£3.4 million will be injected into improving Southwark's road network, with work on both minor and major roads in SE1 due to start in August.

The minor roads are Harper Road and Copperfield Street. The major roads include Newington Causeway and Borough High Street.

The works will aim to improve disabled access and road safety conditions, reduce vehicle noise and vibration and remove unnecessary or damaged signs and posts. Work will also be carried out on improving and repairing pavements.

Cllr Richard Thomas, Southwark Council's Executive Member for Environment and Transport, said: "We're committed to increasing the quality of all the roads under our jurisdiction in the borough.

"We have had to prioritise those that are most in need of improvement, but hope to be in a position to commit additional funding in the near future to ensure that all the roads we have responsibility for are brought up to the highest standard."

Southwark Council's Executive has allocated 2.4 million for improvements to the borough's minor roads throughout the borough. The additional 1 million has been secured from Transport for London for work on Southwark's major highways.
