After years of campaigning residents in a triangle of back streets between the the Oval and the South Lambeth Road have had a low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) start this week.
The LTN will make the roads access only for motor vehicles to stop drivers cutting through residential roads. They will make walking and cycling safer and more pleasant, with more space for social distancing and should make the Quietway 5 route much better.
The changes went live yesterday when covers came off no entry signs and cameras were fitted. Planters were being built today and other details will be finished overs the coming days – for example the planters filled. Drivers ignoring the no entry signs and driving around the planters will receive an advisory letter for the first few weeks before fines are used later.
