For those who haven't yet had a chance to see, the Sustrans ideas were outlined this morning at Rosendale School (and will be again on the evening of 9/12). It's not clear how much was a menu of different ideas, and how much would be cumulative, but what was proposed included (for the stretch of Rosendale Road from the S Circular to Park Hall Road):
- "sinusoidal" bumps across the road, insread of "cushions"
- "advisory" cycle lanes on each side of the road, INSIDE (ie on the road side of) the parked cars. So no reduction in parking. "Advisory" apparently means no cameras or penalties for traffic going into them. The benefit is said to include a narrowing of the road (but still it was said wide enough for 2 lorries to pass), thus slowing traffic.
- a zebra crossing outside the shops, combined with timed parking places by the shops.
- another zebra crossing a few yards south of the "dog-leg" part of Carson Road (it wasn't explained what the benefit of this would be, and it would result in the loss of quite a few parking places.
Feedback was encouraged (as it will be at Wednesday's session). Thereafter, Lambeth will draw up proposals, for conultation in January.
Two of our Councillors, Anna and Max, were there when I was, and were keen to engage with residents.
