TfL jam cam captures ambulance and road closure on Brixton Hill

Brixton Hill has been closed southbound at the junction with Josephine Avenue following a collision.

At 10.25am this morning the northbound direction was reduced to one lane.

Routes 45, 59, 109, 118, 133, 159, 250 and 333 are currently on diversion.


  1. I would love it if Brixton Blog made a Freedom of Information request asking how many times over the past 3 years this part of Brixton Hill has had to close (with police having to attend) due to vehicle collision. The area around Brixton Hill-Brixton Water Lane-Lambert Road is a very dangerous area – I see near-misses all the time and the road is closed quite frequently. Something needs to be improved before there is a fatality. I’d like to see a filter light for vehicles travelling north along Brixton Hill and wanting to turn right into Brixton Water Lane.

    • I’d like to see more active patrolling of speeding cars not only on this road but also the adjacent main road; Tulse Hill. Vehicles speed well in excess of 30 mph especially going down this road and is there a camera or any speed calming measures – no. Not talking about 35 mph in a 30 mph zone here; some cars and vans must be doing at least 50-60 mph. At night it would not be a surprise if that is greater than 60 mph. The authorities harp on about 20mph zones – what a laugh, they cannot even manage the 30mph zones that we already have.
