The new double cycle lane running across the end of Ann Moss Way has made entry and access to Ann Moss Way dangerous.

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 14:56, Wednesday 3 April 2024

Sent to Southwark Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5801709.

The new double cycle lane running across the end of Ann Moss Way means that cars existing into Lower Road have to repeatedly check 3 lanes of traffic (2 cycle lanes and one car lane) that are all going in opposite directions, before leaving the cul de sac. In the night time, when some cyclists do not have lights, this becomes evenmore dangerous.

For drivers entering Ann Moss Way using a left turn from Lower Road, the road layout effectively creates a blind spot, where it is impossible to see cyclists passing across Ann Moss Way from the left, in the same direction as the vehicle. For vehicles entering Ann Moss Way, it becomes somewhat of a lottery for drivers wishing to avoid a collision with a cyclist.

It is only a matter of time before a cyclist is seriously injured through no fault of the driver but because of the poor layout and double cycling lane, which create an accident waiting to happen. Please look into this and rectify this as a matter of uregency before someone is seriously injured or killed. I would ask that you consider removing the cycle lanes on this part of Lower Road completely, or putting one of the lanes on the opposite side of the road and changing the layout on this side of the road so that cyclists become more visible to drivers wishing to turn into Ann Moss Way. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
