|A map of the improvement works|
"Lewisham Council has got some funding from Transport for London to pay for improvements to the north end of Deptford High Street and the six-month programme of construction work is set to start this week."
The work will involve widening the pavements, planting trees, installing new seating, traffic calming measures and a new lighting scheme under the railway bridge that bisects the street.
This looks like a sensible and welcome set of enhancements which will create a more pedestrian-friendly environment, helping to sustain the new businesses which are being attracted to the area. Deptford's transformation continues apace.
