Transport for London have released their proposals to make the road junctions around Oval tube station safer for cyclists.
Following consultation with LCC and others the four junctions in this area, which link major roads including Kennington Park Road, Clapham Road, Brixton Road and Camberwell New Road, will be made safer for cyclists.
The plans propose restrictions on motor vehicles, separate traffic light phases for cyclists, segregated cycle lanes and measures to reduce speeds all of which will bring benefits for cyclists and, we hope, encourage more people to cycle in Lambeth.
Transport for London have launched a consultation on the proposals – see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/betterjunctions/oval and have arranged two meetings to discuss the proposals with cyclists: Thursday 17 July 2014: Montgomery Hall, Kennington Oval, SE11 3-7pm and Saturday 19 July 2014 at the Oval Farmers’ Market, St Marks Church, SE11 11am-3pm. The closing date for the consultation is 17 August 2014.
Lambeth Cyclists welcome these proposals. We believe that the changes will make the area much more cycle friendly, create real space for cycling and encourage more people in Lambeth to cycle.
