More temporary measures to encourage walking and cycling on Croydon residential streets and improve the local environment are due to come into force next week.
A key route into central Croydon will have a new segregated cycle lane and 20mph limit installed as Croydon’s Streetspace initiative introduces new safety measures to London Road.
The Croydon Streetspace project is expanding to seven new locations next week, creating larger spaces for pedestrians and cyclists to use safely as lockdown restrictions are eased.
Residents will soon benefit from more than 300 spaces in new secure cycle storage areas across the borough as part of a council drive to encourage sustainable journeys.
Cycling will be easier on a key route into Croydon town centre under council upgrade plans taking place over Easter.
Croydon will step on to the world stage when it hosts a major event in the cycling calendar this summer, with thousands of spectators expected to turn out to see some of Britain’s top cyclists in action.
