Baylis Road segregated cycle lanes completed

The Baylis Road scheme has been delivered by Lambeth Council as part of Transport for London's Cycleway 5 scheme linking Waterloo with Norbury.

The decision to create fully segregated cycle lanes on Baylis Road was signed off last December by cabinet member Cllr Claire Holland.

The scheme replaced an earlier less ambitious proposal for partly segregated bike lanes.

Two zebra crossings on Baylis Road have been converted to include parallel cycle crossings.

Roadworks began in Baylis Road in February and continued during lockdown.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan inspected the works in progress at the end of February in one of his final public engagements before most face-to-face gatherings were cancelled.

Lambeth council says that around 3,500 bike journeys a day are made along Baylis Road, and during the morning peak hour, bicycles make up more than two thirds of all vehicle traffic heading toward central London along the road.
