Dear Royal Parks Agency,

I understand that Transport for London's East-West Cycle Superhighway project includes the following proposals for Hyde Park's North Carriage Drive.

From https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling...
"- North Carriage Drive one-way only for eastbound vehicles (except cycles)
- Dedicated cycle track on North Carriage Drive, separated from other traffic by a surface level horse ride
- Provision for cyclist when North Carriage Drive is closed through traffic."

And from https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling...
"- Introduction of raised kerb segregation on North Carriage Drive between the traffic lane/horse track and the cycle track, which allows for a permanent cycle track to be maintained throughout the year, including during events
- Reduction of the northern footway on North Carriage Drive in order to maintain the minimum carriageway width required for event operations. The footway will be a minimum of 2.7m wide"

Could I please request a schedule/programme for work to design and implement the above proposals on North Carriage Drive and any other documents that your authority holds concerning the progress of this work?

Yours faithfully,

Mrs K McYarnington

Dear Mrs Yarnington,

The design proposals are being developed for North Carriage Drive. If a
satisfactory design solution can be agreed it is intended that works be
carried out between January and April 2019. This is subject to agreement
on the detailed design and programme between Transport for London and The
Royal Parks.

 

Due to the numerous draft designs and options considered over the last
three years it is not possible to assemble all the material within the
time limits allowed by the Freedom of Information legislation and
guidance. However, if you would like to speak to the Head of Park
Management on this subject please let us know.

 

I hope that this information satisfies your request.
