New cycle superhighway – Have your say

Consultation closes Sunday 12th November – Click here to give your views

Transport for London (TfL) is asking for views on a proposal for a cycle superhighway that will pass though and change roads in Deptford, called Cycle Superhighway 4.
This is part of the TfL strategy to encourage more Londoners to walk, cycle and use public transport, Cycle Superhighway 4 (CS4) will provide:

  • an uninterrupted, separate cycle route between Tower Bridge and Greenwich
  • new pedestrian crossings
  • better public spaces.

How will thus affect Deptford and surrounding areas?

TfL is proposing changes for Deptford including:

  • a new two-way segregated cycle track on Evelyn Street and Creek Road
  • new signal-controlled pedestrian crossings at Gosterwood and Deptford Church Street
  • upgrades to existing pedestrian crossings including six-metre-wide toucan crossing outside Deptford Park Primary School
  • a mini-roundabout which will replace a traffic lights at Oxestalls Road
  • wider footways and changes to Deptford High Street such as, trees and better pavements, to improve the overall environment
  • getting rid of the right turn on to Evelyn Street from Watergate Street and Deptford High Street and the right turn in to Deptford High Street from Evelyn Street
  • changes to some bus stop locations and layouts and bus stop bypasses for cyclists
  • replacing single yellow lines with double yellow lines along Evelyn Street and Creek Road.
