Lisson Grove Local Safety Scheme

Lisson Grove Local Safety Scheme

Ward: Church Street

Streets Affected: Ashmill Street, Broadley Street, Capland Street, Church Street, Frampton Street, Harewood Row, Lilestone Street, Lisson Grove, Marylebone Road

Project Type: Sustainable Transport (Buses, Cycling etc)

Project Overview

Lisson Grove forms part of the London Cycle Network Plus, (LCN+), Route 5 which runs from Chelsea Bridge Road via Hyde Park and Lisson Grove to the Camden Borough Boundary, within the City of Westminster and improved facilities for cyclists have also been included in conjunction with the Local Safety Scheme as part of the LCN+ Project.

In order to improve road safety for all road users, a series of engineering measures were implemented along the route from south of the St John’s Wood Road junction through to just north of the Marylebone Road junction, as described below:

  • Lodge Road: entry treatment and right turning lane.
  • Frampton Street: traffic signals at the Lisson Grove /Frampton Street junction incorporating pedestrian facilities on Lisson Grove south of the junction and on Frampton Street. Improvements to ensure safety for cyclists were incorporated into the junction design.
  • Frampton Street to Church Street: changes were made to the kerb side layout in this section of Lisson Grove.
  • Church Street junction: removal of north bound right turn lane into Lilestone Street and repositioning of pedestrian refuge islands to alleviate existing pinch point for southbound traffic. Improvements to ensure safety for cyclists were incorporated into the junction design.
  • Zebra crossing north of Broadley Street: improvements were made to the zebra crossing including resurfacing and application of skid resistant surfacing.
  • Zebra crossing north of Ashmill Street, outside St Edward’s Primary School: improvements were made to the zebra crossing including kerb realignment, footway improvements and resurfacing with application of skid resistant surfacing.
  • Harewood Row junction and zebra crossing: extra road markings provided to highlight cycle accident area and resurfacing with application of skid resistant surfacing.
  • Whole length: a) installation of central hatching road markings where feasible to visually narrow the road to encourage lower vehicle speeds; b) Review of signage in order to reduce sign clutter.
