Jubilee Cycle Grid Route Section A - Nicholson Street, Chancel Street & Dolben Street

Closed 9 Nov 2015

Opened 9 Oct 2015

Feedback expected 11 Dec 2015

Overview

Background

The Cycle Grid is a network of continuous and safe cycle routes across inner London. The routes are not just for current cyclists but for people who have been put off cycling by the thought of sharing the road with high volumes of motorised traffic. The Cycle Grid and Quietways form an integral part of the Mayor of London’s vision for cycling launched in 2013 and 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.

Southwark Council is holding a consultation to understand residents, businesses and stakeholders views regarding the proposals as part of the Jubilee Cycle Grid Route. This section of Nicholson Street, Chancel Street and Dolben Street forms part of a series of improvements along the route which starts from Blackfriars Road in the west and ends at Tower Bridge Road in the east. The proposed scheme aims to improve road safety, conditions for cyclists, accessibility for all road users and the quality of the streetscape. The proposed cycle route alignment is shown below.

Details of the proposals in the other three sections of the route can be found in the related consultations section below.

What Happens Next

The responses to the questionnaire will be analysed and taken into account in the final design proposals. Because of the large number of anticipated responses, regrettably we cannot respond personally to specific issues raised.  However all comments and suggestions will be taken into consideration before a decision is made. The consultation results and recommendations will be presented at the next Borough, Bankside and Walworth Community Council meeting on 21 November 2015 and Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Community Council meeting on 2 December 2015. Further details about the meeting can be found at our website, under Council and Democracy at www.southwark.gov.uk.  A formal decision on what will be built will be made by the Cabinet Member for Environment and the Public Realm in late 2015.
