Lumley Road junction safety improvements

We have developed a proposal to ban the right turn from Lumley Road onto the A217 St Dunstan’s Hill, on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN), and we would like to know what you think about it. This is in response to a high number of collisions having been recorded at this location involving vehicles turning right from Lumley Road, and northbound traffic on St Dunstan's Hill. Local residents and stakeholders have also raised concerns about this junction. We are now holding a public consultation on our proposals, running from 7 June to 18 July 2021, and you can

We have developed a proposal to ban the right turn from Lumley Road onto the A217 St Dunstan’s Hill, on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN), and we would like to know what you think about it. This is in response to a high number of collisions having been recorded at this location involving vehicles turning right from Lumley Road, and northbound traffic on St Dunstan's Hill. Local residents and stakeholders have also raised concerns about this junction. We are now holding a public consultation on our proposals, running from 7 June to 18 July 2021, and you can find details of how to take part below.

We propose making the exit from Lumley Road onto St Dunstan's Hill left turn only. To enforce this, we propose installing a pedestrian island in the carriageway at the end of Lumley Road, which would help prevent vehicles from turning right. This island would include dropped kerbs and tactile paving. As well as prohibiting the right turn, this would also provide a safer and easier crossing point for pedestrians and cyclists crossing Lumley Road.

There is more information about the proposal in the ‘Documents’ section. This includes a map showing the proposals at the junction and our Equality Impact Assessment for the scheme.

Purpose of the Scheme

We are proposing these changes to reduce the number of collisions at this junction, particularly those involving more vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists. Our data shows that over the past five years there have been 18 collisions in total and nine of these involved motorcyclists, four of which were recorded as ‘serious’. This is a high rate of collisions compared to Londonwide statistics. The scheme would aim to reduce collision numbers by eliminating conflict between vehicles turning right from Lumley Road and northbound traffic on St Dunstan's Hill.
