Comment on Priory Lane cycle route proposals
Published: Wednesday 17th January 18
The council is proposing to alter the layout of the cycle lane in Roehampton’s Priory Lane, and is seeking the views of local people.
Priory Lane is part of both the local and the national cycle route network and is used daily by more than a thousand cyclists, as well as being a popular route with motorists.
There is a footway on one side of the road only, and a cycle track takes up half of it. The cycle route is diverted through Bank Lane and Roehampton Gate.
The proposals would see a dedicated northbound cycle lane installed along the whole of Priory Lane, leaving the entire footpath for pedestrians. Southbound cycles will be integrated with motor traffic. Cycle-friendly speed tables and junctions would be installed to encourage motorists to keep to the 20mph limit.
The council’s transport spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “This route is popular with cyclists but we feel it could be safer for them and for pedestrians. Before we do anything we want to know what local residents think of the plans. Your views will be taken into consideration before any final proposals are published.”
