  • Footbridge over Railway path at Whitehall school

    Created by BCyC Chair // 1 thread

    Persistent conflict between cycling and pedestrians on busy crossing by school. This is a downhill section of the path on a major commuting route so speeds are often high. There used to be a bridge over the railway here and could easily be again. Would need to be shared use but people on bikes won't use it much as they're entering or leaving the Railway Path.

  • Prince St Bridge - Quick Fix

    Created by Eric Booth // 2 threads

    Prince St bridge is an anarchic pigs ear. I like pigs and fond of a bit of anarchy but it's getting beyond a joke. Of course it will all be sorted out properly in due course but we could live with this for years. Here's a quick fix:

    SOUTH
    1. Move south vehicle stop line back 10m behind tramlines
    2. Remove all bollards unless one or two kept in line with centre of bridge with arrows right for cars
    3. Widen cycle lane from bridge to Festival way turn so suitable for 2-way cycling.
    4. Put in Give Way painted line at an angle running from enlarged cycle lane to centre line so southbound cyclists alerted to need to filter across traffic.

    NORTH
    1. Remove all bollards
    2. Widen cycle lane for 2 way cycling all the way up to the traffic lights with The Grove.
    3. Remove 5 bollards on each side of north bound traffic light along with the two set back
    4. Paint cycle lane passing behind light and then back onto carriageway making it nice and clear that it's an option for cyclists when lights red or they can carry on (as most will, no worse than now but at least it will be clear that they can treat these as 'give way')
    5. There will need to be 'give way' paint to make clear that pedestrians have right of way on the by-pass.

    Yes it's muddled but less so than now and makes the desire lines easier. It's also a cheap paint based fix pending the proper job.

  • Inadequate Cycle Channels On Vauxhall Foot Bridge

    Created by Sam Saunders // 1 thread

    Vauxhall Bridge between Coronation Road and Cumberland Road has a channel provided for wheeling bicycles on one side of its stepped sections. The channel is so narrow and so close to the railings that a bike can only be wheeled along it at a severe tilt. In addition only one side has a channel so wheeling the bike in the opposite direction has to be done from the wrong side of the bike, making it even more awkward.
