45048Photo #45048There is a cycle lane here, but it's narrow and unsegregated. More importantly, it's frequently interrupted by parking spaces, mainly for coaches but also for other vehicles. This means that cyclists often have to 'take the lane' on a 3-lane high speed road to get round parked vehicles, which is clearly unsatisfactory. Also, the buses have the same issues with blind spots as HGVs, so having them in close proximity to bikes is inherently dangerous. If you could move the parking (especially the bus parking) and segregate the cycle lane, this would be a great place for a Dutch-style cycle route which would be a really quick and direct way across central London.Dutch-style cycleway:

Problem
dutchcycleways
43841Photo #43841Portland Place northbound is not divided into lanes, and the width encourages cars to form two lanes of traffic. This makes life quite dangerous for cyclists. Often the cars form two lanes at red lights, but on the other side of the crossing, parked cars at the side of the road force cyclists out in front of one of these lanes of traffic - which means that drivers have to be alert. This should be ONE lane clearly marked, one bike lane clearly marked, one parking lane. Simple.Dutch-style cycleway:

43812Photo #43812Cycling lanes should be physically separate not just from cars, but from pedestrians as well. On the West Carriage Drive cyclists and pedestrians are separated by a white line. This is not good enough. Pedestrians are constantly straying in front of cyclists. I use the road here - it's safer and less hassle, as in any case the traffic moves quite slowly and is well controlled in this place.Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem

43811Photo #43811Garrick Street has recently been re-done, but there's a problem. When you're coming from the south to the pedestrian crossing in front of Tesco's, the street narrows suddenly. Drivers, especially taxis, pay no attention to the cyclists who have to move into their lane. This is a case of dangerous road layout - when that road narrowing was planned, no one thought of cyclists.Dutch-style cycleway:

43804Photo #43804When the northbound traffic from Arundel street gets a green light to turn left into Aldwych, the southbound Aldwych traffic gets green as well! Which means that cyclists wishing to cross over to the right-hand lane around the church (the lane closer to Bush House) will have to weave between these two (insanely fast-moving) streams of traffic!Dutch-style cycleway:

43681Photo #43681The area around Victoria Station. Forget going Dutch, just improve it up to the standards of Waterloo. After leaving St James Park, things are grim - and it can take 10 minutes.

It doesn't matter if you're approaching from north south east or west, as you get near so the traffic conditions deteriorate.Dutch-style cycleway:

42670Photo #42670The south junction of Regent Street with Picadilly. This junction used to be much safer as the left hand lane was a bus lane. Any bus in that lane could not physically go straight on. Now the lane is a left turn only lane but buses in that lane routinely travel straight on to Regent Street. There is no wayof knowing if the bus to your left is actually going left or planning to push you out of the way from the inside if you are positioned, correctly, in the left-most straight on lane. I've experienced some frightening and aggressive bus driving at this junction.Dutch-style cycleway:

Instead there is an intermittent very poor painted cycle lane that disappears whenever there is car parking or a junction (unbelievably, north of Horse Guards Avenue the painted lane is blocked by a hire bike docking station). In parts this road is 5 lanes wide with a central reservation and very wide pavements. In 2008 Boris Johnson said it was an 'utter disgrace' that there was no cycle lane on the Embankment...Dutch-style cycleway:

42638Photo #42638The north end of Waterloo Bridge is dreadful, as the road narrows and buses not only stop on the nearside but some then have to pull out and change to the right hand lane. The very narrow bike channel between walls of buses and vans is extremely dangerous.Dutch-style cycleway:

42576Photo #42576I am an enthusiastic cyclist but wouldn't dream of trying to navigate my way around the Aldwych on a bike: far too many drivers going too fast without knowing where they are meant to be, and switching lanes at the last minute.

42571Photo #42571Parliament square and Whitehall needs a proper separate cycle lane. Unpleasant and dangerous at present. Traffic often very heavy and there is no space for cyclists.

42568Photo #42568Coming from Buckingham Palace Road and going round the gyratory to Birdcage Walk is difficult enough for cars, let alone cyclists. And then you get the added confusion as you have to merge again with traffic coming from the north.

42453Photo #42453It's immensely disappointing that the new traffic system in the Strand between King's College and the mad Aldwich/Waterloo Bridge junction rode roughshod over the needs of cyclists.

42448Photo #42448If you are cycling from Victoria towards Hyde Park, you are mixed up with cars all the way up Grosvenor Place, many of whom are turning left into Knightsbridge. There is no protection at all for cyclists who want to continue into the park until you reach the controlled crossing of the eastbound lane of Knightsbridge. There needs to be a cycle lane and a protected way for cyclists to cross the westbound Knightsbridge junction.Dutch-style cycleway:

42351Photo #42351So, so difficult to choose a single location in London but Parliament Sq as a whole would be a great place to start. Trafalgar Sq is far from perfect but greatly improved since it is no longer such a mad gyratory. Let's see something even better for Parliament Sq and the approach to Westminster Bridge! Most routes through the Sq involve crossing multiple lanes of traffic, often more than once. There are some great routes through the parks once onto Horse Guards, or even Millbank, Whitehall and Westminster Bridge but I’ll bet the prospect of negotiating Parliament Sq buts many people off making the most of them. I look forward to getting my adrenaline fix somewhere else.Dutch-style cycleway:

42303Photo #42303Oxford Street generally is a pretty awkward place for pedestrians, bikes and motor vehicles. I'm no town planner, but an ideal to aim for would be pedestrians and cycles down Oxford Street itself, segregated so as to avoid shoppers strolling into the path of bikes, and improving an alternative route for traffic (including cycles who wanted to travel from a to b rather than just shop) east-west either north or south of Oxford Street. It would be a major project but would probably improve the area for everyone.Dutch-style cycleway:

42223Photo #42223the new cycle lanes make a marked improvment to cycling on the embankment since they have been there. However - the problem is that there are bus stops all along - and these great big juggernaughts ploughing into the cycle lanes forces the cyclist to engage in the right lane - not to mention being almost taken out. Should there be bus stops on a busy road like this - it is mad! perhaps one - but not several along the same stretch of road,...Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42222Photo #42222These traffic lights that are relatively new are fine. The cycle line approaching them seems to disappear and re-appear on either side of them. The result of this is, cars staying in their lanes (rightly so) squash cyclists into the kerb. When these lights were installed there hasn't been much consideration for cyclists in a london park!Dutch-style cycleway:

42136Photo #42136Essential to campaign for cycling in Kensington Gardens. There is alas an anti-cycling lobby and Royal Parks are listening to them which is unreasonable - there are currently very few places where cycling is allowed in this huge central area and the anti-cyclists (selfish dog walkers and pedestrians/ so-called 'Friends of Hyde Pk & Kens Gdns') have even managed to lobby for fixed penalty notices against cyclists straying from the 3 cycle paths (what a waste of police resources). So please, please can we at least have a cycle path in the park parallel with the Bayswater Road, from the Italian fountains to the far west boundary of Kensington Gardens. (One of the objections is the hill down from Marlborough Gate on the north side of the fountains which could remain no-cycling). But best would be to be able to cycle on very path in Kensington Gardens, then cyclists would be spread out and we could coexist happily with everyone else who uses the park.Dutch-style cycleway:

42084Photo #42084Heading noth along Buckingham Palace Road alongside the Royal Mews. When attempting to turn right into Palace Street, the lights encourage cyclists to CROSS ONCOMING TRAFFIC - not only is this very dangerous, the oncoming traffic cannot been seen easily and often approaches at speed. Almost all cycists choose to cross against the red light instead and often get shouted at by local Community Support Officers! Cyclists need a dedicated traffic light here.Dutch-style cycleway:

There's room for a small cycle lane that could get cyclists to the advance line/box, but in the absence of one cyclists are forced to navigate through a massive number of cars, buses, and trucks. If they don't do that to get to the front, they are stuck in the middle of traffic that may ignore their presence. This is VERY DANGEROUS.Dutch-style cycleway:

41860Photo #41860This is the point on the Aldwych where I very regularly discover that someone hasn't worked out which lane they should be in. The open multi-lane layout encourages them to speed. The fast-dawning disorientation causes them to swerve. Meanwhile, several buses pull out across the lanes... I cycle rightwards around here every day and have to approach it like a gladiator. The whole Aldwych system is a nightmare for cyclists and pedestrians alike: it's very suggestive that Kingsway is the one road on my commute onto which pedestrians regularly step outside the light sequence and away from the crossings. There is enough width in the road to allow for a cyclist system and enough space for more crossings. The existing pedestrian crossing on the north Strand side is on far too short a programme and I regularly see people get beeped out of the way, their heels grazed by cabs and vans. Not the way a West End street should function in this day and age.Dutch-style cycleway:
