Do you share the disappointment of cyclists in Southwark that it took over a year to complete maintenance work on Peckham Road? How do you respond to cyclists' fears that TfL are compromising cyclist safety by failing to deliver an effective and efficient road maintenance programme?

The surface of Peckham Road was identified as needing resurfacing around two years ago. However, these works were postponed to enable Thames Water to undertake significant mains work in the vicinity. The Thames Water works are nearing completion and a scheme to resurface Peckham Road and also provide improved facilities for cyclists is planned later this year.

It was appropriate to undertake these utility works before the road was resurfaced, rather than resurface the road only for us to dig it up shortly afterwards.
