A very long Act to improve the roads in south east London (then on the Kent-Surrey border) under the control of the Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and Deptford Turnpike Trust originally established in 1748. Many other acts are also cited in the preamble. The Act names the Trustees and the administration and funding of the Trust by the tolls specified. Much further detail is given on such matters as the laying of water pipes, regulating signs, preventing nuisances and obstructions, the construction of adjoining houses and the employment of statute labour to repair the roads.
