Bromley Council's survey on the 'experimental' and controversial Albemarle Road Cycle Scheme and closure of Westgate Road Bridge to two way traffic finishes tomorrow. Make sure you have your say here.
The previous attempts at consultation fell well short of local peoples' expectations, with the scheme being implemented with almost no consultation. The decision to close Westgate Road Bridge to two-way traffic similarly implemented without consultation. The first proper consultation carried out by the Council months after the scheme was implemented was undermined by the Conservative local ward Councillors doing their own much smaller 'alternate consultation' simultaneously (see our previous post).
The Council are asking local residents and businesses to complete a survey by 12 November 2021. It's a short survey and the information you enter will go directly to the Council Officers managing the scheme. We encourage all local people affected by the scheme, whether they live close by it or are impacted when they travel through Beckenham, to complete the survey.
