Below is a link to short report that has been drawn together by Southwark Living Streets from the comments of many local people and groups.
We are keen to ensure that the momentum for making improvements to Borough High Street is not lost in the light of all the development which is going on in and around the local area.
A major catalyst for this report is our fears about danger to pedestrians and cyclists at the Borough High Street junctions with St Thomas St linked to the re-opening of the new frontage of Borough Market and the imminent opening of The Shard. Every day thousands of new journeys which will be made across these junctions on foot – there remains no green man crossing at the junction of Borough High St and St Thomas St.
We and other groups renew our call for safety improvements at these junctions and more generally for the street to balance better the needs of those who live, work and shop on it with those who pass through it by motor vehicle.
