Following a large number of objections from local residents, and a heated public meeting last Saturday, the Council has backed down and confirmed that the current right turn from Townley Road into East Dulwich Grove will remain. The South London Press quoted Councillor Mark Williams, the cabinet member for regeneration, planning and transport, as saying: “My thanks to everyone who contributed to the recent consultation which received a significant number of responses. In light of the considerable local concerns raised by residents the right turn from Townley Road into East Dulwich Grove will remain, and I have instructed council officers to work up alternative proposals to make the junction safer. Further details on the new scheme will be presented to the Dulwich Community Council meeting in March, with a formal decision to be taken soon afterwards. We are committed to further public consultation and engagement on any new options.”
