Southwark Council meets London Cycling Campaign's 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' pledge

Southwark Council is the latest borough to sign up to the London Cycling Campaign 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' Pledge.

The council and its contractors will now work towards implementing the changes to ensure their HGV operations meet the best practice standards set out in the LCC pledge and monitored by the Transport for London FORS scheme. 


The final decision was made after last weeks Cycling Joint Steering Group meeting chaired by Councillor Barrie Hargrove the Cabinet Member for Transport, Environment and Re-cycling.

Southwark Cyclists with LCC met senior council officers to discuss the details of the pledge. The council team included officers from the Sustainable Services, Contracts, Transport Planning and Sustainable Transport departments in the council. 

Concillor Hargrove, Southwark welcomed gaining green light status for the 'Safer Lorries, Safer Cycling' pledge:

"Southwark council is delighted that LCC has recognised our commitment  to improve the safe operation of large lorries managed by the council and by its contractors. 
"We are confident that this will reduce danger to cyclists and other road users as well as reducing risk for our own employees."

 

Pledge details


LCC's lorry campaigner Charlie Lloyd said: "We have answered all the detailed questions from the council and are in discussion with their new highways contractor Conways."
We are confident that Southwark will be able to deliver the pledge commitments to a realistic timetable"

London cycling campaign is working with other councils to help them with the details required to give the political leadership required to promise to improve the safe opearation of all their services.
