The "official route" for southbound Tower Bridge Road
traffic heading towards London Bridge is a left turn into Tooley Street
(right after the bridge), then a 180 degree turn on the small stretch of Tanner Street
which will get you onto Druid Street
(all roads are official A roads for through traffic). Over the years some residents and partnerships have urged TFL to look into solutions to allow a right turn into Druid Street
from TBR - not sure if TFL will act on this any time soon though.
Residents and businesses can access the northern part of Bermondsey Street
through Whites Grounds (via Druid Street
Making Leathermarket Street
westbound and Tanner Street
eastbound will remove the rat-run in the area and reduce the through traffic on Bermondsey Street
significantly (which is bound to get worse over time with the new station). There is the risk of Bermondsey Street
becoming a rat-run for traffic from Long Lane
not being able to turn left into TBR. However this has not been such a big issue so far from what I can tell.
