i/n BREAKING: Wandsworth Council @wandbc recommends Queenstown Road #StreetSpace scheme be permanent, and for new consultation on upgrading Queens Circus to Chelsea Bridge, route of #Cycleway #CS8

Big support for permanent changes.

ii/ Queenstown Road papers at Wands BC Transport Ctte 16 June'21 democracy.wandsworth.gov.uk/ieListDocument…
See item 11 (currently last on agenda) with big PDFs.

Can't see timetable, tho, for the Queens Circus-Chelsea Bridge upgrade, but I'd expect after summer.
iii/ Interesting claim re Queens Circus to Chelsea Bridge "has the highest cycle flows in the borough" on #CS8.

Curious if this is highest on all roads or on Wands BC controlled? My perception is that cycle flows on #TfL controlled #CS7 thru Tooting and Balham might be higher.
iv/iv What's interesting is that Wands BC is recommending making Queenstown Road #StreetSpace #CS8 permanent.

Whilst the same Tory councillors have spent months seeking to rip out #TfL's #CS7 #StreetSpace scheme in Tooting & Balham, installed on the same principles.

v/v Cross-linking threads: if you want more #Wandsworth #StreetSpace action, the same Transport Ctte agenda has <whisper> a new #LowTrafficNeighbourhood.

1/n BREAKING: Wandsworth Council @wandbc recommends a <whisper> small #LowTrafficNeighbourhood south of St. George's Hospital, for 12 months.
> Residents want it
> Non-residents don't (boo!)

This re-installs (in effect) an #LTN ripped out last September.

2/ The new Wandsworth Council #LTN by St. George's hospital papers are in the Transport Ctte papers for 16 June 2021 democracy.wandsworth.gov.uk/ieListDocument…
Item 4 "Maybury Street" democracy.wandsworth.gov.uk/documents/s841…

#DoNotCallItAnLTN #ItMightUpsetPeople
3/ Re the new #WandsBC #Maybury #LTN .. the residents want it ... the non-residents don't.

What's interesting to me is that the #OneNotVeryLocalBullshitAntiLTNGroups couldn't rustle up more than few dozen objections ... I thought they had "thousands" of supporters?

@RBKC has published the papers for the 17 March Leadership Team agenda rbkc.gov.uk/committees/Mee…
Main report rbkc.gov.uk/committees/Doc… has 4 options

Appendix explains why alternative routes won't work. ImageImage
ii/ the @RBKC #KensingtonHighStreet paper includes this nonsense map about residents being with 400m of a cycle route.

iii/ re @RBKC #KensingtonHighStreet 's 400m of a cycle route.

Dabs of paint on back streets *does not deliver* the @MayorofLondon 's transport strategy, where the objective is 400m of a HIGH QUALITY cycle route. Image

Siri, show me a really shite astroturfing campaign!


*None* of the 196 followed/ 66 followers seem to have any relationship with the NHS .... just the usual "OneBullshit" groups and cabbies. Image
And what does the astroturf fake NHS anti-LTN campaign choose to follow?
Alongside the usual cabbies, OneBullshit groups and mad Tory cllrs, it follows a UKIP David Kurten anti-LTN campaign, also set up this week.
