Overview

We have made some changes to Tooley Street and Duke Street Hill as part of an experiment. We hope these changes will help people who can to walk and cycle more, to help maintain space on public transport for those who need it and help people to avoid using their cars as much as possible.

We want to know your views and experiences of these changes. We are holding a six-month consultation on the Tooley Street experimental scheme. You can reply by following the link to the Survey below. We want this consultation to be accessible to everyone.

The purpose of this scheme 

Busy location

London Bridge is Britain’s fourth busiest National Rail station and the fifth busiest station on the Tube network. We anticipate there will be an increase in customers arriving at London Bridge station wanting to continue their onward journeys around London by foot or cycle as lockdown measures are eased and limited public transport capacity is utilised by those who need it most. The numbers of people cycling in the area is high and we expect this will increase as more people return to work and social activities.

Enabling walking and cycling

Tooley Street is a key strategic cycling corridor and is in the top 5% for current and future cycling demand in London. The route is already popular with people cycling and the opening of Cycleway 4 further east is likely to increase cycling demand even more. Creating a safer cycling corridor here will link with Cycleway 4 between Tower Bridge Road and Rotherhithe with changes on London Bridge. It will also link to future improved cycling infrastructure in Deptford, Greenwich and Woolwich.

Keeping people safe 

In the three years ending June 2020, there were 27 collisions which led to people being hurt. Of these, 15 collisions involved people cycling being injured; one person was seriously injured.

A map giving an overview of the changes we will be making can be found in the 'Documents' section.
