Can’t be bothered to fill in consultations.... well don’t moan about the unbelievably stupid TfL traffic schemes currently hitting London, bringing the place to a gridlocked polluting mess.
If all the people users and residents alike, who use Edgware Road, only 584 bothered to fill in the consultation, most from the cycle lobby and probably living outside the Greater London area.
On the approval of just 340 people, the speed limit will be permanently lowered to 20mph.
With the approval of just 374 people, there will be dramatic changes to 5 major junctions, including:
• Narrowed Road space
• Longer red signals with count down timers
• Enforceable cycle only boxes at each junction
• Additional pedestrian crossings
All this because people couldn’t be bothered to fill out a 5 minute consultation.
This below from TfL’s website:
This below, is the email reply from TfL to the 584 who could be bothered.
Dear Sir or Madam
Between 5 November and 23 December 2018, we consulted on proposals to improve five junctions on Edgware Road, between Marylebone Flyover and Marble Arch, and to introduce a 20mph speed limit.
We have published our Consultation Report, which summarises how we sought the views and ideas from the community in and around Edgware Road on our proposals. Our report includes our responses to the most common issues which summarises the responses we received to our consultation.
In total, we received 584 responses to the consultation of which:
· 64 per cent supported or strongly supported the changes to the five junctions; and,
· 59 per cent supported or strongly supported the introduction of a 20mph speed limit
We intend to implement the scheme as consulted upon but will continue to work with our partners and stakeholders on its detailed design and future construction and implementation.
