Marksbury Avenue – Let’s just do the A316 properly, shall we?

This is a brief response to the Marksbury Avenue consultation.
Please add your response here

Dear TfL,

In response to your consultation on the changes to the A316 crossing opposite Marksbury Avenue, Richmond Cycling would suggest that this is not a very good use of time or money.

The proposed changes will make virtually no difference to cycling and walking at the junction, and still fail to provide a pleasant solution for anyone seeking to cross the road.

Instead of more piecemeal proposals like this, we’d like to see the Elsinore Way proposal built as soon as possible, and we’d like to see a plan from TfL which covers fixing the whole of the A316, rather than fixing bits and pieces without addressing the core issues the road has for walking and cycling.

Sincerely,

Richmond Cycling Campaign.

  1. Wholeheartedly agree -they should fix a) manor circus and b) richmond circus (that shared space with peds is ridiculous) and then remove all those ‘dismount’ signs, starting with the A316 North side.

  2. Here’s my response. Overall, why not but why?

    I’m not sure what you’re trying to fix here? This crossing isn’t ideally designed, but then it’s the case with most. Just put a sign that it’s OK to use with cycles and voila. Cost would be a few hundred pounds.

    Rather, you should fix the rest of the A316:
    a) Manor Circus which is a discontinuity in the current cycle path
    b) Richmond Circus (that shared space with peds is ridiculous)
    c) remove all those ‘dismount’ signs, starting with the A316 North side
    d) make all junctions like the planned Elsinore way (when’s coming BTW?)
