The Redcross Way scheme provides a great opportunity to link local open spaces, make the street safer for school children and more enjoyable for the community. Sometimes the road is an unsafe and unfriendly place for pedestrians and our aim is to turn that around.
The first phase of the project was officially opened in May 2010. This part of the project focussed creating a greener link between between Red Cross Gardens, St Josephs and Cathedrals Primary Schools and Little Dorrit Court. Phase 2 was implemented in 2011. This entailed improving the pavements towards both ends of the street, and pedestrianising Disney Street.
The project, funded by a range of different sources including Transport for London and the Forestry Commission was managed by Southwark Council working in partnership with local residents, businesses and organisations like BOST on wider improvements to the adjacent housing estates.
