messageTraffic lights Lordship Lane (old harvester/ tile place junction )
Posted by mary123 October 08, 12:29PM

The traffic lights when turning right at the old harvester/ tile place junction leading onto College Road has a really short timer on it, not even 5 seconds, creating a queue as cars cannot move quickly.

Anyone else experienced this.

Who would be the best person to speak to get the timer reset to 10-20 seconds..

I guess it's possible the phasing might be out and in need of reviewing but I think traffic light phasing is a pretty complex business and that a request to increase/decrease from a layperson will fall on deaf ears .

I'm not positive but think London Transport would be the appropriate body to approach .

The phasing is different at different times of day/weights of traffic. I agree that it can cause a back up of cars towards Lordship Lane when the right turn phase is short, but the aim appears to be to keep the weight of traffic around the South Circular flowing freely.

When the right hand turn phase into College Road is short, the equivalent right hand turn out of College Road on to the South Circular towards Forest Hill is much longer, so it appears to be a bit of give and take.

To avoid confusion, its correct name is Dulwich Common, not College Road.

Thank you..I have had a response already from Tfl and they advise they will send someone down to inspect the site.

Remember there was a consultation last year to remodel the junction by including traffic island crossings making it safer to cross, especially on Dulwich Common which is dangerous currently with people trying to reach Cox's Walk. No idea when the works will commence.

I reported it as dangerous on the TFL website when I noticed this problem before [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk] (back in 2015, wow time flies). They did sort it out pretty quickly. Depressing that there is STILL no provision for pedestrians at that junction.
