Dog Kennel Hill Junction and Champion Hill 'No Entry'

Closes 15 Mar 2020

Opened 10 Feb 2020

Overview

Summary

We would like to know your view on our proposals for:

  1. Improvements to pedestrian and cycle facilities at the Dog Kennel Hill junction with Grove Hill Road and Champion Hill; and
  2. Making permanent the ‘No Entry' on Champion Hill.

These changes will improve safety, encourage cycling and walking in line with the Healthy Streets approach, and will enable the junction to form part of Cycleway 17. These changes represent the first stage of wider area changes as part of the Camberwell area-wide study.

The key measures proposed are:

  • Segregated westbound cycle lane in Grove Hill Road;
  • Separate cycle signal at the Grove Hill Road junction;
  • Early release for cyclists at Champion Hill;
  • Footway widening in Grove Hill Road; and
  • ‘No entry' to be made permanent in Champion Hill.

For further details, please see the design drawings.

How to Give Us Your Views:

The consultation will be open from Monday 10 February 2020 to Sunday 15 March 2020. Please ensure we recieve your response before the end of this period.

We will be hosting a drop-in session to answer any questions relating to the design and consultation process. This is going to take place on Tuesday 25th February 4pm- 8pm at the Albrighton Centre (37 Albrighton Road, SE22 8AH).

Background and previous consultation:

Previous and current consultations in the area include:

  • 2015 – We consulted on changes to the Dog Kennel Hill junction as part of Cycleway 17 but found the volume of traffic was too high. This junction therefore severs the strategic North-South cycle route.
  • 2018 – We consulted on the Champion Hill ‘No Entry’ Trial with the aim of reducing traffic on residential roads and encouraging walking and cycling in the area.
  • 2019 – We implemented the Champion Hill ‘No Entry’ Trial and monitored results (see ‘Outcome of the Trial’ section below).
  • 2020 – We are consulting on improvements to walking and cycling facilities at the Dog Kennel Hill Junction and making the Champion Hill ‘No Entry’ permanent.
  • 2020 – Early engagement for Camberwell Area Study.

 

Outcome of the trial

Following the ‘No Entry’ trial on Champion Hill, a Monitoring Study was undertaken and a focus group was formed with key community leaders. For the full report, please see Champion Hill Area Monitoring Study.  Key findings include:

  • Traffic counts have significantly decreased on Champion Hill and also generally reduced on other residential roads in the immediate area;
  • There have been no significant changes to bus journey times along the A2112;
  • There has been an increase in cyclists using the Dog Kennel Hill junction and Champion Hill; and 
  • There has been a reduction in Nitrogen Dioxide concentrations on all residential roads for which we have baseline data.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like to hear from as many people as possible to ensure our designs provide the most effective solution and consider the needs of all users.
