Southwark is committed to quickly rolling out schemes to make travel safe and healthy as lockdown eases, in line with government guidance on the Covid-19 response. Walworth has been identified as a priority area.
We are installing experimental measures below to create a low-traffic neighbourhood and re-purpose the street space for the pedestrians, cyclists, the local community and businesses:
- Permeable closures (these are streets closed to motor vehicles but open to pedestrians and cyclists) on: Larcom Street, Browning Street, Merrow Street, Amelia Street, Alberta Street, Iliffe Street, Penton Place, Chapter Road, Cooks Road, Blackwood Street and Walworth Place.
- Introducing a bus gate on Carter Street and Manor Place.
- Footway widening on Braganza Street and Carter Street.
- Introducing a one-way system on Braganza Street Westbound only, and reversing the one-way system on Chapter Road to Northbound only.
We want to hear from you about the effects of these measures.
