Members of the Croydon Cycling Campaign have joined forces with “20s plenty” and the “Grange Hill Road Community” to back the council’s plans to introduce 20mph speed limits on residential roads in Croydon North. We have been speaking to residents outside the rail station in Thornton Heath, handing out flyers and delivering leaflets to houses in the area. We’ve met residents as young as 6 and as old as 93 and the response has been overwhelmingly supportive. We’ve listened to people’s concerns about speeding and noise on residential streets and helped them complete the council’s […]

Photos Sourced from : Alternative DfT and A View From The Cycle Path As the council moves towards legalising cycling in Park Hill Park, I’ve been asked if the Croydon Cycling Campaign thinks this is an important change worth fighting for. It’s a difficult question to field, as opening up the route via Park Hill is hardly going to open up the flood gates to hundreds of people cycling through it into Croydon. However, context is key, and given the context, it’s crucial. The Sustrans Connect2 route aims to connect up green spaces across the […]

The CCC opposes this aim on the following grounds It is unclear why the scheme is necessary as we know that the current road […]

The Croydon Cycling Campaign has welcomed the ambition and principle of the proposed changes to the double roundabouts at the end of Crystal Palace Parade (consultation now closed), but has said they fall short of the needed safety standard. You can see the plans for yourself here. The Croydon Cycling Campaign was delighted to see TFL and Southwark put forward some plans for two adjacent Dutch roundabouts, utilising the latest tools available to junction designers including the new ‘zoucan’ (zebra/toucan) crossing. However, on closer inspection the plans introduce new dangers and fail to address the […]

On Tuesday, 16 September 2014, something out of the ordinary happened in Croydon. A debate took place in the Council chambers on the merits of introducing a measure that would make our streets safer, cut the number and severity of casualties and slash the costs of bloody incidents that in 2013 cost us dearly, in both human and financial terms. That magic bullet is 20 mph.   According to campaign group, 20’s Plenty for us, other London boroughs, such as Camden, Islington and the City of London have adopted 20mph as their speed limit on […]
