'Southwark Park Road' to 'Jamaica Road' Junction

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

On Monday 28th September 2020, as a result of a public consultation that was launched by Transport for London and Southwark Council on the 27th February 2019 and concluded on 2nd April 2019, the right turn leading out of Southwark Park Road onto Jamaica Road was banned. 

According to Transport for London, this amendment was put in place as a result of "safety and congestion concerns raised regarding additional strategic traffic using Southwark Park Road to access Rotherhithe Tunnel." 

However, due to growing concerns by residents of both Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and neighbouring areas, we believe, as a community, that this amendment should be withdrawn, and for the right turn into Jamaica Road to be reinstalled for use by all motor vehicles.

These concerns include an increased amount of congestion leading down to Rotherhithe Tunnel, due to backlogs of traffic trying to access Jamaica Road from alternative routes, so that they can travel to places such as Surrey Quays, Deptford, Downtown, etc.. 

Another concern caused by this amendment is the vast generation of noise pollution at the junction due to the continuous queuing of traffic, as caused by events, detailed above. 

We're asking Transport for London and Southwark Council to either launch another public consultation or reopen the existing one regarding their plans into the banning of the right turn from Southwark Park Road onto Jamaica Road.
