College Road / South Circular junction upgrade consultation

From: TfL Consultations []
Sent: 06 March 2018

I am writing to let you know that we are planning to upgrade crossing facilities at the above named junction and reconfigure the layout to enable coaches to make the left turn into College Road northbound to enable coaches serving local schools to be re-routed away from Calton Avenue which forms part of the recently installed Quietway 7 (QW7). This will require relocating a traffic island at the centre of the junction, the position of which currently prevents coaches from turning left.

Additionally, we intend to widen the existing formal pedestrian crossing on the west side of the junction in order to accommodate the increase in pedestrian footfall arising from coaches dropping off in College Road.

The project is expected to be completed during this summer holiday, starting the work in August 2018. If not possible for any reason, the work will be carried out in the next available school holiday period. We are working closely with London Borough of Southwark to deliver the scheme.

Key scheme benefits:

  • Allowing coaches to turn left from Dulwich Common eastbound into College Road northbound will facilitate new school coach routing in order to improve the cycling environment along QW7 (Calton Avenue)
  • The pedestrian crossing across the western arm will be upgraded in order to accommodate increased pedestrian flows arising from potential new student pick-up / drop-off locations – this will ensure safe and accessible crossing conditions for all, including local schoolchildren.

We are intending to replace a small section of grass on the northeast corner of the junction with paved footway in order to provide the best access to the relocated northern crossing; this is subject to discussion with the landowners (Dulwich Estate)

If you wish to make any comments on the scheme, please do so by Friday 23 March 2018 by emailing to us at


Yours sincerely,
