Between 21 July and 14 September 2016, we consulted on proposals for introducing new sections of bus lane and other highway modifications in Brixton Hill and St Matthew’s Road as part of our London-wide Bus Priority Programme.
We received 227 responses to the consultation, with 70 per cent in favour of the proposals. The breakdown of responses was as follows: 44 per cent strongly supported, 26 per cent supported, 13 per cent strongly opposed and 4 per cent opposed the proposals. Furthermore 8 per cent said they neither supported nor opposed the proposals, and 5 per cent did not answer the question.
Having considered all responses to the consultation, we have decided to go ahead with the scheme with only minor changes. We are reviewing the scope of works at the top of Brixton Hill in the light of our review of the size and position of the trees and utility pipes and cables under the road surface.
We plan to start construction in summer 2017, and will write to affected properties before starting any works.
