The Lewisham Gateway site has great potential, but its current use as a roundabout is a barrier that divides the town centre and prevents further regeneration.
- Stations have poor links to the town centre
- Railway and main roads form barriers to the north and west
- Roundabout and main roads divide the town centre
- Waterways covered, unattractive and underused
- Poor quality/traffic-dominated open spaces
- Intimidating areas at night
- Difficult road crossings for pedestrians and cyclists
