Works are now under way to repave Norwood Road. The community-led Streetworks project came up with the design plans to change and improve Norwood Road following a series of workshops with local people.
The project is funded by Transport for London (TfL) who have set aside £7m to upgrade Norwood Road in West Norwood and the one-way system (gyratory) at Tulse Hill over a period of 5 years.
To find out more about what is happening and the next steps for changing the Tulse Hill one-way system do come along to one of the workshop style public meetings on Tuesday 28th Feb 6.30-8.30pm at City Heights Academy 3 Abbots Park SW2 3PW or on Tuesday 7th March
After a series of workshops the community-led Streetworks project has drawn up detailed design plans to change and improve Norwood Road.
The plans include improving Station Rise in front of Tulse Hill station, widening the east pavement between Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way, options on parking, the Norwood Road entrance to Harpenden Rd becoming one way to allow for a new zebra crossing over Norwood Road, a diagonal crossing at York Hill/Lancaster Avenue and levelling the side roads with the pavement at their junction with Norwood Road.
But why not visit the exhibitions on Saturday 25th June 2.30-5pm at the West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre in Devane Way SE27 0DF or Wednesday 6th July 6.30-9pm at the Old Library 14 Knights Hill SE27 0HY ?
There is also a chance to comment on the designs at the West Norwood Feast market on July 3rd and the Country Show on 16th & 17th July.
The improvements will be funded by Transport for London and works should start in Autumn 2016. See our earlier posts: 9/2/16 19/1/16 and 3/6/15
Transport for London (TfL) have decided to drop the plans for a new route for 315 bus through West Norwood as there was little local support for the plans.
Last summer TfL consulted local people about extending the 315 bus to Peabody Hill & Trust Walk, a community of 250 homes, at the top of Birkbeck Hill SE21 . Of the 513 people who took part in the consultation only 22% supported the new route. 174 of those who replied used the 315 bus which links West Norwood with Balham.
TfL said “We will consider other ways of improving access to Peabody Hill. Any proposals will take account of the issues raised in this consultation and will be subject to further consultation.”
Transport for London (TfL) has set aside £7m to spend on modernising Norwood Road in West Norwood and the one-way system ( or gyratory) at Tulse Hill over a period of 5 years. See our earlier posts 19/1/16 and 3/6/15
There has been extensive consultation with the local community over the last few months.
The next set of community workshops are:
Tues 9th Feb 6.30pm-8.30pm workshop on ideas for changing the Tulse Hill south circular one-way system at Tulse Hill HUB, 357 Norwood Road SE27 9BQ
Thurs 11th Feb 6.30pm-8.30pm workshop on improving Norwood Road at All Nations Christian Centre 15 York Hill, SE27 0BU
Tues 23rd Feb 6.30pm-8.30pm workshop on improving Norwood Road at St Martin’s Community Centre, Abbots Park SW2 3PW
Tues 8th March 6.30pm to 8.30pm reviewing ideas on changing Tulse Hill one-way system to two way at Tulse Hill HUB, 357 Norwood Road SE27 9BQ
A proposal to extend the 315 bus route to Peabody estate ( near Tulse Hill station) means the 315 bus would no longer travel to Norwood High Street, Ernest Avenue and Knight’s Hill, including the stops for West Norwood Station and the present terminus at Cheviot Road.
The Mayor of London’s Transport for London (TfL) is now consulting on these proposed changes and there is a chance to see the plans and speak to TFL on Thursday 2nd July between 3pm and 8.30pm at Aspire Centre, 1 Park Hall Road SE21 8EH ( at end of Robson Road) and Thursday 16th July 3pm to 8.30pm at The Portico Gallery, 23c Knights Hill SE27 0HS.
All the public sector agencies have less money to spend and so are cutting down on the number of paid inspection staff.
Residents can help to get problems on our local streets fixed quickly by reporting problems to the responsible agency. The agencies usually locate each incident on a map before actioning so try to get the most precise address possible, preferably with post code!.
