Construction has begun again on the Cycleway 4 route on Bermondsey’s Jamaica Road, after a pause.

The segregated cycle route will ultimately see a split-cycle section from Tower Bridge to Greenwich when finally completed.

It had been paused in March due to the coronavirus outbreak, with the section of the route originally slated for completion in April.

It comes as TfL has announced extra cycle docking stations in Bermondsey and Rotherhithe, including outside Bermondsey and Canada Water tube stations.

These are due to be built this summer, with another Boris Bike station to be built outside London Bridge by the end of the year.

“We welcome the return of the Cycleway 4 works and the introduction of Santander bikes along Jamaica Road to Canada Water station,” said Southwark Council’s transport boss, Richard Livingstone.

“We are busy working with people in the borough, creating space for pedestrians and encouraging more people to walk and cycle. 

“Together we can improve road safety and maintain a sustained and significant reduction in air and noise pollution for everyone here in Southwark.”

TfL officials say it is important for people to walk and cycle during the pandemic, as capacity on buses and tubes are limited, meaning they would be quickly crowded if used normally.
