Creating Cleaner, Calmer Public Spaces
We are delighted that our petition to reduce the speed limit on Garratt Lane, signed by over 700 residents, was successful. A 20mph speed limit will make Garratt Lane a safe, calmer place for people to walk and cycle, as well as making it quieter for those who live along the road.
We also supported and handed in a petition to the Council for a pedestrian crossing outside or near to Floreat School and have lobbied to get air quality monitoring installed by Penwith Road. We have been told that first readings will be out any week now.
A temporary cycle lane is being installed along Garratt Lane to provide safe links to the cycle lane in Tooting and make cycling safer for more children and adults. We support the roll out of cycle lanes across the borough to make sure everyone can get cheap access to transport and exercise. We’ll continue to push for more bike hangars, as lack of storage is a huge barrier to cycling. Please get in touch with us if you need support getting a bike hangar installed on your street.
And more good news – the ANPR cameras are finally in place and operational on Tranmere Road as part of the School Street programme. Parents and residents have worked tirelessly to volunteer on the street while the cameras were on order.
