Transport for London have backed down with their plans to remove vital pedestrian safety railings along the south circular following the petition of local residents by Cllr Lewis Robinson presented to City Hall last week.
TfL had posted notices to remove pedestrian safety railings outside the entrance to Belair Park, West Dulwich train station, and the traffic junctions outside Dulwich College last month.
Caroline Pidgeon, Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee added her support to the campaign and asked Boris Johnson, London Mayor to confirm that the railings outside Belair Park will be kept to protect local school children. In his written answer, the Mayor has confirmed that the railings by the entrance to Belair Park will now not be removed. Any other proposals in the local area will be subject to full consultation with local stakeholders.
