Letters were delivered to residents and businesses in the consultation area to outline the council’s proposal to implement measures to improve bus punctuality and reliability, along with pedestrian safety improvements on Anerley Hill/Anerley Road, between Crystal Palace Parade and Seymour Villas.

The proposed scheme will include the following key elements:

  • Several lengths of bus lane to give priority to buses (within the current road space).
  • A new zebra crossing immediately to the north of the Thicket Road and Versailles Road junction.
  • Continuous pavement crossings at side road junctions (also known as Copenhagen crossings).
  • The re-designs of the Terrace Straight and Anerley Park junctions to make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross.
  • A new pedestrian crossing point immediately to the north of the Terrace Straight junction.
  • Additional car parking near the junction of Hamlet Road to help support local businesses.

We held a public exhibition at Anerley Town Hall on Tuesday 23 January 2024 between 14:30 and 19:30 where residents could walk in and speak to officers about the proposal, along with an online consultation which was open from 11 January until 1 February 2024.
