TfL’s Quietway Scheme Continues to Cause Anger Amongst Residents

Many residents have contacted us in response to the recent consultation, registering their objection to aspects of TfL’s Quietway scheme, which will encourage cyclists to use the roads of Vincent Square Ward to escape main roads. The scheme will also encourage “rat running” by introducing two-way traffic on Douglas Street. 

This follows the introduction of the Cycle Superhighway on Vauxhaull Bridge Road and changes to traffic flows in Vincent Square Ward. 

Councillor Danny Chalkley, commented “We have been overwhelmed with objections from residents concerned about the impact of the scheme, if implemented. Your Conservative Councillors have raised concerns about the scheme since it was first considered and will ensure that resident’s views are fully taken into account by the Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Parking”. 

He continued, “We objected to the Superhighway from the outset and continue to press TfL to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists at the crossing by the White Swan pub before someone gets seriously hurt”.
