Brockley Cross measured up

"You have been weighed, you have been measured and you have been found wanting."
- Adhemar, A Knight's Tale

In what world could Brockley Cross possibly be considered a good road layout? The confusing, dangerous and ugly system that encourages flytipping and double parking and frustrates the efforts of Lewisham Council's planners to attract suitable developers to some of Brockley's key sites is finally set to be replaced.

As we reported in September, the Council applied for TfL funding to remodel Brockley Cross, to improve safety and the quality of the public realm.

Today, the surveyors are out in force, taking measurements that will enable them to develop a detailed proposal for Brockley Cross' enhancement. It's very encouraging to see work underway and we hope to bring you more news soon.
