Vauxhall Bridge Road/Drummond Gate/Causton Street
We have again asked the Road Safety Team and TfL to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety at this location. Residents say:
“The pedestrian crossing across Vauxhall Bridge Road now intersects with a new cycle lane that runs on the pedestrian pavement. The cycle lane runs along the pavement at the point at which pedestrians alight onto the pavement on the Causton Street side of the Vauxhall Bridge Road pedestrian crossing. This means the pavement is used jointly by pedestrians and cyclists.Pedestrians often do not realise that when they alight onto the ‘safe’ pavement the other side of Vauxhall Bridge Road they are effectively stepping straight into a major cycle lane and into the pathway of often very fast moving cyclists. Sometimes, cyclists using this cycle lane are travelling faster than cars! The pavement markings are extremely poor and cyclists rarely stop for pedestrians, even when the pedestrian crossing is on a ‘green man light’. When the crossing is on a ‘green man’ the cars stop and pedestrians cross safely across the roadway, but there isn’t a corresponding cycle ‘traffic light’ so cyclists just continue on the pavement on the Causton Street side. Often cyclists shout at pedestrians and hurtle past (on the pavement) causing near-accidents on a regular basis.”
