The proposals under consultation to re-route the South Circular A205 road in Catford are estimated to cost £55 to £60 million of public money. The figures were released following a public question to Lewisham Council’s Deputy Mayor responsible for planning.
Lewisham Council believes that the majority of the funding will come from the Government via the Department of Transport’s Major Road Network Fund. Further contributions are expected from Transport for London and Lewisham Council itself.
Lewisham Council were unable to provide a breakdown nor confirm estimates of their own contributions to the scheme.
