Harper Road: council wants your views

Southwark Council has launched a survey to gather opinions on Harper Road as it plans to make changes to the look and feel of the area.

Harper Road: council wants your views

"We are conducting this survey to find how people who live on the street or visit it regularly feel about it as a place to visit, stop, shop or travel through," said the council.

The survey includes questions on perceptions air quality, traffic, crime and noise, based on Transport for London's 'Healthy Streets' criteria.

The survey can be found at and is open until Friday 3 August.

At Easter the council introduced an experimental width restriction to deter larger vans and lorries from using Harper Road as a short-cut to avoid the Elephant & Castle junction.

As a result of tampering with the concrete blocks initially used to enforce the HGV ban, new widened traffic islands have now been installed.

The council is already working on several projects in the Harper Road area, including improvements to shopfronts, an upgrade to the park at Dickens Square and the proposed Southwark Spine cycle route.
