Quietway 1

Proposals for the Cycle Superhighway 4 in Deptford

The CS4 would create a continuous segregated cycle route between Tower Bridge and Greenwich, and improve pedestrian facilities and public spaces.

The project is a partnership between:

  • Transport for London
  • Southwark Council
  • Lewisham Council
  • Greenwich Council.

The benefits of creating a new cycle superhighway

CS4 would create a clearer and safer cycling route for roads in:

  • Bermondsey
  • Rotherhithe
  • Deptford
  • Greenwich.

It would also include:

  • new pedestrian crossings
  • improved public spaces
  • other improvements to make these areas more pleasant places to live, work, shop and spend time.

The proposals also aim to accommodate the area's future growth. CS4 would help connect communities along the route, linking important amenities and facilities.

What is being proposed

The proposals include:

  • two-way segregated cycle track on Tooley Street, Jamaica Road, Evelyn Street and Creek Road
  • five new signal-controlled pedestrian crossings and upgrades to over 20 existing pedestrian crossings
  • building on the recent short-term improvements at Rotherhithe roundabout by redesigning the roundabout to improve safety as part of our Safer Junctions programme
  • installing a new eastbound bus gate on the Jamaica Road approach to Rotherhithe roundabout – this will give buses priority at the roundabout and give them easier access into Lower Road
  • new and improved public spaces at Deptford High Street and Rotherhithe roundabout, including new paving and trees
  • new traffic restrictions, including banned turns on some side roads along Jamaica Road and at Deptford High Street
  • changes to some bus stop layouts and locations, including new bus stop bypasses for cyclists.
