Retaining Wall Dulwich Upper Wood

Dulwich Upper Wood is a 2.4-hectare local nature reserve and Site of Borough Importance for Nature Conservation, located in Crystal Palace.

Most of the woodland is enclosed by fencing however along the western boundary there is a 50m long brick wall, which had become unsafe due to severe deterioration. Part of the wall had been taken down for safety reasons. The wall is located at the southern end of Farquhar Road near the junction with Jasper Road. The pavement was closed off for a significant period.

A new retaining wall has been built, to replace the old wall that had collapsed. To ensure none of the trees in the woodland were affected, the pavement and carriageway have been realigned.

The scheme commenced on site in September 2022 and is now complete. The new retaining wall is in place, with a new pavement and cycle lane. The remaining works to the carriageway including speed cushions and resurfacing were completed in February 2023. 

The realignment of Farquhar Road includes a restriction to traffic turning right out of Jasper Road at the junction with Farquhar Road.
