  • Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood

    Created by Alex Raha // 1 thread

    The Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhood (DPLN) project is focused on the area surrounding Folkestone Gardens, Deptford Park and Fordham Park and is funded through the Mayor of London's "Liveable Neighbourhood" programme along with borough and external match-funding. The programme is in line with the Mayor's draft Transport Strategy, which sets out a long-term ambition to transform the Capital's transport network and deliver a fairer, greener, healthier and more prosperous city for all Londoners.

    Why?

    Deptford’s population is growing fast but currently suffers from significant deprivation, communities cut-off by dangerous roads and railway lines, poor air quality, and childhood obesity. We want to tackle these issues by creating safe places to walk and cycle, reducing the amount of cars on the roads as well as creating attractive places to sit and relax.

    What has happened already?

    The council worked with park user group Deptford Folk, cycling and walking charity Sustrans, and other local groups on a community street design project for Rolt Street and Folkestone Gardens in Spring 2017. The project culminated in a community led design for the area which reimagines Rolt Street as an extension of Folkestone Gardens providing extra space to sit and relax as well as creating a safer crossing to Woodpecker Walk. You can read more about the Rolt Street community street design project along with a video and proposals by visiting our Reimagining Rolt Street page. These proposals were then incorporated into the wider Deptford Parks Liveable Neighbourhoods project and we will be developing these proposals further as part of the feasibility study.

  • Tanner St./ Druid St. Link to (proposed) Cycle Superhighway 4 (from Quietway14)

    Created by Luce // 1 thread

    Overview

    We would like your views on our proposals to make changes to cycling provision on Tanner Street. As part of these changes, a segregated two-way cycle track would run along the eastern side of Tanner Street and join the proposed Cycle Superhighway Route 4 (CS4) on the northern edge of Jamaica Road. Tanner Street forms part of Quietway 14, linking Tower Bridge Road to Canada Water. Quietways are a network of cycle routes throughout London, linking major destinations and are especially helpful for those who wish to use quieter, low traffic routes.

    These changes have been designed to make cycling easier, safer and more attractive. We’re also proposing changes for pedestrians, including a new signalised pedestrian crossing on Druid Street and changes to footways. The proposals form part of the Mayor of London’s plan for Healthy Streets - a long-term vision to encourage more Londoners to walk and cycle by making London’s streets healthier, safer and more welcoming.
