Re-route: There was significant public opposition to the proposal in the public consultation for the two-way cycle track to continue alongside Claremont Gardens. As a result, the proposals have been revised to re-route cyclists around The Crescent which has very low traffic flows and will not require any reduction in parking bays or pavements.
While the route is less direct, cyclists can be accommodated without construction of cycle lanes, and there will be no shared pavement sections alongside Claremont Gardens. Road markings and signs will be the only design measures along The Crescent.
The proposals for The Crescent are:
- New on-road cycle route signs and markings
- Facilities for cyclists to travel in both direction in the one-way section at the southern end
Parking: Feedback was also received around loss of parking spaces. Three additional resident parking bays will be retained, which means retention of 10 parking bays at the northern end of Claremont Road. This level of supply matches the peak demand measured in video surveys. There is no loss of pay and display parking in the revised proposals so commuter parking is unaffected.
