  • Barnet LIP

    Created by Simon Still // 2 threads

    The third Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) was published in March 2018 and sets out a new strategic direction for transport in London. It aims to change the way people choose to travel with an overarching vision for 80% of all trips in London to be made on foot, cycle or using public transport by 2041. Each London Borough has to prepare a Local Implementation Plan (LIP) containing proposals for the implementation of the MTS in its area. Barnet’s draft LIP includes Barnet’s transport objectives and identifies key local issues, challenges and opportunities to achieving the overarching mode share aim and nine MTS outcomes. It includes a delivery plan that sets out, in broad terms, the proposals and resources that will deliver the LIP objectives and targets associated with indicators related to the MTS outcomes. A number of statutory consultees will be specifically invited to comment on the draft LIP, but we want everyone who lives in or visits the borough to have an opportunity to comment too. Give us your views A copy of the draft LIP is provided here. We would particularly like your views on: have the main challenges and opportunities to delivering the MTS vision and outcomes been identified (pages 24-60); are the borough transport objectives identified in the document (pages 26-29) suitable for addressing the challenges; should the LIP include other major proposals or general areas of work (pages 62-74 & 80-81); should any other targets be identified (pages 103-110) Please provide your comments by email to traffic.consultations@barnet.gov.uk(External link) including LIP3 in the title ,or by post FAO Jane Shipman, Re, Floor 11, Barnet House, 1255 High Road, London, N20 0EJ.

  • Duncombe School Streets Consultation

    Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Duncombe Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal. The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Sussex Way and Hatchard Road (between Marlborough Rd and Cornwallis Rd) between 8.30am-9.15am and 3.15pm-4pm during school term time. Vehicles will not be able to enter the street between these times unless they have been given an exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register for an exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends. Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.

  • Enfield Transport Plan - Local Implementation Plan

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    "The Enfield Transport Plan (ETP) outlines what we will do over the next few years to improve those parts of the transport network which the Council is responsible for. Alongside this there will be continuing maintenance and, at the other end of the scale, delivery of strategic projects, such as the new Meridian Water station. The core of the ETP is Enfield’s third Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which is a statutory document setting out how the Council proposes to help implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy. The LIP also details how we propose to spend funding received from Transport for London (TfL). At the heart of the plan is improving people’s health. Our local priorities reflect this, with a focus on making travel more sustainable, active and safe: • Making active travel the natural choice, particularly for those trips less than 2km in length. • Making more school trips safe, sustainable and healthy. • Reducing the impact of private vehicles on our streets. • Making the public transport network more accessible and the natural choice for longer trips. • Maintaining our assets for the benefit of the public."

  • Higham Road and Wilmot Road, London N17

    Created by Grant // 1 thread

    The following proposal has been received from Haringey traffic engineers. Please add your comments to the discussion thread to inform our response: 'We have received complaints from residents and previous ward councillors that Higham Road and Wilmot Road often suffers from severe congestion caused by the narrow width of these roads, which form part of the W4 bus route. In order to improve general traffic flow and the reliability of the W4 bus service, we propose to convert sections of these roads to one-way working, except cycles. The key measures are listed below: - Convert Higham Road from Downhills Park Road to its junction with Hastings Road to one-way working, in a northbound direction, except for cycles. - Convert Wilmot Road from its junction at Hastings Road to Pendennis Road to one-way working in a southbound direction, except for cycles.

  • DfT Policy Paper - Inclusive Transport Strategy

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/inclusive-transport-strategy Lots of interesting stuff about inclusive transport regarding trains, buses, cars, public realm, streets and yes a bit about cycling too. Quotes: Shared Space: 8.11 While we consider CIHT and DPTAC’s recommendations and how to take them forward, we are requesting that local authorities pause any shared space schemes incorporating a level surface they are considering, and which are at the design stage. We are also temporarily suspending Local Transport Note 1/11. This pause will allow us to carry out research and produce updated guidance. Objectives regarding Cycling: • Update Local Transport Note 2/08, which sets out the Department’s guidance to local authorities on designing safe and inclusive infrastructure for cyclists, to take account of developments in cycling infrastructure since its publication in 2008 and the responses to the draft AAP consultation and publish a revised version by early 2019; • By 2020, explore the feasibility of amending legislation to recognise the use of cycles as a mobility aid71 in order to increase the number of disabled people cycling.

  • Rate my route - software / app ideas anyone?

    Created by GG // 1 thread

    For a long time I have wondered about a crowd-sourced cycleability map. In this, people cycle along a link (accepting the first question of how to define the beginning and end of this) then give it a thumbs up or down. After enough people do this, then others can see how popular it is. Some people wonder about subjectivity but I think this should be less of a problem with more voters. The reason I am asking is because this method could apply to a potential commercial project for a Council which wants to drive around 100km of rural roads and use a panel of 4 experts to grade meaningful segments on a 1 to 7 scale according to their suitability for HGV movements. Any views on whether this is already done within an app I am not aware of, or could be it done by anyone as an add-on to something else, or is it something CamCycle could offer as a commercial package (there may well be more than one local authority looking for this sort of thing)
