These are routes that link communities, businesses and destinations across London in one cycle network.

Results Updated 12 Aug 2016

In October 2015, together with the London Borough of Lambeth, we consulted on proposals for six schemes in the Clapham Common area on the Quietway 5 route between Waterloo and Croydon. This report summarises the background and responses to consultation on one of those schemes on the Transport for London Road Network – a proposal to install a new signalised toucan crossing on Long Road in order to improve cycle and pedestrian connections to Clapham Common.

To view the Lambeth led consultations please visit their website at http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/proposed-changes-to-quietway-5-cycle-route-waterloo-to-croydon-series-2.

We received 171 responses to the consultation on (A3) Long Road, of which 147 (86 per cent) supported or partially supported our proposals, 20 (12 per cent) said they did not/were unsure, and four (two per cent) said they had no opinion.

Having considered all responses to the consultation and reviewed our proposals, we intend to proceed with the scheme design that was consulted on. Whilst we acknowledge the concerns of a minority of respondents, we are satisfied our proposal provides a safe and convenient option for cyclists and pedestrians to cross Long Road. In response to suggestions received in consultation we have included additional signage and paving to better indicate to pedestrians and cyclists the extent of shared space on Long Road.

Construction of the scheme is planned to begin in autumn 2016. This is subject to a review of the final costs and available funding and coordination with other works in the area. We will write to local residents and businesses with details of the planned works.

The scheme will be delivered under the London Highways Alliance Contract (LoHAC) contract.

Update ends

Lambeth Council is working with its partners Transport for London and Sustrans on a consultation consisting of six schemes in the Clapham Common area. We would like to know your views on the proposed changes in this section of the cycle route – Q5 Waterloo to Croydon.

The Lambeth section of Quietway 5 route starts at Baylis Road and extends to the border with London Borough of Croydon at London Road.

The London Borough of Wandsworth, London Borough of Croydon, and Transport for London will consult on proposals for their sections of the cycle route at a later date.

What are Quietways?

Quietways will be a network of high-quality, well-signed cycle routes throughout London, mostly using back streets. They are aimed at new and less confident cyclists and people who would prefer to cycle at a gentler pace. Quietways will complement other cycling initiatives in London, such as the Cycle Superhighways.
