Monitoring of the trial shows that traffic has reduced by 6,100 vehicles a day. Traffic has increased by 7% on Leigham Vale. Cycling has increased and air quality outside schools is within legal limits.
If the LTN is made permanent there will be improvements planned to boundary roads to improve cycling and walking, road layouts, signal timings, and green screens at schools
Social distancing will remain for some time. Lambeth council is adapting some hot spots where social distancing is difficult in order to make walking safer. One example is the pavement under Herne Hill bridge which has already been widened –see photo.
Please help by telling the council about places where busy pavements are too narrow to keep 2m apart. The council will prioritize suggestions which will have the greatest impact. You can let us know your suggestions by getting in touch with your local councillors or use this online map:
