This month, three schemes in the Dulwich area are being consulted on as part of a big review. At Southwark Cyclists, we think there is a lot to love about the schemes, with some of the measures leading to amazing increases in walking and cycling. But for the schemes to be considered really successful in achieving the council’s worthy aims, certain tweaks are needed, and more measures need to be introduced.

If you’d like to read more about our thoughts on the scheme, read our blog post here.

Respond to the consultation and prioritise answering question 2 under each measure. Our responses are as follows:

  1. Traffic filter in Dulwich Village
    • Select “Option B: Retain it as it is”
  2. Timed closure at junction of Dulwich Village/Burbage Road with College Road/Gallery Road 
    • Select “Option D:  Retain the measure, but modify/ reduce the hours of restrictions”
    • Add:
      • Make the camera on Dulwich Village operate 24/7 and in both directions, so it becomes what in other parts of London is called a “bus gate”.
      • Replace the camera on Burbage Rd with a 24/7 modal filter so it becomes no through route for motor vehicles but full access for walking and cycling. Install additional planting and seating.
      • Introduce additional modal filters in the area, in particular on Red Post Hill to create a longer, safer, north south cycle route
      • Install cycle tracks on all main roads
  3. Timed closure at junction of Turney Road and Burbage Road 
    • Select “Option D:  Retain the measure, but modify/ reduce the hours of restrictions”
