  • East Sydenham Healthy Neighbourhood

    Created by Alex Raha // 1 thread

    East Sydenham is changing

    A key target of both the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Lewisham’s Transport Strategy is for 80% of all journeys in London to be made by sustainable means of transport (walking, cycling and public transport) by 2041. To achieve this, we have to create street environments where traffic is reduced, and where vulnerable road users, including children and the elderly, feel more comfortable making journeys on foot or by bike. 

    What are the issues are most important for us to address?

  • St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School Street Consultation

    Compton Street (from Agdon Street to Goswell Road) and Cyrus Street - School Street Scheme

    St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School

    Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around St. Peter & St. Paul Catholic Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.


    What is a School Street Scheme?

    A School Street Scheme is where a road with a school temporarily closes to become a pedestrian and cycle zone during the school’s opening and closing times. By temporarily closing roads outside schools this will help to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates as well as make it easier and safer for children to get to and from school.

    What is proposed for Compton Street and Cyrus Street?

    The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Compton Street (from Agdon Street to Goswell Road) and Cyrus Street into a School Street Scheme between 8.30am to 9.15am plus 2.45pm to 3.45pm during school term time.
    Vehicles will not be able to enter the streets between these times unless they have been given an exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register for an exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends.

    Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.

  • Safe crossing of Alloway Road for new school

    Created by Cycling Dumfries // 1 thread

    When Schools for the Future moves all of the Lochside schools onto one site, there will need to be a safe crossing for pedestrians and cyclists to the new site. At present there is a traffic island, but crossing with current levels of traffic is already difficult with children. It is also near a lorry training site so there are learner HGV drivers.

    Lochside primary school currently has one of the highest cycling rates of all schools in the county - and the area is one of the more deprived areas in Dumfries, so car ownership levels are low
