Proposed walking and cycling designs in Burntwood Lane

Closed 15 Jan 2023

Opened 5 Dec 2022

Overview

Wandsworth Council is looking to improve the walking and cycling environment along Burntwood Lane.

The latest design standards have been used to assess the existing condition of Burntwood Lane for walking and cycling and determine the design changes needed.

For the majority of residents, walking and cycling are essential forms of transport to get to work, school, the shops, and to visit friends and family and access public transport.  Making walking (including where using a wheelchair or buggy) and cycling in Wandsworth enjoyable, attractive and safe for all is a key objective for the Council.

As well as improving routes to schools and colleges in the area, the scheme is anticipated to bring economic benefits to local businesses through improved walking and cycling connectivity between Trinity Road and Garratt Lane. Improved walking and cycling facilities are also linked to reduced traffic volumes in the long term.

The scheme has the following objectives:

  • Improve road safety by reducing speed and the number and severity of collisions
  • Improve the quality of existing cycle facilities and provide new facilities where possible
  • Improve pedestrian priority and accessibility, including making it easier to cross the road and access schools
