Brent Council consulted on changing the bus lane times on Kilburn High Road to include 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays. This is in addition to present bus lanes operating at 7.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. on Monday to Friday and between 10.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. on Saturday Only. Brent Cycling Campaign responded as follows.
This is the response from Brent Cycling Campaign, the local group of London Cycling Campaign, to Kilburn High Road TO-30-029-np consultation. We represent around 300 supporters and attempt to represent the interests of all who cycle or would like to cycle in NW London.
We note that the proposal will extend the bus lane times to include Sundays 10 am to 7 pm.
We support this proposal.
We note that this proposal will provide limited benefit to people cycling on Kilburn High Road. Bus lanes are not cycle infrastructure, and do not sufficiently change the status quo to bring about a modal shift to cycling. Brent Council must work with TfL, Camden Council and Barnet Council to bring forward a plan for safe cycling and walking infrastructure along the length of the A5.Brent Cycling Campaign response to TO-30-029-np, 11th July 2021.
