One elements of the proposal I was concerned about is proposed loading bay on NKR - I've received a response - see below... Hmmmm
Q: The addition of a loading bay on New Kent Road
gives me concern about the passage of buses along this road at peak periods. The drawing implies that the loading bay would intersect the bus lane and the normal traffic lane along NKR is often at a standstill meaning that buses can only progress when they have full use of the bus lane - any obstruction to that lane would be a serious issue.
A: Capital Homes is working with TfL and the highways department at LB Southwark to ensure the proposed servicing bay area is functional and does not impact on the bus lane like you say. The servicing bay will have time restrictions on its usage to ensure it does not conflict with traffic passing along the New Kent Road
