We've published an article setting out what we want to see from TFL and Kensington and Chelsea Council regarding the dangerous Battersea Bridge junction, where a runner was tragically killed by a driver a week ago.
It's likely that no one on LFGSS needs telling how dangerous this junction is. And of course it bears relevance to junctions across London, and the world.
Not great news on the climate crisis and road danger to cyclist front yesterday regarding the High Court ruling, but TFL are appealing and there is no immediate requirement to suspend or remove Streetspace schemes.

Some really good news from us today: Late last year, Guys and St Thomas Health Charity proposed to fund 3 low-traffic neighbourhoods in Southwark, and a long-term study of the health and wellbeing impacts ( https://www.lcc.org.uk/articles/low-traffic-neighbourhoods-delivering-public-health-outcomes-across-london )
The LTNs went live today and they look great!
Happy new year LFGSS!
