L4 - Old Kent Road

Postby Challenger3802 » Mon Jun 16, 2014 10:30 am

Hi,

Alteration of a turn on the Old Kent Road is required, from Mina Rd. A user has reported a left turn only for this junction. The WME has a time based restriction for turning into Dunton Rd (I can't view it though).

The latest maps from google seem to suggest it is not possible to turn right from the Old Kent Road into Dunton St.

Regards,
Ian

Yes quite agree, I'll add a comment to the UR so I know not to close it prematurely

The reason I put in the timed restriction, about 2-3 weeks ago, was because of a user who reported that they couldn't get across all the traffic to get to the lane for turning into Dunton Rd. Outside peak times, it would be fine. There's been nothing that I found published in the London Gazette to ban that turn, but the change on Google Maps does imply something has happened to that junction.

I'd like to suggest we leave this alone for a while to give the chance for a site visit in a week or two, if any of us get a chance to go that way, or for further URs to be raised giving the same message.

I've been doing a bit of further online research. Nothing on the Southwark website about any changes there, and the map they publish of the area still shows what looks like a right turn lane. Then I decided to check the TfL cameras that are at the junction with Humphrey St, (they show up on the map when you scroll down the list under map legend and enable them) and the one looking north-west up the Old Kent Rd clearly shows a right-turn lane in operation for turning into Dunton St.

QED, as my maths teacher used to say. The reporter was wrong.

Eating humble pie, I have to report that there is a Turn Left sign on Mina Rd at the junction with Old Kent Rd, making it illegal to cross the road to get to the lane for turning into Dunton Rd. However, it is definitely OK to turn from Old Kent Rd into Dunton Rd. Solved a few other queries on a bus journey from Aldwych to New Cross Gate! Will update WME when I get home.
