Lambeth Council is working with its partners Transport for London (TfL), on this consultation. We would like to know your views on the proposed changes to provide the new cycle route through the Cavendish Road and Estreham Road areas which forms a section of Q5 Waterloo to Croydon.

The Lambeth section of Quietway 5 see map route starts at Baylis Road through to Tooting Bec Common and extends to the border of London Borough of Croydon. The London Borough of Wandsworth, London Borough of Croydon, and Transport for London are either consulting at the same time as us, or have concluded their consultations for their sections of the cycle route.

What are Quietways?

Quietways will be a network of high quality, well signed cycle routes throughout London, mostly using backstreets. The routes will link key destinations and are designed to appeal to new and existing people that cycle who want to use quieter, low-traffic routes. Quietways will complement other cycling initiatives in London, such as the Cycle Superhighways.

How does this affect me?

Lambeth is proposing changes to two locations along the route, please see the proposed changes and designs at the links below.

Cavendish Road

It is planned that Quietway 5 cycle route would pass through the location below, and we would like to know your views on the proposed changes for these sections of the route:

  • Install raised tables at the junction of Cavendish Road and Cathles Road and the junction of Cavendish Road and Kenilford Road
  • Introduce cycle friendly speeds humps along the length of Cavendish Road (see design below for approximate locations)
  • Build out footways at the junction of Cavendish Road/Old Devonshire Road and Cavendish Road/Weir Road
  • Raised junction entry treatment at Old Devonshire Road
  • Raise the existing zebra crossing on Emmanuel Road
