  • Community News: The London Streetspace programme - Balham to Colliers Wood

    As London continues to emerge from the lockdown we will need to find new ways to travel.

    Enabling social distancing on public transport will mean that only those who have no alternative will travel in this way.

    Others will have to find alternatives. However, if the number of trips taken by private vehicles increases, London will find to a halt, with essential deliveries and emergency services stuck in gridlock. That's why TFL and the London Boroughs are developing the Streetspace programme to create more space for people to walk and cycle safely whilst social distancing as well as make London greener.

    The scheme between Balham and Colliers Wood is a strategic cycling corridor which follows the Northern Line from Colliers Wood to Elephant and Castle with connections onwards to City of London. Plans will help to reduce pressure on the Northern Line and assist local buses by making it safer for people to walk and cycle through the area.
