Bring Sense to the Streets



This is what Blackfriars Bridge looks like rammed with thousands of cyclists trying to get a simple message to Boris: PLEASE DO SOMETHING FOR CYCLISTS SAFETY. Boris & TfL are determined to re-raise the speed limit across the bridge back to 30 (from 20 where it has been), despite it being one of the worst designed river crossings for cyclist (two have died, to my knowledge) Read more and see a video of what 2,500 cyclists look like here

It ain't very safe for pedestrians either. Getting to the bridge from Embankment is harrowing. I wonder if something as simple as Bus Lanes would have a calming effect?

Funny you should mention that ;-) The LCC plan is for a PEOPLE friendly design including pedestrians http://lcc.org.uk/pages/people-friendly-blackfriars
