Croxted and Rosendale Bridge Replacement – completed successfully

LATEST (2nd Feb 2014): The Rosendale and Croxted Road bridge replacement was successfully completed.  Some minor works continue under temporary traffic controls.

Residents in Turney and Burbage are now feeling the full impact of the traffic and bus diversions and it has been quite a shock, especially the night buses and increased heavy traffic.   Network Rail has apologised for disruption to the pedestrian access on Sunday 12th January under Croxted Road bridge.    Please the latest advice and telephone numbers below:

  1. As from Saturday 21:00 11th January sections of Croxted Rd  and Rosendale Rd on either side of the railway bridges have been CLOSED 24×7 at all times to ALL vehicular through traffic until 23.00 Sunday 26th January except for access to residents of Croxted & Rosendale.
  2. All vehicles have to follow diversions to avoid the bridge sections.  This will inevitably place strain on other roads and there will be congestion particularly at rush hour times.
  3. Pedestrians will still be able to walk through the affected sections of Croxted and Rosendale Roads except from 19.00 17th January to 08:00 20th January (bridge lifting weekend) when all access is closed.  A shuttle bus will be provided to enable pedestrians to cross to the other side of the bridge.
  4. Buses 3, N3 and 201 will be diverted until Monday 27th January.    Please see the TfL notice below and click on the link to the bus plan.  Bus 3 (including night buses) and 201 are travelling up and down Burbage Road as indicated.  The buses will not have any stops on the diverted routes.
  5. Parking controls have been introduced in large sections of Turney, Burbage, Gallery Roads and Dulwich Village to enable number 3, N3 and 201 buses to travel down these roads while on diversion during the bridge works.  These controls are 24×7 no waiting, parking or loading/unloading at any time – double yellow lines.   We understand that normal enforcement will apply on the affected sections.   Please contact the numbers below if you experience any difficulties e.g. with unloading building materials.
  6. Take extra care when cycling and reversing out from driveways.
  7. Working hours at the bridges are standard until Friday 17th January 19.00 when Network Rail will be working day and night round the clock to actually replace the bridges until Monday 20th 08:00   Expect some noise during this time.  If residents need to speak to someone face-to-face there will be Network Rail representation on site for the duration of the works.
