Cycling and walking in Camberwell meeting this Saturday 30 January 2016

This Saturday, 30 January 2016, Camberwell Community Council will be discussing walking and cycling. Join the meeting at 1pm at the Institute of Psychiatry, De Crespigny Park, SE5 8AF to help make Camberwelll better for walking and cycling.

Camberwell  straddles both Lambeth and Southwark and whilst Camberwell town centre is in Southwark around 25% of the SE5 area is in Lambeth and many of us visit or pass through Camberwell regularly  including many children who cycle through Camberwell en route to schools in Southwark.

Camberwell Community Council meeting 30 Jan 2016 flyerCurrently Camberwell town centre is cycle and pedestrian unfriendly with a six lane urban motorway running through the area, dangerous turnings such as that into Orpheus Street and a lack of dedicated cycle facilities. Crowded pavements and dangerous roads making walking hard too. It could be so much better and this meeting is a chance to help Southwark make Camberwell more people friendly.


  • Help redesign Camberwell town centre to make it more people friendly
  • Comment on the proposed route of Quietway 7 from Burgess Park to Champion Hill in Camberwell
  • Find out about the new Southwark Plan and what it means for Camberwell

For further information see the Camberwell CC section of the Southwark website Contact Fitzroy Lewis - 020 7525 3084 fitzroy.lewis@southwark.gov.uk

Vauxhall Cross information drop-in meeting this evening St Annes and All Saints Church, Miles Street SW8

Transport for London will be holding an information drop in meeting this evening, Thursday  7 January 2016,  4-8pm at St Anne's and All Saints Church, Miles Street, SW8 1RL (corner with South Lambeth Road). Find out more about the plans for Vauxhall Cross.

New Vauxhall Cross plans
In November 2015 Transport for London released plans for transforming Vauxhall Cross including removing the dangerous cycle-unfriendly one-way system.

Following on from the initial consultation, and years of campaigning by local groups such as Lambeth Cyclists, detailed plans have been produced.

These plans propose that current roads making up the one-way system (Parry Street, Wandsworth Road, Kennington Lane, South Lambeth Road) will be made two-way with fully segregated cycle lanes and improved cycle and pedestrian crossings.

A new public space will be created to give a sense of place and make it more than just a transport interchange. The current bus station is set to undergo changes as part of the roads configuration process.

These proposals come about as part of wider Vauxhall/ Nine Elams/ Battersea developments which over the next few years will see an additional 18,000 new homes being built as well as office developments which it is estimated will lead to 25,000 new jobs locally. TfL anticipate that the redesign will be in place by 2018.

See below for further details of what the proposals will mean for cyclists. TfL are carrying out a consultation on the scheme - see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/vauxhall-cross - as well as running three local information drop-in meetings to find out more. The closing date for the consultation is 17 January 2016. We encourage everyone with an interest in the area to have their say.


Lambeth Cyclists welcome the proposals to make Vauxhall Cross roads two-way. We will be responding to the consultation and offering our comments on the proposals as well as offering our vision for the future of a cycle and people-friendly Vauxhall.
