Answered By: 
The Mayor

The sections of Quietway 5 between Clapham Common and Tooting Bec Common have been completed. Owing to Tooting Bec Common's protected status, schemes through here require further consultation and statutory approvals. The London Borough of Wandsworth is leading this work, and delivery is dependent on the borough's programme for gaining the required approvals.

In the meantime, Transport for London is progressing an alternative alignment along Tooting Bec Road to allow Quietway 5 to launch sooner. This scheme is due to start construction in 2019.
