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.
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.
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.
