We are seeking your views to make improvements to the Bricklayers Arms roundabout, New Kent Road and Old Kent Road.
In line with the Mayor’s Healthy Streets approach to make streets healthier, safer and more welcoming we will be realigning the roundabout to create a bus lane on the roundabout slip road which can be used by both buses and cyclists. This will aim to make the road more attractive to cyclists and improve journey times for bus services, reducing the reliance on private cars. Our proposals include:
Removing existing islands on Old Kent Road and the roundabout, and modifying the road layout to direct general traffic away from the slip road and onto the roundabout
Creating new traffic islands on the Old Kent Road, New Kent Road and the roundabout to separate the slip road from the roundabout
Creating a bus gate for buses, taxis, cycles and motorcycles to use the cut through in the traffic island to access the new segregated bus lane on the slip road
Changing the westbound bus lane on New Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Changing the northbound bus lane on Old Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Red line markings to change from single to double red lines on Old Kent Road and New Kent Road
