Has anyone looked at the consultation on the proposed quietway for cycles along Cornwall Way. It is proposed to close Exton Street and Alaska Street so the only way into the Roupell/Whittlesey/Theed Street complex would be via Stamford Street and Cornwall Road. If you are coming from Kennington that would require a long detour. Thye say they want to stop rat-runnning on Cornwall Road which does happen, although not on a huge scale.
Any ideas? I used to live in Roupell Street and was part of the campaign to make it one way eastbound past Theed Street, perhaps if you can't get to Waterloo it should be reopened as two way, at least we could come in via Hatfields.
I have always believed that the North Lambeth Tenants' Association or whatever it is that represents the Roupell Street area are selfish. They fought very hard to get Cornwall Road and Roupell Street cut off by barriers and one way systems to the detriment of the rest of us who live in the area, especially Hatfields.
Cornwall Road is not a rat-run. How can it be when the street has barriers across it between Wooton Street and Brad Street preventing all motor traffic access.
There are two roads that connect The Cut and Stamford Street and they are Cornwall Road and Hatfields. Because of the successful campaign to get barriers put across Cornwall Road and two across different points of Windmill Walk all Stamford Street/The Cut traffic has been channelled on to Hatfields.
And now because of the threat of noisy bicycles and their routes and the necessary planning you want to use Hatfields because you are going to be slightly inconvenienced. As you can guess I have no sympathy with your plight as you had none with us on Hatfields who have suffered the inconvenience of not being able to use Roupell Street and have had to suffer all the through traffic so that you could have a quiet life.
