Campaign success: Brent plans its first on-road segregated cycle route

September 2015

We have learned from the council that funding is now in place via Transport for London to construct a segregated cycle route on the Brent section of Carlton Vale in South Kilburn. This is a plan for which Brent Cyclists has been campaigning for some time, and we are delighted at this news. If it goes through consultation successfully it will become the first on-road segregated cycle facilitiy in Brent. Taken together with other work in progressing some our other Space for Cycling Ward Asks and Top Ten Quick Wins, and the regular formal contact we now have with councillors and officers through a Cycle Forum, we consider and hope that this may mark the start of a new and more constructive era of co-operation between Brent Cyclists and the council, which we have often had to criticise in the past for a poor record of progressing cycling improvements.
