Wanted to alert you to the imminent removal of the cycle lane on Heygate Street, detailed here:
The document is easily missed as it was advertised as a 'minor public realm improvement', rather disingenuous if you ask me!
The plan is to remove the compulsory cycle lane on this route in order to build out a new pavement while the existing walking route is blocked by the redevelopment.
I've spoken with Cll Colley about it, it is not the Councils preferred option, which would be to narrow the road to two lanes, but TfL are being intransigent.
The lane is part of the existing Elephant and Castle bypass, the London Cycle Network and will be all the more important and the tipper trucks for the demolition start their work.
If you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
quoting reference PR/PD/TMO1112-028 by 22 December and object on these grounds, and support the councils preferred option, that'd be great.
