LB Lewisham distributed an area wide letter drop in late January
2020, with details of the proposed trial scheme for the Lewisham
and Lee Green Healthy Neighbourhood cell. This was followed by a
community drop in session, attended by over 600 people, and a local
assembly meeting in February 2020. Officers have been monitoring
feedback received during these sessions and also emails received
relating to the same matter. Officers have received many comments
regarding the area adjacent to the Chiltonian Estate south of the
railway and the potential impacts on vehicle movements on and off
the south circular. As a result, officers are considering making a
minor amendment to the trial scheme which repositions the two modal
filters on Dallinger Road and Holme Lacey Road to the western end
of both roads, subject to any comments from TfL. This would allow
access to the south circular via Burnt Ash Hill rather than Manor
As outlined in our letter to residents, LB Lewisham is working closely with Transport for London to understand the impact on key junctions in the area and any potential mitigation measures that may be required, particularly for buses. The issue of the exit from Manor Lane onto the south circular has been raised and noted, and in the interim TfL have installed a ‘Keep Clear’ marking at this junction to enhance turning movements. Further measures may be introduced if considered necessary as a result of discussions with TfL. Once a trial has been agreed, TfL and council officers will be monitoring the situation closely, including undertaking traffic counts and air quality monitoring. The results from the monitoring will be made publically available.
