Have your say on proposed changes to Borough High Street

Closed 19 Jan 2017

Opened 8 Dec 2016

Overview

We would like to hear your views on some proposed changes to parking and loading arrangements in front of 44-62 Borough High Street. The purpose of these changes is to improve the reliability of bus journey times in this area.

Background

There is currently a loading and disabled parking bay in front of 60-62 Borough High Street. When the loading bay is in use it creates a pinch point in the road that often prevents buses and other large vehicles from progressing northbound.

What are we proposing?

  • We propose to move the loading and disabled parking bay by a distance of just under 20 metres from the main Borough High Street carriageway onto the nearby slip road. The slip road is used less frequently by general traffic than the main carriageway and is not used by any bus routes
  • We propose to move an existing motorcycle parking bay on the slip road by approximately 8 metres further to the north, to accommodate the loading and parking bay
  • We are also proposing a new road sign, advising that the right turn from the southbound Borough High Street onto the Borough High Street slip road is unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles 

Our investigations suggest that there is little demand for the right turn onto the slip road, and that there are alternative routes available to drivers who wish to access the westbound Southwark Street.
