Dulwich review

Street specific concerns and recommendations

East Dulwich Grove

  • shorter timed restrictions across the whole Dulwich area allows traffic to flow more evenly at key junctions.
  • change of fixed closure along Melbourne Grove South to school street timed restrictions.
  • junction and further route improvement work to ease congestion issues
  • strengthening of cycle routes and protection for cyclists along East Dulwich Grove helps link up key active travel corridors to more routes
  • replacement of fixed closure on Derwent Grove at Grove Vale with camera gate to allow full access for all emergency service vehicles

Melbourne Grove and Lordship Lane

  • fixed closure on Melbourne Grove North moved to junction with East Dulwich Grove to create direct access to the businesses and retailers from Grove Vale
    • these will be carried out as a trial order to allow flexibility for businesses and residents to find the right solutions that support the needs of traders and protects active travel and a school street
  • changing the fixed closure of Melbourne Grove South to timed restrictions also improves accessibility along a large section of Lordship Lane encouraging both passing trade and destination visits for shops, retailers and hospitality
  • reduction of restrictions to school street times helps the flow of traffic to ease congestion points along Lordship Lane
  • Dulwich Village (College Road roundabout) / Burbage Road /Turney Road/ Townley Road
  • reduction of restrictions to school street times to allow traffic to flow more evenly at key junctions
  • exemptions to timed restrictions for Blue Badge holders, taxis, Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND), rapid response health care workers, buses and emergency services
  • we'll work with residents and the school on Townley Road to improve the current arrangements to create a school street to assist with peak times

Calton Avenue /Court Lane/ Dulwich Village junction

  • access for emergency vehicles at the junctions of Dulwich Village /Calton Avenue and Court Lane
  • co-design of the public realm at the junction of Calton Avenue with Dulwich Village and Court Lane allows for community led involvement in shaping the public realm to become a visually impressive, aesthetically pleasing local asset supporting walking and cycling routes within the village and acting as a hub for the wider active travel networks
  • parallel work with TfL to make improvements to junction safety for cyclists and improve the flow of traffic at the junction of Village Way, Dulwich Village and Red Post Hill

Croxted Road and cross boundary areas

  • shorter timed restrictions across the whole Dulwich area allows traffic to flow more evenly at key junctions during peak times, especially after 4.30pm and evenings
  • removal of fixed closures and school street timed restrictions also creates more parallel routes easing dispersal for most of each day
  • work with Lambeth and TfL to explore measures to ease congestion, improve bus journey and promote safer cycling in the Herne Hill area
  • collaboration with Lambeth to develop a coherent road management strategy in relation to parking controls and enforcement, as well as traffic monitoring and data sharing with the community
  • additional resources for residents and local groups to improve air quality and road safety along Croxted Road and the adjacent Herne Hill area
  • investigate strengthening of cycle routes and protection for cyclists along Croxted Road and Herne Hill helps link up key active travel corridors to more routes
  • replacement of fixed closure with camera gates allows better access for all emergency service vehicles, Blue Badge Holders, taxis and SEND travel to local specialist schools
