Railton Road area - updates
The project board that have been implementing the Railton Road area changes outside the station have decided not to install any electrical power sockets in the Railton Road area despite having installed the underground trunking for the cables.
These sockets would be used by markets, events and others to provide much needed power. It is a major setback to the plans for creating a vibrant space at the centre of Herne Hill.
Venn Street market in Clapham is thriving with their newly created fully pedestrainised level street area. There are power points going in to allow for stalls and other uses. There is little or no street furniture so it is easy for local shops and restuarants to spread out and increase footfall and trade.
