LATEST: The much debated Quietway route through Dulwich was further discussed at the Dulwich Community Council on 22 June. After representations from local residents, groups and local MP Helen Hayes, Dulwich councillors recommended a pause in the process while key issues were properly considered. They asked for no further action on the current proposals until the results are available for a study into alternative routes for the school coaches, which all currently use part of the proposed Quietway route. Local councillors suggested a trial of the change of priority at the junction in Dulwich Village and the reduction of three lanes to two on Court Lane/Calton Avenue. The final decision on plans for the Quietway rests with the new Southwark cabinet member for Public Realm, Councillor Ian Wingfield, who assured the Dulwich Community Council that he knew the area well and was in listening mode.
The plans for new double yellow lines will proceed subject to a statutory 21 day consultation when residents can make objections to the plans. Notices will be posted at junctions affected and on the Southwark web site. If you have already made an objection to the double yellow lines at junctions on Turney Road, you should write again to the officer listed on the statutory notice – THIS IS IMPORTANT to ensure your objections count. No work will start on the yellow lines until the statutory consultation reports back to the DCC when a decision will be made on individual junctions. The Turney junctions affected are Roseway (both ends), Aysgarth and Pickwick.

The TfL Bakerloo Line Extension Report has been published. The report indicates that a route to Lewisham, via the Old Kent Road & New Cross Gate, currently has the strongest case, with the potential to support approximately 25,000 homes. The assessment also found that, by terminating at Lewisham, an extension could be delivered by 2030. TfL will therefore no longer investigate the other option via Camberwell and Peckham Rye. There will be a further public consultation before a final decision is made.
