Thursday 8 September

RSVP Damian.O'Brien@southwark.gov.uk
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. Cllr Damian O'Brien (Grange ward) has arranged 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.
