Opened 23 Nov 2015

Results updated 20 Dec 2016

Response rate: Dog kennel Hill/Champion Hill junction - 3.7% (81 responses out of 2200)

General support % in favour: 75%

Camberwell Grove to Champion Hill: The original proposals that went through public consultation are not viable, and therefore the route will be implemented with no traffic management measures on this section. Although currently no measures are proposed along this section, the council is committed to exploring all options to improve conditions for all road users along this corridor.



What is a Quietway

Quietways are a network of bike routes for less confident cyclists using mainly low-traffic back streets. The routes are not just for current cyclists, but are for people who have always been put off cycling by the thought of sharing the road with high volumes of cars, vans, buses and lorries. Introducing Quietways forms an integral part of the Mayor of London’s vision for cycling and the council’s objective to significantly increase the number of residents using cycling as their preferred mode of transport, particularly for local journeys.
