Last autumn, Transport for London consulted on changes to bus lanes on Brixton Hill and on Streatham Hill. Now TfL has issued its responses to the issues raised in the consultations.
- Calls for protected cycling facilities along the A23 and at major junctions
- Calls for bus lane operating hours to be extended to improve cycling safety
Despite the arguments for safer cycling, the plans will proceed with only minor changes, which will leave this key route unappealing as a cycle option for most people. This presents a real challenge to Lambeth's cycle network and the Council and local councillors must press TfL for better conditions.
