Fixing the problems in the short and the long term
Liberal Democrat Councillors have been calling on Transport for London to sort out Jamaica Road chaos for many years. We are very pleased that they are planning to redesign the Rotherhithe Tunnel roundabout which will help in the long term. However, in the short term, we are arguing for ‘yellow boxes’ on Jamaica Road – at the junctions with St James Rd and with Abbey Street. Although this won’t resolve the cause of the problem, it should ease some of the congestion as it would stop vehicles turning right blocking the road completely.
