Dear Sir or Madam
I am writing on behalf of the Greenwich Cyclists to make it clear that, in
principle, we have no objection to the proposed cycle contraflow in
Aldeburgh Street (Cycling Routes may not be safe, News Shopper 24 May). In
fact we have not yet seen the proposal.
We do agree with the Council that these contraflows can work very
effectively, there are plenty of good examples elsewhere in London. But
the point is that just like every other borough resident, we want to see
the council use its money effectively. This means that cycle schemes have
to be developed in consultation with potential users as well as residents.
If they are not, they will simply be introducing expensive white elephants
that actually do more harm than good to the cyclists' cause.
