Story

Southwark Council's plans for a 'Quietway' for less confident cyclists through Dulwich Village include a new design for the junction.

But this new design:

* doesn't put pedestrian safety first
* doesn't help less confident cyclists
* will increase traffic queues and rat-running
* sets pedestrians, cyclists and motorists against each other by making them race for the lights
* should be trialled before any expensive construction takes place

This junction has two schools with primary-aged children. Hundreds of children walk and cycle through it every day.

Two-thirds of locals have already objected to Southwark's design in a public consultation.

We want a better design. We want Southwark Council and TfL to look at an alternative - a design based on a low-speed environment and continuous traffic flow that suits the middle of Dulwich Village with its schools and shops.

We need to raise £4,000 for the first part of a feasibility study by traffic experts to persuade Southwark Council and TfL to look at an alternative design. If 400 people gave £10 each, we would reach our target within days.

If we do nothing, Southwark and TfL will stick with the design that the local community has rejected, and start building it next summer.

    Total cash donations now amount to £586.25 from 31 supporters. This means that the total raised as of today, 30 November, is £2906.25 from 112 supporters. If we can raise just £100 more, we will have hit 75% of the total amount we need in just two weeks. Thank you to everyone. Members of the Dulwich Village Forum are going to the council assembly meeting tonight to explain that money is being raised from the local community to pay for a feasibility study into a low-speed environment that puts pedestrians and cyclists first. Wish them luck.
