How can we make Windsor Walk more accessible?

Closed 7 Aug 2022

Opened 4 Jul 2022


Tell us what you think of proposals to improve access on Windsor Walk for people travelling to and arriving from Denmark Hill station.


Passenger numbers at Denmark Hill station have tripled in the last fifteen years, causing overcrowding and congestion at entrances and platforms.

Network Rail have provided a new station entrance and cycle hub at Denmark Hill to relieve station crowding and support more reliable train services. Southwark Council welcomes these improvements and has committed to making disability access, walking and cycling easier to and from the station.

The proposals

We are proposing to widen the Windsor Walk pavement to provide more space for disability access, walking and to improve cycle access.

  • decluttering the pavement, removing unnecessary signs and other obstructions
  • widening the pavement from the new station entrance by removing eight short stay/permit parking bays
  • installing a new disabled drop-off bay
  • replacing the planters on the bridge with bollards to create more space for cyclists and to prevent illegal car parking on the bridge
  • moving the bollard line to the kerb on Champion Park to prevent parked cars obstructing the pelican crossing
  • installing cycle parking on the new kerbline, maximising access for both walking and cycling
  • providing a safe, step-free crossing between the station and the hospital
