Work will start on the first section through Tooley Street, along Jamaica Road and to Rotherhithe roundabout. Tooley Street and Jamaica Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Expect delays on these roads, as well as when approaching Rotherhithe roundabout from the A101 Rotherhithe Tunnel and from Lower Road.

Buses in the area will continue as normal, but there may be delays from Tooley Street to Rotherhithe roundabout on the following routes: 47, 188, 381, C10, P12, N199, 381, N381, 343 and RV1. Find out more on our Cycleway 4 travel advice page.
