The Herne Hill project is being led by the London Borough of Lambeth, rather than TfL, and the borough should be the first point of contact. Queries should be directed to the Transport & Highways Deparment, tel 020 7926 9000. LB Lambeth have advised TfL that a meeting is being arranged between the borough, their consultants (Atkins) and the Herne Hill Forum on 17 December 2003. This meeting will discuss how the local community will be engaged in the consultation process for the outline proposals, which is likely to commence in 2004 now that funding has been approved. However, TfL are unable to advise on a timetable for a firm programme of physical changes to the junction as Public Consultation and LB Lambeth Member approvals are required. .
