Transport Committee

The Transport committee of the Forest Hill society meets every 4 to 6 weeks to discuss the many ways that different transport issues affect Forest Hill residents. We discuss local issues raised by members and represent the area in meetings with Lewisham Council, TfL and other transport companies and interested parties.


Some recent successful campaigns include:


  • Lobbying Southern and TfL to increase the number and reliability of trains stopping at Forest Hill Station, resulting in the imminent return of 2 more trains running from Norwood Junction to London Bridge.

  • Representing Forest Hill and Lewisham residents in a campaign against the expansion of London City airport's flight paths and hours of operation.

  • Monitoring traffic along Devonshire Road and connected residential roads, working on solutions to improve residents' safety and quality of life.

  • Improving the look and safety of Forest Hill Station entrance and car park to make the experience of travelling to and from the area more pleasant for residents and visitors.

  • Participating in the drafting of Lewisham Council's updated Active Travel strategy and Streetscape design policy.


We will soon be producing a report with suggestions for improving crossings and safety along the South Circular in Forest Hill, and also working to improve connections between Forest Hill, Honor Oak and Bell Green.


If you have any matters you wish to raise with the committee that relate to streets, trains, buses, cycling, walking or our streetscape, do feel free to get in touch and we will do our best to advise and to raise the matter with the relevant authorities.
