Lambeth Council is consulting on plans to allow cyclists to travel in both directions along half a dozen one-way streets in the Waterloo area, including Roupell Street.

45 streets across the borough of Lambeth have already been converted from standard one-way streets to one-way streets that allow legal two-way cycling.

Now the council has published a list of 20 streets it intends to allow cyclists to use in both directions from the early part of next year. Six of these streets are in Waterloo:

Centaur Street
Cosser Street
Murphy Street
Roupell Street (between Cornwall Road and Theed Street)
Sandell Street
Upper Marsh

The council says that it is not proposing any changes to parking or road layouts, other than some new signs and road markings.

The council is inviting residents to comment on its proposals by email to [email protected] by Sunday 29 October.
