Lower Marsh design consultation

23 March
Attended a presentation by the four shortlisted designers. None of them showed any cycle parking and general consideration of cycling was poor - for example not resolving the junction with Westminster Bridge Road to make a right turn into Lower Marsh easy or a crossing to Upper Marsh via a Toucan for example. Got a chance to emphasise the growth in cycling and the need for thinking projects through. Lambeth's head of transport was keen to point out the support for cycling and its inclusion at the forefront of changes. Fingers crossed it'll work out in practice.
