Send us your DLR Quick Wins Nov 2018

Do you live in DLR and see those annoying simple things everyday that are like “if they only did that” it would make an appreciable difference for cycling and walking.

We would like to gather those notes from you that are on your cycling route and put these to the council to help improve the cycling environment in DLR. We would like to complete the first list by the end of November 2018. We want to get this project going and use the benefit of using a data set that can give further analysis into the overall pain points and variance in quality amongst the various cycling routes in DLR.

Don’t worry if you can’t make lots of time to make a complete list. Just sending on the most important 1 or 2 things for you today, could make a big difference. The rest can follow latter. We plan on continuously adding to this list over time. Also, if you have submitted something to the council already, whether successful or not, please send us those to help follow up on too.

Send to us by whatever means you have.
