Quietway in Dulwich

Closed 17 Sep 2015

Opened 29 Aug 2015

Overview

We’re improving the street environment along Calton Avenue, Dulwich Village Junction and Turney Road to make it better for all road users as part of the Quietways scheme, funded by Transport for London, and we need all residents to participate in developing the designs for the neighbourhood.

What is a Quietway?

Quietways are a network of direct and easy to follow cycle routes across London, following calmer roads, parks and waterways. Through making it easier for people to get around by bike we hope to reduce congestion on roads and make it easier for people in cars and on foot to travel too.

What are we consulting on?

We need your help to look at the route through Dulwich Village, to make it calmer and more attractive to travel through. Specifically we’re looking at how we could improve Calton Avenue, Dulwich Village Junction and Turney Road. We want to understand what local people want for the streets around the route, as the aim of this work is quieter streets for everyone to enjoy.

Who is working on Quietways routes?

Southwark Council is working with sustainable transport charity Sustrans to deliver this part of the Quietway.

Boroughs can engage Sustrans to help with specific work, for example engineering or community engagement on street design, where they work with residents to harness their knowledge to co-design changes that work best for all users.

Next steps

Sustrans work with Southwark in Dulwich on Quietway 7 has now come to an end.

A report detailing the findings from the engagement carried out by Sustrans can be found below in the related documents section.

What Happens Next

As an outcome of the community consultation, a study in to the movement of coaches was requested at the Dulwich Community Council. Alan Baxter Ltd (ABA) was commissioned by the Dulwich Foundation Schools and the London Borough of Southwark (LBS) to undertake a study of the Foundation Schools’ private Coach Service offered for pupils. The purpose of this study is to firstly provide an objective review of  the current Coach Service operation understanding the issues and constraints, and secondly present a set of measures that could reduce the impact of the Coach Services on the local area and improve movements in the immediate vicinity of the schools. The report concludes by presenting a high level appraisal of the measures.
