A consultation has been launched by Lewisham Council on plans for a cycle lane running down Deptford Church Street.
The authority have created a webpage highlighting details and a timeframe. Work would begin in mid 2024 for completion in 2025.
This proposed lane would connect with Cycleway 4 at its northern end, which runs from Greenwich along Creek Road towards central London.
Deptford Church Street has been narrowed for many years due to Thames Tideway work. This project sees a permanent narrowing from two lanes to one.
Other changes include traffic lights installed at the junctions of Deptford Church Street with Coffey Street, Giffin Street and Reginald Road.
When Cycleway 4 was under consultation by Transport for London, Lewisham Council requested a spur onto Deptford Church Street to link to a future segregated lane heading south to Deptford Broadway.
Greenwich Council at the time responded seeking to keep guardrails.
The new lane would pass close to a number of housing sites both new and proposed.
One is at Number 1 Creekside. Over the past year other plans have been revealed and covered on this site including 231 student rooms submitted in April 2023.
Next door there’s a plan to build 38 new homes at 3 Creekside, submitted in March 2023.
Redevelopment at the former Tidemill School is also seeing over 200 homes. There’s also proposals to build new homes beside and above the Bird’s Nest pub.
Plans for homes at Sun Wharf beside the creek total 220 flats, with recent details on demolition of existing buildings on site being submitted.
Much of those new homes at various sites are car-free.
