New pedestrian island on Burbage Road at the Dulwich Village roundabout

LATEST: (5 July 2014): The pedestrian roundabout was approved at the DCC on 19th March 2014 and will be implemented over the summer, current dates 4-12 August 2014.

LATEST (2nd Feb 2014):  This will be submitted to the Dulwich Community Council on 19th March 2014 for a decision.

UPDATE: the consultation has ended.  We await details of the construction plan.

Around a year ago the Dulwich Society made a successful bid for Southwark Cleaner Greener Safer funds to create an island to assist pedestrian crossing of Burbage Road at the Dulwich Village roundabout – see our previous post on improving safety here.   The council have agreed to place the island at the end of the road where it can be easily seen by lorries and HGVs and have circulated a letter to local residents and stakeholders inviting comments by 20 December 2013.   Whilst car traffic can still turn left into Burbage Road from Gallery Road, larger vehicles will have to traverse around the roundabout to access Burbage Road.

Full details and a site plan are at Burbage & Dulwich Village Roundabout Consultation

If the consultation is successful, and the proposal approved by the Dulwich Community Council in January then construction will start in March / April 2014.  In order to ensure the scheme is safety constructed on site, Burbage Road will be closed for 7 days (at the junction with the roundabout). Appropriate traffic management will be put in place to ensure pedestrians can still cross Burbage Road at this location.

Residents are invited to send any comments to the project manager, Chris Mascord chris.mascord@southwark.gov.uk by 20th December.
