Rotherhithe Transport Survey
We have assembled a variety of potential transport solutions which vary in status from “decided and going ahead” (Rotherhithe Bridge) to completely “off the wall” (new tube station). Whatever the status, we can represent the community better with a knowledge of your views.
Notes (scroll down to skip to the survey)
Q1: Rotherhithe Cycle and Pedestrian Bridge
The Mayor has said this is going ahead, but his timetable is already slipping and we need to maintain pressure
Q2: Bring the Cycle Hire scheme (Boris Bikes) to Rotherhithe
This is long overdue. There is a very obvious gap in provision and we are being unfairly disadvantaged. Although there is agreement that it should happen, neither TfL nor Southwark Council wants to fund it
Q3: Circular (Shuttle) bus route within Rotherhithe
The existing C10 and 381 services are erratic and frequently overcrowded, with problems arising from traffic problems elsewhere on the very long routes. A circular/shuttle bus connecting residents to Canada Water, Rotherhithe Station, River Boat and Surrey Quays would receive this.
Q4: Improve the timetable of the Thames Clipper at Greenland Pier
We have a second-rate service compared with other piers, with the first Eastbound service at 11:00 and alternate services not stopping during the day. We should have the same timetable as the rest of the route.
Q5: Add a new Thames Clipper stopping point near Rotherhithe Station
The Rotherhithe Peninsula has a long river frontage. There is a long gap between Tower Gateway and Canary Wharf and we are proposing a stop near Rotherhithe Village/Rotherhithe Station which would directly relieve overcrowding at Canada Water, a short walk away.
Q6: New Jubilee Line station between Canary Wharf and Canada Water
We have heard a suggestion that a new Jubilee Line station could be opened at Durrands Wharf by opening up the existing ventilation shaft. This would be half-way between the Canary Wharf and Canada Water stations and would relieve pressure on Canada Water. It would provide access to and from the proposed Rotherhithe Bridge. The argument against is that it is not needed because the bridge itself provides access to the Jubilee at Canary Wharf. But we included it here to give you a chance to have your say!
