THE FACTS AND DATA

TfL have not assessed the scheme’s traffic and pollution impact.

TfL have based their traffic and pollution assessments for Holland Park Roundabout on modelling done for C34 cycleway (connecting Hammersmith and Fulham) – a quieter route that doesn’t go through a roundabout and bears no resemblance to the proposed scheme.

There is no evidence that this scheme will make cycling safer

  • An analysis of the accident data TfL used shows that of the 54 accidents, there was only 1 cycle or pedestrian accident on the roundabout, classified as slight.
  • An assessment of The Cycle Ambition Study commissioned by DfT assessing new cycling infrastructure in 8 UK cities states it could not find any evidence of improved cycle safety.
  • The number of cycle collisions has doubled in King Street since cycleway C9 was implemented, and the number of serious cycle collisions has tripled

This is not a bus or pedestrian friendly scheme

  • In line with other London cycle highways, the fewer lanes leading into and on Holland Park Roundabout will increase congestion and bus & emergency vehicle journey times

local shops will face business loss

  • Customers avoid areas where there is increased congestion or loss of parking, resulting in an immediate loss in local business and even shop closures
