Lambeth Council is consulting on allowing two-way cycling on all one-way streets.
Lambeth Council says:
Lambeth Council’s policy is to encourage cycling by making it an attractive transport option to all types of people. The bicycle can be given a major advantage over motorised modes by making cycle access more direct and extensive. Allowing two-way cycling in one-way streets is one way this is achieved, delivering the following benefits for cyclists
- improved local access
- reduced journey distances and times
- more route choices.
About 40 streets in Lambeth have already been converted from standard one-way streets to, one-way streets that allow legal two-way cycling. There are still about 70 one-way street in the borough where cyclist cannot legally cycle in both directions. We are working to bring two-way cycling to all one-way streets in Lambeth.
Please support the plans but add what additional measures would be beneficial, for example a ban on large lorries using a street as a cut through or better signage.
