This is the main cause of the tailbacks to Borough Station or beyond. I now see that a broad cycle track separated by solid square kerbs is being installed where bus stop H was (it looks like the bus stop for Elephant & Castle will now only be where stop G is, about 100 yards from Elephant & Castle junction) and there is no room for a second motor or bus lane beyond Rockingham Street. Does anyone know if the "keep left" concrete bollards in the cente are to be removed and then only one traffic lane provided going north into Newington Causeway in order to allow a second traffic and/or bus lane going south? Maybe this would work but otherwise its a potential disaster.
