In 2013 the community petitioned the Mayor of London to include the Tulse Hill gyratory in his Junction Improvement Programme, following a number of accidents in the area.
With the support of many local residents, the local councillors and local Assembly Member Val Shawcross, the petition was successful and £5m was allocated to the scheme.
Lambeth Council applied for further funding to continue improvements to Norwood Road in conjunction with the gyratory project. They were successful in securing £2m.
During the summer in 2015, kick off meetings and workshops have been held to ask the community for their ideas and design the best way to progress the project.
The steering group hosted meetings and workshops, and attended local events like the Lambeth Country Show and the Feast.
A group of local residents chose a consultant to design - Landholt+Brown. The group got training on procurement from Lambeth Officers and assessed the tenders.
The Norwood Road improvements is the first phase of the project. This will be constructed by the end of 2017.
The Tulse Hill gyratory is the second phase of the project. This is a five year project and should be completed by the end of 2020.
