Contraflow cycle lane, South Street, Tarring

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2012-11-30 16:01

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

A contraflow cycle lane was originally proposed for this street when it was originally made one-way. But it was never implemented.

A contraflow lane here would enable southbound cyclists to avoid three mini-roundabout junctions, a major safety improvement and a more direct route for cyclists too.

Cycle path across Tarring park

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2012-11-30 15:40

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

It would be worth investigating a shared use path through the park between South Street Tarring and Church Road. The northern side currently has two tarmac routes through. This would then create a very low traffic route connecting St. Lawrence Avenue through to the residential roads west of the A2031 including Princess Avenue.

This is already being used by at least one cyclist, according to Google: http://goo.gl/maps/J9hQh

Add gaps in central reservation of Sea Lane

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2012-11-30 15:33

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

Gap in central reservation of Sea Lane to enable cyclists to turn right out of Nutley Drive to go north on Sea Lane – if you look here: http://goo.gl/maps/QCusd (towards the red letter box) you can see where pedestrians (and possibly cyclists have left their ‘desire line’. Weirdly there is a gap in the reservation just north of this junction – see here: http://goo.gl/maps/mkeeF, which then tempts cyclists to ride the short distance north up the wrong side of Sea Lane to get to this gap.

Safe crossing at Poling Corner

Submitted by Fonant on Mon, 2012-08-13 09:46

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

The official cycle route beside the A27 crosses the very-fast dual carriageway with no safety features or anything to make it easier to cross. You have to judge the speed of 70mph+ traffic in two lanes each way.

A bridge with ramps would be possible here, and would make this crossing much less of a death trap, and much more pleasant for people to use.

Cycle Route across Brooklands Park

Submitted by Fonant on Mon, 2012-08-13 09:30

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

There is an incomplete, but highly useful, route diagonally across Brooklands Park from the car park beside the go-kart circuit on the seafront to the Brooklands Cafe car park. Many people use this to avoid the busy Brooklands traffic lights, and the part of Western Road that has turning lorries.

It shouldn’t cost much to make this route sensible for cycling, and remove the NO CYCLING signs.

Courtlands Way a traffic free cycle route

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2010-12-24 10:25

Wish type(s): New infrastructure

Making Courtlands Way a traffic free cycle route. Currently it is a reasonably wide pedestrian twitten, but could become shared use/pedestrian priority route between Wallace Avenue and Sea Place, linking nicely to Brook Barn Way and on to Alinora Crescent.

This would allow cyclists travelling east<->west to avoid the rather-busy roundabouts at the south end of George V Avenue.

Fix mess at Brooklands Park traffic lights

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-09-22 15:30

Wish type(s): New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

The junction arrangement is a mess, and the pavement cycle route has a nasty slalom between posts, just where pedestrians stand when waiting to cross the road.

This urban dual carriageway is unnecessary (it’s single carriageway on the same road before and after) so there’s plenty of room to provide a decently-wide cycle route.

Relocate A27 crossing to North Lancing

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-09-22 15:19

Wish type(s): Long-term aim, New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

The current crossing is heavily used by parents, children, and local residents. But the pavements on either side get very crowded, and there is no legal facility for cyclists.

Moving the crossing to First Avenue, and making it a Toucan crossing, so bikes can use it too, would be most useful to re-connect North and South Lancing. At the same time the entrances to First Avenue from the A27 would be closed off: not a problem for motorists as there are alternative routes that aren’t much longer. Residents in First Avenue would see a drop in local traffic too.

Remove town centre dual carriageways

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-09-22 14:54

Wish type(s): Long-term aim, New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

Remove all town centre dual carriageways (A24 & North Street), narrowing them to wide single carriageway roads with segregated cycle paths, consistent pavements and planting (even additional parking if required as an incentive). This would negate the need for two stage pedestrian crossings and move the town centre away from car-centric. It would practically guarantee some shift to cycling and in some ways negate the vagueries of the Broadwater – Town Centre route (particularly for cyclists heading south where Upper High Street meets the dual carriageway of North Street).
