The Council has just launched a public consultation on the introduction of cycle ‘quietways’ through the borough.
Cycle quietways are a London wide initiative aimed at providing safe and accessible routes for cyclists off the busy main roads. It is hoped that this will encourage more people to use their bikes, particularly for non-commuting purposes.
One of the proposed routes (quietways 4 – Clapham Common to Wimbledom) passes through Earlsfield via Magdalen Road, Swaby Road, Waynflete Street and Trewint Street. The route then continues to Wimbledon via the Wandle Trail.
The proposal contains a number of changes to road markings, layouts and access. Some of the significant changes to Earlsfield roads are as follows (see also map below):
