Westminster City Council is undertaking a formal ('Regulation 19') consultation on its City Plan 2019-2040 (its Local Plan).
Shortened description from TfL webpage https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/edgware-road-junction/:
"We would like to know your views on proposals for the junction of Edgware Road and Harrow Road in the Paddington/Marylebone area.
Our Safer Junctions programme is reducing road danger at some of the most hazardous junctions in London. These junctions have high collision rates for vulnerable road users, including people walking and cycling. This programme directly contributes to our Vision Zero target to stop people from dying and being seriously injured on London’s road network by 2041.
The objectives of the Safer Junction programme are to:
- Reduce road danger and help eliminate Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI) collisions
- Help create streets where people feel safe to walk, cycle and use public transport
- Make hostile junctions more welcoming and less dominated by motor vehicles, demonstrating the Healthy Streets Approach
Why we are consulting
In the last three years there were 29 personal injury collisions, of which five resulted in serious injuries (17.2%).
A number of issues have been identified with the current junction layout:
- Pedestrians not using designated crossing points
- Existing pedestrian islands are narrow
- There is a lack of cycle facilities, especially southbound where the road layout is not cycle friendly
We would like your views on the following proposals which aim to reduce the above issues.
Applies to the whole junction
- Introduce a 20mph speed limit across the junction
- Widen all pedestrian crossings to make for a more comfortable and safer crossing
North of the flyover
- Ban left turn from Harrow Road into Edgware Road northbound
- Build out northwest corner to remove slip road and provide a better pedestrian environment
- Convert staggered crossing to straight across crossing to create better and safer routes to and from Edgware Road Bakerloo line station
- Make Bell Street no exit onto Edgware Road
- Change current three lane road layout to two traffic lanes and a cycle lane through the junction
- Widen southbound bus lane to 4.5m as it passes the bus stop
- Install cyclist early start signal on southbound Edgware Road
South of the flyover
- Convert the short section of Edgware Road northbound bus lane beneath the flyover, into cycle lane
- Install a cyclist early start signal at the junction heading northbound on Edgware Road
- On Harrow Road westbound reduce the road width to two lanes by building out the footway on the southwest corner, to provide a better pedestrian environment
- Reduce the width of the westbound slip road from Marylebone Road to one 4.5m lane by building out the footway on the southeast corner of the junction to provide better pedestrian environment
- Remove the guardrail and narrow the pedestrian island of the pedestrian crossing to the south of the flyover to allow for an 8.0m width on the southbound Edgware Road to prevent traffic merging with cyclists
Additional proposals for the area around the junction
These proposals are not part of the Safer Junction improvements. However, opportunities have been identified to improve air quality and priority space for buses in the area and we would like to know your views on these additional proposals.
Improving the road layout for northbound buses
Just north of the Edgware Road/Harrow Road Junction the road narrows and creates a bottleneck for traffic.
Changing the footpath layout here allows for the bus lane to be extended north of Newcastle Place, removing the bottleneck for northbound buses."
Westminster Cycling Campaign will be preparing and submitting a response to this consultation, and we will be grateful for any comments you provide. TfL usually describes responses in quantitative terms, e.g. 'XX% of reponses supported or strongly supported the proposals', so we therefore encourage you to submit your own response too.
We want your views on our proposals to make the streets we manage in central London 20mph by 2020 and the associated measures.
Last year, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), we published the Vision Zero Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out our ambition to eliminate death and serious injury from London’s transport network by 2041.
It details our plans to reduce road danger, including proposals to implement a 20mph speed limit on the roads we operate and manage in central London.
We’ve been working to determine the most effective way of implementing the new speed limits and are now ready to share our plans with you.
We’ve provided more information about our proposals on this page and would like your feedback before we progress this important safety programme.
The Royal Park says:
"The Royal Parks is embarking on an exciting and ambitious journey to develop a Movement Strategy that will influence movement and transportation throughout our parks and London.
What is the Movement Strategy?
The Movement Strategy will set a long-term vision for how park visitors will move within, access and subsequently experience the parks.
The strategy will include a comprehensive exploration of all movement and access related issues and opportunities that are relevant to the parks both now and into the foreseeable future.
This will include (but is not limited to) increasing safety for all park users, reducing the impact of vehicle-based traffic and reducing conflict between different modes.
How will it be developed?
To develop the strategy, we will utilise an evidence-based approach to explore all current and future movement opportunities. Input from key stakeholders, including the general public, will be a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.
Engagement Phase One – Now Open.
We are seeking input from key partners including the general public, Transport for London, neighbouring boroughs and all interested parties. This input is a critical component in exploring possibilities, conflicts and issues that will inform the creation of the strategy.This discussion paper sets out the draft aim and principles for our Movement Strategy. These summarise our aspirations and provide the basis for developing a series of bold projects and proposals across all eight parks."
Camden Council has prepared a draft Vision and Urban Strategy for Holborn and they are running a public consultation open to local residents, businesses, workers, community groups, and everyone else who has an interest in the area. Their primary aim is to produce a Planning Strategy document to guide Camden's Planning Committee's decisions on construction projects in the area.
We intend to submit a response by the Cycling Campaign because it clearly interacts with and should complement the Holborn Liveable Neighbourhood Scheme for which funding of around £12m has been announced by TFL and Camden. The draft for the Vision and Urban Strategy references the Liveable Neighbourhood Scheme and outlines its main proposed actions including the proposed segregated cycle tracks on New Oxford Street and Theobolds Road, so there is no reason to fear a conflict. But the responses to this consultation may have some implications for the LN, so we should respond stating our priorities.
Both schemes propose the removal of the Holborn gyratory and the closure of its Procter Street arm creating a traffic free space there instead.
We want your views on our proposals to transform roads in west London through four connected neighbourhood improvement schemes between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate.
The proposals are an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy. The proposals are guided by the Mayor's Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant. The proposals are also an important part of the Mayor's Walking and Cycling Action Plans. These complementary plans set out how we and London boroughs will work to increase the number of people walking and cycling, helping to address poor air quality and congestion, while improving infrastructure to make walking and cycling even easier, safer and more accessible for everyone.
These proposals would provide benefits for road users and communities in these areas, making it easier to cross busy roads, removing through traffic on some residential roads and offering a segregated space for people to cycle in west London. They would form part of London’s emerging cycling network and create a more appealing street environment for everyone to enjoy.
The proposals include:
The proposed changes presented in this consultation are not final. We welcome your views on our proposals and your feedback will inform how we progress the schemes.
Pembridge Square to Meanwhile Gardens Cycle Route Consultation
The Council wants to create high quality cycle routes for people who have considered cycling, but been put off by the idea of sharing busy roads with lorries and buses. We hope that many existing cyclists will also appreciate being able to use clear, direct routes along quiet side streets.
We are consulting on a new cycle route, linking the existing cycle route known as Quietway 2 in Notting Hill to the route along the Grand Union Canal. It begins at Pembridge Square, crosses Pembridge Villas/Pembridge Road and runs along Pembridge Crescent, Denbigh Road, Colville Road, Colville Gardens, Clydesdale Road, All Saints Rd, Tavistock Crescent, passes under the Westway then along Acklam Road, St Ervan’s Road, Golborne Road and in to Meanwhile Gardens where cyclists can connect to the existing cycle route along the canal towpath. In general, the measures that we are proposing are designed to slow down traffic, or to reduce the risk of conflict at junctions.
We are asking what you think of our proposals regarding the new cycle route. Please read the following information carefully before filling in the survey no later than 29 March 2019. For further information, please contact email@example.com or call 020 7361 3766.
On the southern section of Pembridge Square, we are proposing three sinusoidal humps to reduce traffic speeds. Sinusoidal humps are designed so that when driving or cycling over them at lower speeds, they are more comfortable to drive over than traditional humps, but if travelling at an inappropriate speed, they cause a notable ‘bump’, encouraging slower speeds. We know that some people are concerned that road humps contribute to poor air quality, when they lead to drivers braking and accelerating hard. We have designed the proposals in line with government guidance on the correct spacing between the humps to avoid hard braking and acceleration. We have recently introduced sinusoidal humps in St James’s Gardens and we also use them when we resurface roads with traditional humps – for example, in Abbotsbury Road near Holland Park.
To the western end of Pembridge Square, where there is a very large expanse of asphalt, we are proposing a new island with planting, and clearer road markings to clarify how vehicles should navigate this section of the square.
To allow less confident cyclists to cross Pembridge Villas/Pembridge Road, we are proposing to convert the existing pedestrian crossing to a parallel crossing. Parallel crossings combine a pedestrian zebra with a crossing for people travelling by bicycle, so that people attempting to cross on bikes enjoy the same priority as pedestrians. We have installed similar crossings with success on North Pole Road and King’s Road.
The proposed design also includes widening the pavements on either side of this proposed crossing to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as reducing the crossing distance. Raising the level of the carriageway on the two side roads to pavement level at the junction with Pembridge Road, Pembridge Square and Pembridge Crescent would also help to discourage high speeds and provide a more comfortable crossing for pedestrians.
On Westbourne Grove, we propose moving the bus stop road markings slightly further away from the junction with Denbigh Road. This will involve the loss of one parking space, but would allow greater visibility of oncoming traffic for all road users exiting Denbigh Road. Introducing double yellow lines around this junction would further increase visibility for all road users by discouraging inappropriate parking. We also propose to re-work the pedestrian crossing so that it better aligns with the carriageway of Colville Road.
Westminster City Council is undertaking a public consultation on 19 proposed new, secure cycle parking hangars throughout the borough, plus the relocation of the 2 existing hangars on Ilbert Street.
Camden’s Clean Air Action Plan has been produced as part of our duty to London Local Air Quality Management. It outlines the action we will take to improve air quality in Camden between 2019 and 2022.

Westminster's City Council's Strand/Aldwych Project
The Mayor of London published his Transport Strategy (MTS) in March 2018. The aim is for 80 per cent of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041 (compared with 63 per cent in 2015).
Our Third LIP sets out how we plan to implement the MTS locally as well as our other local transport-related priorities. LIPs are statutory documents and all London boroughs must prepare and submit their LIPs to Transport for London (TfL) for Mayor of London approval. See the MTS on the London.gov website.
There are four main elements of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's LIP:
To help shape the themes of our LIP we ran an online map-based ‘Commonplace’ survey during the summer of 2018, inviting people to tell us the kind of transport improvements they would like to see in their local area. See the online map.
407 people responded to the question ‘What is your biggest concern about getting around on Kensington and Chelsea's streets? Amongst all respondents the top five concerns in descending order were:
Amongst those who stated that they lived in the borough the top five concerns were:
We welcome your views on our draft LIP and the Environmental Report. If you have any comments please complete the survey online or Alternatively you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them by post to:
Westminster City Council is consulting on its Local Implementation Plan 3 (LIP3) Delivery Plan, through which the Council applies to TfL for funding for the period 2019/20 to 2021/22 to implement transport improvements that accord with the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
Statutory and public consultation on their draft documents is a requirement for Boroughs preparing their Local Implementation Plans. The draft London Borough of Brent Local Implementation Transport Plan (LIP3) sets out how the Borough Council proposes to implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy at a local level in Brent. The plan uses the Borough’s Long Term Transport Strategy objectives and sets out how the future of transport for Brent will be provided up to 2041. It proposes a three-year programme of investment for the period 2019/20 - 2021/22. Under the Mayor’s Transport Strategy a further three year programme will be consulted on in the future. The full draft plan is available in the document section below. We would welcome your views on the draft LIP3 using this online questionnaire.
"As part of the Marylebone Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN), Westminster City Council is proposing to introduce a number of new measures around Marylebone High Street and Paddington Street. These interventions will sit alongside the behaviour change measures already undertaken as part of the LEN programme."
Details of these proposals are set out below, showing the existing and proposed arrangements, as well as information on the rationale. Once implemented, these proposals will be the first of their kind in Westminster. If you would like to comment on the proposals or have any questions, please email email@example.com by 11.59pm on 5th December 2018. Responses will be considered before proceeding with the next stages of design and implementation."
Westminster City Council is consulting on its City Plan for the period 2019-2040. This is the Council's local plan, which sets out local planning policies and identifies how land is used, determining what will be built where.
From TfL webpage https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/edgware-road/ :
"We are proposing changes to junctions along Edgware Road, between the Marylebone Flyover and Marble Arch, which will improve safety for pedestrians, and other road users.
Our proposals include:
- Creating new pedestrian crossings, with green and red man signals
- Adding count down timers to new and existing crossings
- Creating more space for pedestrians on the pavement
- Limiting speed for vehicles to 20 miles per hour
- Providing new Advanced Stop Lines (cycle boxes) for cyclists"
Westminster Council says:
The draft strategy sets out a series of ambitious, exciting and also deliverable recommendations to significantly improve the district as a whole, with 96 projects across 87 different streets and spaces. We’ve also identified nine zones that reflect varying character from Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road. The strategy was developed from previous consultation responses, proposed plans and a process of engagement in order to identify and understand concerns and ideas.
All of the proposals are our ideas as to what could be done to improve the area. Subject to the feedback we receive in the consultation, the council will then carry out the detailed technical work that would be needed to turn those preferred proposals into reality.
Camden Transport Strategy, 2019-2041
Camden is consulting on a new draft Transport Strategy.
This includes Camden's Draft Cycling Action Plan
Wandsworth Council is proposing a pedestrian and cycle bridge to
connect Westminster and the new neighbourhood emerging in Nine Elms
as well as the existing communities south of the river.
The connection will improve access to this new shopping, restaurant and
cultural district, as well as the new green spaces, thousands of jobs and
Northern Line stations.
Following consultation in 2017 on nine possible locations between
Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges we have now selected three location
options for further exploration.
We want to find out what you think about this new car free bridge so are
holding public exhibitions across Wandsworth, Westminster and Lambeth.
Join us to learn more about the proposal and help shape one of London’s
most exciting infrastructure projects. See the back of this leaflet for time
and location details.
You can also find out more and tell us your views online from Monday 5

Info from survey:
"The London Borough of Brent and Sustrans are working together to explore ways in which the Kilburn High Road and surrounding area shown could be improved. Together we want to better meet the needs of the community to make it a more desireable place to walk, cycle and enjoy being in.
London Borough of Brent and London Borough of Camden will submit a joint application to Transport for London's Liveable Neighbourhood programme in November 2018, which will incorporate suggestions made by the community."
Brent Cyclists are forming our own response, to be sent by end of October 2018.
What would you like to see improved in your local area?
In the coming months, we will be putting together our Local Implementation Plan for the Royal Borough – the document that will form our transport and highways delivery plan for the next three years. It will show how we plan to deliver the Mayor of London’s transport strategy – especially its idea of “healthy streets”, with better air quality and more people walking and cycling.
Adding your voice to our Commonplace consultation will help guide our aspirations and deliver improvements to your neighbourhood.
What are we doing already?
We are determined to continue to make the Royal Borough a brilliant place to live and work. In particular, we want to tackle the serious health problems caused by physical inactivity and air pollution, as well as improving the efficiency of our transport system as it faces the challenge of an ever-growing city. We are providing new cycle routes, improving pedestrian crossings, reducing traffic speeds, improving public places, and introducing more charging points for electric cars.
Share your ideas for changes – big and small – that would help more people to walk and cycle, improve conditions for bus passengers, make our roads safer and reduce pollution. Use our Commonplace consultation to drop a pin and tell us what your like or dislike about a street or place near you! You can also “like” comments made by other people. Spread the word – we want to hear from as many people as possible who live, work, or just travel through Kensington and Chelsea.
The deadline to comment on the Local Implementation Plan is Friday 7 September.
Consultation on a proposed Traffic Management Order as part of Westminster City Council's Local Safety Scheme for the Sutherland Avenue / Randolph Avenue junction and the adjacent roundabout
From the DfT:
As part of the Transport Investment Strategy, the government committed to creating a Major Road Network (MRN).
This consultation asks for views on:
how to define the MRN
the role that local, regional and national bodies will play in the MRN investment programme
which schemes will be eligible for MRN funding
A new MRN would help deliver the following objectives:
support economic growth and rebalancing
support housing delivery
support all road users
support the Strategic Road Network
The creation of an MRN will allow for dedicated funding from the National Roads Fund to be used to improve this middle tier of our busiest and most economically important local authority ‘A’ roads.
The consultation refers to a long-term aim to remove the Holborn gyratory within which there is very little provision for cycling.
In the meantime it proposes some long-awaited safety measures at the Vernon Place junctions and some mainly pedestrian improvements at the Holborn tube station junction.
