Results Updated 16 Nov 2017

From 14 December 2015 to 8 February 2016, we consulted on proposed changes to the junction of St John’s Wood Road, Northwick Terrace and Hamilton Terrace.

Having considered the feedback received during consultation, it is clear there were significant concerns over specific aspects of the design. We have decided to put the scheme on hold until agreement can be reached on a workable design between ourselves and Westminster City Council to achieve the best possible results. We will continue discussions both on this junction and on proposals for Quietway 16 as a whole.

We would like your views on proposed changes to the junctions of St. John’s Wood Road, Hamilton Terrace and Northwick Terrace. The proposals are part of our Quietways programme - a London-wide network of high-quality, well-signed cycle routes predominately using back streets with lower traffic flows.  

This junction forms part of the Camden Town to Little Venice Quietway. The City of Westminster consulted on other parts of this route in July 2015.

What are we proposing?

Our proposals aim to improve safety for cyclists and cater to the predicted increase of cyclists along this route. These proposals would also seek to maintain and improve safety provisions for pedestrians at these junctions.

At construction stage the junction would also be resurfaced.

The drawing below shows the proposals for this junction. Note: the numbered descriptions below correspond with the numbered labels on the drawing.

Hamilton Terrace

  1. New ‘feeder’ cycle lane to guide cyclists into the right position to access the crossing at the junction with St. John’s Wood Road. The cycle lane would also alert motorists of cyclists using Quietway facilities.
  2. Proposed expansion of refuge island to enhance protection and space for cyclists waiting to cross Hamilton Terrace, and to have safer access to the Quietway across St. John’s Wood Road.

St. John’s Wood Road

  1. Proposed parallel zebra crossing to provide a crossing point for cyclists and pedestrians. 
  2. Shared use footway to allow cyclists to continue on to the Quietway on Northwick Terrace without entering the regular flow of traffic on St. John’s Wood Road. The wide, dual-use pavement would be marked by signage at entrance and exit.

Northwick Terrace

  1. Pedestrian crossing distance shortened and raised to footway level would reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians and cyclists, improving safety for both whilst calming traffic.
