Residents encouraged to respond to Quietways consultation

PUBLISHED: 12:40 16 January 2018 | UPDATED: 16:54 16 January 2018

Residents, cyclists, walkers and other interested groups are being encouraged to respond to Bromley Borough Council’s Quietways consultation by February 2.

Walking and cycling routes that have been identified where traffic is generally quieter, or ‘Quietways’, are found primarily using ‘lightly trafficked back streets’ through parks and alongside waterways.

They are designed to appeal particularly to new and inexperienced cyclists.

The routes will form part of a London wide network of Quietways and Superhighways.

Councillor William Huntington-Thresher said: “Quietway routes are designed to provide safe and attractive links to shops, stations, schools, workplaces and destinations throughout London.

We are particularly interested to have views on the Lower Sydenham to Bromley route and the Kent House to Greenwich route, and I would encourage anyone who would like to comment to visit www.bromley.gov.uk/quietways and complete the online form by February 2”.

The Lower Sydenham to Bromley Quietway will upgrade the section of the existing London Cycle Network route 27 between New Beckenham and Bromley town centre.

The Greenwich to Kent House route will upgrade a section of the existing National Cycle Network Route 21.

“Locally we are designing Quietways to provide an easygoing alternative for those residents wishing to give cycling a go or to walk and cycle more. WThe emphasis is on routes to local amenities which are unthreatening and could also appeal to families with younger children.” added Mr Huntington-Thresher.

Anyone interested in commenting or finding out more should go to www.bromley.gov.uk/quietways, where they can also download the consultation drawings packs.
