Consultation has concluded

Update 30 January 2024

Today we have published our Consultation Report which explains the outcome of the consultation. We received 323 responses to the consultation and would like to thank everyone who took part.

Taking on board all feedback and based on further assessments, we have decided to consider an alternative set of proposals to those we consulted on for the junction of St. John’s Wood Road / Hamilton Terrace / Northwick Terrace. We believe it would be preferable to route Cycleway 51 via Cunningham Place and to amend the pedestrian and cycle crossing over St. John’s Wood Road. In early February 2024 we will hold a further consultation on these new proposals, and we will make a final decision on how to move forward once the consultation has concluded and we have considered the feedback we will receive. To see the plans for this consultation visit haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/cunninghamplace (website will be live on Monday 5 February)

We will decide how to proceed with the junction of St John’s Wood Road / Cunningham Place and the junction of Marylebone Road / Harewood Avenue / Enford Street once we have concluded the second consultation. Our responses to the issues raised in both consultations will be published in Spring 2024.

Our proposals are subject to Westminster City Council’s decision on how to proceed with the wider Cycleway 51 route.

Background

We have been working with Westminster City Council to develop proposals for a new high-quality Cycleway connecting Marylebone and St. John’s Wood with new crossings, protected cycle lanes and low-traffic streets. Cycleway 51 would also link to Lisson Grove and the Regent’s Canal and to the existing Cycleway 27 (East Acton to Walthamstow). It is a high priority in Transport for London’s Strategic Cycling Analysis which shows where there is likely to be high demand for better cycling routes in this area of London.Click on map for larger version

We would like your feedback on proposals to improve the junctions of Marylebone Road / Harewood Avenue / Enford Street and St. John’s Wood Road / Hamilton Terrace / Northwick Terrace as part of Cycleway 51. We would like to know how these proposals might impact you as you travel into or through the area.

What are we proposing at the Marylebone Road / Harewood Avenue / Enford Street junction

Click on map for larger versionAs part of the proposed Cycleway 51, a new cycle crossing of Marylebone Road (which is part of the Transport for London Road Network) is planned to connect Harewood Avenue and Enford Street. We have developed proposals to make it easier and safer for cyclists and pedestrians to cross at this location.

This junction is already well used by cyclists. Our proposals aim to improve safety and to provide a more attractive junction for the predicted increase in cycling along the planned Cycleway 51 from St. John’s Wood to Marylebone. Our proposals would also improve the junction for pedestrians with new and improved crossings and wider footways.

The map shows the proposals for this junction:

Marylebone Road

  1. Extend eastbound bus lane to improve bus journey times
  2. Removal of left turn into Harewood Avenue
  3. Removal of cycle lane on southern pavement and resurface pavement to improve the area for pedestrians
  4. Hospital parking bays relocated from Harewood Avenue to southern side of Marylebone Road

Harewood Avenue

  1. New signalised pedestrian crossing to improve safety for pedestrians to cross
  2. New protected northbound contraflow cycle lane to improve safety for cyclists and increase the number of cycle journeys, improving connections to Marylebone Station, Lisson Grove, Regent’s Canal and St. John’s Wood
  3. New protected southbound cycle lane with cycle box and early release signals. These new features would give cyclists a waiting area ahead of motor traffic, improving their visibility, and allowing them to move away from the traffic lights ahead of motor traffic. This would improve safety for cyclists and increase the number cycle journeys in Marylebone and wider area

Enford Street

  1. New southbound contraflow cycle lane would open up a new connection for cyclists to cross Marylebone Road from Harewood Avenue, improving safety for cyclists and increasing the number of cycle journeys to and from the West End

Click on image for larger versionWe have carried out traffic modelling for this proposal. Our traffic modelling indicates that these proposals would not cause any significant delay to road users in this area. Freight and servicing vehicles, taxis and general traffic would need to use alternative routes as a result of the changes to Harewood Avenue.

We previously consulted on changes to this junction in 2016. We have reviewed these plans and are consulting again to understand the views of the local community and wider stakeholders on our proposals to this junction and the junction at St. John’s Wood Road together.


What are we proposing at the St. John’s Wood Road / Hamilton Terrace / Northwick Terrace junction


Click on map for lager version As part of the proposed Cycleway 51, a pedestrian and cycle crossing is planned connecting Hamilton Terrace and Northwick Terrace crossing St. John’s Wood Road, which is part of the Transport for London Road Network. We have developed proposals to provide a safer and more attractive cycle connection, and to improve safety for pedestrians.


This junction is already well used by cyclists. Our proposals aim to improve safety and to provide a more suitable junction for the predicted increase in cycling along the planned Cycleway 51 . Our proposals also include wider pavements and shorter crossing lengths for pedestrians across St. John’s Wood Road and Hamilton Terrace.

The map shows the proposals for this junction:

Hamilton Terrace

  1. Widening the footways to make it easier for pedestrians to cross
  2. New protected southbound cycle lane to separate cyclists and pedestrians at the parallel zebra crossing
  3. Reducing the traffic lanes into St. John’s Wood Road from two to one to shorten the pedestrian crossing distance and create space for cyclists to enter and exit the new walking and cycling crossing on St. John’s Wood Road
  4. Removal of short section of parking bays on the centre and western side of Hamilton Terrace to facilitate improved pedestrian crossing points and safer passage for cyclists in north and southbound directions

St. John’s Wood Road

  1. New walking and cycling parallel zebra crossing to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists. The new crossing would be a shorter distance than the current crossing
  2. Wider footway on the southern side at two locations to provide more space for pedestrians
  3. New two-way cycle track on the south side between the new walking and cycling crossing and Northwick Terrace to improve the connection from St. John’s Wood to Lisson Grove, Regent’s Canal and Marylebone

Northwick Terrace

  1. New two-way cycle track along the east side of Northwick Terrace to improve connections for cyclists from the new parallel zebra crossing on St. John’s Wood Road. This would improve safety for cyclists, increase the number of cycle journeys and separate pedestrians from cyclists
  2. Raised entry to Northwick Terrace to make it easier for people with pushchairs and wheelchairs to cross
  3. Removal of 12 metres of parking bays in order to build new two-way cycle track

Click on image for larger versionWe have carried out traffic modelling for this proposal. The results indicate that the proposed changes could be made with limited impacts on other road users. The modelling does show that there may be an increase in southbound vehicle queuing on Hamilton Terrace in the weekday AM peak hour.

Any changes to these junctions, following feedback to this consultation, could be made by Autumn 2024.


We have carried out Equalities Impact Assessments to look at the impact of our proposals on groups with protected characteristics. This is available on request.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Highly highly encourage more segregaded bike paths, cycling infrastructure and all efforts to make the city a friendlier, quieter, safer place to navigate by foot and by bycicle.
Cycling through London has been a great experience due to all the changes done over the last few years, the number of cyclists using the infrastructure is refreshing, the city feels more welcoming, inviting and safer.
Thank you for your efforts.

Great that you are improving the link into town across this key junction. Key question for me is how does one access the new route from the Outer Circle. Linking it to the Outer Circle will open it up for use by many more people.

looks great!
definitely would use this route more if it was safer :)

Brilliant and safe idea to have more cycle way and we are all 100% backing this. Thank you for making this happen and we can’t wait for the work to start happening soon!

brightcolours 6 months ago

Although I don't live on your patch I am a daily utility cyclist and support all efforts to redress the balance between motorists and cyclists/pedestrians. So well done and all power to your elbow. I also think this consultation has been well drafted. Mike

Mikecyclist 6 months ago

I cycle here regularly and it's a nightmare. So any improvement will be better. Ideally all cycle routes should be protected from other traffic. Separate traffic lights are always good but the priority needs to be looked at. As soon as the traffic lights are red, pedestrians will try to cross, so please don't give the first green to the cyclists, it just end in conflict. Allow the pedestrian phase to be first before the cycle phase.

Elmie 6 months ago

Not supportive. We have slow enough traffic, congestion and we should not add more to it. We need clear roads for traffic to flow.

sauk 6 months ago

It's a good idea. I fully support it.
I agree with the 20 m9ile speed limit but unfortunately, it's not followed. Due to the lack of cameras most of the transport runs at well over 30mph, specially motorcyclists and sport cars do over 50mph.

abdulquazi 6 months ago

I welcome the plans to improve the infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians in this area.

JennieL 6 months ago

This is well thought-out and will make life better for residents. It doesn't go far enough- tfl still treat everyone but motorists as 2nd class citizens, but it's a good start.

oldedro 6 months ago

I support this, thank you!

Ihorko 6 months ago

I think this is a great proposal, anything to support cleaner transport - specifically the cycling provisions and wider bus lanes are critical. Thank you.

Complete waste of money...................not even a sensible solution for the cyclist. It feels like change for change sake to justify someone's job!!!!

FINANCEMAN 6 months ago

When cyclists start paying road tax, insurance and observe the rules (and legalities) of road crossings I might have some consideration for them. As it is I've been knocked down too many times by idiots on bikes to care. As far as I'm concerned they should be BANNED from streets altogether!

Feverman 6 months ago

I think improving cycling and reducing car traffic in this part of Westminster is a great idea. Would encourage more active commuting, transport and for leisure and improve road safety and that for cyclists and pedestrians.

EdFarr 6 months ago

I support these changes. Thank you for your efforts to improve cycling in London

tsam53 6 months ago

Good to go, approved!

tchiesi99 6 months ago

I think anything that improves road safety for cyclists is a great idea. I am cycling more and more as London gets more safe cycle lanes. I find it outrageous that car users who cause accidents and pollute the air we breathe have right of way on almost every road in the UK. It's not fair and I love that London is taking action!

Zebedee 6 months ago

This is great as I am a full time university student that goes from chiswick to kings cross Central Saint Martins UAL everyday by cycling. So I use the Marylebone road a lot. This would make it more safer and easier.

London2025! 6 months ago

I approve of the aspects of these proposals that provide segregated cycleways or extra cycleways. I also approve of the aspects that improve the pedestrian experience. I am a car driver but cycling and walking should take precedence.
