Cyclist in trafficThe Lambeth branch of the London Cycling Campaign is to press Lambeth council to introduce measures such as child-friendly segregated cycle tracks on Loughborough Road and measures to reduce traffic on Hinton Road that will make the roads safer and continue to encourage more people to walk and cycle in the Loughborough Junction area.

Lambeth Cyclists was responding to the council’s announcement that the six-month trial closure of Loughborough Road and surrounding roads will end after three months.

The cyclists said research from the trial showed that the closures had successfully increased cycling and pedestrian journeys and increased appreciation of the opportunities to reduce the “domination” of motorised traffic and pollution.

They welcomed the decision to continue the trial preventing motor traffic rat-running through Calais Street and Padfield Road.
