Consultation: A205 London Road and Honor Oak Road

TfL are consulting on plans to change the junction layout between London Road and Honor Oak Road (beside the Esso petrol station).  The proposal aims to benefit pedestrians through providing wider footways as well as slow vehicles down turning into Honor Oak Road. It also aims to improve access arrangements into and out of the petrol station immediately next to the junction.

Full details and survey can be found at https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/streets/a205-london-road-and-honor-oak-road

The proposals are outlined in the summary below:
  • Provision of a right turn pocket for vehicles turning into the petrol station.This will reduce the instances of waiting vehicles blocking the traffic flow westbound on A205 London Road.
  • Building out of footways either side of Honor Oak Road. This will provide a wider footway for pedestrians as well as slowing down vehicles entering and exiting Honor Oak Road.
  • Eastbound stop line on A205 London Road moved forward 4 metres. This together with advanced warning of the traffic signal ahead sign will give more visibility and warning to vehicles exiting the petrol station of the junction ahead.
  • Widening of pedestrian refuges on both A205 London Road and Honor Oak Road. This will provide more space for pedestrians to wait whilst crossing the junction.
  • New stop line for traffic exiting Park Hill to accompany the existing traffic signals.
  • Provision of red anti-skid road surface to assist vehicles turning right from A205 London Road into Honor Oak Road.
  • Upgraded signal equipment at the junction to increase visibility of the traffic signals to road users.

Given no unforeseen delays, it is estimated that the work would commence during Autumn 2014.
Consultation closes on Friday 28 February 2014.


  1. Excellent news. It is a rather scary crossing for pedestrians at the moment. Proposals look sensible to me.

  2. I was told by TFL that they could not put a Green man light at this junction which i think should be added to the proposals so that there is at least a shrt time that is clear of all turning cars i can forward this information to whover is the relelvant person
