Lambeth council is hosting a forum open to residents on Thursday 16 March asking for their views about the future of the borough's cycling strategy.
The event will be held in the Karibu Centre, Brixton (SW9 7PH) between 6pm and 9pm, and is part of the Health Streets programme aimed at improving local streets. Talking about the event, Cllr Jennifer Brathwaite, the cabinet member with responsibility for cycling policy, said:
The first meeting will be an opportunity for you to help shape the development of our Cycle Network Strategy. This purpose of the strategy is to further improve Lambeth for people cycling by assessing the existing road network (including cycle routes). It will then propose strategic and local improvements to make the borough safer and easier to navigate by cycle (for a more detailed overview see the attachment). The workshop will look at the work that has taken place so far and give you a chance to comment. Your feedback will help us develop proposals for new prioritised network interventions across the borough, to meet current and future demand.
Vassall councillors have been supporting cycling improvements in Vassall, including measures to improve streets around Myatts Field Park, install more bike hangers for residents and recently calling for Satender bike docking stations to be extended further south torward Brixton.
