Harewood Avenue and Enford Street Cycle Route

We are extremely concerned that Transport for London has decided to go ahead with plans to alter Harewood Avenue and Enford Street to accommodate additional cycle lanes. They have taken no account of strong objections from the Association, the St Marylebone Society and others, questioning aspects of the proposals on grounds of safety for pedestrians, children at the primary school in Enford Street and, indeed, for cyclists themselves. Enford Street is far too narrow to accommodate one traffic la...

Friday & Saturday Night Tube starts on the Central & Victoria Lines
The first Night Tube services will launch on the Central and Victoria lines on Friday 19 August, with services on the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines following later this year. The Night Tube will offer a 24-hour service on Fridays and Saturdays nights only.

Action Against Engine Idling Day

Action Against Engine Idling Day

The Association has long campaigned against motorists who contribute to air pollution by sitting with their engines idling and we are pleased Westminster City Council taking further measures to enforce the law. The Council is seeking volunteers for an 'Idling Action Day' on 12th July to reinforce the message. Before participating, volunteers have to have attended one of two training sessions at Westminster City Hall. One session is on 5 July and the other on 7 July, both between 12noon and 2pm.

Traffic and City Management Report June 2016

Traffic and City Management Report June 2016

This year has again been characterised by many meetings, with much discussion and argument, but very few results. As I write, at the end of April, an election period has once more intervened to delay matters, including publication of the results of the second consultation on the Baker Street Two-way scheme. We hope to see final plans emerge which will appeal to all stakeholders.
