Question

I have been informed that two proposed sections of 20mph along the route of CS5 in Southwark, one in central Peckham and the other in central Camberwell east along Camberwell Church St, have now been removed by TfL. This is after a consultant's report recommended that these two sections were made 20mph. Will you ensure these 20mph sections are reinstated to ensure the safety of cyclists?

CS5 is currently in the preliminary design stage and TfL hopes to finalise design by summer 2011. Therefore, no firm decisions have been taken.

The report referred to is the Cycle SuperHighways Implementation Plan (CHIP), which is prepared as part of the preliminary design phase for each route. The CHIP recorded that 20mph zones in certain areas were an aspiration for some stakeholders. TfL is considering these suggestions. However, the final decision will need to account for the individual circumstances of the local area, as well as the needs of all road users and local residents and businesses.
