  • Rushgrove Park Draft Masterplan

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Plans to improve Rushgrove Park include a new crossing of the Silkstream near Colindeep Lane, with a new access point on Colindeep Lane, joining with the existing route following the western side of the park to emerge on Crossway.  The draft masterplan describes this as the "primary shared cycle and footpath with seasonal tree avenue".

  • Colindale Park Draft Masterplan

    Plans to improve Colindale Park include a 3.2m wide shared-use pedestrian/cyclist path linking Colindale Station and Sheaveshill Avenue.

    It is described in the draft masterplan as a commuting route - it's actually the 250m long path at the NE edge of the park.

  • Oaklands Road Liveable Street Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    Brent Council:

    Overview

    We are proposing to pedestrianise part of Oaklands Road (between Oaklands Passage and Cricklewood Broadway) and create a Liveable Street by removing general traffic and improving the urban realm.  

    Why We Are Consulting

    The proposed scheme aims to create a new, high quality, calm and interactive community space in the heart of Cricklewood. This supports the Council’s commitment to improving our town centre environments, encouraging walking and cycling and improving air quality.  It will also establish a less congested environment for the long-standing fruit and vegetable stall and an accessible and safe route for pedestrians, cyclists and people with mobility difficulties.

  • A5 crossing A406

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Two lanes of traffic merging from left onto local designated cycle route No 5. Cyclists crossing bridge going north on the A5 have to cross fast moving traffic merging from the left. A waiting area for cyclists could be provided at the base of the bridge to allow cyclists to cross the slip road at right angles. (Southbound is in Brent)

  • A41-A598 Burgess Hill

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    Cyclists going straight up the Finchley Road from Swiss Cottage to Golders Green have to cross two lanes of fast A41 traffic, where the Hendon Way turns off to the left.One possible solution would be for cycles to remain on the left and have a facility to use the pedestrian crossing across the top of the Hendon Way. Recommended route via Ardwick Road/Burgess Hill is not efficient and involves crossing 2 lanes when rejoining Finchley Road.

  • Twyford Abbey Road - Road Safety Scheme

    Created by Sylvia Gauthereau // 1 thread

    The proposed improvements include:


     Refreshing the existing loading restrictions and the advisory cycling lanes in Abbey Road
    to make them safer for cyclists and to prevent vehicles from parking on them
     Providing new mandatory cycling lanes in Rainsford Road to link the industrial area to the
    existing Grand Union Cycling Route and to improve connectivity cycling lanes in the area
     Providing new vehicle activated LED electronic signs to slow traffic and improve safety, for
    pedal cyclists and motorcycles
     Improving road safety at the junction of Twyford Abbey Road with Rainsford Road by
    extending the existing raised table, narrowing the carriageway width and providing onfootway cycling lane. This will slow traffic turning speed at the junction and get cyclists out of
    the way of heavy vehicles turning movement and hence improve safety for all road users
     Making crossing the road safer for vulnerable road users at the junction of Twyford
    Abbey Road with Rainsford Road by providing a zebra crossing
     Providing new direction signs where necessary to guide cyclists and pedestrians
    We will also take this opportunity to review all signs and street furniture to de-clutter and
    improve the streetscape. The enclosed drawing provides details of the proposals.

  • Furness Road Junction Improvement Scheme

    Furness Road Junction Improvement Scheme

    Who is consulting?

    Highways & Infrastructure

    Why are we consulting?

    Each year we identify roads in Brent which have the highest numbers of recorded Personal Injury Accidents (PIA’s). We then consider the introduction of road safety measures to help reduce the number of accidents.

    The junction of Furness Road with Harlesden High Street and Harrow Road has been identified as a location with a high number of accidents. Over the last 3 years there have been 9 traffic accidents recorded at the junction. 1 accident resulted in serious injury and 8 accidents resulted in slight injury. 3 accidents involved a pedestrian, 2 involved a pedal cyclist and 2 involved motorcyclists.

    The existing pedestrian facilities at this junction are also inadequate. The only protected pedestrian phase is across the southern arm of High Street Harlesden, with no formal crossings across all other approach arms to this very busy junction. Also most pedestrians tend to cross the junction on the north side of High Street Harlesden, which is not a protected and formal crossing.

    The other problem with this junction is the Furness Road approach. This is only a single lane approach with a free flowing, uncontrolled traffic movement for left-turning traffic. The right turning traffic obstructs the free flowing left-turning traffic even though it is uncontrolled. This is mainly due to the single lane approach to the junction holding the left-turning traffic which then causes long tail backs on Furness Road on daily basis, particularly during the peak hour periods. We are therefore proposing to introduce a comprehensive set of measures to reduce the number of traffic accidents and also improve junction capacity.
