A new road surface for the high street
As part of the design of Norwood Road we want to be able to re-surface the highway. However, plans to do this have been slightly put on hold because we are aware that Thames Water want to dig up the road to replace old pipes, and we don't want this disruptive work to have to happen twice. Thames Water want to do this work at the start of 2019. These will be major works, involving closing the high-street. However, we understand that they will be doing this at night-time to min
Place making: why painting the bridge sadly isn’t an option
As part of the Streetworks scheme we heard from residents that they wanted to feel like they had arrived in West Norwood or Tulse Hill and that this wasn’t simply just a place to travel through. One way this has been done in other locations such as Loughbrough Junction and Brixton is to paint the bridges (as shown in the picture). We have been investigating the options for doing this on the bridge that crosses Norwood Road, near Tulse Hill station for some time. However, sadl
Loading bay – signs stolen again!
The new loading bay installed on Norwood Road is designed for just that, loading. The double yellow lines and painted word ‘Loading’ on the road indicate this. There should also be a sign on the lamp post by the bay. However, several have been put up, and then keep disappearing! We will continue to put signs up so motorists are aware of the stopping restrictions here.
Improving Waylett Place
One of the areas where more parking has been created for motorists is Waylett Place, just off the high street – this is the space behind Greggs and Delicious Café. We are working with Lambeth Council to make improvements to the area. For example, the line markings within the car park have been readjusted to gain a further two spaces. Further signage is going in to ensure motorists are aware of the 40p for one hour parking charge, that the car park is open 24/7, is free on a S
Myth busting: the new pavements and the width of Norwood road
As the works have continued along the Norwood Road pavement people have been asking why the road width has been narrowed. This is because as the pavements have been extended it has looked as if the road width has also decreased. Myth busting: the width of the carriageway actually remains the same, meaning it is the same width now as it was before. This is 9.1 meters by the traffic lights and 8.2 meters outside of Superdrug’s where the parking bay has been removed. We were abl
