  • Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich Phase 3

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Our Healthy Streets: Dulwich                                         

    Recent projects and engagement with residents in the Dulwich area have shown a common theme - there's too much traffic in the area - and this is having an adverse effect on local life.

    We want to work with residents to address these concerns about traffic volume and its impact on the community.

    • streets in the Dulwich Village area carry much higher than the average traffic on similar residential streets in the borough
    • in the peak hours some residential streets are carrying more traffic than major A-roads.
    • the peak hours are between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 8pm. This unusual traffic pattern shows that traffic using the area includes significant volumes of commuter traffic
    • the pollution profile shows that air pollution is worse between 7am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm
    • there are very high numbers of pupils crossing the roads during the peak hours
    • over 7000 through journeys are made in the area in a typical day. They enter and exit the neighbourhood within less than 10 to 15 minutes

  • Balfour Street Raised Junction Survey

    Created by Sean Howes // 1 thread

    Why We Are Consulting

    Programming for forthcoming works have identified there will likely be significant disruptions to residents during works to improve the junctions on Balfour Street with John Maurice Close, Henshaw Street and Chatham Street.

    The works are now entering the most challenging phases of the project that are likely to cause the most amount of disruption.  These next phases of work involve implementing the junction improvements to Orb St, Stead St, Wadding St, Balfour St/Rodney Road, Chatham St, Henshaw St and John Maurice Close/Victory Place. 

    These works are likely to cause significant disruption to residents, therefore we are proposing an alternative option that will maintain vehicle access into John Maurice Close/Victory Place and Henshaw Street, but will significantly alter the aesthetic of the scheme and reduce the effectiveness in creating a more pedestrian friendly street character.

    We are asking residents to share their thoughts with us on the two options, to help us better understand the impact these works will have.

  • Improvements to the Bricklayers Arms Roundabout, New Kent Road and Old Kent Road

    Created by Sean Howes // 2 threads

    Overview

    We are seeking your views to make improvements to the Bricklayers Arms roundabout, New Kent Road and Old Kent Road.

     

    In line with the Mayor’s Healthy Streets approach to make streets healthier, safer and more welcoming we will be realigning the roundabout to create a bus lane on the roundabout slip road which can be used by both buses and cyclists.  This will aim to make the road more attractive to cyclists and improve journey times for bus services, reducing the reliance on private cars. Our proposals include:       

     

    Removing existing islands on Old Kent Road and the roundabout, and modifying the road layout to direct general traffic away from the slip road and onto the roundabout

    Creating new traffic islands on the Old Kent Road, New Kent Road and the roundabout to separate the slip road from the roundabout

    Creating a bus gate for buses, taxis, cycles and motorcycles to use the cut through in the traffic island to access the new segregated bus lane on the slip road

     

    Changing the westbound bus lane on New Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

     

    Changing the northbound bus lane on Old Kent Road to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

     

    Red line markings to change from single to double red lines on Old Kent Road and New Kent Road

  • Duke Hill St/Tooley St

    Created by SallyEva // 1 thread

    Proposals include:

    Introducing a 20mph speed limit along entire length of Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street (between Borough High Street and Tower Bridge Road)
    Introducing a 2 metre wide mandatory cycle lane westbound, on Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street, running between Borough High Street and Bermondsey Street junctions, separated from traffic with wands on the Duke Street Hill section
    Introducing a protected right turn ‘pocket’ for cyclists waiting to turn right into Bermondsey Street from Tooley Street
    Making Duke Street Hill no entry, apart from cyclists and buses, from the junction with A3 Borough High Street. This will mean that eastbound traffic along Duke Street Hill and Tooley Street as far as the junction with Bermondsey Street is restricted to buses and cycles only.
    Restricting access from side roads onto Tooley Street to westbound travel only. Any motorized vehicle turning onto Tooley Street from the following roads will not be able to turn onto and travel eastbound towards Bermondsey Street:
    Tooley Street onto Duke Hill Street
    Bridge Yard onto Tooley Street
    Cottons Lane onto Tooley Street
    Hay’s Lane onto Tooley Street
    Battlebridge Lane onto Tooley Street
    Westbound traffic will continue to be able to travel along this section of highway as it does at present (i.e. accessing via Bermondsey Street or from roads further east) which lead onto Tooley Street.

    This will be an interim scheme, reducing traffic in the short term. We are working on a more transformational scheme for Tooley Street, to extend the high-quality cycling provision proposed as part of Cycle Superhighway 4 towards London Bridge.
