The one-way system in Tulse Hill is changing to become a two-way system. This is phase two of the StreetWorks scheme. The project has seen the design work for this, with residents suggesting that the road between the station and Tulse Hill Hotel be closed to cars, but remain open to buses and bikes.

TFL are funding and managing this part of the project, and want to update the local community on what is happening. This will happen on Tuesday 05 December from 6:30pm registration for a 7:00pm start, and held at the Salvation Army, 246 Norwood Road. 

If interested do pop along.

Have you spotted the new poem adorning West Norwood yet?

Thanks to the amazing people behind PoetrySlabs, London’s first catalytic poem is up at the Bzz Garage. “A Rare Bee” by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy has been put up on the bus garage wall (corner of Ernest Avenue/Knight’s Hill SE27).

Coated in magical nano-titania spray, the poetic banner silently converts noxious exhaust fumes into water that gently waters the bee friendly garden below. An innovative solution to London’s air quality crisis!

Streetworks cycling consultation recently came to an end. 

Cyclist’s had contact the Streetworks team to talk about ways in which the road by Ira Court could be made safer as it was proving difficult for them to cycle along this stretch of road due to the new position of the car parking bays. The bays were pushing cyclists further out into the traffic.

As a community project Streetworks investigated this concern and one of the ideas that came forward from the consultation was to create car parking bays in between the trees – ensuring that walkers still have lots of space on the pavement, and cyclists aren’t being pushed out into traffic. 

The idea has now been modelled and though car parking spaces will have to be reduced form 8 to 6 it is felt this is a positive compromise in order to ensure that cyclists remain safe on the roads.
