Over the summer Lambeth Cyclists have continued to work with Transport for London on Cycle Route Implementation and Stakeholder Plans (CRISPs) across the borough – most recently on the route along the A3 from Clapham Common to Elephant and Castle. CRISPs allow TfL’s consultants to gain first hand knowledge of what conditions are like on the ground by cycling along the route with those of us who use it on a regular basis.
The results of the CRISP are used to assess the effectiveness of existing cycling facilities and to inform proposals for how the route could be improved. As you might imagine the A3 CRISP highlighted improvements that could be made to the Stockwell one way system, the area outside Oval tube station and problems that cyclists can have accessing Elephant and Castle.
The CRISP programme will continue in the autumn by looking at the TfL red routes in the South of the borough (generally the larger roads such as the A23, A3, A205 etc) over the next few months. So if you use a Red Route as part of your regular cycle journey and would like to contribute to this process let us know. Details of the CRISP arrangements will be circulated on the email group or contact Philip Loy.
