This question and answer from last week’s Southwark council assembly may be of interest.

Cllr David Hubber (Lib Dem Surrey Docks ward councillor) In view of the fact that a reversion to two-way working in Lower Road, Rotherhithe, appears still to be a long way off, will the cabinet member consider removing the restriction on vehicles emerging from Plough Way and crossing Lower Road to enter the gyratory system?

Cllr Mark Williams (Labour cabinet member for transport) Feasibility work for the reintroduction of two-way working in the Surrey Quays area is well advanced and I expect proposals to be brought to public consultation later this year. Traffic analysis shows that removing much of the one-way system is possible and this will open up more direct routes to the peninsula as well as creating opportunities to improve the local environment. Removing the current restrictions on traffic exiting Plough Way will be part of these proposals. Analysis shows, however, that this can only work when introduced in conjunction with the wider traffic scheme.
