Listed issues, most recent first, limited to the area of Cyclenation:

  • Camulodunum Way Cycleway is sub-LTN 1/20

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The white line (6.5.2-3) segregated ~1.5m wide bidirectional cycleway (Table 5-2 & 5-3) along Camulodunum Way (CW) is obstructed by lamp columns.  As such it doesn't comply with LTN 1/20.

    The width should be increased to the recommended unconstrained minimum of 3m, proper allowance should be made for the lamp columns (or they should be moved), and demarcation should be improved from the obsolete white line.

  • Berechurch Hall Road Speed Limits

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    Berechurch Hall Road is a busy road that is becoming increasingly residential West of the junction with Berechurch Road (J1).  The speed limit has been reduced from 40mph to 30mph, except for a section of 40mph East of J1.

    To improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists, the current speed limits should be reduced by 10mph (Fig 4.1) and traffic lanes correspondingly narrowed (7.2.5-7).

  • Camulodunum Way - Baronswood Way Missing Link

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The sub-LTN 1/20 white line (6.5.2-3) segregated bidirectional cycleway (Table 5-2 & 5-3) along Camulodunum Way (CW) and Baronswood Way (BW) are not connected, leaving unconfident cyclists travelling North/South along CW via the toucan crossing from the new development 202025 unable to continue North to the Town Centre, as advertised in planning documents.

    The gap could be easily filled to the existing standard on CW/BW via footway conversion.

  • Highgate Road Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    Camden is consulting on making permanent the trial scheme put in during summer 2020:

    • Extension of hours of operation to 24/7 – “at all times” for the following bus lanes on Highgate Road:
      • the southbound bus lane CMO15 which runs from St Albans Road to Dartmouth Park Road,
      • the northbound bus lane CMO16 which runs from Carrol Close (97 Highgate Road) to Wesleyan Place,
      • and the southbound bus lane CMO17 which runs from Burghley Road to Fortess Road .
    • Waiting and loading restrictions extended to ‘at any time’ in all bus lanes.
    • Addition of two loading bays outside 109-111 Highgate Road in CMO16 and outside 12 Highgate Road in CMO17 with hours of operation of 7pm-7am for loading for commercial properties.

    They also propose the following new measures

    • the extension of the existing southbound bus lane “CMO15” to the north, up to the roundabout with Swains Lane
    • the removal of paid-for/permit parking bays along Highgate Road to remove existing pinch points and facilitate the extension of the bus lane (10 outside the tennis courts and 18 opposite Grove Terrace).
    • the introduction of ‘at any time’ waiting and loading restrictions at the junction of Highgate Road and Carrol Close, to improve road user and pedestrian safety

  • Millfield Lane Safe and Healthy Streets

    Created by Jean Dollimore // 1 thread

    In June 2020, a No Entry (with cycle exception) was placed on Millfield Lane just south of the junction of Merton Lane, making the southern section one way northbound for motor vehicles. In addition, several parking spaces were removed at the bend to provide more space for walking.  This was done with an experimental traffic order and Camden is now consulting on making the changes permanent and building a proper footway at the widened section.


    Camden also proposes:

    • to convert 11 extra parking bays on Millfield Lane to double yellow lines and double kerb blips to improve visibility, reduce conflict between drivers and cyclists and to minimise vehicle movements which are hazardous to pedestrians.
    • and to remove parking on Merton Lane close to the junction with West Hill
    • and to remove parking at the junction of Merton Lane and Millfield Lane and widen the footway

    They also ask whether we would like to have Merton Lane one-way for motor vehicles (eastbound only)

  • Active Travel in Fenland

    Created by Anna Williams – Comms Officer // 1 thread

    Camcycle would like to support communities across the county as part of our strategy to influence decision-making at a regional level and our campaign for Zero Carbon Streets in Cambridgeshire which aims to empower local groups to work for better walking and cycling in their areas. Fenland has historically been badly served in terms of active travel investment and is an important district in which to support improvements.

  • Guided busway hazard

    Created by Philip // 1 thread

    Sunday 26th of September 10.15pm I was cycling from Cambridge North to Histon.  I collided with a fence immediately after exiting the A14 tunnel and sustained a dislocated shoulder along with other injuries.

    There is definitely a hazard here because 

    1) the busway and tunnel from Cambridge North are brightly lit.  The busway after the tunnel towards Histon is unlit.  

    2) about 30m after the tunnel the width of the busway tarmac surface suddenly reduces due to the introduction of the gravel strip (approx 1m wide).  There is also a fence near the start of the gravel strip (I assume for the small animal tunnel)..

    I cycled through the tunnel and noticed a cyclist coming in the opposite direction (without lights), so I took avoiding action by moving to the left.  I may have then glanced at my mobile phone on my handlebars.  When I looked up I saw the fence in my headlight.  I then hit or clipped the fence.
