TFL – Gallows Corner Improvements – Not doing enough for cyclists.

TFL have just released their proposals for improvements at Gallows corner. You can comment on the proposals at https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/gallows-corner-road-safety.

Yet again TFL, although making some improvements for cyclists are not doing enough.

For example, although they are proposing to improve the shared paths between Straight Road/A12 East/A127. They are doing nothing to improve the shared facilities between Straight road/A12 West/Main Road/A127.

In particular the shared pathway between Main Road and A127 is seeing no improvements and this is too narrow for safe use. A safe link needs to be created around the corner and then linking with the improvements at the junction between Main Road and Upper Brentwood Road.

The A12 West crossing also needs improving as it is very unsafe as traffic leaves Gallows Corner along the A12 West.

Make your voices heard and tell TFL what’s needed for cyclists.
