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

Road changes

Until April 2020

Sections of the A200 Tooley Street and Jamaica Road are reduced to one lane in each direction. 

Expect delays:

  • on the A200 Tooley Street and Jamaica Road.
  • approaching Rotherhithe roundabout from the A101 Rotherhithe Tunnel and from the A200 Lower Road


The lane restrictions on the Rotherhithe Roundabout and Jamaica Road mean that roads are likely to be extremely busy and delays are expected. For a quicker and easier journey use an alternative route. 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 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.
