152743Photo #152743This road is the entrance for the Bethlem Royal hospital. Cycling in this area is unpleasant. Especially Monks Orchard Road.

There is space here to install a separate cycle lane. Some of the existing pavement could be used for a two way cycle lane.

The road could also be reduced to 20mph. Residents appear to support this idea from informal conversations.

152597Photo #152597On E-Scooters:
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
Greenpeace agree with this idea.
For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.
This Solution does not apply to High Streets and yes more Zebra Crossings will be needed to be installed on busier Roads, making those Roads, ‘Semi Pedestrianized’. Some Pavements will have to be Green and Blue, but most are wide enough, with Pedestrians able to cross the Road to a complete Green Pavement via the new Zebra Crossings. Pedestrians safety, E-Scooter Safety ‘must’ come first, ahead of the ‘Car’.
The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
I have had a great agreeable response; please ask your friends and public for their opinion.

142615Photo #142615The combination of narrow road and narrow pavement makes the stretch under the railway bridge dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike.

The pavement needs improving and if it’s not possible to widen the road then traffic calming measures need to be put in place.

Additionally, despite the fact the pavement reduces to just one side of the road, there is no safe crossing point. This needs to be added.

142395Photo #142395Pavement needs widening to give more space for social distancing when waiting to cross and slow traffic turinng into Farnaby Rd by making the mouth of it narrower. Extra pavement space would also give a good location for a controlled (button) crossing for the school. Ideally a 20mph school zone too to make it safer for families crossing Beckenham Lane or Farnaby Road near the school.
There is currently no safe or efficient way to cross to get to Valley school (or the park, shops or station) near the school and families end up bunched up on narrow pavements either side or on tiny traffic island in the middle unable to social distance or cross safely, while cars speed in one lane and idle their engines in congestion in the other.
