20's Plenty for Lambeth

Location

Lambeth’s road casualty figures are some of the highest in the UK. Of all the 32 boroughs in London only Westminster and Barnet have more casualties on the roads. Lambeth has the second highest casualty rate in London for both pedestrians and cyclists.

A third of the worst spots for collisions involving cyclists in London, are found in Lambeth.

A study conducted at monitoring sites across the capital in 2009 showed roads in Lambeth were among those to exceed recommended levels of nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas that can cause health problems. Brixton Road, Christchurch Road in Tulse Hill, the Bondway Interchange in Vauxhall and Streatham High Road all had levels above the recommended limits.

These are just some of the reasons why we campaign for the whole of Lambeth to be 20mph where people live. This includes both residential streets and Red Routes.
