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.

You can contact TfL via their website here:

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.

January, I thought?

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.

TFL.. have responded and they have been out to increase the time for the right turn.. very impressed with their quick response

It's horrendous to cross round there, I can't believe there's no sort of pedestrian crossing in place, considering how many children and dogs use enter the woods via Cox's Walk.

There has been a consultation and pedestrian crossings will be installed, I think in January.

There's a thread about it on here somewhere.

They consulted on building a crossing there a few months ago, but not sure if they're actually going to build it or if they're waiting to get some financial contribution from the redevelopment of the old Harvester site.

Fair enough. I got the following email on 2 May:

TfL Consultations

Thu, 2 May, 11:57

to TfL

Dear Sir or Madam



Between 13 September and 25 October 2018, we consulted on proposals to introduce formal pedestrian signalised crossing arrangements at the junction of Dulwich Common and Lordship Lane.



We have now published our Consultation Report, which summarises how we sought comments and feedback on our proposals. We have also published our responses to the most common issues raised during the consultation.



In total, we received 274 responses to the consultation of which:



91 per cent supported or strongly supported the overall proposal to make changes to the pedestrian crossings and cycling facilities; and

3 per cent opposed or strongly opposed our proposal



We tentatively anticipate commencing the project early in 2020.



We are currently revisiting the design of the scheme to investigate the possibility of introducing a crossing at the southern arm of the junction.



We will inform local residents and stakeholders of any design changes before any construction takes place.



You can find our consultation report and responses to issues raised here: [consultations.tfl.gov.uk].



Yours faithfully

Has anyone noticed the difference in the time allocated for the right turn , if my counting is correct not sure it is...
From 5 seconds to 6 seconds timer?
