New CPZ – goes live!

The newly implemented CPZ’s will be going live on Monday 2 October 2017.

For details on the proposals please visit, www.lambeth.gov.uk/bhcpz

The majority of the onsite lining and signing works are complete, bar a few issues that are currently being tidied up. Due to the large nature of the CPZ there may be some other issues that come to light in the early phase of the implementation so please keep us posted and we’ll pass on all relevant information so any teething concerns can be resolved accordingly.

Lambeth are also introducing a new permitting system, which will be issuing virtual permits. If you have questions about these please go to; https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/parking-transport-and-streets/parking/electronic-parking-permits-guide

The StreetWorks project has been busy of late working with cyclists regarding wider pavements near Ira Court, and the developing one way system by Tulse Hill. 

Furthermore, the StreetWorks project has been nominated for The Association for Project Management awards in the category of Social Project of the Year. This is for our work on project management training with young people in West Norwood and Tulse Hill.

In other news StreetWorks are going to be designing some posters and leaflets to give to businesses along Norwood Road – but would like it if someone locally could help. Do you have a flair for graphic design, and want to help explain the project to others in the area? Drop them an email at hello@streetworks.london.

Proposed Controlled Parking Zone – extension H /Tulse Hill

Norwood Road closed to traffic as police recover machine gun from car

Norwood Road was closed to traffic in both directions on Tuesday evening as police pulled over a car suspected to be carrying firearms. A 23 year old man and a 30 year old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession of firearms. The man was tasered when he reportedly refused to comply with officers, and was taken to hospital as a precaution before being taken into custody.

A search of the car revealed what police believe to be a Mac10 machine pistol and ammunition. These have been sent for forensic testing.

Detective Superintendent Mark Maberly of the Trident and Area Crime Command said: “Trident is committed in its efforts to proactively target those supplying and possessing firearms. We continue to work with the local community to tackle gun enabled crime and the associated criminality that comes with it. These types of operations can be challenging but are conducted by highly trained officers to bring about a safe resolution and ultimately make London streets safer.”

If you have any information about gun or gang crime you can contact Trident via 101. To give information anonymously please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Bridge strike in Tulse Hill…

… but a different bridge to normal.

The bridge over Thurlow Park Road is the UK’s most frequently hit bridge, but today, it was the railway bridge over Norwood Road that caused the problems.

Norwood Road is currently closed to traffic as emergency services deal with this:

And earlier, the bridge was hit by a vehicle transporting vans, causing delays to traffic and trains.
