  • Cockfosters station major development

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    NO MENTION OF IMPROVED BUS, PEDESTRIAN OR CYCLE ACCESS.

    TfL and Grainger plc are working in partnership to prepare plans for a residential development at the Cockfosters station car park site.

    - Utilise brownfield, public sector land to help deliver around 400 new private and affordable homes for rent;
    - Preserve and enhance the setting of the Grade II listed London Underground station;
    - Through quality design, create a positive relationship between any new development and Trent Park Conservation Area and
    Grade II listed park and gardens which form part of the Greenbelt;
    - To create new public and private spaces and improve the access point to the London Loop trail and Trent Park;
    - To encourage a shift to more sustainable modes of public transport and reduce the need to travel by car in the local area; and
    - To deliver a car-free development, with the exception of disabled car parking for both station users and new residents.

    An initial public event was held on 18th June. A detailed public exhibition is due autumn 2019 followed by a detailed planning application.

  • Consultation on cycling scheme for Waltham Cross

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    Email from Highways England copied and pasted below:

    Dear consultee,

    I’m contacting you on behalf of the consultancy Atkins who are working with Highways England to investigate new cycle facilities in and around Waltham Cross. The routes are likely to comprise a range of facilities including segregated cycle tracks next to main roads, signed routes on quieter residential streets and, where necessary, some ‘traffic-free’ sections shared with pedestrians. Proposals are being considered to connect the town centre with other public rights of way and key sites including the following:

    • Waltham Cross Train Station
    • Theobalds Grove Train Station
    • the proposed Park Plaza development sites
    • the Cycle Enfield network

     The purpose of this consultation exercise is to gather the views of relevant local organisations on walking, cycling and horse-riding in the area around the scheme. We would like to hear any views you have on current conditions for walking, cycling and horse-riding in the local area affected by the proposals (shown in the attached local area map).

     This scheme is being investigated as part of Highways England’s ‘Designated Funds’ programme. The objectives of the programme include to:

    • maximise opportunities to deliver additional improvements as part of new road schemes
    • improve cycling facilities on, or near, the Highways England road network
    • reduce the impact of Highways England roads as a barrier to cycling

     Improvements in and around Waltham Cross have been chosen to act as strategic connections between key facilities such as transport interchanges and employment centres as well as existing public rights of way. These proposals are additional and independent to the Highways England M25 junction 25 Improvement Scheme. Whilst the proposals at M25 junction 25 are not part of this consultation, more information can be found on the Highways England website: https://highwaysengland.co.uk/projects/m25-junction-25-improvements/

     If you have any questions on the proposed Waltham Cross cycle route improvement scheme or any related issues, please ask. Otherwise, please could you reply to us with any views by Friday 3rd May.

  • Proposed A10/Lincoln Road Walking and Cycling Improvements

    Hamish F // 1 thread

    From the consultation hub, verbatim:

    These proposals are part of a wider TfL programme to encourage people to choose to cycle or walk in Enfield, which is being implemented by Enfield Council in partnership with us. We would like to hear your views on the proposals.

    What are we proposing?

    We propose to upgrade the existing staggered pedestrian crossing on the northern arm of the junction between Lincoln Road and the A10. The crossing would be made wider and would become a toucan crossing, enabling cyclists to use it as well. The existing zebra crossing on the western arm of Lincoln Road would become a parallel cycle/zebra crossing.

    Some areas of footway would be widened to enable people to access to both crossings more easily. The changes to the footway would mean that the entrance to the residential access road which joins Lincoln Road at the junction with the A10 would become narrower, and exiting vehicles would be asked to give way to any vehicles wishing to enter.

    See the website link for details including drawings and to submit comments.

    Enfield Cycling Campaign intends to submit a considered response after discussion.

  • Segregated cycle path on approach to North Circular

    The A105 southbound has segregated cycle lanes and then a bus lane until the bus lane ends just short of the North Circular. The bus lane ending creates a vicious pinch point for cyclists with a metal barrier on the left and cars pushing into the lane from the right to avoid the queue of vehicles turning right into the North Circular.

    As the pavement on the left is very wide, there is enough space to paint a short stretch of bicycle lane onto the pavement, starting where the bus lane ends (so as to not interfere with the bus stop) and ending at Regents Avenue where the road is wide enough and one can continue into the bicycle box at the North Circular junction.
