Pave over Bermondsey Wall West, like Clink Street
, and make it access only/shared space. They're both part of the Thames path, although admittedly Clink street is way busier.
Recall the ideas Team London Bridge
(http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/7990) drew up for Druid Street
Bollards could stop through traffic but allow deliveries, although a turning circle would be needed at the top of Mill Street
, George Row, etc. Slightly radical, but I think it would be of benefit to more people than it would inconvenience (not sure how many people walk the Thames path?).
I'm sure funding could be found through central government health or environmental initiatives. Cleaner/Greener/Safer wouldn't stretch to cover it, but shows money is there for those who apply for it.
All that said, I don't believe it will happen any time soon, but could see it happening after Chambers Wharf is built in 15 years time.
In the mean time 20mph signs on the street are probably a realistic idea.
