Local Traffic Problems
Thursday 8 September 7pm Southwark Council Offices Tooley St
Local traffic and its impact on air quality have long been a concern to many local businesses and residents. As the London Bridge redevelopment work changes focus from St Thomas St to the south of the railway line to Tooley St to the North these issues will again be highlighted. Grange Ward councillor Damian O’Brien and others have been working hard over the past few months to bring the various bodies who dictate traffic management issues together before a public meeting in an attempt to find some strategy for improving the present deeply unsatisfactory situation. Below is his invitation to all to attend. We are pleased to relay this invitation and would urge anyone concerned with the current situation to try and attend.

Subject: Invitation to have your say about traffic planning in your area
Transport and traffic flow issues around Bermondsey and London Bridge have been the cause of much discussion over the years. Residents and community groups often feel that all the different agencies operate in isolation to each other.
I am arranging a meeting to bring together all the interested parties. The specific objective is to agree how to create a traffic management plan for the area between Tooley Street, Borough High Street, Great Dover Street and Tower Bridge Road (if the group feel this is the right boundary).
Transport for London, Network Rail, Southwark Council, Team London Bridge and Guy’s Hospital have already confirmed their attendance and will give a short presentation to the audience whose input will be critical.
With this in mind, I would like to invite you to attend. Please bring along anyone else who you think would be interested in local transport issues. I hope as many interested groups in the area as possible, including schools and community groups, come along and have their say.
