Southwark Council has widened some pavements in the borough after consulting residents.
The council launched a transport consultation in response to the Covid-19 crisis on how to make it easier for people to get around and social distance safely.
Cheltenham Road in Peckham Rye, Denmark Hill, Artichoke Place in Camberwell, and Sumner Street near Borough Market, were the first to be widened.
“We’re widening Cheltenham Road permanently to help people with social distancing.
“We’re also working on Denmark Hill, Artichoke Place, Sumner Street – and we’ll be adding more soon, thanks to over 1,500 suggestions from you,” a council spokesperson said.
The consultation remains open so residents can still suggest areas in their neighbourhood that need measures to make it easier for people to walk, cycle, and use public transport safely, while “limiting the impact of traffic pollution”.
