Dulwich/Lambeth Quietway - Southwark

Dulwich/Lambeth Quietway (Southwark)
Turney Road/Calton Avenue

The final workshop was held on Saturday 3 October. Around 70-80 residents attended plus several councillors and MP Helen Hayes.

Prior to the start a quickly arranged pre-meeting briefed residents of Court Lane, and the roads off it. They had not received the promised letter drop from Sustrans – the firm engaged to do the drop had apparently not delivered where they were supposed to.  NOTE there will be a further meeting for Court Lane area on Thursday 8 October, from 6-8 pm, in St Barnabas Church Community Suite on Calton Avenue.

A summary of comments made at the previous two meetings was shown on posters on the walls, and four basic options were displayed on tables, two for Turney Road and two for Calton Avenue. Attendees were asked to comment and select their preferred solution.

Turney Road
Option 1 kept the road open to through traffic and maintained residents’ parking in the road. Traffic islands were replaced by pedestrian crossings the central white line was removed, and there were additional double yellow lines particularly by the school at the Village end.

Option 2 showed the road blocked off to vehicles by the bridge and the traffic islands removed. Residents’ parking on the road was retained.

Calton Avenue
Option 1 showed most on street parking retained, traffic islands replaced by pedestrian crossings and the central white line removed. Controlled residents’ parking was added at the Village end of the road.

Option 2 showed the road blocked off to vehicles at the Townley Road junction.  Residents’ parking on street parking was retained, traffic islands were replaced by pedestrian crossings and the central white line removed. Controlled residents’ parking was added at the Village end of the road.

Dulwich Village Junction:
The four previous options for the junction were displayed including the two options which showed one way traffic up or down Court Lane though they had been decisively rejected at the previous meeting.

Two further options showed:
Option 1 access for vehicles from Court Lane and Calton Avenue to Dulwich Village was blocked off. Both roads remained two way and presumably had signs on Lordship Lane and Townley Road saying ‘No access to Dulwich Village’

Option 2 left the junction largely as one of the previous options where the current three lanes were reduced to two with the addition of a ‘No Right Turn’ into Village Way north.

Not such good news is the demise of Stefano’s, the delicatessen at No 37. Dulwich Village’s centre of gravity has moved southwards following the arrival of Gail’s and, with the temporary closure of the Crown and Greyhound, footfall at the north end is definitely down. Hopefully the new location for the post office will help to restore it.

Lorry crashes into Railway Bridge

Just before 11am on Wednesday 8th April a lorry with a grabber attachment hit the railway bridge on Village Way. The lorry smashed into the bridge and its crane went onto the track. Part of the crane fell onto the railway, causing a short circuit. The oncoming Southern train slammed on the brakes and avoided derailment. All 89 passengers were unhurt and were safely transferred onto another train. A Network Rail spokesman said the bridge has since been examined and repaired, normal services resumed at 2.15pm.
