Motorists are being warned of road closures in Bermondsey this weekend as thousands take part in a walk for cancer research overnight.
Cancer Research UK’s Shine Night Walk will see roads closed in the area from 6pm this Saturday, September 23.
The full and half marathon event, which calls on people to illuminate the streets of London and raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work, will take place overnight starting from Southwark Park.
The inside lane of Jamaica Road will be closed from Southwark Park to the junction with St James’ Road from 7pm until midnight.
This will affect access to Southwark Park Road, Drummond Road, Keaton’s Road and St James’ Road.
Parking bays on this section of Jamaica Road will also be suspended from 6pm which will impact on bus stops in the area.
One lane of Druid Street between Abbey Street and Tanner Street will be closed from 7.35pm until 12.30am but residents will still be able to access the Arnold Estate and Sweeney Crescent.
All parking bays on this section will be suspended from 6pm. Jamaica Road, Tower Bridge Road, Tooley Street and Lower Road are likely to be congested until 11.30pm.
Traffic management stewards will be supervising the area on the night and clear signs will be displayed prior to the event.
Money raised through Shine goes towards funding research into more than 200 types of cancer.
