Mott MacDonald appointed by London Borough of Southwark to help with road safety programme

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by the London Borough of Southwark to carry out four local safety scheme studies in Rotherhithe, East Dulwich and Borough. The project is part of an ongoing programme of measures underway in Southwark to improve road safety and help to reduce the 3500 deaths on Britain’s roads each year.

The four separate sites have been earmarked for action following their poor safety record. The studies will take a corridor approach to the problem looking at a length of road in its entirety rather than concentrating on a single site where a safety issue has been highlighted to ensure that the solution improves safety along the entire stretch of road.

Mott MacDonald will carry out research, preliminary design, consultation and detailed design for all four areas and will produce comprehensive and innovative traffic management solutions. The consultant will kick off by setting up focus groups to include people with an interest in the area to help them recognise the key problems, assess local concerns and identify aspirations. Information from the focus groups will be examined along with the statistical information that has brought the problems to the attention of the council. Public consultation will take place once solutions have been considered.

It is hoped that schemes would be implemented by March 2005.
