  • Contraflow on Park Terrace

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    The section of Park Terrace behind the hotel is wide enough for a cycle contraflow.

    Although people can cycle in front of the pavilion, this is shared use and can be busy with pedestrians. It also means encountering traffic lights involving a wait unnecessarily.

    Given that there is space, there seems no good reason not to provide a contraflow - in line with the principle that two-way cycling should be possible unless there is no space to do so.

  • Two-way cycling in one way streets - 2017

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 2 threads

    We have reached the final phase of the project to open up restricted streets to two-way for cyclists in Cambridge - and residents can have their say.

    Many restricted streets have already been opened up to two-way cycling over the last 10 years following a Department for Transport trial. Allowing cyclists to be exempt from no-entry restrictions, and to travel both ways on one-way streets, is a cost effective and easy way of expanding the city cycle network.

    After consultation with residents and stakeholders last year followed by a meeting at the Cambridge Joint Area Committee in January, we are proposing to make 15 one-way or restricted entry streets two-way for cycling. Local residents will be notified of these Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) regarding proposed two-way cycling in restricted streets in Cambridge.

    Please email policyandregulation AT by 1 September 2017 with your comments.

  • Corn Exchange Street contraflow to close for 2 months

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Corn Exchange Street contraflow is to close temporarily.

    Advanced notice of temporary cycle lane closure (aka Woodburn Way) has been published in the Cambridge News. Cars apparently able to proceed, which I find puzzling.

  • Garden Walk is two-way

    Created by Simon Nuttall // 2 threads

    Garden Walk is a two way street for all but the last few metres at it's junction with Victoria Road. At that end there is a cycle bypass to the no-entry. It's a bodge up that only transport planners understand.

    I've experienced it myself, but a resident of the street tells me of her frequent problems with aggressive oncoming traffic (mostly van drivers) that barge at her as she rides up the road. When she tries to point out how the street works they don't listen and challenge her knowledge because of her french accent.

    I've suggested these two signage solutions...

    Blue signs...

    Big bicycle markings on the road...

    Created by Simon Nuttall // 1 thread

    A campaign member and resident of the area has sent this:

    I've just received a consultation paper from the City Council for residents of Stanley Road, Garlic Row and Oyster Row. I've summarised the proposals below.Scheme 2 Option B seemed the most significant.

    Scheme 1. Extension of parking and loading restrictions on Stanley Road
    Scheme 2, Option A. "No entry except cycles" on Garlic Row adjacent to the junction with Mercers Row
    Scheme 2, Option B. Oyster Row becomes one-way in the northeasterly direction. No exemption for cycles.
