Demand Protected Cycle Lanes in Wandsworth!

This campaign has always demanded safer roads for cycling in London, especially protected cycle lanes on main roads to make safe cycling accessible to all. Unfortunately although there has been progress in places, we are still seeing many schemes which fail to provide safe space for cycling.

Balham High Road scheme just not good enough

We are supporting calls for TfL to do better and revise the plans to include:
  • Continental style protected cycle lanes (as recently opened in Vauxhall, Embankment and Oval)
  • Bus stop cycle lane bypasses

You can read more about the failings of the scheme on the Traffik in Tooting blog here.

The scheme is currently out for consultation - please respond to TfL's consultation before it closes at the end of the week!

This scheme was highlighted to Save Our Cyclists by another 38degrees campaign - Let's make Tooting High Street safe for all. Please sign their petition if you want to keep up to date.

There are also a series of related 38degrees petitions aimed at specific improvements around the Wandsworth area our supporters may also be interested in: Wandsworth Cyclists' 38degrees petitions and campaigns.
