  • Barnet Draft Long Term Transport Strategy 2020-2041 Consultation

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    "Barnet’s population is growing and by 2030 it will have grown to almost 450,000 people, with a significant increase in the older population. We want to ensure that transport in the borough can support this growth and provides a reliable, safe and convenient transport network which supports improvements to air quality and the health of all of our residents."

    "There is also limited road space in the borough and with the projected population growth, congestion can only be addressed by reducing our reliance on the car and encouraging more sustainable and active ways to travel such as walking, cycling and public transport."

    "Our proposed Long Term Transport Strategy sets a direction for change to offer greater choices for travel, encourage more active lifestyles which will increase the health and well-being of Barnet’s residents and improve air quality. The strategy also sets out a number of proposed schemes for each type of travel along with activities to help change behaviour and encourage positive changes to the way we currently travel."

    "

    Our vision

    The strategy includes the following vision statement relating to our long term vision for transport in the borough:

    By 2041, Barnet will have an efficient, convenient and reliable transport network, which enables safe, healthy and inclusive travel, protects the natural environment and supports the borough’s growth.

    The network will have transformed the way people and goods travel, providing strong orbital and radial links which gives everyone a choice of transport modes to complete their journey regardless of age, ability or income.

    This vision informs our proposals for the future of transport in the borough, and sets out a roadmap for achieving our vision which also complements other council policies such as the Growth Strategy(External link), the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy(External link), and the draft Local Plan(External link)."

  • Barnet Cycleway between Hornsey and North Finchley

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Barnet council says...

    Overview

    You and others in your area have a unique opportunity to benefit from Transport for London (TfL) funding to improve walking and cycling routes between Hornsey and North Finchley.

    We want to hear your views on our proposals that will transform streets in the borough. The improvements will help provide a future Cycleway between Alexandra Park in The London Borough of Haringey, through quiet streets and over the North Circular into The London Borough of Barnet; ending at North Finchley High Road A1000 amongst a busy parade of shops and cafes.

    Background

    The proposals are an important part of the Mayor of London Transport Strategy and Barnet’s ambition to get more people to walk and cycle. The proposals are guided by the Healthy Streets Approach(External link) which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.

    We have commissioned Sustrans Ltd(External link) as project coordinator and delivery partner for the Barnet section of the Cycleway route from Hornsey to North Finchley.

    Over the last two years Sustrans, in partnership with the council, engaged with residents in specific areas along the route to better understand local travel choices and concerns, road traffic and the quality of local streets.

    The proposals we are consulting on aim to address these issues, ensuring that improvements help to create an environment in which traffic is both reduced and slowed, and in which air quality is improved.

    What are we seeking your views on?

    This consultation is asking for your views on the draft concept designs for the route.

    Specifically, we are seeking your views on:

    • the layout of proposed street alterations within the draft concept designs
    • any comments you may have on the overall draft route.

    For more information on our proposals please read our FAQ document.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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."

  • Bowes CPZ

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 2 threads

    Parking patterns in the Bowes area have changed. Enfield Council has, in recent years, received numerous enquiries from residents of the area, and petitions covering four different streets that indicate community support for permit parking controls.

    Enfield Council is now seeking views on its proposals for a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ.)

    Why We Are Consulting
    Enfield Council is confident that zonal parking controls will prove popular with residents and offer them greatly improved parking opportunities. Area wide zonal controls can also reduce local congestion and prompt better travel habits amongst those heading to or through the area on their daily commute.

    The Council is consulting to make residents aware of its propsals and to seek their comments before plans are finalised or taken forward.

  • Proposals for the Creation of a Major Road Network (London)

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    From the DfT:
    As part of the Transport Investment Strategy, the government committed to creating a Major Road Network (MRN).

    This consultation asks for views on:
    how to define the MRN
    the role that local, regional and national bodies will play in the MRN investment programme
    which schemes will be eligible for MRN funding

    A new MRN would help deliver the following objectives:
    reduce congestion
    support economic growth and rebalancing
    support housing delivery
    support all road users
    support the Strategic Road Network

    The creation of an MRN will allow for dedicated funding from the National Roads Fund to be used to improve this middle tier of our busiest and most economically important local authority ‘A’ roads.

  • New London Plan 2017

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London.gov.uk says:

    What is the new London Plan?
    The London Plan is one of the most important documents for this city.
    It's a strategic plan which shapes how London evolves and develops. All planning decisions should follow London Plan policies, and it sets a policy framework for local plans across London.
    The current 2016 consolidation Plan is still the adopted Development Plan. However the Draft London Plan is a material consideration in planning decisions. It gains more weight as it moves through the process to adoption, however the weight given to it is a matter for the decision maker.

    Consultation on the draft London Plan
    Consultation on this plan is open. Comments will be publicly available. After the consultation, comments are reviewed by an inspector and you may be called in to discuss comments at the Examination in Public.

    What is an Examination in Public?
    At the end of the consultation period your comments will be reviewed by the independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to carry out the Examination in Public for the London Plan.
    You may be invited to discuss your comments at the Examination in Public. All comments will be made available to the public at the end of the consultation period. The legal provisions for the London Plan are in Part VIII of the Greater London Authority (GLA) Act 1999 (as amended) in sections 334 to 341. The Examination in Public is covered in Section 338.

  • Heavy Goods Vehicles Safety Standard Permit /Direct Vision Standard

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Tfl says:

    We have undertaken research that shows that in 2015, Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) were involved in disproportionately high numbers of fatal collisions with cyclists (78 per cent) and pedestrians (20 per cent) on London’s streets, despite only making up four per cent of the overall miles driven in the Capital. The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) forms part of The Mayor, Sadiq Khan and TfL’s Vision Zero approach to reducing road danger. The DVS categorises HGVs on the level of the driver’s direct vision from the cab.

    We consulted earlier this year on the principles of a new DVS. Listening to the feedback from this consultation and working closely with industry and stakeholders we have now further developed this scheme. The Consultation report and Responses to Issues Raised document from this first phase of consultation are available to view in from the links at the bottom of this text. The responses showed that, in general, there is support for the principle of a Direct Vision Standard.

    We are now seeking your views on proposals to introduce a new Safety Standard Permit Scheme as part of DVS which widens our approach beyond direct vision and includes a safe system approach to allow us to address a broader range of road danger risks.

    The proposed scheme would require all HGVs over 12 tonnes to hold a Safety Permit to operate in Greater London from 2020. HGVs will be given a rating between ‘zero-star’ (lowest) and ‘five-star’ (highest). Only those vehicles rated ‘one star’ and above would be allowed to enter of operate in London from 2020. Zero rated vehicles would only be allowed if they can prove compliance through safe system measures. By 2024 only ‘three-star’ rated HGVs and above would automatically be given a Safety Permit. HGVs rated two star and below would need to demonstrate increased safety through progressive safe system measures.

    The safe system could include specific industry recognised measures such as sensors, visual warnings and comprehensive driver training. The Safety Standard Permit scheme would evolve over time, taking into account advances in technology.

    Detailed information about the scheme and the approach in which we have arrived at our current proposals are set out in the consultation document. A full Integrated Impact Assessment is also included.

    The consultation approach
    We are undertaking a phased consultation approach at key stages of the development of the consultation proposals to implement the Direct Vision Standard:

    Phase 1 (24 January to 18 April 2017) – we set out the case for HGV driver direct vision and consulted on the Mayor of London’s outline proposals to introduce a Direct Vision Standard for HGVs in London and the principles of the Standard itself. The responses showed that, in general, there is support for the principle of a Direct Vision Standard.

    Phase 2a – policy consultation (this consultation) – this current phase of consultation seeks views and feedback on the scheme proposals as outlined above and within the supporting consultation document which includes supporting technical reports including the full Integrated Impact Assessment. Feedback from this phase of consultation will be used to develop a second IIA and finalise the scheme proposals to be included in phase 2b of the consultation.

    Phase 2b - Final scheme proposals and statutory consultation (Spring/Summer 2018) – this final phase will consult on the final proposals for the HGV Safety Standard Permit Scheme, including statutory consultation on the appropriate regulatory measure to ban or restrict HGVs in London under the scheme, subject to UK Government and European Commission support and notification.

  • London Assembly cycling infrastructure investigation

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London Assembly says:

    Our investigation
    Over recent years, TfL policy has increasingly focused on the construction of physical cycling infrastructure on London’s roads. A change in direction towards more segregated infrastructure followed our report in 2012 recommending this approach.

    Our investigation will cover the full range of cycling infrastructure in London, with a particular focus on:

    Cycle Superhighways: a form of cycle lane, designed to make cycling safer by helping keep cyclists away from general traffic, and offer direct and continuous cycling on major routes.

    Quietways: a network of cycle routes that link key destinations, improving safety and convenience through small-scale interventions.

    Mini-Hollands: TfL schemes to invest neighbourhood-level improvements in walking and cycling, involving a range of interventions in each area.

    Cycle parking: provision of parking spaces on-street, at stations or in dedicated parking facilities.

    It is important that TfL is able to establish the effectiveness of the infrastructure it installs on London’s roads. We are concerned that to date there has been no comprehensive study of the new infrastructure’s impact on cycling safety, modal share and other road users.

    Questions to answer:

    1. What progress on new cycling infrastructure has been made under Sadiq Khan, and what are his long-term plans?
    2. Has TfL resolved the problems that delayed some cycling schemes under the previous Mayor?
    3. Has segregation delivered the anticipated benefits on the Cycle Superhighways? How many cyclists are using these routes?
    4. To what extent has segregation had negative consequences for other road users and, if necessary, how can this be mitigated?
    5. Have Quietways delivered their anticipated benefits? How many cyclists are using them?
    6. What are the differences in infrastructure between inner and outer London? How can TfL ensure infrastructure in different areas is sufficient and appropriate to the location?
    7. How will TfL’s new ‘Strategic Cycling Analysis’ help determine where and how to invest in infrastructure?
    8. How appropriate is the 400-metre target set in the draft Transport Strategy? Can we equate proximity with access?
    9. Is TfL’s approach to public engagement working effectively to improve scheme designs and meet stakeholder needs?
    10. Are Londoners sufficiently aware of the cycling infrastructure available to them, and how can awareness be increased?
    11. How is TfL using infrastructure to attract a more diverse range of people to cycle in London?
    12. Is there sufficient cycle parking in London, and is it in the right locations?
    13. How are the lessons of the Mini-Hollands and other previous cycling schemes being applied elsewhere?
    14. Should cycling infrastructure be oriented toward longer-distance commuting journeys, or more localised trips?

  • Quieter Neighbourhoods Consultation - Fox Lane Area

    Hamish F // 0 threads

    Enfield Council are consulting on these Quieter Neighbourhood treatments for the Fox Lane area. (which includes the Lakes Estate). They include "encouragement" of a 20mph zone supported by enhanced signage using large planter boxes, road narrowing, continuous footways, road humps, "fake road humps" (!), and points no entry.

    Plus a school street.

    This proposal is interesting in that the location of the (many) planter boxes remains flexible and is an opportunity for a trial to see what works, or use additional boxes.

  • Consultation on Wolves Lane Quieter Neighbourhood

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    Enfield Council are consulting on this 'Quieter Neighbourhood', part of Enfield's Mini Holland, treatments for residential areas.

    Although the Wolves Lane area consisted of a much wider area during the original consultation / workshop stage, including the roads adjoining the A105, the focus is now on Tile Kiln Lane and Chequers Way only. A school street is proposed for Oakthorpe School on Tile Kiln Lane with traffic banned at school run hours, and a zebra crossing for Chequers Way north of the current informal crossing at the roundabout with Tottenhall Road.

  • Consultation on Quieter Neighbourhood for Connaught Gdns N13

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    Enfield Council are consulting on these Quieter Neighbourhood treatments for the Connaught Gardens residential area. They include one-way streets with contraflow for bikes, 'point no-entries', sinusoidal speed humps and width restrictions to filter out HGVs.

    The measures are based on residents' workshops which took place in 2013/14, a more recent perception survey and traffic surveys.

    Hazelwood Lane, Connaught Gardens and Callard Ave form the main rat run through the area between the A105, Hedge Lane and the A406. No measures are being proposed for these streets. Hazelwood School is on Hazelwood Lane and residents report chaos at school run times, with conflict between parents trying to drive past each other on this narrow road, and sometimes mounting the pavement. The school operates a 'drop, wave and go' policy - children are dropped from the car and the parent drives off without parking, while teachers escort the children into the school.

  • London Assembly investigation: Walking & Cycling at Outer London Junctions

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    London Assembly says:

    Our investigation
    What different approaches could TfL and London boroughs take to improve junctions and increase walking and cycling in Outer London?

    Small pockets of improvement don’t change the fact that most London streets are dominated by traffic and noise. They are hostile places even to step out into for a pint of milk.

    On behalf of the London Assembly Transport Committee, Caroline Russell AM is investigating how our streets and junctions can become more people-friendly.

    Get involved
    There are a number of specific questions the Committee is seeking to answer. Please address any questions where you have relevant views and information to share, and feel free to cover any other issues you would like the Committee to consider.

    Are there lessons to be learned from previous junction improvements?

    How can we enable more people to walk and cycle?

    How can we make our streets and junctions less hostile to people getting around by bike and on foot?

    How do you get all road users on board?

    Please email transportcommittee@london.gov.uk by August 11 and share the investigation on Twitter using #OuterLondonJunctions

    Key Facts
    The Mayor and TfL are promoting walking and cycling as a form of active travel and a way to reduce health inequalities - however, currently, over 40 percent of Londoners fall short of the recommended 150 minutes of activity per week.

    TfL research has found that people who live in Outer London tend to walk less than those who live in Inner London. Public transport coverage is lower and car ownership is higher in Outer London, with cars making up a larger share of journeys. In particular, people who live in Outer London are less likely to walk children to school, walk to see friends or relatives, and walk to pubs, restaurants and cinemas.

    In 2015:
    53 percent of Inner Londoners walked at least five journeys a week, compared to 35 percent of Outer Londoners
    47 percent of Inner Londoners walked as part of longer journeys on other forms of transport at least five times a week, compared to 41 percent of Outer Londoners
