The junction of Bush Road and Rotherhithe New Road has a marked shared footway and a cycle crossing phase on the traffic lights. However the pavements are not marked, there are insufficient dropped kerbs and it is unclear as to how cyclists use the shared facility.
We ask that dropped kerbs be built to enable the shared-use footway to be suitable for use, and that the footway be suitably marked.

LCC policy area 3: Protected space on main roads
Quiet zones help keep through motor traffic away from residential streets. But often people will need to cycle along main roads: because that’s where shops and workplaces are, or because they are the most direct routes.
Currently, most main roads make cyclists mix with heavy and/or fast moving motor traffic, which most people find scary. Dedicated space for cycling on main roads gives people of all ages and abilities access to the whole road network by bicycle.
