The reason given is 'This would improve the performance of the junction for all road users and allow simpler crossings for pedestrians across Tooley Street and Jamaica Road with reduced wait times.' This appears to be another case of tfl looking for a problem to solve when one does not exist. Last year there was a proposal to ban turning into Queen Elizabeth street from Tower Bridge road, and it was withdrawn after multiple local protests. I hope that there will be similar protests to this new proposal.
There is also a proposal 'Eastbound general traffic lane between Queen Elizabeth Street and Tower Bridge Road replaced by the one-way cycle track', but I do not fully understand this.
