We are committed to improving the local environment so that more people of all ages and ability can choose to walk or cycle. We would like to know your views on proposals that are part of the Ruskin Park to Kennington Park Greenway.

What is the Ruskin Park to Kennington Park Greenway?

The Ruskin Park to Kennington Park Greenway is a cycle route that will improve access and connections to a number of green spaces in the borough for cyclists and pedestrians. This includes Ruskin Park, Myatts’ Field and Kennington Park.

Schemes comprise measures such as raised speed tables, kerb build outs and new footway paving. The Greenway is funded by Transport for London as part of the Local Implementation Plan (LIP) budget.

How does this affect me?

We plan to implement three of the Ruskin Park to Kennington Park Greenway schemes in the early part of 2017, as Phase 2 of the overall Greenway programme.

The locations of the schemes in Phase 2 and the main measures proposed are summarised below. Where space permits and there are no issues with underground utilities, new cycle stands will be considered at all locations. There are no changes proposed to the waiting or loading restrictions with these schemes. Any proposed changes as a result of the Controlled Parking Zone consultation can be delivered around these schemes.

1. Calais Street/ Cormont Road/ Halsmere Road Junction

  • Proposed raised table at the junction to reduce general traffic speeds on Calais Street and Cormont Road
  • Footway build out to increase the footway width by the park entrance allowing the removal of the pedestrian guard railing
  • New right turn cycle filter from Calais Street to Cormont Road

For more information please see design proposal

2. Cormont Road/ Brief Street Junction

  • Proposed raised table at the junction to reduce general traffic speeds on Cormont Road and Brief Street
  • Footway build out to increase the footway width by the park entrance allowing the removal of the pedestrian guard railing

3. Knatchbull Road/ Lilford Road/ Minet Road Junction

  • Proposed raised table at the junction to reduce general traffic speeds on Knatchbull Road, Lilford Road and Minet Road
  • New give-way markings on all four arms of the junction to encourage drivers to be more cautious

When is the work likely to start?

Road works to implement the Phase 2 Greenway schemes will be carried out in early 2017. We’ll contact you closer to the time to let you know exact dates when work will be carried out in your area.
