CS4 would give roads in Bermondsey, Rotherhithe, Deptford and Greenwich a clearer and safer route for cycling, as well as new pedestrian crossings, improved public spaces and other improvements to make these areas more pleasant places to live, work, shop and spend time.
Our proposals also aim to accommodate the area's future growth. CS4 would help connect communities along the route, linking important amenities and facilities.
Details of the proposals are on the Cycle Superhighway 4 consultation page.
CS4 would form part of London's expanding network of Cycle Superhighways, an important part of the draft Mayor's Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets Approach, which aim to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.
Our proposals include:
The proposals do not include the Lower Road section of CS4. Lower Road is next to Canada Water, an area that will see major regeneration and development in the next few years.
Consultation on proposals for Lower Road will be done in 2018.
We have jointly commissioned a Strategic Transport Study with Southwark Council to understand how developments and future transport schemes would affect the existing road network. The study will be used to create the design for Lower Road, ensuring that it meets the future needs of the community.
