TFL Parking/Cycling Consultation
6 Nov 2019
Transport for London, with Hackney Council are planning to create a segregated cycle lane around Lea Bridge Roundabout which will lead to more public transport delays, less parking for our service users and elderly congregants who attend prayers, school and events everyday and on other Islamic occasions such as Eid, Ramadhan or Taraweeh.
We are not against improving the health of local residents but we think that the case for segregated cycle lanes has not been made and the local community have not been adequately consulted. The roundabout is not an accident hotspot, nor does it have many cyclists using it and the quality criteria for cycle lanes does not appear to have been met nor has the methodology been published. TfL are also proposing to close access to certain roads and limit the width of the road.
We also hold the view that TfL should use existing cycling infrastructure as a route between Dalston and Walthamstow as many cyclists already bypass the roundabout in favour of cutting through Milfields Park and going via Powerscroft Road (Quiet Way 2).
