In the Kennington area near Oval tube station cyclists have managed to overturn two decisions –to not reinstall a cycle lane and to install a new barrier on LCN route 3-which made the roads more unsafe for cyclists and pedestrians.
Both cases relate primarily to Transport for London roads. Both were cases where we or other cycling bodies knew nothing of the proposals and so were not able to question/ offer feedback on the developments.
We would like to think that if these had been Lambeth Council proposals the new cycling strategy would have prevented them getting beyond the planning stage.

TfL frustration 2: Barrier makes temporary appearance on LCN 3 cycle route
