Dulwich Village will see part of a busy road pedestrianised this week, among other emergency transport measures to be put in place in the wake of Covid-19.
Southwark was awarded £1.3 million by Transport for London (TfL) from its Streetspace funding pot, which aims to rapidly transform London’s streets to help facilitate social distancing, cycling, and walking as lockdown eases.
Dulwich Village low traffic neighbourhood was granted £23,000 for the first phase and £110,000 for the second.
As part of its ‘our healthy streets’ initiative, the council had already earmarked the Village as an LTN.
Calton Avenue will be blocked off to traffic from Dulwich Village and Court Lane on June 25.
Changes coming into effect on Thursday are:
- The part closure of Calton Avenue to vehicles, except bicycles, between its junction with Dulwich Village and the north eastern wall of No.1 Calton Avenue
- Melbourne Grove will have a point closure set up to stop vehicles entering
- The existing loading bay along Calton Avenue will be relocated nearer the junction with Gilkes Crescent
- Double yellow lines to be added to Calton Avenue opposite the junction with Gilkes crescent, and in Court Lane opposite the junction with Dekker Road.
