Section 1- Westbourne Terrace

Closed 20 Mar 2016

Opened 8 Feb 2016

Overview

What are we proposing?

  • Segregated cycle tracks replace one traffic lane in each direction on Westbourne Terrace
  • Advanced Stop Line at the junction of Westbourne Terrace and Cleveland Terrace; widened pedestrian footway
  • Changes to traffic lane assignment on Westbourne Terrace
  • Double yellow lines replace single yellow lines on Westbourne Terrace Removal of one resident parking space on Cleveland Terrace
  • New pedestrian crossings on all arms of the junction of Westbourne Terrace and Cleveland Terrace

 

Segregated cycle tracks replace one traffic lane in each direction on Westbourne Terrace

  • The new cycle tracks would be at carriageway level, and approximately 2.0 metres wide
  • The tracks would replace one traffic lane in each direction on Westbourne Terrace
  • The segregating kerb would be 0.5m  wide
  • No coloured surfacing would be used
  • At the junctions of Westbourne Terrace with Craven Road, Cleveland Terrace and Bishop’s Bridge Road, cyclists would merge with traffic turning left, before returning to the segregated cycle track once they have passed through the junction
  • The existing lighting on Westbourne Terrace would be assessed, and brought up to British Standards if required

Advanced Stop Line at the junction of Westbourne Terrace and Cleveland Terrace; widened pedestrian footway

  • A new 5 metre Advanced Stop Line for cyclists would be introduced  on Cleveland Terrace, at the junction with Westbourne Terrace
  • We would widen the footway at the junction of Cleveland Terrace
  • One resident parking space on Cleveland Terrace would be removed. This would create space for the widened footway alongside the new Advanced Stop Line


Changes to traffic lane assignment on Westbourne Terrace

  • At the southbound approach to Craven Road on Westbourne Terrace, two traffic lanes would be retained. Vehicles (except cyclists) would only be permitted to turn left in the nearside lane, and vehicles in the offside lane would only be permitted to continue ahead. 
  • Similarly, at the northbound approach to Cleveland Terrace on Westbourne Terrace, two traffic lanes would be retained. Vehicles (except cyclists) would only be permitted to turn left from the nearside lane, and vehicles in the offside lane would only be permitted to continue ahead


Double yellow lines replace single yellow lines on Westbourne Terrace

  • Double yellow lines with double blips would be extended along Westbourne Terrace, from the junction with Craven Road to Westbourne Bridge. This would ensure parking or loading vehicles do not block traffic.
  • No parking and loading would be permitted at any time close to the junction on the northern side of Cleveland Terrace


New pedestrian crossings on all arms of the junction of Westbourne Terrace and Cleveland Terrace

  • New 2.8m signalised pedestrian crossings would be introduced on all arms of the junction of Westbourne Terrace and Cleveland Terrace

 

Traffic impacts of these proposals

Our latest analysis shows that these proposals would change journey times for general traffic and some bus routes. We anticipate a significant change for some journeys through the scheme area. Some journeys for general traffic would get longer at the busiest times of day and some would get shorter. Bus journeys along Wood Lane and through the Paddington area would be unaffected in the morning peak, with some journeys becoming longer and some shorter in the evening peak.

Complementary measures

The predicted traffic impacts do not take account of a range of additional complementary measures that would have beneficial impacts on journey times for buses and general traffic. This includes investing in schemes to address bus delays and give priority to buses at certain pinchpoints and providing road users with comprehensive and specific travel advice to help them avoid busy times and locations. We will continue to work with freight and servicing companies to support them to plan their activity to avoid the busiest times and locations. Through the creation of the new Roads and Transport Policing Command, we will target enforcement at the busiest locations and known hot spots to reduce delays and keep traffic moving.
