    Hello

    There are a number of abandoned bikes at Kingston station and they’ve been there for some time. Spaces to lock up bikes are at a premium. Is there any update on when the council will remove them? Thanks

    Please would you let me know if your organisation will be formally responding to the Riverside SPD consultation?I currently use the cycle path through Canbury Gardens and then cycle past the front of John Lewis riverside windows, through the tunnel under the road bridge, past the restaurants, turning left at Cote Brasserie ie before the sign ‘to dismount, as I find this safer than cycling through the town to reach the AncientMarket. Please would you confirm if this route is currently permissible and willl it cease to be permissible under the proposed SPD?
    I am a 58 year old female who commutes to Kingston every day. Thank you.

    Thank you

      Hello Jean, Yes we will be submitting a response on the consultation. Currently the cycle route goes alongside the Thames beside Canbury Gardens and is shared use. The council propose to not allow cycling on that path but allow cycling through the Gardens -probably with a new path round by The Boaters. People (perhaps not cyclists) seem to be saying they don’t want cycling in the Gardens. Would you think it OK to cycle through the Gardens on shared paths rather than the narrow riverside path?

      Cycling on the waterfront beside John Lewis and under Kingston Bridge is not currently permitted as far as we know. I don’t think it is expressly signed as such i.e there aren’t any “No Cycling” signs, but the aren’t signs to say you can either.

      The mini-Holland programme includes a route from The Portsmouth route along the riverside to a point north of Kingston Bridge. The original proposal was for a pontoon type “boardwalk” that would go through the arch on the river but that seems increasingly unlikely. We want the SPD to include the mini-Holland concept of a continuous route.

      Best regards, Jon

    Why don’t you campaign for cyclists to be allowed along Clarence Street before 8am and after 6pm? Instead millions are being spent on taking bikes along the most dangerous section of road (especially during the roadworks) outside the station. I commute through kingston and want to take the most direct route to kingston bridge. Before 8am there are few pedestrians on this road.
