Re: Another person on the line at Penge East

According to this link it was a 64 year old lady from Sydenham: https://www.kentlive.news/news/kent-news/victim-hit-train-near-penge-2772900 Coincidentally or not the advert running on the page for me was from the Samaritans.

Re: Knighton Park Road

Where have I suggested any attempt to prohibit anything? The effect is better obtained by making access less easy for visitors. When confronted by a barrier they are more likely to remain outside the barrier... and there are parking bays right outside Hexagon that its clients can use. Prohibition h...

Re: Another person on the line at Penge East

Measured by train diversion reasons given at Victoria. But in the end this is not a numbers game. Every single loss counts overwhelmingly to the survivors.

Another person on the line at Penge East

My grand kids outing today was cancelled ause there were no trains at Sydenham Hill. Apparently because of a fatality at Penge East: https://www.newsshopper.co.uk/news/17579994.person-dies-after-being-hit-by-train-in-penge-east-station/ RIP and condolences to family and friends.

Was that "restrict access to the road"? How do you plan
to prohibit me from parking there whether I'm visiting Hexagon or a friend without further inconveniencing other residents.

Oh JGD - the only reason we have Internet Exploter is because legacy sites who didn't use cross-browser standards are stuck. Microsoft's own advice is to use Edge except when you can't. Windows 7 users don't have that option but then its a dying platform with an EOL of next January. Until then they ...

Re: Sydenham Community Radio

Last time I tried to listen to it online from limks on the site - it connected to a completely different station. It would be good if could rekindle the initial enthusiasm. Is anybody listening?

Re: Live Sydenham Train Departures

If it's of no use to you then no worries. If it helps only one then it's a bonus. I live in Lawrie Park and regulary use Sydenham & Sydenham Hill (or pick up at Penge East/West). I occasionally use Lower Sydenham/New Beckenham - so its great for me. Even if you use only one station it can be easier,...

Re: Knighton Park Road

All this is very exciting and interesting. But getting back to the original question to John. What other practical solution do you have other than a CPZ?

Free for all or pay for priority. Which do you and your neighbours want?

Live Sydenham Train Departures

You may have used the National Rail website to check departures. I've use the same source to bring Sydenham's three stations together plus linking them to local bus routes. As ever the project is to create shareable local data for local people so if you weant to embed them (unbranded) into your own ...

Re: Knighton Park Road

But John, I have paid too. So why should you have priority over me?

Pay something extra back to the community and you may have a case. Otherwise are you not exploiting me by semi-permanently taking o piece of public space for your exclusive use?

Re: Knighton Park Road

Like Bromley where they have to fork out (again) for a permit. No thanks. The road is paid for... and has not been repaired in over 50 years. Indeed. Paid by everyone for the use of everyone. Is it not unreasonable to ask those who wish to have exclusive use of a sought after 100 sq ft plot to cont...
