Improvements proposed to cycling arrangements at entrance to Eltham Park South

Council Officers have written to me to highlight plans for some changes to the area around the entrance to Eltham Park South at the junction of Glenesk Road and Glenlea Road.

The works include:

–       Replace pedestrian refuge island with wider 2m one & upgrade lighting adjacent to crossing

–       Hatched road markings around the junction to narrow lane widths to reduce speed

–       Existing park gate to be replaced with a gate with a cycle gap to permit cycle access when the car park is closed

–       Existing raised table to be resurfaced

 The plans for the works are as follows:

These works are intended to upgrade facilities around the entrance to the park to improve safety and accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians.

I understand that these works will be paid for by TfL’s Quietways programme, but I am not entirely sure if this is part of a bigger cycling plan for the area.

If you have any comments on the works please let me know by close of business Thursday 25th January so I can communicate any concerns to the Council.
