TfL is asking people for feedback on its latest series of upgrades to the CS8 cycle route between Chelsea Bridge and Wandsworth Town Centre.

Trial changes to the route include protected space for people cycling, wider cycle lanes and lower speed limits.

Cycle counts carried out by TfL along CS8 show that up to 2,650 people are using the route every day, with an average increase of 30% on weekdays compared to the 2014-19 average.

This is despite a drop in the overall number of journeys being made across London during the pandemic.

People are being invited to submit their feedback on the changes until 17 November.

TfL says creating enough space for people to walk and cycle safely is vital to ensuring a sustainable and healthy recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic for everybody who lives and works in London.

Will Norman, London’s walking and cycling commissioner, said: “We are continuing to do all we can to support the increasing numbers of Londoners who are walking and cycling, and help prevent a damaging car-led recovery from the pandemic.

“Reducing road danger through upgrades, introducing 20mph speed limits and making changes to road layouts is central to this.

“I encourage everyone who lives, works or visits the areas within the CS8 trial changes to have their say to ensure that their feedback is taken on board going forward.”
