Quietway 5 Waterloo to Norbury

October 13, 2016

Lambeth Council is working with its partners Transport for London (TfL), on this local engagement. We would like to know your views on the proposed changes to provide the new cycle route through the Vauxhall – Landsdowne Garden area which forms a section of Q5 Waterloo to Norbury.

The Lambeth section of Quietway 5 route starts at Baylis Road through to Tooting Bec Common and extends to the border of London Borough of Croydon. The London Borough of Wandsworth, London Borough of Croydon, and Transport for London are either consulting at the same time as us, or have concluded their consultations for their sections of the cycle route.

 

What are Quietways?

Quietways will be a network of high quality, well signed cycle routes throughout London, mostly using backstreets. The routes will link key destinations and are designed to appeal to new and existing people that cycle who want to use quieter, low-traffic routes. Quietways will complement other cycling initiatives in London, such as the Cycle Superhighways.

 

How does this affect me?

Lambeth is proposing changes to two locations along the route, please see the proposed changes and designs at the links below.

Claylands Road

  • Introduce cycle friendly speeds hump along within close proximity to the junction with Meadow Road

Thorne Road

  • Replace existing speed cushions with cycle friendly speed humps between Landsdowne Gardens and South Lambeth Road

Transport for London is proposing changes at one location along the route, please see the proposed changes and designs at the links below

Aldebert Terrace/Thorne Road

  • The loading bay on Aldebert Terrace is to be moved four metres east of the junction and extended by five metres.
  • The existing Advanced Stop Line (ASL) on Aldebert Terrace is to be reconfigured to increase space for cyclists.
  • The new kerb build out is to accommodate the ASL, and the existing cycle lanes on Aldebert Terrace and Thorne Lane are to be removed, to improve the alignment for cyclists approaching the junction.

Designs showing the proposed changes are available at this link and here

Find your Dr. Bike event!

April 13, 2016

Bring your bike to our team of professional mechanics who will look it over for free and check tyres, brakes, gears and its general roadworthiness. If your bike has an issue that cannot be rectified in 15 minutes they will advise you on what is wrong so you can take it to a bike shop well-informed.

The police will be at the events marking bikes and adding details to BikeRegister.com. This service will deter theft and in the event your bike is stolen, will ensure that your details are on a nationwide database so it is much more likely to be returned to you if recovered.

We will also have our fabulous HGV awareness element at all events except Stockwell. Our friendly drivers and professional cycle instructors will show you how to effectively road share with big vehicles. You will have the opportunity to come and sit in the cab of an HGV and see blind spots and the view the drivers have for yourself. A member of the Lambeth Sustainable Travel Team will be at each event so come and say hi and find out what other great things we are doing for cyclists and potential cyclists this year.

The events take place every Wednesday from 5.30-7.30pm (weather permitting). A full list of dates and locations can be found www.lambeth.gov.uk/drbike
