I have come across a lottery competition that may mean major investment in walking and cycling links in South Bermondsey. The scheme is part of a nationwide project called Connect2. It is being run by Sustrans and is supported by the council. They want money to open up the old bridge outside South Bermondsey station and funding will be fought for on national television in December where the money will be allocated by a phone vote.
Does anyone else have problems getting to South Bermondsey station? I find Rotherhithe New Road and Ilderton Road both extremely busy and unpleasant with absolutely no crossings for pedestrians. The bridge would mean car-free access to the station and beyond.
As someone who both uses the station and cycles regularly I think this project would be extremely beneficial if done right. The station itself is grotty enough and any investment would be positive, right? Have a look at the websites:
Welcome to the forum. Forgive me if I am more than a little suspicious about the suggestion that this is a project that you have "come across", rather than being intimately involved in it.
I'd like to reiterate that people are quite welcome to invite discussion of local schemes/projects they are involved in on the forum - the more, the merrier. (OK, before a pedant points it out, yes, this is SE16 but only by about 150 metres...)
What is NOT OK is pretending to be a disinterested third party. Honesty is always the best policy.
