I commute in to school on my bike. This is brilliant - especially given the lack of separate cycle infrastructure in the area.
Thank you!!

The sooner every single cycle lane in London, and particularly in Marylebone, is removed and restored to normal traffic and pedestrian use cannot be soon enough.

They form a blot on this wonderful city's landscape, quite apart from their almost total under-use.

Furthermore, we all apparently now must kow-tow to people who are neither themselves nor their bicycles registered or insured and are apparently always seen as the innocent party in any conflict or accident, whatever the reality.

Let us be rid of them – AND SOON!!!

I regularly cycle from Marylebone Station and south down Harewood Avenue and on to the C27 cycleway. I particularly like the southbound cycle lane and loading bays on Harewood Avenue. At the moment that is a very uncomfortable place to cycle as the narrow lanes and unloading vehicles mean there is no room for cyclists, and the pavement becomes all too tempting to use.

Removing the need for the on-pavement cycle lane on the southbound side seems good for pedestrians as well as cyclists, too.

I am broadly supportive of this proposal. This is currently a difficult junction that I avoid, often preferring Lisson Grove. I particularly welcome the contraflow cycle lane on Harewood Avenue. Advance stop lines are frequently ignored by motorists. This will need enforcement.

I often cross Marylebone road from Harewood avenue to Enford Street on cycle and it feels currently very dangerous, particularly when the traffic is incoming. The changes to this intersection are very welcome.

I live close to Harewood Avenue and Marylebone Road. I do not cycle and I have always felt that cyclists should keep off the main roads such as Marylebone Road for their own safety and to help the flow of buses. I am also aware from daily journeys by car or walking that not many cyclists use the route proposed so again you are changing matters for a clear minority rather than trying to cause less pollution by keeping traffic moving which reduces the fumes from stationary vehicles. Even if I oppose this change I am sure it won’t make any difference, but all I ask is that cyclists are made to keep to their designated areas, obey the lights and keep off the pavement.

I'm a local resident and as a driver, I often use Harewood Avenue. It is the main street to acccess to Marylebone Road and it's busy enough for motor vehicles.
Cyclists should use other streets. I completely oppose this proposal! It will bring us more chaotic traffic in this area.

very good idea/ proposal

The contraflow lanes must be segregated from oncoming traffic using protective concrete barriers.

I am a local resident and I'm also a motorist.

I regularly cycle to and from Marylebone along parts of the route of these proposed changes, and upon review of the provided information and materials, as well as my own research into how it will affect the efficiency of my route when cycling - I firmly support the proposed changes.

On a normal journey Google/Apple maps normally decides to direct me all the way along the bumpy Lisson Grove - where the junction across Marylebone Road is especially dicey for cyclists, or along Edgware Road - where the large amount of traffic is not particularly ideal for cycling and where I have on more than one occasion incurred unprovoked verbal abuse by motorists.
If I were to cycle instead along the route comprising of the proposed junction improvements there is a fair bit more of an incline to factor in compared to the more direct main road route, but using a dedicated cycle path to stay on provides a much safer and smoother journey. I'm happy to let TFL give it a go and see how it improves the cycle highway, as cycling along this route into Marylebone is: more fun than driving, clearer of other road vehicles and their subsequent gas emissions, a damn sight cheaper, and a good bit of easy exercise.
Thanks for reading my response, and I hope it helps support the final decision.

As a general point, I don't feel any safer as a cyclist by the provision of advanced stop boxes.
Black taxis and minicabs routinely enter the advanced stop box at many junctions in London.

I support this important scheme which will make cycling safer and more accessible to more people

Bluecloud9 7 months ago

This junction is currently dangerous for cyclists, so many people like myself who wish we could cycle more are unable to do so.
I support this proposal which will improve the junction and make cycling safer so more people can benefit from the convenience and health benefits of cycling.
This will also make driving more comfortable for drivers as they won’t have to deal with cyclists weaving around them as much, which can be challenging when driving - I think everyone will benefit.
I would support the cycleways themselves being fully segregated, as that would make the scheme even safer.

I am a daily cyclist and pedestrian who has lived on Hamilton Terrace for 27 year's....this unique Architurally significant street. Daily I both walk and cycle the neighbourhood and know many of the neighbours as we always look out for each other both on this street and St Johns Wood Tear. and Northwick terrace....I TOTALLY OPPOSE this scene. I'm fully up in knowing what cyclist numbers use this street and what a family focused pedestrian popular street this is. Especially parents walking their kids to school and teachers leading their students in lines up and down this street...from the numerous schools around here. The proposal for the suggested need to shorten the pedestrian crossing on St Johns Wood Road by widening the foot path and reducing the car parking spaces just doesn't assist a better quality of communal living , when already we struggle to accommodate the current requirements... it's foolhardy and anti-social Please use the Lisson Grove ......Harewood right turn ....which already is a better accessing link for all parties involved. ..... Youth clubs/ hospital's / retirement homes for the local elderly who's numbers grow massively each year and after hours school clubs and lunches ....THIS is where the monies should be spent NOT ON THIS Hamilton Terrace route .........I'm
a everyday going to work cyclist and enjoy Londons cycle lane expansion BUT THIS IS A BADLY thought thru plan and I am hoping my protest as a local tax payer will be carefully considered.

I am a resident that lives in the area and I regularly cycle in the area to get to work and also around central London. I also drive on weekends from time to time.

I think the proposal is a very good idea and it will go a long way to reducing accidents and injuries to cyclists. I cycle around London a fair bit (average at least 10 trips on a bike per week) and in my view, the Harewood Avenue/ Marylebone Road intersection definitely feels very unsafe currently for cyclists. I never feel at ease crossing this intersection (when compared to other parts of London, like in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) and I've seen other cyclists almost being hit by cars due to (a) large volume of cars, (b) large volume of cyclists) and (c) no dedicated space for cyclists (like how it is contemplated by the new proposal). The end result is that cyclists end up riding (unlawfully) on the pavement with other pedestrians which also increases risks for pedestrians and I can recall at least one instance of confrontation between a pedestrian and a cyclist using the pedestrian path (instead of the road).

On the flip side, whenever I drive and go through the same intersection, I feel uncomfortable with bikes being so close and sharing the same space (a dedicated lane for them would help massively). Another factor is that the wait time for the traffic light is rather lengthy and so when the light is eventually green, all cars would like to speed/rush to get through the light, which also puts more risk of injury on cyclists.

I do not support this proposal as it takes away from other users of the road. I believe resources should be directed elsewhere.

MV123456 7 months ago

Love that more cycle lanes are being built. Strong believer in greener transport and encouraging people away from private care use. The proposals look really good, although the route maybe slightly convoluted - but dedicated cycle lanes are miles better to drive down than roads with busy traffic - so I'm sure they'll be well used.

Jelliott20 7 months ago

Really like these plans - always supportive of ways to make our streets greener and more cycle-friendly. It would be good to understand how this fits into longer term plans as well, for example it seems like it would make sense to have a cycle route from St. John's Wood Road heading East to connect with Regents Park & Camden as well as West, to connect with Notting Hill & the Canal.

The only other comment would be what impact this has on car parking in the area. It would be good to see more generous resident or free-parking bays made available to compensate for any slots that are lost. Thanks!

The potential in this city for more bike journeys is enormous and I welcome these plans to make cycling easier and less dangerous, which is what puts so many people off.
I do feel it should be viewed as just a first step and new ways of ensuring safety continually looked at. I hope there will be some monitoring of any accidents or near misses which occur for bikes follow this change. There are always cars which break the speed limit and come too close to cyclists so the way forward I believe is to keep trying to separate cyclists on dedcated lanes where possible to be away from motorists. Along with more stringent punishments for these driving behaviours. It would be good to know how countries like germany and holland have educated their motorists to be so considerate to cyclists. Maybe it is a virtuous circle and the more people we encourage to cycle the more considerate they will be as drivers? Anyway, I applaud these plans as a really good start!
