TfL Consultation on the Stockwell Gyratory

Transport for London (TfL) have launched a public consultation on proposals to revise the Stockwell Gyratory road system.

Details of the Stockwell proposals and how you can respond are here: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/betterjunctions/stockwell-cross

The proposed changes include:  Removing the gyratory and simplifying the road layout ; further improving facilities for cyclists along, and leading to, the well-used Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 7 (CS7); landscaping Stockwell Memorial Garden and closing part of South Lambeth Road to create an improved public space.

However the removal of the gyratory will delay vehicular traffic. Widening of bus lanes and more provision for cyclists will also reduce road space. Unfortunately the general policy now pursued by TfL is to remove gyratory roads and the results (such as at Aldgate) has often been much increased traffic congestion and longer journey times. No cost/benefit justification is provided for such changes.

Anyone who uses this junction in Stockwell would be advised to study the proposals and made a response a.s.a.p.
