Southwark Council is consulting with the public on plans to make changes to two Bermondsey roads to ‘improve safety’.

The council has received a number of requests from the public to address safety concerns in Old Jamaica Road and Thurland Road.

Officers are now looking to improve safety in the two roads, particularly the main pedestrian route to and from the school and the main route towards Bermondsey underground station.

Changes proposed are aimed at enhancing Old Jamaica Road and Thurland Road, and reducing traffic flows and traffic speeds in order to improve the safety of road users.

The council is seeking the views of the public on the two following options:

  • Option 1: To make Thurland Road and Old Jamaica Road one-way northbound (Dockley Road to Marine Street).
  • Option 2: To close Thurland Road to all traffic between Spa Road and Dockley Road.

A drop in session be held at the St James’ Church, in Thurland Road, on Thursday, March 16, from 3pm to 7pm. Council officers will be available to discuss the proposed changes in detail.

To give your view by Friday, March 24.
