Cycleway 4

Work to create Cycleway 4 is underway along Tooley Street and Jamaica Road to the Rotherhithe Roundabout.

Find out more about the project.


For a quicker and easier journey use an alternative route or travel outside peak periods. Otherwise you should allow more time for your journey.

If you are travelling westbound north of the river and need to cross, stay on the north bank and use Tower Bridge to avoid the work sites.

If you are already south of the river, use alternative roads such as the Old Kent Road (A2) or A2206 to make your journey to central London.

During the works there will be lane closures, parking restrictions and turning restrictions at different times on Creek Road, Tooley Street, Jamaica Road and borough roads.

When driving in the area please be aware of restrictions on travelling through Rotherhithe Tunnel.

Where possible, use public transport - tube and rail services will not be affected by the works.
