AGM (3 Nov meeting) – Wells Way improvements
Both FOBP and Southwark Cyclists support improvements to Wells Way to green the route and improve conditions for cyclists and pedestrians. Read Joe Parker’s presentation on Southwark Cyclists’ Wells Way proposal. At the meeting, FOBP members proposed working together with Southwark Cyclists to lobby for these improvements including linking with Quietway 7 (QW7 Elephant and Castle to Crystal Palace).
Abigail Tripp of Wheels for Wellbeing advocated a better crossing on Wells Way linking Burgess Park East and West so that adapted cycles for disabled children and adults could travel across all of the park. At the moment, these cycles are unable to use the underpass which is too steep for them. A better crossing is also needed on Trafalgar Avenue to access the Community Garden and Surrey Canal Walk section of Burgess Park.
Wheels for Wellbeing provides cycling sessions for disabled children and adults in south London parks. Abigail also hoped to find a Burgess Park base for a fleet of the specially adapted cycles for these sessions. She will be attending the cycling festival at the BMX track on Saturday, 14 Nov 2015.
