Lower Road Traffic Issues

The Southwark Liberal Democrats are calling on Southwark Council and Transport for London (TfL) to work constructively with residents to solve the ongoing traffic issues on Lower Road, especially after a cyclist was recently hospitalised after an accident at the Ann Moss Way/Lower Road junction.

Residents have been experiencing severe traffic congestion since last summer and despite the completion of a new segregated cycle lane, the problem persists. The Council says this is partly down to traffic light timings and the abuse of parking and loading blocking traffic.

Cllr Rachel Bentley (Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Bermondsey & Old Southwark) and local Liberal Democrat Cllr Adam Hood have called for adjustment to the traffic signals and parking bays, installation of 'no U-turn' sign on Worgan Street, monthly meetings to discuss residents' concerns, a full review of traffic measures at the Ann Moss Way/Lower Road junction, and improvements to cyclist and pedestrian safety and bus journeys.
