Cycleway 4 will create a clearer and safer route for cycling on roads in Bermondsey, Rotherhithe, Deptford and Greenwich. New pedestrian crossings will also be added and public spaces improved to make these areas more pleasant to live, work, shop and spend time in.
Our plan also allows for the area's future growth. Cycleway 4 will help connect communities along the route by linking important amenities and facilities.
Our expanding network of cycle routes is an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets Approach - these aim to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.
Our proposals for Cycleway 4 include:
Cycleway 4 was called Cycle Superhighway 4. Throughout 2019 we will be combining most Cycle Superhighways and Quietways into the single Cycleways network.
We consulted on proposals for what will be Cycleway 4 in autumn 2017. See our response to issues raised during the consultation on the Cycle Superhighway 4 consultation page.
We plan to carry out a joint consultation with Southwark Council later in 2019 on detailed proposals for the Lower Road section of the route, together with their proposals to remove the existing gyratory there.
Depending on the results of that consultation, construction would start on the Lower Road section in 2020.
