Southwark to grow cycling spine

Wed 24 June 2015, 11:35 am

A new cycle route, dubbed the Southwark Spine, has been mapped out by planners at the council.

The first phase on the north-south route will run from St George’s Circus to Dulwich Library, with an extension south to Forest Hill and north to London Bridge being considered. 

The Spine route is expected to cost nearly £3.2 million, with £2 million of funding allocated by the council to date.

Councillor Darren Merrill, cabinet member for environment and public realm, said: "The plan gives us clear direction on the ambition to make Southwark a cycling friendly borough for young and old."
