Construction work on Cycleway 4, a major new cycle route between Tower Bridge and Greenwich, reaches a significant milestone next week as construction work begins on Creek Road in Deptford ahead of schedule.
The new segregated cycle route will enable thousands more people to make everyday journeys by bike, with new pedestrian crossings set to make the area much easier to get around for people walking.
Construction of the new route began in Jamaica Road in Bermondsey in July.
Work on these first sections of the route, including a complete overhaul of Rotherhithe roundabout and almost 4km of segregated Cycleway along Tooley Street and Jamaica Road, is set to be complete by spring next year.
The next phase of work will start tomorrow to build new segregated cycle lanes and redesigned junctions along Creek Road between Deptford Church Street and Norman Road in Greenwich.
