We are working with Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG) to improve part of Cambria Road between Coldharbour Lane and Northway Road.
Why Cambria Road?
Cambria Road is an important walking and cycling link to and from Ruskin Park and King’s College Hospital. It could potentially be part of a ‘London Greenway’ walking and cycling route connecting Ruskin Park, Elam Gardens, Myatt’s Fields and Kennington Park. The ‘London Greenway’ is a Sustrans initiative to provide enhanced, safer walking and cycling routes in and between green spaces.
An improved Cambria Road would also have the potential to connect the two sides of Coldharbour Lane.
What is proposed?
Lambeth Council and LJAG want to make changes that would transform Cambria Road into an attractive street for walking and cycling. There will be no changes to parking places or restrictions.
Make Cambria Road look better and feel safer with:
- Improved cycle and walking access
- Brighter lighting
- Artworks and artistic lighting
- Bollards to replace the existing gate
- Tree planting and greenery at the bridge entrances.
- A single level (no kerb) surface under the bridge and in front of Bengeworth Road with block paving in the area under the bridge.
Make Cambria Road more attractive for walking and cycling with:
- Cambria Road to be two-way for cycles between Southwell Road and Coldharbour Lane, though remaining one-way for motor vehicles.
- Repaving of all footways
- A renewed raised table at the junction with Southwell Road with better paving and crossings
- Tree planting where possible along Cambria Road
- Pedestrian-friendly junction improvements where Cambria Road meets Coldharbour Lane
- Block-effect paving in the parking bay areas to give the appearance of much wider footways. The amount of parking provision will not change.
Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG)
LJAG is a community-led neighbourhood action group working to improve Loughborough Junction and its environment for people who live and work in the area. The Loughborough Junction masterplan builds on the work of ‘7 Bridges’ - an LJAG project that aims to create a sense of place, community and identity.
