Dear S Bickers,

 

Thank you again for your email.

 

Your information request relates to the layout installed as part of Cycle
Superhighway East West (CSEW) back in May 2016. However, the scope of
information you have asked for is extremely broad.

 

In order for us to process your FOI request, please can you be more
specific with the information you require?

 

The Freedom of Information Act allows you to request recorded information
held by Transport for London. There are limits on the time that we are
required to spend determining whether we hold the information you are
requesting and the time spent locating, retrieving and extracting it.
Therefore you should identify the information that you want as clearly and
concisely as you can, specifying the types of document that you are
looking for. You might also consider limiting your request to a particular
period of time, geographical area or specific departments of the
organisation.

 

Although your request can take the form of a question, rather than a

it would require the creation of new information or the provision of a

Please note that the 20 working day deadline for responding to your

Dear S Bickers,

 

As it stands your request is still quite vague and to find all the
information that meets that description would exceed the cost limit.

 

Please can you be more specific with the information you require so we can
narrow our search?

 

Kind regards,

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your email.
I will try to clarify my request.
Since the EW Cycle Superhighway opened has anyone in TfL looked at what the impact of the Superhighway has been on pedestrians crossing the road at the junction of Victoria Embankment and Bridge Street.
If they have, then I would like the detail.s

I would assume that the teams/units/departments in charge of a) the Cycle Superhighways and b) Walking and Pedestrians; would be the most likely source of the information (if it exists).

Yours sincerely,

S Bickers

Dear S Bickers,

 

TfL Ref: 1991-1718

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 25
October 2017 asking for information regarding the East-West Cycle
Superhighway at the junction of Victoria Embankment and Bridge Street.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked:

 

Since the EW Cycle Superhighway opened has anyone in TfL looked at what
the impact of the Superhighway has been on pedestrians crossing the road
at the junction of Victoria Embankment and Bridge Street.

If they have, then I would like the details.

 

A Road Safety Audit was undertaken on this junction in October 2016 and no
safety concerns were raised regarding the pedestrian crossing on Victoria
Embankment near the junction with Bridge Street. Please find attached a
copy of this document.

 

Please note that names and email addresses have been redacted. This is
done in accordance with TfL’s obligations under the Data Protection Act
1998 (DPA), as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because
disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the DPA,
specifically the first principle of the DPA which requires all processing
of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose
this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it
would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions of
Schedule 2 of the Data Protection Act which would make the processing
‘fair’. This exemption to the right of access to information is an
absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public
interest favours use of the exemption.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
