Cycle Route - Peckham Rye between Nunhead Lane and Stuart Road

Closed 1 Oct 2023

Opened 21 Aug 2023


Tell us what you think about plans for a new cycle route (Cycle 35) along Peckham Rye between Nunhead Lane and Stuart Road.

The whole route will eventually continue to Brockley Mews, but in this phase we are just looking at the section on Peckham Rye.

This section will include an off-road two-way cycle lane for the length of Peckham Rye, with tactile paving at crossings to encourage people cycling to slow and look out for people walking.

There will be raised road surfaces at all the road junctions to encourage cars to slow and provide even surfaces for people walking and cycling as well as raised zebra crossings.

In order to meet the minimum road width required for cycle safety, and maintain pavement space, we're planning to remove parking along Peckham Rye.

The aims of this proposal are to:

  • improve access to Rye Lane and Peckham Rye for people walking and cycling
  • provide a new cycle route for those cycling from/to the south of Southwark
  • improve cycle safety in Southwark and reduce on-street collisions
  • connect up existing routes 
  • encourage the use of more sustainable modes of transport

You can view the plans of the proposed route here.

This new route forms part of Southwark's ambitious Streets for People strategy, which aims to transform street spaces in Southwark, designing them around the needs of people, not cars.

Drop-in Session

If you would like to learn more about the project, please come and talk to us on Saturday 2 September Peckham Rye Common between 12:00pm and 5:00pm - we have a stall as part of the Peckham Rye Fete

Subject to approval, we would expect the first section of this scheme to start construction in Autumn 2024.

Why your views matter

The results of this questionnaire, as well as the engagement events will inform the next stage of design subject to the scheme being approved by the Cabinet Member.

What happens next

We will:

  • gather and analyse the information from all of the consultation events, meetings and online survey.
  • write a report containing all the information, which will go to cabinet for formal approval.
  • If approved we will use the information gathered to help shape the detailed design
  • feedback to you the results of this consultation and how you have shaped the detailed design.

The report will also be available on our website
