  • Woolpack Junction at Tennyson Avenue / Gaywood Road

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    This junction is very important for desire lines to/from the College of West Anglia, but is largely bypassed by through cycle traffic (by some mix of NCN1, the cycle gate into King George V Avenue and routes through North End). It is very busy with motor traffic.

  • Austin Street / Railway Road junction

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    This junction is the north end of the rather cycle-hostile town centre primary road gyratory. It currently (2014) has dangerous narrow left kerb-side cycle lanes on some approaches, which is almost worse than nothing.

  • Gaywood Clock Junction

    Created by MJR // 0 threads

    This junction complex obstructs key desire lines between the Gayton Road cycle track, the shops and National 1. It also has acknowledged air quality problems. The design is a relic of 1980s car-based thinking which even shoved the historic clock to one side

    The suggested diversions for Gayton Road - National 1 cycle journeys are a long way round on inferior roads and tracks, plus they don't serve the shops.

    In 2014, Advanced Stop Lines are being added to two approaches to the Queen Mary Road junction, but they only have left-hand entry and crush barriers remain on most corners. (County drawing ref PJ1074-TS-001A)

    This area is crying out for a redesign that discourages through motor traffic and gives more protected space for cycling and walking.

  • London Road / Hospital Walk Junction Signals Upgrade

    Created by MJR // 1 thread

    Discovered that this junction is "due for upgrade in the 2014/15 financial year. The budget for the traffic signal upgrade programme is essentially aimed at a like for like replacement scheme with new equipment. However we try to accommodate low cost improvements that can be implemented at the same time. ... There is scope to implement an advanced cycle stop line on Hospital Walk, although there would not be sufficient carriageway width for a lead in lane."

    This is one possible way to improve westbound connectivity from the Walks and Chase through Millfleet to the town centre and southbound Route 1. The increased distance (compared to Broad Walk) is offset by light traffic, a 20mph zone and a potentially easier crossing - but at the moment, the lights make bikes exiting Hospital Walk wait a long time and then it lets hardly any out before turning red again.
