Preliminary Ward Asks

With the delightful feedback that we’ve had on the LCC 2014 elections survey, we’ve come up with our specific asks per electoral ward in K&C. For a wonderful representation of these on a map and zoom in to K&C. It’s been pretty hard to narrow down to one specific ask, but we think that this is the best single pressure point that all road users deserve in the borough.

More details to follow over the coming months but do you agree? Also, if you do and want to take a picture, please do put it in the comments!

Ward Name Ward Ask Theme Specifc Ward Ask 
Abingdon Liveable Town Centres Reduction of high vplume of traffic and more relaxed streets for all users particularily on Wrights Lane and Marloes Rd
Brompton & ‘Hans Town Liveable Town Centres Surrounding South Kensington Tube, current links (to exhibition road especially) are congested and not inviting
Campden Protected Space for Cycling CS9 is a crucial part of allowing kensginton and chelsea to have real permeability and stop it being a dead end for cycle routes and safety
Colville Protected Space for Cycling Ladbroke grove is in need of a redesign, current routes like 45 are not used as they do not allow high volumes and have poor filtering into smaller side roads. Ladbroke drove will allow passage and stop this area being cut off by hostile roads
Courtfield Safe Routes to Schools Improve condition and infrastructure of old brompton road in order to make schools safer to travel to and from, as well as improving the Evelyn Gardens contra-flow for the same reason
Cremorne Protected Space for Cycling Need to link up to cycle superhighway 2, links to bridges: thames bridges protected spaces especially need to have either Albert Bridge or Battersea bridge
Earl’s Court Protected Space for Cycling Plan safety of HGVs access to Earls court rebuild to crossrail levels or better and a lasting legacy of safely protected routes in this area
Golborne Protected Space for Cycling Ladbroke grove is in need of a redesign, current routes like 45 are not used as they do not allow high volumes and have poor filtering into smaller side roads. Ladbroke drove will allow passage and stop this area being cut off by hostile roads
Holland Greenways Making holland park cycle friendly will make the london grid useful and accesible as a quietway
Norland/ Notting Dale Liveable Town Centres In order to link up with cycle cross rail and make it effective as well enhancing permeability/links for schools inside and outside of this ward
Notting Barns/ St Helen’s 20 mph Discourage and reduce high speed traffic through latimer road will create a safer and more pleasant environment
Pembridge Protected Space for Cycling Providing clear space through notting hill gate, review car parking heading westbound as this forces cyclists into traffic
Queen’s Gate Liveable Town Centres Busiest part of route from High Street Kensington and Kensington Rd, and should be made more accessible for the community
Redcliffe Safe Routes to Schools In partiular the junction of old brompton rd and bolton gardens is very tight and there are several problems with HGVs and children crossing for school
Royal Hospital Liveable Town Centres Sloane Square needs to be accessible as the town centre that it is, currently inhospitable to all road users
St Charles Areas Without Through Motor Traffic Take community-centric approach to streets, in particular brewster gardens to dalgrno gardens in order to truly calm streets
Stanley Areas Without Through Motor Traffic Dovehouse Street and cale street have high flow through, suggest removal of one way for cyclists on both, create car free zone for safety of patients
