Improvements for cycling

  • Segregated two-way cycle track on the north side of Evelyn Street
  • The two-way cycle track would be 3 to 3.5 metres wide and the segregating kerb would be a minimum of 0.5 metres wide
  • Cycle priority provided across all side roads through raised junction treatments to reduce the speed of turning vehicles. Contrasting surfacing would be used at some side roads to remind motorists of the presence of cyclists

Improvements for walking

  • New 6-metre wide pedestrian crossing on main desire line at Deptford High Street replaces two existing crossings away from desire line
  • Sayes Court Estate fence line moved back to provide wider footway on the corner of New King Street, building on the current improvements being undertaken by Lewisham Council along Deptford High Street
  • Sayes Court Estate fence line along Evelyn Street moved back between 0.5 to 2.5 metres to provide footway and maintain eastbound bus lane
  • New paving and decluttering of footways, with potential for new public realm on the corner of New King Street

Changes to buses

  • Eastbound bus stop at Sayes Court Estate moved 80 metres west

Road design and layout

  • New King Street junction redesigned to provide wider footway and space to accommodate new pedestrian crossing
  • The following traffic restrictions would create conditions for a safe and efficient pedestrian crossing by removing potential conflicts from turning traffic:
    • Right-turn ban from Evelyn Street into Deptford High Street. Our traffic counts show this movement is made by a maximum of 35 vehicles per hour
    • Right-turn ban from Deptford High Street into Evelyn Street. Our traffic counts show this movement is made by a maximum of 189 vehicles per hour
    • Right-turn ban from Watergate Street into Evelyn Street. Our traffic counts show this movement is made by a maximum of 6 vehicles per hour

Parking and loading

  • Double yellow lines (no parking at any time) replace single yellow line on both sides of Evelyn Street between New King Street and McMillan Street
