The scheme aims to provide a safe facility for cyclists along the A13 in response to the removal of the westbound bus lane due before the Olympic games last year. The shared footway would cater for those cyclists that currently wish to maintain a direct route along the A13 rather than using the alternative Cycle Super Highway Route 3.A summary of the scheme includes:· Connects to the existing Cycle Super Highway Route 3· Improves existing cycle facilities on the footway· Provide appropriate cycle signage for shared use footway using existing street furniture where possible· Ghost central give-way bay for cyclist on Nutmeg Lane junction· Cycle advance stop line on the A13 East India Dock Road approach to the junction with the A12.· Dropped kerb access on to the carriageway at the proposed cycle advance stop line and at the bus stop. This requires sections of guard railing to be removed.· Decluttering the footway by removal unnecessary bollards and posts· Discussion with TfL Cycle Superhighways Route 3 Team regarding additional signage at the Leamouth Road junction.May I please ask that you review the attached drawings and pass comment to me no later than 15/03/15. Once all of your comments have been collated the scheme design will reviewed and appropriate amendments incorporated. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the scheme please feel free to contact me onKind RegardsGrant KennairdHighways Engineer, Highways & TransportationHyder Consulting (UK) LtdManning House,22 Carlisle Place,London, SW1P 1JA"
