TFL are currently consulting on upgrading the Westminster Bridge Road
|Nice, but there are some major problems here|
Also, the cycle lanes TFL propose have wide sweeping corners for motor traffic to left hook cycles. The effects of these can be reduced through good design, but a two way track removes this conflict completely.
|Left hook magnet|
|Conflict removed completely|
The carriageway space here is extremely limited. The ideal solution would be to continue the two way track on the outside of the 'roundabout'. However, with the space, there was really 3 options
- Close the road to buses, and make it bike only
- Segregated facilities for one direction, no cycling in the other
- Shared bus and cycle lane, with contraflow cycle lane
|Not ideal, but I think the best solution here|
Please let me know your comments/criticisms etc regarding my version, it really helps!
