Rotherhithe to Peckham Cycle Route Consultation

Closed 28 May 2023

Opened 3 Apr 2023


We are proposing to implement a new cycle route between Rotherhithe and Peckham.

The aims of this proposal are to:

  • provide a signed route for those cycling between the key areas of Peckham and Rotherhithe
  •  improve cycle safety in Southwark and reduce on-street collisions
  •  improve street design for those walking, cycling and wheeling
  •  connect up existing routes

This route extends for over two miles and we welcome your views on all sections, however we have split it up into sections so that you have the chance to just comment on the area that most impacts you if you wish.

This project proposes to introduce a variety of interventions to make walking and cycling a more pleasant experience. Some stretches will remain very similar to how they are at the moment and some stretches will include a fully segregated two-way cycle track. In some places, we have improved the footway and in some areas, we have reduced the on street parking available to meet the minimum road width required for cycle safety.

All drawings can be found in the additional documents section (NB - updated 11/4), as well as at the top of each page of the survey dedicated to a particular section.

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
