New Herne Hill junction opens

After much controversy and sharply divided local opinion the new junction at the entrance to Brockwell Park in Herne Hill has opened (it caused some controversy and tension at our 2008 GLA elections hustings and was touched on at our 2010 Council elections hustings).

The scheme will now move towards phase two which will see Railton Road partly pedestrianised and closed off as a through route. The plans for the junction promised an improved route through the junction for cyclists –we will be monitoring cyclists’ experiences of the junction and feeding back comments to Lambeth and Transport for London on this issue. If you use the junction and have any comments, positive or negative, to make on the new arrangements please email us and we will compile them and pass them on to the Council.
