Progress is being made to help improve safety at the Elephant and Castle northern roundabout. From 05:00 on Sunday 6 December, the roundabout will be removed and switched to two-way traffic, as part of the Road Modernisation Plan.

The work will start at 22:00 on Saturday 5 December and temporary traffic changes will be in place until completed. The following permanent changes will apply to all traffic:

  • No left turn from Newington Causeway onto New Kent Road

  • No right turn from New Kent Road onto Newington Causeway

  • No U-turns will be possible at the junction


Improvement work will continue in the area until summer 2016 to create new pedestrian crossings and new dedicated cycle routes.
