Cycling Level of Service scores for proposed Quietway interventions

The request was successful.

Dear Wandsworth Borough Council,

At the Community Services Overview and Scrutiny committee meeting coming up on the 24th November, paper 15-458 refers to the Quietways programme. The Quietways are being funded by TfL, co-ordinated by Sustrans in partnership with Wandsworth Council as the principal highways authority for the majority of the streets along which the proposed quietways will pass.

As part of the new London Cycle Design Standards, there is a Cycling level of service (CLoS) toolkit, which provides an ability to quantify the quality of the current street layout, and quantify how any proposed changes will improve the level of service.

Please provide the CLoS scores for the interventions referred to in paper 15-458, both for the current street layout and what the scores will be if the proposals are given the go-ahead following consultation.

Yours faithfully,

Jon Irwin

Request for Information - 2015/12150 - Cycling Level of Service

 

I refer to your request for information received on 23/11/2015.  Please
see the information below in response to your request: -

 

At the Community Services Overview and Scrutiny committee meeting  coming
up on the 24th November, paper 15-458 refers to the Quietways programme.
The Quietways are being funded by TfL, co-ordinated by Sustrans in
partnership with  Wandsworth Council as  the principal highways authority
for the majority of the streets along which the proposed quietways will
pass.  As part of the new London Cycle Design Standards, there is a
Cycling Level of Service (CLoS) toolkit, which provides an ability to
quantify the quality of the current street layout, and quantify how any
proposed changes will improve the level of service.

Please provide the CLoS scores for the interventions referred to in paper
15-458, both for the current street layout and what the scores will be if
the proposals are given the go-ahead following consultation.

 

The Council has not undertaken this assessment. The Quietway proposals
have been developed by Sustrans for the Council, and the governance of
Quietway designs involves them being reviewed and approved by a Quietways
Board led by TfL, the funder of the routes. Cycling Level of Service
assessment forms part of this Board’s review process so your query would
be better directed to TfL. 

In order to assist you I attach the relevant TFL contact details below:

Dear Freedom Of Information,

Many thanks for highlighting that I should ask TfL for the details regarding the CLoS evaluation on the proposed Quietways. I will be certain to follow up with TfL.

Can you please confirm that Wandsworth Council as the relevant highways authority has not seen any details regarding CLoS evaluations for the proposed interventions. If Wandsworth Council officers have had sight of CLoS evaluations carried out by TfL or their contractors for the Quietways, please could you supply them.

Yours sincerely,

Jon Irwin

It has been confirmed that Council officers cannot recall seeing Cycling
