Quick Fix List

How can Southwark improve your cycling experience with a single change?

Every cyclists has minor inconveniences on their route – things that don’t stop you cycling, but do make riding a little more difficult. But how will Southwark Council fix them if they don’t know they exist?

If you have something that only needs a Quick Fix, let Southwark Cyclists know by emailing this address. Southwark Council have asked us to tell them where there are problems that can be fixed  quickly, cheaply and easily.

Please tell us the Infrastructure Type, Location, Area/Postcode/Coordinates, and Notes.

For example:
Drop kerbs, Fireman’s Alley, 51.44548,-0.07107, Where the community centre access crosses the pavement.


Shared use signs, Rotherhithe New Road pavement opposite the cycling access from Plough Way, 51.49185,-0.04476, Existing signs repeatedly removed by vandals, suggest either paint on the sidewalk or higher signs.

Here’s are some of the things on the current list – we hope to update this with successes in a few months!
