Question

Local cyclists have expressed frustration at the recently-published plans for Quietways in Southwark which include many changes which appear either cosmetic or unnecessary, as well as a few which actually improved safety. Will you ask TfL to ensure that in future councils co-produce plans with local cycling groups to ensure cyclists' priorities are addressed in this programme?

The Quietways Programme is one of the key infrastructure delivery programmes in the Cycling Vision Portfolio which will primarily be delivered on sections of highway owned and managed by the London Boroughs and other managing authorities.  Although the highway or managing authority is leading on design development and consultation of their schemes, TfL is working closely with them to support their local consultations, and is actively encouraging engagement with local cycle groups as well as other users, residents and businesses. Schemes at intersections with the Transport for London Road Network ("red routes") will be designed and delivered by TfL, and TfL will consult on proposals in due course.
