Lambeth and Transport for London are consulting proposed improvements to create a ‘Quietway’ cycle route part of which would be along Turney Road, Rosendale Road, Clive Road in Norwood. The deadline for comments is 17th March and we encourage everyone to respond on a scheme which will affect many of us – resident, business, pedestrian, cyclists, bus passenger or car user. More information can be found here.
Following informal consultation last year and widespread public concern NAG have already written to Andrew Gilligan, Mayoral Adviser and Londonwide Cycling Commissioner and the Lambeth Chair of on this very matter (letter is attached), We have asked for answers to four critical questions:
1. How was Rosendale Road (including Turney Road and Clive Road etc to the south) selected over College Road?
2. What are the implications for cyclists of the selection of Rosendale Road over College Road?
3. What does the ‘concept’ as now put forward by Lambeth and TfL mean for all users of Rosendale Road (residents, cyclists, motorists, pedestrians) and how was it assessed?
4. What are the next steps for the Quietways scheme through Norwood?
