New Cycle Route From Pimlico Proposed

The new proposals include

  • Segregated two-way cycle track replaces one traffic lane on Spur Road (between Constitution Hill and the junction of Spur Road and The Mall)
  • Segregated two-way cycle track replaces two southbound traffic lanes on Spur Road (between the junction of Spur Road and The Mall, and Birdcage Walk)

Elements of the previous scheme that would remain

  • Eastbound segregated cycle track and westbound mandatory cycle lane replace one traffic lane on Birdcage Walk
  • New signalised junction at Birdcage Walk / Spur Road
  • Relocated signalised pedestrian crossing on Birdcage Walk (outside Wellington Barracks), with a dedicated traffic light phase for cyclists
  • Straighter, shorter and wider pedestrian crossings at Buckingham Gate
  • Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists at Buckingham Gate
  • Widened footways on the western side of Link Road replace one traffic lane

Detailed proposals

Segregated two-way cycle track replaces one traffic lane on Spur Road (between Constitution Hill and the junction of Spur Road and The Mall)

  • The cycle track would allow cyclists to travel between Birdcage Walk and Constitution Hill without having to travel around the busy gyratory and move across traffic lanes
  • The cycle track would be at carriageway level and would be 6 metres wide (narrowing to 4.5 metres wide at the traffic signals). It would be separated from other traffic by a row of segregating flexible bollards
  • Cyclists would continue to be able to travel between Constitution Hill and The Mall (North Horse Ride) using the existing shared-use footway; bollards would help encourage appropriate cycling speed

Segregated two-way cycle track replaces two southbound traffic lanes on Spur Road (between the junction of Spur Road and The Mall, and Birdcage Walk)

  • This proposal replaces the proposed mandatory southbound cycle lane that we consulted on in February, and would make it a two-way cycle track
  • Making the track two-way, instead of one-way, would allow cyclists to travel northbound as well as southbound along Spur Road, between Birdcage Walk and Constitution Hill, without having to travel around the busy gyratory and move across traffic lanes
  • The cycle track would be at carriageway level and would be 6 metres wide (narrowing to 4.5 metres wide at the traffic signals and through Australia Gate). It would be separated from other traffic by a row of segregating flexible bollards
  • The signalised junction at Spur Road/Birdcage Walk would have dedicated traffic light phases for cyclists, allowing cycle and vehicle movements to be separated. Motor traffic would be held at red lights whilst cyclists travel east and west through the junction. Left-turning traffic from Spur Road would also be held at a red light whilst cyclists turn right from Spur Road into Birdcage Walk (towards Buckingham Gate)

This consultation closes on Sunday, 4 October 2015.

Pimlico Flats Newsletter – July 2015

Pimlico Flat ended 2014 with a new management team who are yet to be formally introduced to the world, but have made themselves known to tenants as we introduce new ways of doing business. 2014 was a year of change in which we introduced a number of  new people, and new ways of doing business. However we have had a stressful start to 2015, which we are now fully on top of.

In 2014 we had a disappointing lack of support from the police in dealing with the drugs dealer living in 79 Winchester St. who was making the lives of local residents and neighbours a misery, however after a long legal battle with the dealer’s legal aid team she was finally evicted, albeit she trashed the premises on her departure. A repair and refurbishment of the premises is currently underway, hopefully providing new affordable homes for 4 people later this year.

We had a massive big flood last year when the tenants in 71 Winchester St. awoke to the sound of the fire alarm and saw a river of water pouring down the stairs (except for a single tenant who slept through it all until he was woken by Philomena). Fire engines were called, alarms going and water gushing, fire men marching up to the boiler room all before the birds on a cold dark early morning of a Sunday… fortunately on of our regular contractors attended at 04:00 in order to stop the flood – which was caused by a burst pressure vessel (possibly a unique event).  This left the common parts of 71 Winchester St. badly in need of repair & replacement which has now been completed with a new carpet throughout.

The outside of the houses is left shabby and damp due to this flood and several other troublesome maintenance issues which have now been resolved. We are committed to supporting the local Pimlico community and consequently we have employed a local contractor to repair and repaint the fronts of the properties. The Scaffolding will be erected on the front of 79 & 77 Winchester St. from 20th July, being moved to 73, 75, 71 Winchester St. a month later, and the fronts of the houses will be repaired and repainted.

We have also had a major overhaul of our repair reporting system. We are trialling an online reporting system available at https://pimlico-flats.fixflo.com/Auth/HomeIssueCreate  which we hope will be the future of resolving tenant issues quickly and efficiently. Most tenants are using this system successfully.

Have your say on transforming Vauxhall Cross

The Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea development will bring 25,000 new jobs and 18,000 new homes to the area. Yet Vauxhall’s potential to flourish is held back because it is dominated by traffic.

We want Vauxhall to continue to benefit from this regeneration. We are working with the London Borough of Lambeth on ambitious plans to create a thriving centre for Vauxhall, to make it a better, safer, more vibrant place for everyone who lives, works and travels through it.

The proposals include removing the one-way traffic system around Vauxhall Cross and returning the streets to two-way working, and making improvements to the rail, bus and tube interchange. This will create a safer environment for the growing number of pedestrians and cyclists in the area.

The plans are still at an early stage and we would like to hear your views to help shape the designs we take forward during the next year.
