Act now: changes to Brixton Hill and Streatham Hill

Transport for London is consulting on changes to bus lanes and some junctions on Brixton Hill and on Streatham Hill.

Respond by 14 September to give your views on changes that could see bus lanes extended in length, width and time at different places over Brixton Hill and Streatham Hill.

Disappointingly, segregated cycle lanes are not part of the plans, despite the space available.There are no reasonable alternative routes between Brixton and Streatham and the road is heavily used by cyclists.

The August meeting of Lambeth Cyclists supported the view of Andrew Gilligan when he was London’s cycling commissioner, that this stretch of road was suitable for and in need of segregated cycling. As an absolute minimum, the road should have wider, continuous and 24-hour bus lanes.
