Segregated two-way cycle track replaces traffic lane

  • The cycle track would be between 3.5 and 4 metres wide (although it would narrow to 3 metres in two locations to make room for traffic signals at crossings)
  • The cycle track would be at footway level. A small ridge would separate the cycle track from the footway. There would be a 0.5 metre gap between the edge of the cycle track and the road
  • Blue cycle surfacing would be used
  • The vast majority of the existing single red lines on the south side of Harleyford Road would be retained, allowing off-peak parking (7pm-7am Mon-Sun). Parking would no longer be allowed between 7am – 7pm on Sundays
  • The existing single red  lines on the north side of Harleyford Road would be replaced by double red lines, meaning it would no longer be possible to park here at any time (currently permitted in the evenings and on Sundays)
  • Our scheme and network traffic impact analysis shows that the completed scheme would mean longer journeys at busy times for most motorists and bus passengers in the area. We would work to mitigate the impact as much as possible, including continuing to invest in our already-sophisticated traffic management systems, and looking to reduce delays to buses by improving journey times at other locations on the same routes.
