messageBarry Road closure and buses
Posted by TheArtfulDogger September 01, 02:01PM

Thames water are renewing sewer pipes along Barry Road starting tomorrow (2nd September) A letter was sent out to some local residents a few days ago, but this has not been widely publicised.

Barry Road will be closed one way at the junction with Peckham Rye resulting in no through road to Peckham Rye.

This has had little publicity and the effect is that buses (12 and 197) will be on a one way diversion from Dulwich library, along Lordship Lane to the EDT roundabout , up East Dulwich Road and rejoin the route at the stop opposite where the lido was / is proposed . On the return journey they can still traverse the normal route down Barry road to the library.

Traffic diversions will also be in effect but no information has been given to what and where these are.

The road closure will move up towards the junction of Upland Road over a number of months and Thames Water expect the roadworks to take around 5 months

Little warning has been given to residents about the loss of buses one way down Barry Road (this will effect commuters going to Peckham Rye station and school children getting to school as its the start of term this week) and there is no information in which of the side roads diversions will be on thus adding main road traffic (including heavy lorries abd delivery vehicles) to some of them.

I hope the council and councillors are on this and make roads that are used for diversions temporarily one way to facilitate a reduction in potential grid lock, increased fumes and a higher risk of accidents !

No idea

You need to see the map of proposed works but the letter didn't include one

The closure of part of Barry Road has been detailed in the Southwark News for the last 3/4 week although not in last Thursdays. The impression I got was that only one side of the carriage way would be open, temp traffic lights? No indication re bus routes etc.

We saw the diversion signs going up yesterday for 12 and 197 - via lordship lane but no other indications.

Pretty badly organized..
Bus stops into town have no “closure” signs on them on Barry Road.
People waiting and then giving up

Anyone know whether a vehicle can turn right at bottom of Barry Road ,heading towards Honor Oak ?

Once the closure at the junction of the clock house is in place, I don't think so

Will have to see what diversion is put in place to manage that

Even when the road is open, due to the design of the junction, turning right at bottom on Barry Road is problematic. Traveling to Honor Oak I prefer Dunstans Road where the junction is controlled by lights.

I agree Tractorlad but certain members of the InTexas household refuse to listen to good sense .

So I'm left wondering about the success of a route to work this morning which involved a right turn at bottom of Barry Rd .

Back in July, I had a letter through the door about a drop-in session which was going to occur while i was on holiday to inform residents of the upcoming work.
It referred to Barry Road and Friern Road, with both being rather long roads i didn't really think much of it.
We received a further letter just last week vaguely outlining the details.
It is going to be 5 months of hell for anyone living near the bottom (north) end of Barry Road.
I called Thames Water for more details as i missed the drop in session, asking for what would have been displayed at the session, they were unable to provide it and the chap said "a little clue for the future, anytime there is a drop-in session it is going to be a big job" !!!
It is basically 5 months of various different lane closures on Peckham Rye and Barry Road between the Clockhouse and Upland Road (Barrys Store), working on a 230m section of sewer pipe.

The Northbound end of Barry Road is now closed to traffic.

Right ,well I limped down there with my bad leg and can confirm

Barry Road closed to North/Peckham bound traffic from Tyrell Rd to T junction with Peckham Rye .

No right turn from Barry Rd into Peckham Rye .

Buses still travelling south up Barry Road with the first bus stop outside estate acents not in use .

Works expected to continue until 25 Oct .

I guess that was all too complicated to put on Thames Water website last night .

Although website says 25 September .

long line of traffic from Goose Green Roundabout along ED Road - difficulty for traffic going up LL.

I guess I will have to drive hubby to his GP appointment at The Gardens using the back streets as normally he would bus down there as has problems with walking.

Queues back along Lordship Lane all the way to the Library this morning (and heavy traffic back to the South Circular). What joy!

To add to the problems...Bus stop opposite Denmark Hill station is closed, road is dug up. People need to either get off at top of champion hill or at Kings. Great..do they plan this on purpose to cause max disruption given schools starting today and many people return back to work?

Signposted diversion around Tyrell Road, Oakhurst Grove, The Gardens is really bad, narrow road, sharp corners, lorries getting stuck - avoid!!

It will be interesting to see if Champion Hill gets reopened.

Or will they ignore the traffic problems this causes.

This is ridiculous.
There is a sign at the library saying HGVs should not go down Barry Rd, and to divert via Lordship Lane.
But once they are going down Barry rd, the diversion is signed to go down Tyrrell, then Oakhurst, Kelmore and Gardens.

I got on a 12 going down Barry Rd towards the Rye. Halfway down, a 12 going the other way and the driver told ours that the road was closed. Our driver asked why she hadn’t been told then asked the passengers to help her do a three point turn!

I emailed councillors James McAsh, Charlie Smith and Victoria Olisa yesterday and none of them have replied so far. The traffic continues...

Hi all

Just a quick note to say that we councillors are aware of this situation and are doing what we can to deal with it. We agree that it is a serious issue.

Sunglasses - apologies for the lack of response. Being a councillor is not a full time role - I am also a teacher. This means that it will often take a couple of days to respond to emails, particularly at busy times like for instance the start of term!

Best wishes
James

Yesterday a sign saying road closed ahead was outside Lloyds Bank pointing down L. Lane.
By the lights on Barry Road (Plough Pub) another sign saying Road ahead closed.

A lot of confusion for motorists!!
