In December 2016, Transport for London (TfL) approved just over £2.4m funding for improvement works at the northern end of Deptford High Street.
This will be match funded by a further £500,000.
The scheme will tie two areas of Deptford High Street together – the southern section from Giffin Street to Deptford Broadway (which was regenerated in 2013) with the northern section from Giffin Street to Evelyn Street (still to be regenerated).
This will create an improved environment that can accommodate the growing population in the area and the expected increase in the number of people who will be using Deptford Station. The scheme also aims to benefit residents and businesses in the area.
Regeneration works are due to start in early February 2017.
Traffic order on Deptford High Street
On 24 April 2017 Deptford High Street will become one way (northbound) between Sunday–Friday to enable essential works to take place. On Saturdays, the street will revert to the usual two-way operation outside of the usual market area.
Shops, businesses and the street market will continue to be open for business as usual. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.
