A small section of blue surfacing on Cycle Superhighway 7 (CS7) was re-laid at Stockwell in February 2017.

Following concerns raised on 23 July about slippery blue surfacing on CS7 at Stockwell, Transport for London's (TfL's) contractors visited the next day to inspect both the north- and southbound cycle lanes. 

Their inspection did not raise any concerns about the surfacing, but TfL will continue to monitor this and carry out skid-resistance testing where necessary to make sure that it remains in good repair.
