Proposals

We want to improve bus services on St Helier Avenue and make the area a safer environment for pedestrians. We propose:

  • Introducing over 1.5km of new bus lanes operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a 1.6km stretch of road (both directions accounted for)
  • Two new pedestrian crossings at Langdon Walk and Dore Gardens, making St Helier Avenue easier to cross as highlighted by the community
  • Widening footways/pavements at side road junctions to increase space for pedestrians
  • Increasing parking restrictions by changing single red lines to double red lines, changing parking operating hours and removing some parking bays, making bus journeys quicker
  • Retain existing cycle track along western footway of St Helier Avenue
  • Support existing speed restrictions (20mph)




Summary of changes

  • Parking bay just after Boxley Road to be removed and replaced with double red lines in order to provide better benefits for buses


  • Footway buildout at Connaught Gardens provides more space for people walking and makes vehicles travel more slowly reducing risk of accidents occurring


  • New bus lane at Connaught Gardens bus stop allows buses to pull in and pull out efficiently


  • Footway buildout at Arras Avenue provides more space for pedestrians. Parking bay to be inset into the footway buildout


  • New traffic light-signalled crossing at Langdon Walk, providing point for crossing St Helier Avenue safely


  • New traffic light-signalled crossing at Netley Gardens, providing point for crossing St Helier Avenue safely


  • Cycle track realigned at Langdon Walk to enable creation of new traffic-signalled safe crossing point


  • Shared use area created for people walking and cycling at Netley Gardens to enable creation of new traffic-signalled safe crossing point


  • More double red lines along St Helier Avenue increase restrictions and make buses run more reliably more frequently


  • Buses suffer less delays due to parking restrictions preventing other vehicles blocking their travel on St Helier Avenue


  • 1600m of new bus lane with 24/7 operation allows buses to proceed quickly and reliably along St Helier Avenue


  • Footway built out at Rose Hill Roundabout bus stop increases waiting space for bus users and prevents situations where buses cannot pull out into traffic to continue journeys
