152604Photo #152604On E-Scooters:
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
Greenpeace agree with this idea.
For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.
This Solution does not apply to High Streets and yes more Zebra Crossings will be needed to be installed on busier Roads, making those Roads, ‘Semi Pedestrianized’. Some Pavements will have to be Green and Blue, but most are wide enough, with Pedestrians able to cross the Road to a complete Green Pavement via the new Zebra Crossings. Pedestrians safety, E-Scooter Safety ‘must’ come first, ahead of the ‘Car’.
The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
I have had a great agreeable response; please ask your friends and public for their opinion.

148328Photo #148328Bold suggestion for segregating the cycleway: pick one side of the bridge to have a (wider?) pavement and then a bi-directional cycleway. Shift traffic lanes across, probably make the pavement on the other side narrower. Having a bi-directional cycleway should make it possible to overtake other cyclists without coming into conflict with motor traffic.

This will need improvements at both ends to ensure that cyclists (and pedestrians) can easily get in all directions they might want to, but quite frankly that needs to happen anyway.

136778Photo #136778The road narrows and there is on-road parking on on side. Busses swing round the corner and squeeze through the narrow gap. As a consequence drivers almost always stop in the (discretionary) cycle lane right up against the kerb, while waiting for traffic lights. If cyclist follow the rules it will take several minutes to get to the front of the traffic queue, while being squeezed in by drivers. The pavement is well-used by pedestrians, so cycling on the pavement is not appreciated. Possible solutions: (a) remove on-street parking and make cycle lane compulsory (b) widen pavement in places and make dual-use (c) (more strategic) create off-road cycle path connecting hospital with Shirley, perhaps linking Chalybeate Close via the Greenway to St James Park RoadCycleway:

127337Photo #127337Build segregated cycle paths on Banister Road. Currently, especially in the bend, motor vehicles do not leave enough space for cyclists, even though the road is wide enough. Physical barriers are therefore necessary to guarantee cyclist safety.

127334Photo #127334Build segregated cycle paths on London Road, continued from the Avenue. Currently, crossing motor traffic (Carlton & Bellevue Roads), as well as parked cars pose a serious hazard.

127329Photo #127329Make Banister Road one-way (south-westbound). Motor traffic must then turn west onto Archers Road, or continue south towards Bedford place. Eastbound traffic from Archers Road will be able to continue and turn north onto the Avenue. This simplifies traffic light rotations on the Banister Road/Archers Road and Banister Road/Avenue junctions, and frees up additional space for pavements and cycle paths.
