1. Notice is hereby given that Lambeth Borough Council, with the agreement of Wandsworth Borough Council, on 5 March 2003, made the Lambeth (Stockwell) (Parking Places) (No 2) Experimental Order 2003, the Lambeth (Free Parking Places) (Disabled Persons) (No 1) Experimental Traffic Order 2003, the Lambeth and Wandsworth (Waiting and Loading Restriction) (Special Parking Area) (No 1) Experimental Traffic Order 2003, and the Lambeth (Cycle Lane) (No 2) Experimental Traffic Order 2003, under sections 7(1), 9 and 10 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The Orders will come into force on 10 March 2003 and will continue for up to 18 months. 2. The general nature and effect of the Orders will be: (a) to prohibit waiting by vehicles (including waiting for the purpose of loading or unloading a vehicle) at any time in certain parts of Fount Street, Hemans Street, Pascal Street, Thorncroft Street, Wandsworth Road, Wilcox Road and Wyvil Road; (b) to prohibit waiting by vehicles (except for the purpose of loading or unloading a vehicle in certain circumstances) in Pascal Street, the north-east side, between a point 28 metres north-west of Wandsworth Road and a point 51 metres north-west of Wandsworth Road; (c) to provide a new cycle lane on the east and south-east side of Wandsworth Road, between a point 118 metres north of Wyvil Road and a point 86.2 metres south-west of Thorncroft Street (the existing cycle lane at this location will be suspended); (d) to vary the descriptions of certain parking places within existing Traffic Orders, without any change to the current situation on the ground. 3. The measures described above are necessary to improve safety for all road users, particularly cyclists, in Wandsworth Road. 4. If you have any enquiries about this matter, please telephone the Council’s Transport and Highways Group on 020-7926 1190. 5. Documents giving more detailed particulars of the Orders are available for inspection during normal office hours on Mondays to Fridays in the offices of Lambeth Borough Council’s Transport and Highways Group, 3rd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, Brixton, London SW9 9SP, during the period from 7 March 2003 until the Orders cease to have effect. 6. In due course, the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth will be considering whether the provisions of the Experimental Orders should be continued in force indefinitely by means of Orders made under sections 6 and 45 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Any person may object to the making of the Orders for the purpose of such indefinite continuation within a period of 6 months beginning with the day on which the Experimental Orders come into force or, if any of the Orders are varied by another Order or modified pursuant to section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, beginning with the day on which the variation or modification or the latest variation or modification came into force. Any such objection must be in writing and must state the grounds on which it is made and be sent to Barbara Poulter, Transport and Highways Group, London Borough of Lambeth, 3rd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, Brixton, London SW9 9SP. Any objection may be seen by, or communicated to, any person who may have an interest in this matter. 7. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Orders or of any of their provisions on the grounds that it or they are not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or that any requirement of that Act or of any Instrument made under that Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Orders are made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
