Quietway 83 (Bermondsey to Catford) Section 1
First section of this QW to be consulted on, which will, in the main, mirror LCN22. One of the main reasons for this alignment is to encourage cyclists away from the Canal Path, which is at saturation at peak times, with no safe (24/7) alternative.
Southwark's account of the changes:
'This Quietway is planned to run from Bermondsey down to Peckham Road, running along Glengall Road, Trafalgar Avenue and Sumner Road. We hope it will provide a safe alternative cycling route to the Surrey Canal Path, as we know this can sometimes become crowded with pedestrians and cyclists.
Changes along the proposed new Quietway include:
widening the east-west section of the Surrey Linear Canal Path into a shared path
installing a new two-way cycle path along Trafalgar Avenue
changes to the junction of Sumner Road and Commercial Way
new pedestrian and cycle crossings
new raised tables and raised junctions
improving or replacing many of the existing speed humps
double yellow lines at some junctions to improve visibility and pedestrian accessibility.'
