Burbage Road - Zebra Crossing

Closed 13 Feb 2017

Opened 18 Jan 2017

Feedback updated 2 Mar 2017

We asked

We want to improve pedestrian amenity on Burbage Road. We asked what you thought of our proposal to provide a new raised zebra crossing.

You said

We received 36 responses: 86.11% supported the proposals, 8.33% opposed them and 5.56% had no opinion. A key concern raised was that there is a lack of space for vehicles to wait between the proposed zebra crossing and Half Moon Lane, resulting in vehicles obstructing traffic along Half Moon Lane.

We did

We have made some minor changes to our proposals that better address your concerns and suggestions, see 'Burbage Road Outline Design - Post consultation' at the bottom of this page. These proposals will proceed onto subsequent design phases, followed by statutory consultation and implementation in mid-2017.


The Village Ward Councillors and Southwark Council are seeking feedback on a new zebra crossing on Burbage Road, close to the junction of Half Moon Lane.

Feedback to this proposal must be submitted by Monday 13 February 2017.

The consultation plan (an illustration of the proposal) can be found at the bottom of this page.

Why your views matter

The proposal is the result of a successful bid for Cleaner, Greener, Safer (CGS) funding, requesting the provision of a raised zebra crossing (zebra crossing on a flat top table) on Burbage Road at its junction with Half Moon Lane. The funding was awarded by Dulwich Community Council as part of the CGS programme.

The proposal aims to provide pedestrian facilities at the intersection, to improve safety and level of service for all users, particularly school children.

The following changes are proposed:

  • A new raised zebra crossing is proposed approximately 3.5 meters from Half Moon Lane. The location is aimed at mitigating safety issues caused by through-traffic on Half Moon Lane conflicting with turning-traffic from Half Moon Lane into Burbage Road.
  • Removal of the existing speed table at the junction of Half Moon Lane.
  • Two parking spaces to be relocated from the western side to the eastern side of Burbage Road. This is to ensure sufficient visibility between pedestrians and traffic.
  • The ambulance bays will be removed to accommodate the relocated parking spaces.
  • There will be no net loss of public parking spaces.

What happens next

We will:

  • Consider all the feedback received and make decisions on the final design
  • Respond to those who provide feedback.  The response will include a summary of the feedback received, responses to feedback and will outline the final decisions on the project.


When will the proposed changes be implemented?

If, after considering the feedback received and Southwark decide to progress this project, physical works are planned to commence in 2017.
