Following on from the change to two way working on Brixton Hill in November 2009 –a move that Lambeth Cyclists have been advocating for 10+ years- we have had some feedback from members expressing concern about the cycle friendliness of the new road layout.
One or two ‘hotspots’ for cyclists have been identified, most notably going southbound past Coldharbour Lane junction. If you’ve experienced similar issues or other problems with the new roads layout contact Transport for London – email firstname.lastname@example.org, and if please copy in Lambeth Cyclists so that we can gather all of the responses together to gain an idea of the problems that cyclists are experiencing with the new layout. We will be carrying out a rush-hour cycle count and review of the area in April as a follow-up to our original Brixton Triangle report completed in 1999. We hope that by giving constructive feedback we can make the area more cycle friendly.
