Heya, I attended the Mayor & Cabinet Meeting on 4th October and visited the respective stretch between George Ln and Thornford Rd with the Council’s Transport Policy & Development Manager. The response letter from Lewisham Council (LC) to our Petition for a safer Hither Green Lane (HGL) can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/HitherGreenPetition/.
In short, LC will have to review all improvement schemes including the one for HGL in light of the new Mayor’s Transport Strategy that targets healthy streets, air quality, traffic reduction, and road safety. As for the reviewed Scheme for HGL, Council suggests to shorten the intervention area to between St Swithun’s Rd and George Ln. For the interim, we have asked for traffic calming measures, like refreshing road-markings. Council was positive.
What do you think? Your constructive feedback and inputs are most welcome!
