Camberwell Traffic Management

Southwark Council want your feedback on how we can improve the Camberwell area for the people who live and spend time there by reclaiming the streets from motor traffic congestion.

Closed Submit your comments

Overview

Our aim for the Camberwell area is to reclaim the streets from motor traffic congestion and to transform them into the most attractive and liveable neighbourhoods possible.

We think the best way to achieve this is by keeping through traffic on surrounding major roads whilst maintaining local access for residents and businesses and making it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to travel through the neighbourhood.

To achieve these objectives, we will need to make fundamental changes to the street infrastructure. These will have impacts for the travel behaviour of residents, businesses and visitors to the area – the journeys you take, the routes you use and the places you stop. We need your help to make the right changes, so please fill in the survey below to tell us what you would like to see improved and how we can make it easier for you to travel actively.

Drop-in Session

We will be holding a public drop-in session at The Copleston Community Centre Café between 4:30-7:30pm on Thursday 6 June.

Please come along and talk to our team, make your suggestions and discuss any concerns you have.

Frequently Asked Questions

What area does the project cover?

The project covers the following area:

Please click to see a larger image.

Why have you chosen this area?

We are aware of many issues with motor traffic congestion in this area. We can see from traffic flows that much of this is caused by through traffic using smaller roads to get around, and that the issues are connected across the area. Therefore, it makes sense to look at solutions across this whole area.

What are the project timescales?

  • Early engagement – May / June 2019
  • Design development – June / July 2019
  • Workshops – July 2019
  • final report / recommendations – Aug 2019

What stage is the project at now?

The project is currently in the early engagement phase, where we are gathering your comments and suggestions for the area, to help inform the proposals.

What happens next?

Following the early engagement, we shall undertake a review of comments and suggestions provided by residents, visitors and businesses to understand which improvements are supported and how this fits in with the key objectives. We shall present this back to Southwark Council, so they can understand the current situation.

We shall develop a number of key improvements for the area based on the feedback received in the early engagement.

What sort of proposals will be looked at?

This project will not just consider one intervention, but a series of improvements made across a whole area. These will be led by what the local community tell us in this early engagement, but are likely to include things like better street lighting, improvements to public spaces, locations for electric vehicle charging points, improved cycle parking facilities and improving and maintaining pavements as an example

Will there be any road closures / works happening as part of the project?

At this stage there will not be any road closures or other road works associated with this project.

What is a liveable neighbourhood?

A Liveable Neighbourhoods is classed by TfL as an attractive, healthy, accessible and safe neighbourhood for people to live / work in and visit. Typically, this may involve changes to town centres and their surrounding residential areas to improve conditions for walking and cycling and reduce traffic dominance. This may include new pedestrian crossings, a network of good cycle routes, reduced parking provision, redesigned junctions, restrictions on motor traffic in town centres, high streets and residential streets, and wider improvements against each of the ten Healthy Streets Indicators

What are the Healthy Streets outcomes?

The ten outcomes are:

  • Pedestrians from all walks of life: Streets should be inviting for everyone to spend time and make journeys on foot, cycle or by public transport.
  • Easy to cross: The types of crossing needed will vary, but on all streets it should be easy for people of all ages and abilities to find a safe place to cross without having to go out of their way.
  • Shade and shelter: High winds, heavy rain, high temperatures and sun exposure can have a significant effect on people’s ability to travel actively and spend time in the street as well as their enjoyment. The need for shade and shelter will increase as the climate changes and London experiences more extreme weather.
  • Places to stop and rest: Ensuring there are places where people have room to stop or somewhere to rest benefits everyone, including local businesses, as people will be more willing to visit, spend time in, or meet other people on these streets.
  • Not too noisy: Reducing traffic volumes and speeds, quieter vehicles and low noise road surfaces will all benefit health as well as improve the ambience of street environments, encouraging people to interact and travel actively.
  • People choose to walk, cycle and use public transport: Walking, cycling and using public transport should be the most attractive ways to travel, and making them more enjoyable will benefit everyone, including those already travelling on foot, by bike or public transport.
  • People feel safe: People will be less willing to walk, cycle or use public transport if they feel unsafe on a street. The whole community should feel comfortable and safe from crime, intimidation or injury on any street day and night.
  • Things to see and do: People are more likely to travel actively when there are things to do locally and will also be less dependent on cars if shops and services are within walking distance.
  • People feel relaxed: People are more likely to walk or cycle if they feel relaxed and find it enjoyable. Good quality street design, a clean, well-kept environment and plenty of plants can help create attractive and relaxing places to walk and cycle.
  • Clean air: Anything that significantly reduces the amount of traffic on the road or reduces the number of high polluting vehicles will help improve local air quality and will contribute to any citywide measures.
