How about making the Triangle Pedestrianised? It's such a shame to walk around it, and be constantly bombarded with the noise of the traffic. I know this would make driving a bit more difficult, but there are alternative routes on all sides of it.

I wondered this too, to the extent that I printed out an A1 large scale map of the locale at work so I could try to figure out how you could do it (I briefly worked in traffic planning back in the 90s). Sadly, the various side roads around the Triangle, some of them already acting as rat runs every morning and evening, just aren't enough for the through traffic, especially buses, that come through the area.

But it would be nice...
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

I reckon it could be done, but the main roads to the parade (let's face it, all buses going through the triangle are going to the parade) would all have to be diverted along main roads. So to avoid Westow Hill they'd have to go down to Gipsy Road and College Road, and to avoid Church Road they'd have to use the Penge/Croydon Road and up the hill through Anerley. The only bus I remember using Beulah Hill and Church Road would be the 49 (now) and could use Harold Road maybe?
As for the cars, screw 'em... :P

Stuff that it would make the side roads in CP more dangerous for sure. Large vehicles would also damage properties.

If you dont want to see cars on a high st go live in cave !

What about putting road control methods in the smaller roads, like the width posts at the bottom of Fox Hill/Belvedere Road, or road narrowing involving priority control over traffic (you know, the sort of thing that requires cars give way in certain directions). Thay way large traffic and buses would have to go along the above mentioned routes. If cars wanted to avoid the measures, they would have to take the main roads too.

As for living in caves (re: no wireless, lecky, water etc etc), I could name a few roads in SE19/SE25 that come close...

Speed cameras on Church Rd - police sniffer dogs on Sylvan Hill - tax coaches holding up traffic outside Queens Hotel - fine street drinkers in Westow Park - ban gastro pubs - return to Victorian values and bring back the birch and public gallows !!

We own a basement flat on Waldegrave road, and while it looks like it'll be dark and dingy from the front, they actually have plenty of light round the back...
