Paddington Central canal tow path

We have asked the Paddington Central team to investigate this issue:

“Since the start of September I have been walking my daughter along the canalside to Paddington Station so that she can catch the tube to school. The towpath is supposed to be an area of pedestrian priority, however the volume of cycling traffic and the speed at which they travel is frightening and it seems only a matter of time before someone is injured or indeed pushed into the canal.   Cyclists travel very fast and ring their bells to effectively force pedestrians out of their way.  At morning and evening rush hour there is certainly no sense that pedestrians have priority at all.  Would it be possible together the marshals who work for Paddington Central to monitor the behaviour of cyclists along the towpath to the station?  Can ‘speed limits’ be enforced?  Should cyclists be made to dismount at rush hour?”

Eastbourne Terrace – update 

The Council tells us: 

“We are still discussing with Crossrail the dates for Eastbourne Terrace being brought back into public use by this December. Crossrail’s use of the road is covered by the Crossrail Act so Westminster cannot take the road back until they give up their use and powers related to the road. We intend to be formally consulting on returning the road in its revised layout in the near future and we will include in that consultation news on the dates for works and the return of public use of the road, including buses and coaches.”
