Come on @RBKC - you are a huge gap in London’s safer cycle network.

We can still see the shadow lines and bolt holes on Ken High St where the bike lane used to be.

Let’s work together to put in a safe route before anyone else gets hurt. t.co/yovbh9gxRk

Cycleway:

142524

Pedestrian & cycle crossing - timing needs to be changed to prioritise crossing the road. This is a 2-stage crossing and the wait is very long. The road is often empty due to lights at big junctions before and after this section and the long wait results in pedestrians/bikes crossing on red which could be dangerous. This is an important crossing of a very big road to link up residential and commercial areas.

Make Albert Bridge a pedestrian bridge. There are no buses that use the bridge, and the vast amount of traffic is from pedestrians and dog walkers, who currently have to step out into the road to avoid each other.

Temporary closure:

There are no pedestrian lights here, and constant traffic. Pedestrians have to cross 4-5 lanes of traffic without the time to do so. Highly dangerous.

Cycleway:

128928

This is a very busy road for cyclists but is very dangerous - all the way along the embankment from Chelsea bridge to cremorne road. It is a wide road often dual or 1.5 carriageway. Put in a curbed bi-directional cycle lane and you would transform the area for cycling. You would like the cycle superhighways in central London to west London and massively increase commenter cycling numbers. Transformational.

Holland Park Avenue is a dangerous and inhospitable place for vulnerable road users. It is essential to instal segregated cycle lanes and traffic calming measures to allow people to safely travel to work and school.

Cycleway:

Allow cyclists in Holland Park. Holland park is a North-South feature where cycling is forbidden (but all sorts of cars and vans may drive in for different reasons). It blocks any route East-West that tries to avoid the dangerous roads that lack cycling facilities (like High Street Kensington to the South).
