Please sign the Coulgate Street petition



The Brockley Cross Action Group (BXAG) is campaigning to have Coulgate Street part-pedestrianised. The issue's discussed on this thread, but already 93 people have signed the petition and Councillor Dean Walton has offered to present it formally to Council.

Although the images above are not connected to the proposal (they're a figment of a BC reader's lovely imagination) they do show how the street could be transformed with a simple part-pedestrianisation.

The BXAG is hoping to reach 200 signatories, so please show your support.

Thanks.

That taxi office has never looked more inviting.

I think it might be something to do with the signage...

I bet all the off-duty cabbies are in there sipping skinny lattes and doing OU coursework on gender studies and homosexual iconography in a post-internet age.

As the instigator of the Coulgate Street petition I am really encouraged. Please get your neighbours to sign as well if they support a safer, people friendly Coulgate Street.

I love the architect's (do we have an urban designer here by any chance?) 'doodle'. Not a street railing in sight! Does anyone fancy helping me to start fundraising? I have a 'Changing Spaces' application form which this scheme, together with the Brockley Common (which is at least £50,000 short to complete) hits all the right buttons.

As of Sunday it already has been transformed with the removal of 7 mature trees from the hill. Giving us a lovely view of the graffiti on the bridge and the concrete bunker that is the ticket office. This is so staggeringly unbelievable. I cannot think of a single good reason why the trees had to be removed indeed with the exception of the plants near the ticket machines they were the only thing that made that area attractive.

I mentioned that on suggest a topic. The whole station area looks barren now. The concrete bunker and graffiti all exposed. It has completely detracted from Coulgate St

The area could do with some cars to liven up the view a bit.

Not to mention damage to the wildlife.

HH, have you seen what the scheme is? it's actually quiet an extensive scheme but supposedly there will be new trees planted so the rats can move back in. http://www.brockley.com/bcag/plans.html

I'm not being funny, but surely the trees would have to be taken down under the grand "lets take down a ramp with grassy area so we can build a ramp and grassy area in its place" project that is the Brockley Common?

Monkeyboy said...

Hate to be pedantic but the current ramp is not much good if you use a wheel chair, a 1:20 slope seems to be the accepted standard - hence the new ramp? Besides the terracing looks rather good does it not? at least on the artists impression. That ticket office is rubbish though.

But the existing ramp was only built in the 90s or something wasn't it? You can see the plaque proudly displaying the date as you approach. It must have worked OK since then or they wouldn't have built it.

Can't help but think the time and money would be better used on an area that doesn't have a ramp in the first place (the London Bridge platform, for example) - even if that was at another station. Fixing it when it aint entirely broke...

Monkeyboy said...

Well I'm not a wheel chair user but if you asked one I think they may find that ramp a little difficult, looks like they built it wrong. I agree that that the station will not be 'step free', to use the industry jargon, but the scheme will contribute to it and I think TfL have committed to making it completely step free for the ELL re-opening?

Don't know actually, can our intrepid Councillor get a definitive answer out of TfL and/or NR?

Does anybody know whether they are actually building a ramp on the other platform (i.e. trains into town). This seems far more useful than redoing a ramp on this side of the tracks. Good for buggies, wheelchairs etc.

Also, seems that the speedicars cafe will remain an unfulfilled dream as they have just pulled that building down!

The Cat Man said...

There should be a dedicated west-side entrance to the platform to london bridge. I bet it doesn't happen.

Headhunter said...

I thought we'd already talked about this - no there won't be a new entrance from the west to platform 1, no ramp, no steps, no nuffink. You'll still have to cross the bridge. The Speedicars office will be flats as per the other thread...

monkeyboy said...

would be nice but you need somewhere to buy a ticket. Machines and barriers could be installed I s'pose.

By the way I hope the fact that the concrete shed masquerading as a ticket office will be replaced. Now it's exposed it's even more of an eyesore. Wonder whether the ELL funding has some put aside for that?

The Oracle said...

The Speedicars cafe will be no such thing. The land is in private ownership, and when the new block is built it will include Speedicars with flats above. So dream on.
