Dulwich Wood Park Speed Reduction
Rushed consultion to on A2199 (SRN) Dulwich Wood Park serving two bus routes and LCN23 (connects with Quietway 7).
Main Issue: the Dual Carriage is not being removed. The downhill "Speed reduction" measure is to reduce downhill part of the Dual Carriage to 3.2m working for a long section. Cyclists are expected to take the primary position on this steep downhill (10% hill at top) mixed with heavy traffic, and somehow slow all traffic behind them to then navigate the ~120 degree left turn into Farquhar Road. The road has severe AM peak time traffic. Cyclists are expected to weave around traffic in this long 3.2m downhill section.
Consultation is sham and is considered unfair . The feedback form does not allow uses to clearly "support" or "object" to all, or each of the planned interventions. So is more like a statuary consultation than a fair assessment of options.
There is major resurfacing due in a few months at his location, and the changes and detailed designs are being rushed to meet this deadline.
