Reminder: Blackfriars Bridge engagement closes tomorrow (Friday)

Just a quick one. If you’ve been dilly-dallying, now is the time to respond to TfL. The engagement page is here and the addressed to email with your response is

Blackfriars Bridge, northbound, 7-10am 1988-2010.

In case, like me, you sometimes get lost in the morass of detail, here are three reasons you might want to object:

1. TfL is proposing to reduce the width of the cycle lane when their own screenline data shows there are more cyclists on the bridge than any other form of transport.

2. They’re proposing to get rid of a pedestrian crossing – people walk for reasons other than just going to/from stations.

3. TfL are trying to create a new lane for motor vehicles at the north end of the bridge – when the number of bikes is going up and the number of motor vehicles down.
