Quietway 14 - Canada Water to South Dock

Closes 18 Dec 2017

Opened 20 Nov 2017

Overview

Quietway 14 is a walking and cycling route between Blackfriars and Deptford. As part of this consultation, we are proposing to implement the section between Canada Water and South Dock, and would like your views.

What is a Quietway?

Quietways are a part of a Transport for London programme to implement a network of continuous and safe cycle routes across London. Linking key destinations, they follow backstreet routes, through parks, along waterways or tree-lined streets.

The routes are not just for experienced cyclists but for anyone who wants to use quieter, low-traffic routes, providing an environment for those cyclists who want to ride at a more leisurely speed.  Quietways form an integral part of the Council’s objective to significantly increase the number of residents who opt for cycling as their preferred mode of transport, particularly when making local trips.

 

Why are we consulting?

This section of Quietway 14 is proposed to run between Canada Water and South Dock. The proposals follow key principles of the healthy streets approach which includes improving the quality of public areas to make walking and cycling pleasant and enjoyable, and improving the health of local residents.

We are proposing a range of changes, including:-

  • Improvements to existing off-road cycle and shared paths;
  • Public realm and lighting improvements;
  • Widen the existing Albion Canal Bridge (see map sheet 4);
  • New movable bridge crossing South Dock Lock (see map sheet 16);
  • Speed humps and raised road sections;
  • Adding double yellow lines and parking restrictions in a few places;
  • Introducing new signs, and road markings

You can see maps for all the proposed changes in the PDFs at the bottom of this page.

The main areas for improvement are:

  • Redriff Road underpass – where we want to make public realm improvements and improve lighting.
  • Albion Footbridge – where we are widening the ramp and the bridge, and improving the pavement surface.
  • New South Dock Lock Movable Bridge - where we are providing a new bridge to improve walking and cycling connectivity to Lewisham whilst maintaining full boat access to South Dock Marina.

Other areas for improvement include measures to improve pavement surface, calm speeds and improve visibility for pedestrians and cyclists on Albatross Way, Needleman Street, Albion Canal, Brass Talley Alley, Archangel Street, Russia Walk, Russia Dock Woodland, Lady Dock Path, Bonding Yard Walk, Finland Street, South Sea Street, Rope Street, and Princes Court.
