation on the 26th and will also be taking action to draw media attention to the issue and to the Conservative councillors opposition to the plans. Linus summarises the benefits very well - the plans would replace car parking with cycle lanes on a route that has been in Camden's Transport strategy since 2019. The 'alternatives' suggested by the councillors are circuitous, on busy one-way roads with little space for cycle lanes, involving steeper hills and totally ignore anyone living or with a destination to the west of Haverstock Hill.

Linus - we'll take you up on your offer! If anyone else would like to help, please email me direct (john@...)

Cllr Steve Adams, Cllr Oliver Cooper, Cllr Andrew Parkinson, and Cllr Gio Spinella want the scheme halted and an alternative to be considered.

This is an important direct route for cyclists from Hampstead to Camden Town, and if implemented would provide a link to the already established Prince of Wales Road, Royal College Street, Midland Road and Judd Street LTN. This route with the addition of Haverstock Hill and Rosslyn Hill would provide a direct safe route from Hampstead to Bloomsbury; and then also connect to the C6 route to Blackfriars and Elephant and Castle.

Is CC making a deputation against the call-in? Can I help?

Dangerous Junctions

John Chamberlain
 

From LCC's Friday post - dates for your diaries and a petition to fill in if you haven't already.

And a reminder about our meeting tonight - details at https://camdencyclists.org.uk/events/members-meeting-2021-08-16/

Dr Marta Krawiec: TWO protest rides

Dr Marta Krawiec's death last week at a known blackspot in Holborn has angered cycle users - and medics, too, across London. We've had enough of losing loved ones. We don't want to keep having to do this, especially not in Holborn. The two protests are well-spaced to keep momentum going, and it's not an either/or - do join both if you can. 

Protest ride 1: Friday 20 August, start 5.30pm

We're pleased to support Stop Killing Cyclists for this ride, which will include die-ins. Details on the link below:

https://www.facebook.com/events/180077344072270/

Protest ride 2: Wednesday 8 September, time tbc

Led by LCC, this will include a short (but very slow) ride around some of the worst junctions in the vicinity of Holborn. Please put it down for early evening for now, and we'll share more information next week. 

#DangerousJunctions petition - still open

Please sign and share the petition if you can.

Re: Camden monthly Meeting draft agenda (16 Aug 2021)

Steven Edwards
 

Thanks Ema, (and also Berwyn-
I hadn’t heard about the collision on England’s Lane).

I agree with George re spending much of the meeting on
item 4 but suggest this could be directly linked with item 6 (Camden’s Ambition) which will also require further meetings & discussion.

Re: 4. SKC have a Die-In (for Dr Marta Krawiec) planned for the 20th: I’ll be making a short speech
(which will be focussed on Camden’s progress rather than failings, but still calling for broad action from all councils in accordance with:

• the deterioration of motorist behaviour & ongoing promotion of car-as-default leading to unacceptable traffic volumes
• the latest IPCC and demands against the backdrop of the earlier than predicted climate events..

(I’ve just now seen confirmation that LCC will be supporting: SKC will be supporting LCC’s ride in September)

Re: 6. (Ambition) While CCC acts in accordance with what is politically feasible (and thankful for some enlightened councillors & officers), I would repeat my argument for an increase in our demand, proportionate to the two key points above:

• the threat from rising levels of motor traffic &
drop in basic driving standards 

• the threat from irreversible, and *spiralling*, climate breakdown (still largely dismissed by most media agencies).

I suggest an acknowledgement (without call for NVDA unless you feel so inclined) of  XR’s theme of ‘Impossible Rebellion’, due shortly, and eh September, Parents For A Future uprising slogan: Be Scientifically Realistic.
Demand the Politically Impossible.

The tangled current political mess offers conflicting positive & negative voices, from both Labour & Conservatives, impacting funding allocated to both Sadiq Khan and Camden.

So, for cycling & walking to be *actually* prioritised across the borough we should now demand the ‘impossible’ (!)

(The consequences of failing to act appropriately are not good. Our trajectory is currently for 3ºC above pre-industrial temps).

The new IPCC report, like the TDP (Transport Decarbonisation Plan), requires a shift in ambition locally and nationally.

XR Roads Rebellion is assisting with action to defeat the government’s planned £27.4 billion new roads programme (ultimately £90 billion to 2035) that goes hand-in-hand with the govt/media mantra of “EV sales & economic growth”.

This is essential to halt the car culture habit leading to excessive demand for access across our borough and capital (amounting to literally billions of miles driven in just London, per year)

Note) Transport emissions = highest sector
(surface) transport = highest %)
Transport emissions = the only sector where emissions are still growing

So I suggest considering what’s needed for Camden to be more like Utrecht or Paris an to *actually*

Prioritise cycling (and public transport)
Disincentivise car ownership, usage and storage

Some suggestions
(that Camden should support even if not covered in their remit):

1) Full roll-out of LTNs across Camden

2) Car-As-Guest policy: 9mph speeds on side roads

3) 20mph enforcement borough-wide

4) Expansion and rapid implementation of (light seg) cycle lanes
on ALL main routes (contra-flow on all routes)

5) Direct/priority (as per new HC rules - tbc Sep) right of way across junctions for pedestrians and cyclists - demarcated with lines/paint & also extending pavement across the junction maintaining the same height from the road
(as in PoW Rd)

6) Removal of car-parking from main routes.

7) Reduction of subsidy for car parking (subsidised car storage)

8) Toll roads at boundary entrances

9) Camden to support smarter/per-mile road pricing to M25 boundary

10) Camden to demand cancellation of Silvertown &
reallocation of funds to TfL active/public transport 

11) Greening of streets as flood mitigation (depaving)

12) Removal of all pavement parking (e.g. Gospel Oak, Chetwynd etc)

13) Scrappage scheme - cars for (e)bikes (&/or subsidised bus/tube/train travel)

14) Reduction/removal of short term (covid) & long term school car parking

Car blocking cycle lane Royal College Street

Luke Pearson
 

Hello everyone

I noticed an incident of people using the bike line as a parking spot, as I was walking rather than cycling I took a photo ( he was blocking the cycling Lane on double yellow lines. I am aware that he is in the loading bay but at the time I took the photo he was not loading anything into his van he was just sitting in his van with his warning lights flashing.

Hi Ema thanks.

Following all the interesting emails about vans/cars parking on cycle lanes, would it be of interest to talk about how we can encourage Camden Council to allow online reporting such as Westminster ?

I was also very impressed with the Haringey Councillor getting involved in the one instance in his borough, can we do something to make our own councillors better ?  a bit of pressure perhaps ?

- for eastbound cyclists a Tiger crossing into the contraflow on Wilmot Place west
- for westbound cyclists, a bollard protected lane and a place to wait before turning right into the St Pancras Way cycle lane
- But they have not proposed a solution to how to make the right turn into Wilmot Place west from the northbound cycle track on Royal College Street. 

- Blended junction on Wilmot Place at Pancras Way

- Strong blue paint markings where the cycle lanes on Royal College Street pass the junction with Wilmot Place

- Make Jeffreys St/ Wilmot Place, between Prowse Place and St Pancras Way, two-way for motor vehicles (introduces left hook risk - is blue paint enough?) 


This consultation closes on 31st  August. We encourage you to send a personal response (via the online survey at the bottom of this page):


CCC will send a response in favour taking in to account input from others

Re: Car blocking cycle lane station Road Woodgreen

Bob Hare
 

I've reported to Haringey Council parking with Luke's photo ...

For parking / roads

Outside the Akdeniz small supermarket.

This photo was posted on the Camden Cyclists email list, and will have
been seen by very many people including members of in Haringey Cycling
Campaign.

Parking on this cycle lane is a regular occurrence.

Questions:
1) Can you use a photo from a member of the public to follow up with
the driver (warning or fine)? The information on date and time should
be contained in the photo, or I could ask the person who posted the
item.
2) I appreciate that the rubber cycle lane markers here may not have
been fitted with posts because of the requirement of the adjacent shop
for deliveries. Could an enforcement camera be installed at the start
of the lane opposite River Park House? Is there anything else that can
be done to prevent cars parking in the lane?

Many thanks.

Cllr Bob Hare
