Stop road closures in Lewisham

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

We request that the road closures in the borough that have been installed since the 1st June 2020 without prior notice and without proper and full public consultation be removed. By road closures we refer to the “modal filters” and “school streets” installations. These closures are creating more traffic congestion, more air pollution and longer journey times. The Covid-19 epidemic is being used as an excuse when road closures have no benefit for social distancing.

We also request that no further such road closures are installed, on a temporary, experimental or permanent basis, without a public consultation that includes a postal survey delivered to all residents likely to be affected (to which they can respond via post or on the internet) and which is also open to road users. Such a public consultation should ask a simple question on each proposed closure whether they support it or not.
