Transport for London (TfL) has commissioned national public spaces charity Living Streets to carry out a Street Audit of the walking environment area around London Bridge station.
The aim of this audit is to provide TfL with an overview of the issues facing people using London Bridge station on foot, and to draw up a list of possible work that would improve conditions for pedestrians in the area. The audit may identify opportunities to improve the street scene and change the way road space is used, or indicate a need for better street lighting, removal of obstructions, improvements to footway surfaces, or better crossing points, for example.
A core part of the audit process is a live assessment of the streets and public spaces through the eyes of those who live or work locally, to harness their local knowledge and experiences.
Two audits are being held on the day. The first will start at 12.30pm and the second at 6pm. Come along to whichever suits you better.
Meet just outside the station at the covered area between the Fone Doctors shop and the footbridge (London Bridge Walk) that takes pedestrians over Tooley Street. The whole process will take about an hour.
If you cannot make the audits but would like to make comments about walking in the London Bridge station area, contact audit leader Jeremy Leach on 020 7252 5331 or [email protected]
