  • Carshalton Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal & Management Plan Consu

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    Doing a quick scan of the document see some enoughing comments on segregated cycleway in high st, parking and a cycle networks.

    Unfortunately skip to the table at the end and it seems to be Medium to Long term objectives so real actions lacking. 

    see p53 Guideline SS4: The Northern Side of the High Street

    Any redevelopment should take the opportunity to create a
    segregated cycle path parallel to the High Street.

    p61
    7.29 Assisting a shift to more sustainable modes of transport would also be
    beneficial. Expanding the cycle network to create a segregated cycle way and
    increasing the pedestrian access and wayfinding for pedestrians to and from
    the High Street and Grove Park would also be welcome by-products, should a
    comprehensive redevelopment of the north side of the High Street take place.

    Guideline G9: Traffic and Transport
    The council will seek to improve the cycling network and pedestrian
    network throughout the Conservation Area as opportunities arise.

  • Western Road/Tate Road : Proposed improvements outside Homefield Preparatory Sch

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    The Sutton local area committee has agreed for officers to carry out improvements outside Homefield preparatory school in Western Road at its junction with Tate Road. Funding for the scheme has been secured from Transport for London (TfL) to address concerns raised by the school regarding unacceptable traffic speeds and difficulty in crossing the road outside the school.

    Highways officers have met with school representative to assess these issues and a preliminary improvement scheme has been drawn as shown on the attached plan which aims to address concerns regarding traffic speeds and pedestrian safety. The scheme is fully supported by the school. 

    The scheme proposes to change the priority at Western Road junction with Tate Road and introduce a raised table with a kerb build-out to assist pupils and parents to cross the road and to help reduce traffic speeds outside the school. The scheme also includes re-arranging and providing additional ‘school keep clear’ markings and installation of red/yellow pencil bollards.

    Whilst there were no pedestrian accidents recorded at the location in the last three years, the proposed measures will improve pedestrian safety and thus promote walking as a sustainable mode of travel.

  • Mulgrave Road Junction with Bridge Road & Worcester Road - Zebra Crossing

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/mulgravebridge/ plans https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/mulgravebridge/user_uploads/t30135---mulgrave-road---proposed-zebra-crossing-a4-l-1.pdf Pelican zebra but also parking bays added to North side and double yellows on the other.


    Update:



    Dear all,


    Mulgrave Road JUNCTION WITH bridge road and worcester road – PROPOSED Changes to zebra crossing


    Further to our formal consultation Notice dated 24 January 2019 regarding a zebra crossing in Mulgrave Road, I am writing to inform about changes to the length of the zig-zag markings of the crossing.


    A safety audit has been carried out on the proposed zebra crossing. The safety auditors have expressed concern about injudicious loading activity on the eastern approach to the crossing that could adversely affect the inter-visibility.


    Auditors have stated the following on the extent of zig-zag marking on the east approach:


    ‘’The zig-zag lines, however, are short and have only four strokes.  This may permit loading activity to take place close to the crossing and adversely affect inter-visibility.  Therefore, Inadequate inter-visibility may make it more difficult for pedestrians to safely assert precedence to cross’’


    In response to the concern raised by auditors, we are proposing to extend the zig-zag markings on the eastern approach by additional four strokes as shown on the attached plan. The construction of the crossing is programmed to start at the end of April 2019. If you would like to make any comments or observations regarding the proposed changes, please email us the  before the end of 22nd of March  2018.

  • Demand Responsive Bus Trial

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    Two phases firstly to the West of Manor Road / London (Wallington), the second to the East.

    see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/demand-responsive-bus-trial/user_uploads/demand-responsive-bus-trial-map.pdf

    It looks like an Uber fleet of 6-8 economical 14 seater buses.

    Following consultation:

    We will then report on the outcome ahead of the launch of the 12 month trial.

    It should be noted that as a research trial, collecting feedback from users as well as other groups to understand feedback from non-users too will continue throughout the 12 month trial.  

     Check the TFL site for more

    Key points:

    What are we proposing?

    This is a trial service that does not have a fixed route or schedule, but ‘responds’ to the request to be picked up by the customer. It can be booked at the desired time of travel, primarily through an app, and provide real time updates to customers of vehicle arrival time and guarantees a seat for confirmed bookings.  

    Vehicles      

    The service will run using up to eight Mercedes Cityline Low floor Sprinter 14 seater vehicles. The vehicles will be Euro VI compliant bringing them in line with the Ultra Low Emission Zone vehicle standards, and will be fully wheelchair accessible.

  • Sutton's Parking Consultation Stage 1

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    From the council page (Note says this is South of Sutton, map not that clear so don't trust the area used here on cyclescape)

    With the fourth highest car ownership levels in London, and residents telling us that parking is a major and growing concern, our Parking Strategy aims to improve local parking and traffic situations across the borough.

    Our parking consultation will be rolled out in three phases, with each phase covering different locations across the borough. This Stage 1 Parking Consultation kicks off the second phase, where we'll be consulting with some residents in the Sutton South, Cheam & Belmont and Carshalton & Clockhouse Local Committee areas, as shown in the map below.

    Responses to this Parking Survey will help us understand about parking on your street. Whether you have parking problems or not, we’d like to hear from you as all feedback will be fed into parking and traffic management proposals being made for your street.

  • Collingwood Road & Anton Crescent Area Improvements

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/collingwoodroad/

    plans https://sutton.citizenspace.com/environment/collingwoodroad/user_uploads/t30139-c-002-to-010---collingwood-road---consultaion-plans-v0.4.pdf

    Quite a few improvements to junctions, change to the flow of one way, improvements and extension of 20mph zone and removal of speed cushions

    Details of Proposed Improvements
    The proposed improvements include the following main features, as detailed on the attached Plan Overview:

    A. Width restrictions with priority give-ways to replace existing refuge islands, and speed cushions. (refer to details 3,4,11 &12)

    There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions. Parents have expressed a sense of vulnerability while crossing at the refuge islands. The existing carriageway width do not allow widening of the refuge islands, which would be the ideal solution, and therefore width restrictions are proposed. This will provide more footway space for pedestrians and a shorter distance to cross. In addition, the safety risks of vehicles driving on the wrong side of the refuge island observed on site can be avoided.There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions.

    B. Reversal of one-way on Anton Crescent. (refer to details, 4, 7, 8, & 9)

    The current direction of one-way on Anton Crescent results in regular congestion outside the school during drop-off and pick up times which at times impacts the flow of traffic on Collingwood Road. Reversing the direction will provide more queuing space for school traffic on Anton Crescent thus minimise impact on Collingwood Road.

    C. Raised junction entry treatment. (refer to details, 4, 5 & 10)

    The raised entry treatments will provide a level surface for pedestrians when crossing side roads and will help to slow down the in and out movement of traffic.

    D. Improvement to walking routes leading to school. (refer to details, 3, 7, 8 & 9)

    The area adjacent to the school entrance will be raised. It is proposed to surface the existing grass verge on Anton Crescent adjacent to No. 298 Collingwood Road and widen the footway from the entrance to the Wetlands access leading up to the school entrance to improve walking routes.

    E. Signage and road markings.

    School warning signs, elderly crossing, weight restriction, bridge height and speed limit signs will be reviewed and adjusted or new ones provided where necessary. 20mph roundels will be refreshed and more added to emphasize the speed limit in the area.

  • Sutton Tram Link

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/trams/sutton-link/?cid=sutton-link

    Here's the overview from TFL:

    Overview
    We are consulting on proposals for a new, direct and quicker transport link between Sutton and Merton. We have called this the Sutton Link.

    The Sutton Link would create a high-capacity route for people travelling between Sutton town centre and Merton using zero-emission vehicles. It would connect with other major transport services into central London and across south London, including National Rail, London Underground, existing tram and bus services. It would make journeys by public transport quicker and more attractive, and reduce the need for trips by private car.

    Many of the neighbourhoods along the proposed routes have limited public transport options. The Sutton Link would support new homes being built and would improve access to jobs, services, major transport hubs and leisure opportunities across both boroughs and beyond.

    Our work is at a stage where we would like to know your views about three potential routes. We are considering a tram or ‘bus rapid transit’ (BRT) for the Sutton Link and would also like to know your views on this.

    BRT is similar to a tram but runs on road segregated from traffic where possible, not on rails, and carries fewer people in each vehicle. A full explanation is included below in the section titled ‘About trams and bus rapid transit’.

    From LCC -

    general principles would be ensure this doesn’t negatively impact cycle routes, that there are good routes to the stations/stops, that any places where cyclists will be crossing tracks are designed carefully with latest materials to avoid tramlining incidents, that the space comes from private car lanes.
