Lambeth Council is working with its partners Transport for London and Sustrans on this consultation (four schemes) – Baylis Road/Hercules Road. We would like to know your views on the proposed changes in these sections of the cycle route – Q5 Waterloo to Croydon.

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

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 link key destinations, following back street routes, through parks, along waterways and tree-lined streets. The routes will be well signed for ease of navigation and appeal to both new and existing cyclists looking for a more relaxed journey. Quietways will complement other cycling initiatives in London, such as the Cycle Superhighways.
