And the traffic is still terrible... Well done Wandsworth council.
Tooley street, cs4 is open apparently, might head down over the weekend to have a look.
Liverpool Road in Islington has wands installed to make a route from Tolpuddle to Madras place. Nice idea but with out filtering Madras place you often end up head on with rat runners skipping the lights at the top of Liverpool Rd. I presume this will be dealt with in future Islington LTNs.
An extreme response to LTNs! This person needs to watch Ogmios' School of Zen Motoring.
Absolute lunatics out there. No1 deserves this. This is an excellent thread on how to react to the anti-LTN loonies:
Englefield and Richmond Road is absolutely brilliant for cycling now.
Is anyone aware of anything that's been done to encourage cycling in Haringey during this spate of improving facilities? I've not seen anything near me (apart from making Endymion Road worse to cycle on) but my routes are fairly fixed.
One of the best demonstrations of the value of restricted car traffic I can think of is to get people to go to Richmond Park at the weekend. Go to the cars permitted section first, before going over to the car free section - ask them which they'd like to see more of.
Tweeted something and most of the replies have been positive!
Cabbie Twitter is too busy having a collective aneurysm about Uber getting its licence back
My local green party candidate talking against these measures in that article! Great times to live.
Chris Boardman always good:
^ thanks for sharing. Good luck to authorities sharing in the few millions that have finally been awarded after being promised back in February ish.
I think we will continue to see an increasing difference in those authorities that get things done, and those that still won't or don't. It will be interesting to see this play out across the wards and boroughs, and what it means, if anything, at the next election cycle.
Highbury West Scheme details has been published and it shows them cutting the route along Drayton park to cut the corner from Holloway Road to Seven Sisters. It's joined up with Highbury Fields to cut out through traffic from Balls Pond to North of The Arsenal Stadium.
Altogether that should lead to some significant re routing of traffic through Islington and Hackney to the East. It will be interesting to see the results, especially as I live just to the West of the schemes and therefore the knock on for traffic cutting through my part of the borough should be beneficial.
