While TfL have taken great steps forward with Cycle SuperHighways designs of late, the Wandsworth Cycling Campaign and London Cycling Campaign are urging them not to take a serious step backwards with Balham High Road.
Anyone who rides through the area regularly or uses CS7 can show their lack of support and add suitable improvements they’d like to see into question 2. The online survey takes just a minute to complete.
Wandsworth Cycling Campaign is calling for proper segregated tracks for cyclists – which there is clearly space for; and bus stop bypasses. They’d also like side road designs that give clear priority to cyclists and slow turning traffic at Brook Close, Trinity Crescent and Streathbourne Road; loading, disabled and parking bays to be between carriage and track to protect cyclists and avoid vehicles crossing; and a better signalised junction design at Ritherdon Road that eliminates hook risks.
The consultation closes on the 15th November. Let's ask TfL to do better!
If you don’t have time to write anything, or would like to use a suggested LCC comment for question 2 on the consultation (the important one), you can use the following:
