Leigham Court Road update:
As part of our commitment to build a connected network of walking and cycling links across Lambeth and improve local access we have been working to build a new cycling and walking crossing over Leigham Court Road connecting Mount Nod Road and Leigham Avenue, part of the Peckham to Streatham Healthy Route. Bus stops are now back to normal and we are working with our contractors to open the crossing this week. The remaining works, including some lining and snagging, are due to be completed by the end of June. Thank you for your patience while these works have been completed.
Other Low Traffic Neighbourhoods:
Lambeth are introducing two new LTNs in Brixton Hill and Streatham Wells. The Streatham Wells LTN will be bounded by Streatham High Road, Streatham Common North, and Leigham Court Road. Early stages of engagement have been taking place, and potential designs are being discussed at the current time.
