Quietway for Turney Rd – Street meeting Sat 18 April 10.30am in the SCST Pavilion.

The Mayor of London and the London Borough Councils are developing cycling strategies.

The Mayor of London has set out his Vision for Cycling programme, amongst which are two key elements:

  • Two flagship segregated Cycle Superhighways, one East-West from Tower Hill to Westbourne Terrace, and one North-South, from Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross.
  • A new network of ‘Quietways’ – direct, continuous, fully-signposted routes on peaceful side streets, running far into the suburbs, and aimed at people put off by cycling in traffic.

A Quietway is proposed to run along Turney Road.

What is a Quietway?  According to the Mayor’s Vision for Cycling, Quietways comprise: “A cross-London network of high quality guided routes being created on low-traffic back streets and other routes so that different kinds of cyclists can choose the routes which suit them.

Unlike the old London Cycle Network, Quietways will be direct. They will be better surfaced. They will be clearly signed, mostly on the road itself, making it impossible to lose your way. Each route will be delivered as a whole, not piecemeal and they will not give up at the difficult places”.

The proposals are at an early stage and the precise proposals are not yet known.

The Committee of TRRA is addressing this issue and wishes to develop a response, to both Southwark and Lambeth Councils, that has the support of residents.  We would welcome your views and invite you to come along.

We will also be able to inform you about the Green Spine Initiative.

The Green Spine Initiative Is a community approach to enhance the general street environment and encourage wildlife through a series of mini community projects along Turney Road

Both require some serious consideration and hope you can join us. If you cannot make the meeting but wish to make comments then please email: michael@cama.clara.net
