152603Photo #152603On E-Scooters:
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
Greenpeace agree with this idea.
For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.
This Solution does not apply to High Streets and yes more Zebra Crossings will be needed to be installed on busier Roads, making those Roads, ‘Semi Pedestrianized’. Some Pavements will have to be Green and Blue, but most are wide enough, with Pedestrians able to cross the Road to a complete Green Pavement via the new Zebra Crossings. Pedestrians safety, E-Scooter Safety ‘must’ come first, ahead of the ‘Car’.
The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
The Government will be debating E-Scooters soon, and my MP Sarah Jones has told me she will be forwarding this solution.
I have had a great agreeable response; please ask your friends and public for their opinion.

It would be nice to have a cycle parking in Brondesbury park. Any plan to develop the network?

Thank you

150389Photo #150389There's a big residential building - Exeter Mansions. Multiple tenants would like to commute to work by bike but there is nowhere they could park their bikes (neither around nor inside the building). Moreover there are no bike parkings anywhere in the close neighbourhood.Cycle parking:

133724Photo #133724Typical for the hostile road layout in Brent! Very dangerous and horrible place for pedestrians walking on the Harrow Road to cross Craven Park Road as motorized vehicles turning left have priority. Zebra crossing should be established on the crossing, with pedestrians having priority. Also cyclists in danger traveling along the Harrrow road from traffic turning left on to Craven park. I think that the road is too wide for the motorized traffic and should be reduced to a narrower single lane, where they can't overtake cyclists if they want to turn left.Track:
