June Meeting

Please find the action points from our June meeting in the attached file. The July SLS meeting (Thursday 17th) will consist of a walkabout of some new street interventions in Lambeth with Haibat Abro who showed us around Van Gogh Walk last year. We plan to visit Bonnington Square, Claylands Rd, Dorset Rd and Albert Square. We will meet at 6pm at Oval Tube Station (on the Northern Line). We will undertake the walkabout and then head off to a local pub for a pre-summer break drink and chat. We will be joined by Anna Collins from Living Streets Head Office who tell us about the activities currently being undertaken by Living Streets at a London and national level. Any problems on the day, Jeremy’s number is 07415-243015.

Traffic Volumes – Southwark

The spreadsheet below summarises parts of the DfT annual monitoring of vehicle flows in Southwark on the borough’s A roads. Volumes have been measured on A roads by Local Authority from 2000 to 2012 and the data is held at:

http://www.dft.gov.uk/traffic-counts/

with the London boroughs at:

http://www.dft.gov.uk/traffic-counts/area.php?region=London

The data is based on “Annual Average Daily Flows” (AADF) of different types of vehicles along routes (eg the A3). The spreadsheet with all of the Southwark data is below (with a few extra columns added over and above the raw data from the DfT). This is summarised in the worksheet Output but if you would like to analyse the info, that can be done in the worksheet Analysis and the raw data appears in the worksheet Data. The main thing to say is that the routes are made up of a number of sections (eg A215 comprises the Walworth Rd, Camberwell Rd, Denmark Hill and Herne Hill) and in the raw data each of the component links can be looked at separately. The main thing to arise from the data is the sharp declines in average volumes of almost a third across all main roads in Southwark over this 12 year period.

TfL Future Streets Incubator Fund.

 

TfL is launching this new scheme entitled the Future Streets Incubator Fund which seeks to “transform roads, streets and underused public spaces across the Capital with funding from this £1.8m Fund.”

They go on to say “We are looking for small-scale pilot scheme submissions from local boroughs, Business Improvement Districts and community groups to award funding to over the next three years.

From ideas such as temporary public plazas to new street layouts, technology and infrastructure, the fund will be a great way to try out innovative low-cost measures.

This will help to deliver recommendations made by the Mayor’s Roads Task Force, which aims to radically improve London’s roads, streets and public spaces

If you would like to share your idea with us informally, you can submit a brief expression of interest form detailing your proposed trial.

Email your expression of interest to incubator@tfl.gov.uk by 1 June 2014.”
