Rob, you unfortunately missed the five "Traffic Management Exhibition" dates of 16th to 20th July which showed all the detailed proposals. Phone Southwark Regeneration on 0800 616823 for a leaflet and to discuss the plans with the Council's consultants. They said that they wanted their questionnaires back by 26th July, but you could plead ignorance.
will become one-way eastbound, with a new cycle lane westbound. The pavements and pedestrian crossing points will be improved, also "localised traffic calming", but no 20MPH zone planned for the Tanner Street
As far as the scheme goes, well I suppose it's OK. I wanted to see more restriction of motor traffic on Bermondsey Street
which is a white van/taxi rat-run, and currently enjoying a ready-mix concrete truck every five minutes thanks to "More London" construction. And better crossings on Tower Bridge Road
, which is outside the study area.
Also, isn't making Tanner Street
one-way going to *increase* the speed of the traffic?
